Spoiler-Free Comic Book Review: Batman 1-7


Batman 1-7 (2011-2012)
Publisher:  DC Comics
Writer: Scott Snyder
Penciller: Greg Capullo
Review by: Will Mitchel of Completely Comics

Batman #1-7. OMG.. why haven't I been reading this book? Hmm.. basically because I have to be in the right mood to read Batman. So, it's taken me seven months to pick it up. Okay.. so I devoured it, and loved every morsel. 

From the mystery of the Court of Owls, to the tension with Dick. To the worry that Jim and Alfred have for him. This is a fantastic story arc, all the way around. We learn more about the mystery of Gotham's past and the Court of Owls in bits and pieces through out the story, just enough to tease us to keep coming back for more. Scott Snyder is a machine. He was designed to write Batman.

The artwork is fantastic. The art style compliments the story perfectly. The art goes a little wonky during Bruce's labyrinth visit, but that's only because he was hallucinating. The art is dark and foreboding when it needs to be, and gets you deeper involved into the story. 

The revelations we find out in #7 are mind-blowing. You will be blown away by this book. Do yourself a favor and go buy this. 5/5.
