Seppin Reviews: Detective Comics 1008

Welcome back! I am back to reviewing my weekly comics again and this week we will be reviewing Detective Comics #1008 written by Peter Tomasi and art by Doug Mahnke.




Detective Comics has become more interesting to me recently. I am not a fan of James Tynion IV, so I wasn’t all that interested in his work on DC (Detective Comics). However, I really like Peter Tomasi and I enjoy what he is doing with DC. I feel like he is bringing more of the fun Batman and more crazy stories that I love. It contrasts to Tom King’s more serious and dangerous Batman run that is going on currently.

So in this issue, we see more of a filler comic. But I can’t help but love it. I love how the Joker and his dialogue is written in this comic. It reminds me of things that Mark Hamil would say in BTAS. I love that and I also really enjoyed Batman’s interaction in this comic. It feels refreshing and humorous. reading Batman has become more light-hearted and allows for great moments as Joker basically takes Batman on a date through an amusement park. This is the most BTASesqu story I have read in a long time. I love it! As for the offer at the end, I am interested to see what becomes of Mr. freeze and what type of story Peter Tomasi is devising for him.

Overall, it’s a great and fun ride!
