Batman 52 - #1
Got to say, not been too great a fan of the Batbooks the last few years, not really liking the way the characters been going and the developments made.
So been looking forward to the reboot and kinda hoping it'd go back to basics - my prefered, comfort zone area for the guy.
What do i think then?
Really rate Scott Synder after his work on Detective just lately, as he was focusing on the, er, detective side of the character.
Which i'm happy to see he continues here. A nice, stepping in point with Bats brawling with a bunch of classic characters before getting into the mystery.
Could do without the accessing the Bat-Computer via a contact lens and the EMP Mask - with this sort of technology, how can anyone below the biggest of super villains be a challenge for him?
Don't know Greg Caullo's work at all, and i see there's been a bit of bitching on him having th gig, but what's the problem?
Reckon he's terrific, with a real Jim Lee look to his art, and his versions of the iconic villains are brilliant - Scarecow being tops, followed by the dripping Two face. Dunno about a curly Joker though.
All in all, great start.
