review Batman Vol 1 I Am Gotham Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB read & download ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB Û Tom King Batman is Gotham City's greatest protector But now he's not alone There are two new heroes in town a pair of masked metahumans with the powers of Superman and a devotion to preserving all that is good about this twisted city Calling themselves Gotham and Gotham Girl they’ve saved Batman’s life fought by his side and learned from his example But what happens if Gotham’s. Full confession I have not been keeping up on Batman in a while Part of it is due to simple fatigue of all the rebooting and retconning that both DC and Marvel are doing these days A larger part was that Batman v Superman managed to kill my bat enthusiasm for the character A feat that even Batman Robin didn t manage to do Nice work Zack Snyder But I saw Lego Batman recently and it pepped me back up enough to give this a go even though I had no idea what the recent Rebirth did to bat worldAs expected I was confused Who is Duke Thomas Is he a new Robin His outfit doesn t look like Robin but he seems to be filling the Robin role Wait Bruce references Dick Grayson so I guess he still used to be Robin Oh there s the Jason Todd outfit in the memorial tube so that probably means that the Death in the Family storyline happened right Or is he back from the dead and a bad guy again But if he s back from the dead then why does Batman still have a memorial to himPutting aside all that nonsense this wasn t half bad After a one issue fight with Calendar Man the larger story shifts to Batman meeting two very powerful superheroes calling themselves Gotham and Gotham Girl who seem dedicated to helping him protect the city Since the first thing they do is save Batman s life things start well and Batman kinda likes the idea of having powerful allies not named Superman around to help out But it s Gotham City so things go sideways and all hope is destroyedIt s a decent enough story and it ends on a cliffhanger that s got me interested in what happens next The art is pretty good and I like this new Bat suit It is new right This also is a version of Batman that walks the line between dark avenger haunted by tragedy and an actual comic book superhero who does comic book superhero kind of things The dynamic between Bruce and Alfred was a very well done and I particularly liked a scene in which they re essentially saying goodbye as Batman is in what he thinks will be his final momentsNot too shabby Now I just gotta figure who the hell Duke Thomas is Essays Biographical Critical and Historical IIlustrative of the Rambler Adventurer Idler and of the Various Periodical Papers Volume 1 rebooting and Captain Action Riddle of the Glowing Men retconning that both DC and Marvel are doing these days A larger part was that Batman v Superman managed to kill my bat enthusiasm for the character A feat that even Batman Robin didn t manage to do Nice work Zack Snyder But I saw Lego Batman Unbridled Unlikely Lovers #1 recently and it pepped me back up enough to give this a go even though I had no idea what the Romancing the Werewolf recent Rebirth did to bat worldAs expected I was confused Who is Duke Thomas Is he a new Robin His outfit doesn t look like Robin but he seems to be filling the Robin How to Do What You Love & Earn What You’re Worth as a Programmer role Wait Bruce The Business Romantic references Dick Grayson so I guess he still used to be Robin Oh there s the Jason Todd outfit in the memorial tube so that probably means that the Death in the Family storyline happened Victory Over Death right Or is he back from the dead and a bad guy again But if he s back from the dead then why does Batman still have a memorial to himPutting aside all that nonsense this wasn t half bad After a one issue fight with Calendar Man the larger story shifts to Batman meeting two very powerful superheroes calling themselves Gotham and Gotham Girl who seem dedicated to helping him protect the city Since the first thing they do is save Batman s life things start well and Batman kinda likes the idea of having powerful allies not named Superman around to help out But it s Gotham City so things go sideways and all hope is destroyedIt s a decent enough story and it ends on a cliffhanger that s got me interested in what happens next The art is pretty good and I like this new Bat suit It is new テンカウント 4 right This also is a version of Batman that walks the line between dark avenger haunted by tragedy and an actual comic book superhero who does comic book superhero kind of things The dynamic between Bruce and Alfred was a very well done and I particularly liked a scene in which they You Left Early re essentially saying goodbye as Batman is in what he thinks will be his final momentsNot too shabby Now I just gotta figure who the hell Duke Thomas is

review Batman Vol 1 I Am Gotham Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB read & download ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB Û Tom King Tman Vol 1 I Am Gotham the beginning of an all new saga in the life of the Dark Knight from superstars Tom King Grayson and David Finch Wonder Woman featuring an all star cast of creators such as Scott Snyder Batman The Court Of Owls Ivan Reis Justice League and Mikel Janín Justice League Dark This great starting point graphic novel collects Batman Rebirth #1 and Batman #1 6. The latest Rebirth series for Batman starts with I Am Gotham where Gotham and Gotham Girl are introduced to our favorite hero I thought that the graphics here were on par with those of Snyder s previous Batman New 52 cycle that started with Night of the Owls but I appreciated the plot a bit less with its orgy of other DC heroes brought in with little interest to the plot IMHO and I found G and G Girl mostly uninteresting Well I am still on deck to try I Am Bane perhaps it will be a bit better

review Batman Vol 1 I Am Gotham Ï eBook or Kindle ePUB read & download ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB Û Tom King New guardians go bad What if they blame the Dark Knight for the darkness that threatens to drown their city When sinister forces are unleashed that can warp the minds of men and make heroes into monsters the time will come for Batman and his allies to decide once and for all Is Gotham a force for goodor an engine of evil From the blockbuster DC Universe Rebirth event comes Ba. I m not a hardcore DC guy Relative to the average person on the street I suppose I m like Braniac when it comes to DC knowledge relative to actual DC acolytes however I m like Solomon Grundy appropriate as I post this on a Monday I ve dabbled with DC in the manner of a dilettante for some 25 or 30 years now so I ve spent many an hour with BatmanSupermanGreen Laternet al But I haven t followed DC in the same way I have Marvel who by contrast I ve basically given a colonoscopy to by being so far up its backside which is to say that with some exceptions Crisis on Infinite Earths Identify Crisis a few others I haven t made it a point to read all of the world spanning continuity altering crossovers and am not particularly knowledgeable about what s what these days That s a long winded way of saying that I know about afterbirth far than I ever needed to really than I do DC s Rebirth crossover so I came into this with zero background about why we re hitting the reset button yet again on the DCU That s a good and a bad thing I suppose I m not bringing any anger or delight from reading Rebirth but I m also fairly clueless about whether or not this makes sense coming out of itOn its own merit this is an engaging tale of the Batman with art by David Finch that is well suited to the both the tale itself and the Gotham setting generally When I weigh the merits of a Batman story I m looking for a few key elements some sort of mystery that serves as a showcase for Batman s detective skills not a major focus but covered a throwdown with a classic member of Batman s inimitable rogues gallery absent sadly lots of great moodyatmospheric shots of Gotham check Alfred playing a key role check fun gadgets check and Batman showing some semblance of character beyond being an autonomous crime fighting machine check So a solid showing that nets out somewhere just north of 35 starsSide note is there a uninteresting alter ego in comics than Bruce Wayne Every few issues we get a page and a half of Bruce showing up late for some charity function dancing with a model and then running off to go to Batman things I get that Bruce IS Batman in a way that say Peter Parker is not Spider Man so there s not really much separation or point in dwelling on Bruce s non existent personal life but it feels like a giant missed opportunity to not do something with the man when he s not running around with rubber nipples corrupting youngsters wearing green tights
