A fantastic story. I'm glad I didn't pick up the original #s 13-17 books as they came out and waited for this beautifully printed piece of art. The Joker, moving the mythos into the future, with this face? An incredible stroke of genius. It will, however, be my last super hero book for a long time.




DC said they'd make their books $2.99 so everyday readers could afford them. Rebooting the heroes allows a new generation to identify and take ownership of the stories. DC was looking to expand the readership.Well, the books at the comic store are $3.99. And this volume, the third of the Batman reboot, actually requires a little set up. If you've read volumes 1 and 2, you won't have it though. The set-up came in the first volume of the Detective reboot. So the financial investment, the commitment to characters, the effort required to fully understand the story and the legend, are already requirements guaranteeing an elite readership. I don't have it in me anymore. 




So what can a review of a comic provide? I'm not sure what some one would want. The acetate wrapping cover is very cool; something I appreciate in a non-digital book. The printing is sumptuous, Greg Capullo's and Jon Glapion's artwork stunning, and Scott Snyder's spinning of the tale deeply inspired. It arrived quickly and in perfect condition. All the pages turned.But DC? Folks? Life is too damned short. I don't have what it takes to be in your elite club.
