    The Dark Knight #16 8

    Touch of CrazyTo see this review with images, Click Here.I've been a harsh on Gregg Hurwitz recently, the writer of The Dark Knight. He just concluded his previous arch on the Scarecrow, and though it wasn't awful, it also wasn't good. Apparently, many others share my dislike for the series since not one of twenty people thought he was the best current Batman writer on the BatWatch poll. Still, he has a chance to redeem himself now with his current arch. However, its going to be an uphill battle...

And as far as Batman’s rogues go, I am less familiar with the Mad Hatter than most. On the surface he h...

    Right off the bat, the cover establishes that, like the Scarecrow arc, Gregg Hurwitz is making this more of a horror Batman series. The cover is deliciously creepy, with The Mad Hatter's eyes peeking right at you from the tiniest sliver of his visible face; and the balance with Batman coming out of the top of the hat is pretty great as well.Gregg Hurwitz was a HUGE improvement over the writing of David Finch, but in the long run, the Scarecrow arc was pretty shaky, and this new Mad Hatter arc is...
