Batman #692

Wasn't this fun? That's maybe why in the past few years Tony Daniel's been a Bat-fav for me? Morrison's is the most challenging, Diggle's was very Dark Knight-ish, Dini's was very classical, and Tony Daniel's is very Michael Bay. That doesn't sound good, but it's a great read. Don't get me wrong--it's not Batman acting like a maniacal-meathead like Miller's All-Star Bats, it's definitely Nightwing under the Cowl, just with more explosions, splash pages, sinister bosses, and a continuing thread from Loeb's classic Dark Victory. Yes, one of the books that inspired the current Nolan run of Batman movies is now being continued in Daniel's continuation of BFTC. I loved BFTC and this takes off quite perfectly without totally nudging on Winick's quickie. Let's hope the quality continues.

It was a definite improvement over the last two issues of Winick and Bagley's arc, which started out great but ended badly. Daniel's definitely got me interested.

Nice ish. So far, it seems to be a great story. Daniel's art is fantastic, and I was impressed with his writing, as well. Not many can do both the writing and artwork, but Tony seems to be pulling it off nicely.

I didn't care much for it. I love Winick and Bagley and I much preferred their stuff. Daniel is okay, but I don't love him.

I didn't know who some of the people with Black Mask were. What the hell was Black Mask wearing? It looked ridiculous.

The only thing I liked were the Dick/Selena scenes.

Yeah I really enjoyed those exchanges, they were the highlight of the book. PLUS Selena was stunning in that bathing suit.

I loved issue 692, I liked Daniel's BFTC mini and this is good as well. Black Mask looked a bit more sci-fi than usual, but I liked it.

He looked like some bondage, goth priest or something.

I enjoyed Daniel's first issue of the new run. I geeked out alittle at the Long Halloween/Dark Victory nod. It's cool they're expanding on that story. Honestly, IMO Batman has been damn solid for 2 years now

Batman #693/B&R #6

I loved both Batman books today, I liked Batman & Robin a bit more though- but both were great. I'm loving these 2 books.

Batman 693

Didn't care for this one: Correction, it was decent and all until halfway when the pacing shifted abruptly for no real reason. Again, the art was wonderful, but the book feels like it it has no real direction. In any case, overall, I didn't like this one.

B&R #6
Very good book. I loved how Dick acknowloedged all the stuff Todd has done over his lifetime. Too often people discount Todd because the Joker killed him. In any case, I liked the story overall and liked the ending as well. Maybe because it's Morrison, I know something big and grand is being set-up so it's fun to see it all coming together. Even though the plot is in it's infancy, one can see the pieces come together and see something grimly forming. Even more so, one can see how Todd's idelogical war with Dick will play a part in all of this, even if Todd is removed from the stage at this point. His chilling comments about it becoming worse, serves as great fortelling of the horror that faces Dick and Damian. In short, I liked this book. I also liked the art, though I would have preferred something cleaner, along the lines of RIP or the main Batman series.

Interesting that they brought back Tommy Elliot looking like Bruce. He also made an apperance in Red Robin #6, also still looking like Bruce. I have a feeling that Bruce Wayne will return in issue #700.

No, seems too obvious. Plus, the statement that he'd be at the gala, in close proximity with people who think they know him leads me to think that...

Its an ongoing thing with Tommy Elliot aka Hush had himself done up via plastic surgery as Bruce Wayne during the "heart of hush" storyline. Since then he's been captured and used to keep up the appearance that Bruce Wayne is alive inspiteof his fate from Final Crisis.

Batman #693

A return to the greatness that was Morrison's run. And now that Morrison is on Batman & Robin, we get 2 runs that are excellent. No offense to Judd Winick, who did at least an admirable job clearing things up after BFTC, but Tony Daniel has learned from his partnership with Mo' by doing all the things that made his predecessor's run so special: by not only working in 3 issue arcs, but planting seeds to widen the story into epic proportions. It'll be interesting to see how this run and Batman & Robin coincide upon the conclusion of Blackest Night, and that's just assuming all this awesomeness just ties in together. Let's hope.

As for the issue itself, you know the art's fantastic. We also get deeper into the personal life of Dick Grayson (and the love triangle that places him with Oracle and Huntress), and the inclusion of David Hyne's storyline in Arkham Asylum. Connecting all the dots is what makes the Gotham universe so special. It's awfully difficult to do, but the more these dots are connected, the better off Batman family readers will be. We're seeing Huntress in multiple books, Catwoman in multiple books (now with her appearance in this story as well), Two-Face lurking in a few, and Hush has me intrigued the most as Bruce Wayne. He might just have Gotham by the balls.

This was okay. I didn't love it, but I thought it was better than the last issue. I still liked Judd Winick's issues a LOT better.

I do like the art here. It's weird sometimes I hate Daniel's art (like in RIP), sometimes I like it (like last Batman #692) and sometimes I really like it (like BftC and this issue). I really like his Robin here.

I'm digging Daniel's run so far. It has a good pace to it. I had a thought about the identity of Black Mask, but I'm holding onto it for now. I like the possible love triangle that could be brewing here as well.
