Batman #27 Review
Scott Snyder once again produces a very good script in this issue, as although I still feel like it's taking up time prior to Batman's big encounter with the Riddler, it's still very dramatic. Snyder also manages to time everything well, as it wouldn't have been easy to follow up from the epic action sequence at the start of the issue, but he managed to do it in a way that was both intriguing without the pace changing too dramatically. On top of this Snyder also did a great job of showing more of Gordon's background, and how his characteristics were ever so slightly different back then (whilst still being overall good natured).
Greg Capullo once again did a phenomenal job of the artwork, and is still one of the things I love the most about this series. Capullo lays out his art in a way that captures each moment perfectly, allowing for every panel to be in it's own way very dramatic. Added to this the explosive action sequences and the way he shows character emotion and it's hard to think of the series being as good without his artwork. Capullo also continues to add the perfect dark tone this series needs, having a brilliant silhouette moment. On top of all this the colours from FCO Plascencia were once again outstanding, giving the perfect finish to Capullo's fabulous art.
