Welcome back! Today we will be reviewing Batman #76 which is written by Tom King and has art by Tony S. Daniel.
I love this City of Bane story so far and I am really enjoying the direction that it is going. I really like Thomas Wayne Batman and Gotham Girl acting like the evil Batman and Robin team-up. I also really like the art and the feel of this book. I feel like the last two story arcs were a little slow, but City of bane has a good rhythm and theme to it that matches up to the rest of Tom King’s run.
What I liked about this issue was mostly the side stories that are going on during this City of Bane story arc. I like how Captain Atom shows up, I mean surely the superhero community has some issues with Bane taking over Gotham. I also really enjoyed Gotham Girl just wailing on him. But this lead to a great Moment between Tim Drake and Damian because they actually discuss why they aren’t welcome to Gotham and its one of the few times that the two have ever had a deep and emotional conversation. I am still waiting for Bruce and Selina to “completely” meet up again since they haven’t met since the failed wedding.
Overall, this was a really strong issue and I can’t wait to see how this story ends.
(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: 17.5 / 20
