Ignition!; Strange Bedfellows last edited by njg5595 on 08/23/18 07:50PM View full history

An all-new Batman series by the DETECTIVE COMICS creative team of Paul Dini and Dustin Nguyen! As a new Batman rises on the streets of Gotham City, the heroes, villains and citizens take notice. How will the police feel about this new Batman, and can he control the crime in Gotham the way the old Batman did?

This new series also features a regular ongoing co-feature starring Manhunter written by Marc Andreyko and illustrated by Georges Jeanty (Buffy Season 8)! Kate Spencer lost a friend during the chaos of BATTLE FOR THE COWL, and now she wants payback. As usual, she'll use any means necessary to get it.

This comic starts with Commissioner Gordon and his Gotham City Police Unit going to a local jewel shop. Harley Quinn is in there alone with the cashier who fainted because he knew who she was. Harley exits the building and tells Gordon that it was all a big misunderstanding and that she was just trying to shop. Gordon is surprised that she had money, which she got for helping Catwoman get even with Hush. Batman then tells Harley that she should get out of town to start a new life. Abuse then appears for the very first time. He goes a girl named Katie from getting sold to a man. Later Firefly creates a chemical to set the body of another person, to flames. Firefly lets his chemical loose in the Gotham City subway, while Damian Wayne visits Hush. Damian then leaves – and as Robin – saves a man in a car, who is on fire. Batman then saves another man in front of Gordon and then gives Gordon's Police Unit, 10 Foam Capsule launchers to stop people from burning. The comic ends with Batman and Robin staring at a burning Batman emblem spread over Gotham.

Paul Dini continues to prove himself as the seminal Batman scribe 0

Wolfman who? Starlin what? With well over a decade of penning some of the Dark Knight's greatest yarns, including everything from the animated series to the printed page, Paul Dini has become the Batman scribe of our generation and his talent in storytelling, and the artistic chemistry he shared with Dustin Nguyen during their Detective run, carries over to the new ongoing Streets of Gotham. Readers will hit the ground running with this first issue that attacks the new Batman from a completely d...

Best of the 'Batman:Reborn' so far. 0

Ill just come out and say it first, yes surprisingly this is best Bat book so far of the ‘Batman: Reborn’ line. I can hear the Paul Dini fans laughing and yelling ‘I told you so’ and they would be right. Like most people I think I was most excited about Morrison’s Batman & Robin #1, which was good, and I’m looking forward to where that is going but Streets of Gotham for me has topped that for an issue no. 1 and setting up my excitement for the series. Firstly this issue had a big cast, betw...
