A weekend light reading review.

Scott Synder.  All-Star Batman, Volume 1: My Own Worst Enemy. Burbank, CA: DC Comics, April 25th, 2017. 192 pp.

4 out of 5

Purchase: Amazon

This is a volume that is a part of DC Comics’ recent “rebirth” reboot.  This particular work is on Batman.  I wanted to read this graphic novel largely due to the fact that Scott Synder wrote the story.  Synder’s previous stories has been good and I’m especially impressed with his Court of Owls.  While this particular work wasn’t as good as some of his previous works nevertheless you see the author’s creativity with how this story was told.

This is volume two of the new Batman series in the DC rebirth series.  It picks up where volume one left off in which Gotham Girl is need of help; specifically in order for Batman to help her he needs to find Psycho-Pirate to restore her mental state.  But for Batman to get Psycho-Pirate this requires Batman to go on an adventure outside of Gotham.

A weekend review of a fun read as a break from heavy theological reading.  I appreciate the publishers providing this review copy from before its publication!

A few months ago I read for the first time two comic books on the character “Green Hornet” that left me hooked so when I saw this story of Green Hornet and the Lone Ranger I felt compelled to read it right away.  I did not regret it.  Actually that is an understatement.  I enjoyed this work immensely.

From what little I know about DC Comics I believe their “Detective Comics” series is the longest series in comic book history and that’s largely due to the character Batman.  This is volume one of Detective Comics as part of DC Comics’ relaunched called “Rebirth” that started in 2016.  I’m still quite the rookie when it comes to Batman and this is the first Batman I read in the Detective Comics series and thus far I’m enjoying it.

Over the last year and a half I have really become a fan of Batman.  So as a new fan I could not wait to get my hands on this new Batman work titled “I am Gotham.”  This particular work is volume one in the new Batman in DC Comics’ 2016 relaunch which they have called “Rebirth.”  With this graphic novel as my first exposure to DC Comic’s Rebirth universe I must say that I’m excited to read and explore what else DC is doing with their other titles.
