    Fun, but poorly edited

    Batman: Battle for the Cowl is Tony S. Daniel's predictable-but-entertaining follow-up to Grant Morrison's off-beat and mind-bending Batman: R.I.P. and Final Crisis. Morrison crafted a story arc that pushed Batman (Bruce Wayne) to his limits, testing the very fiber of the character before apparently killing one of DC Comic's biggest icons. Tony Daniel was the artist on R.I.P and several other Morrison storylines, and art is truly where Daniel shines. Every frame is iconic, giving you a visual sense of the underlying moods, emotions, and motivations of each character. Daniel wastes not one single pencil stroke in depicting the struggle of Batman's allies and enemies to fill the vacuum - or take advantage of it - left by the seeming demise of Bruce Wayne.

    The story itself is fun, although very predictable. Bruce Wayne's long-time protege and former partner Dick Greyson, the original Robin who later became Nightwing, leads Bruce Wayne's allies in the continuing struggle to keep the citizens of Gotham City safe from the criminal elements that infest the city. The story goes through several predictable-but-entertaining turns until reaching a conclusion that fans of comics will find satisfying, though hardly surprising.

    One of the strengths of this collection is also a surprising weaknees. Battle for the Cowl includes the two "book-end" Gotham Gazette stories by Fabian Nicieza. The stories show several of Bruce Wayne's friends and allies and what those people are doing to get by in a world without Batman. The stories were originally published to book-end the Battle for the Cowl mini-series, and their inclusion here is a nice treat. What is inexcusable, however, is the placement of these stories at the end of the book. Rather than editing the book to include these two supplements in their proper reading order, the editors chose to place these issues at the end of the collection. With DC putting out collected editions such as Final Crisis that include supplemental issues in their proper reading order, Battle for the Cowl just has a lazy feel to it by inserting these stories in at the end.

    Although predictable, Battle for the Cowl has some great moments, highlighted by Tony S. Daniel's artwork. The story is worth reading, although only as a complement to Grant Morrison's far more interesting work on R.I.P., Final Crisis, and the on-going Batman & Robin series.

    Who will be the Bat?

    This story begins after the departure of Bruce Wayne. The other Gotham heroes are frantically looking for someone to fill his Bat Boots before the villains of Gotham get too uppity. Black Mask, Two-Face and Penguin have the city crumbling and 3 of the Robins give being Batman a try before the debate is settled. While the book is a bit disjointed, it is a solid connector from the era of the Wayne Batman to a new one.

    Beautiful art, OK story.

    "Battle for the Cowl" is a fairly necessary storyline, explaining Dick Grayson's choice to become the new Batman. Unfortunately, this chapter of Bruce's death and return was not penned by Grant Morrison, making it a fairly weak segment of the story. Tony Daniel may not be a great writer, but with this series he makes up in visuals what he lacks in substance. Nightwing swinging through the rooftops of Gotham has never looked so good. The plot falters most in the third chapter, with the villain defeated too slowly, leaving only one page (one!) to show Dick's transformation into Batman. Some quieter character moments would have been appreciated. Readers should look to Batman #687 and Batman and Robin #1 for a better exploration of Dick's choice, and his mourning of Bruce.

    A must for the Batman fanatic.

    Although Dick Grayson has stepped in as the man underneath the cowl and cape, he brings his own unique Batman to Gotham and doesn't disappoint as the caped crusader. The storyline is fantastic, imaginative and explained easily through character specific speech and thought bubbles. The artwork keeps the Gotham flair alive and vivid, showing the characters and the scenery with all their glory. Don't miss this great title. Highly recommended.
