Welcome back! Today we will be reviewing The Batman who Laughs #7 which is written by Scott Snyder and art by Mark Simpson.
The Batman who laughs was introduced in Dark Knights Metal as a Batman from the Dark multiverse. He is a Batman, who was poisoned by the Joker and has the intelligence of Batman and the insanity of the Joker. So, He’s a really awesome character I am so glad that we got a series for him which leads up to DC’s Year of the villain. We know that the Batman who laughs is supposed to be infecting characters in the DC Universe, so this book was meant to build up to this insane event.
Since this is the last issue, I am not worrying too much about spoilers. If you are reading this, then you should already know that the Batman who laughs is about to succeed in transforming Batman into another Batman who laughs. Meanwhile, Jim Gordon is trying to stop the city from being poisoned and the Grim Knight. So what do I think about what happens in this ending? I love it. I love how Batman wins and outsmarts the Batman who laughs and I really like how it is written. It allows Batman to overcome an impossible foe and I really enjoy how Bruce feels like he didn’t really win in the end even though he has the Batman who laughs locked up in the Batcave. I also really enjoyed how James Gordon was written and how his story ends. Scott Snyder has always done a great job with the character and does an incredible job writing the relationship between James and his father. It was well written and the art is dark and shows the insanity that Bruce is going through.
Overall, the book is great and sets up a really interesting event in the DC Universe.
(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?)
