Worst Puppet Show Ever

Of all the Batbooks that are out right now this will probably be the one that I will drop first if Tony S. Daniel remains on the book. The issue starts off with Batman as a captive of the Dollmaker and he is fighting a slew of fake jokers in an area while his limbs are bonded with high tensile wire. From there the story doesn’t go much further than Batman escaping and Dollmaker getting away. This issues biggest problem is that nothing happens at all. No character development, no story development, no interesting new twists, no anything. Like I said earlier, I’m probably going to drop this title with all the other Batbooks available, and if you haven’t picked up this title yet, do yourself a favor and don’t bother. It’s only saving grace—and I wouldn’t really call it that—Is a mysteriously homicidal little girl named Olivia, but other than that pick another title.
