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!
(How good is the story? Does it stand up to others?)
(Does it tell the story? Does it work well with the character?)
(Does this story need to be told? Is it helping the Character?)
(Is the character represented well? Does the writer understand the character?)
Total: 14 / 20
