Bullet Points Review: Batman Begins... again! and how!

  • Truly a superb beginning for Batman. I must say Batman Begins.. Again!!
  • The issue opens with short introduction of Gotham citiy's villains and how it is a city that truly is under Batman's wings!
  • Batman shows his raw detective skills & as usual working with Jim Gordon.
  • Art is simply UNIQUE. UNIQUE. UNIQUE. UNIQUE. Damn I cant say that more! It is as if an animated picture is moving before your eyes. What more can be a delight than a 2 page spread of Batcave! This issue is GOLD damn it!
  • There is introduction of Dick Grayson, Damian Wayne & Tim Drake (as themselves and not in their suits in this issue though).
  • I am just spellbound by the tech stuff in this issue: Dick talking to Bruce wearing EMP mask of Joker. That was a good trick pulled on reader for a moment there :)
  • Now tech did I say? Burce wears contact lens with remote access to computer in Batcave. Bruce Wayne runs diagnostic as he goes to a Wayne Enterprises gathering to give a speech (oh and THAT is an awsome speech that he throws in...)
  • Not just that as Bruce talks to different folks in the party, he has the identity reported to him from the computer back at Batcave. Yes, as Dick says "wherever you go the batcave goes with you!". Damn right there Dick!!!
  • There is a death of someone without ID in Gotham that Batman investigates with his awesome forensic skills only to find out that there is some owl symbol associated, a message that "Bruce Wayne will die tomorrow"
  • and ends with an amazing twist - yes - if you think that I have already given you spoilers here - read it yourself. There is one BIG twist at the end which will make you pick up the next issue for sure!!
  • Full bloody 5 stars for this issue.
  • Value for money: 200%!!!!

    Last year, Scott Snyder undertook an epic that gave Detective Comics its finest storyline with The Black Mirror, in which he put former Batman Dick Grayson face the worst Gotham City has to offer. As the issues progressed, it became evident that his writing was tailor-made for Batman stories, as he concluded The Black Mirror and Gates of Gotham, with co-writer Kyle Higgins. Now, with DC Comics entering Week 3 of The New 52, Batman sees itself being wr...

    The Story: Bruce Wayne delivers a speech about his future plans for Gotham but has to leave the party to investigate a crime scene where he finds a shocking discovery. My Thoughts:With the new DC reboot, this was one of the series I was anticipating the most. Aside from it being Batman, the names Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo alone are enough to make you want to buy this. I had complete and utter faith in the creative team that they would deliver a thrilling series and they sure didn't disappoin...
