Book Description

Nov. 29 2011 Batman (DC Comics)
A NEW YORK TIMES #1 Bestseller

In "The Black Mirror," a series of brutal murders pushes Batman's detective skills to the limit and forces him to confront one of Gotham City's oldest evils. Helpless and trapped in the deadly Mirror House, Batman must fight for his life against one of Gotham City's oldest and most powerful evils!

Then, in a second story called "Hungry City," the corpse of a killer whale shows up on the floor of one of Gotham City's foremost banks. The event begins a strange and deadly mystery that will bring Batman face-to-face with the new, terrifying faces of organized crime in Gotham.

This volume collects Detective Comics #871-881.

“The art is beautiful. The writing is terrifyingly spectacular.” —IGN

“This is going to be one of those Batman stories I remember for a very long time, as a perfect marriage of story and art.”—iFanboy

“Scott Snyder, with rotating artists Jock and Francisco Francavilla, has solidified the title as the place for serious crime fiction in the Bat-universe.”—The A.V. Club

“Detective Comics follows the tried-and-true formula that has been working for decades, yet it also adds layers Batman with some much-needed character flaws. Not to mention, there's a heaping splash of atmospheric art by Jock.”—Complex Magazine

“Scott Snyder is, simply put, doing a career-making job…this is just killer stuff here….If you’re only reading one Batman book, it should be this one, folks.” —MTV Geek

"The best Batman arc in years."—Omnivoracious

First off Scott Snyder has quickly become one of the best Batman writers of the past 20 years, and if he continues on with the quality he has shown so far we will one day be calling him the greatest of all time. This is a very bold statement, and if you doubt me I suggest you read this book.

What he does better than any writer is make Gotham, and it's surroundings characters in their own right. It is dark, dirty, and scary. Just want we should want from a Batman story. This is 11 issues of genius material that you will not soon forget. This is the only book {comic} I have ever read that made my heart race, literally. This story lines are so tense it feels like your are reading and old school Stephen King novel. Batman {Dick Grayson} is shown as a very different Batman, he is unsure of himself, and makes some careless mistakes that we would never see Bruce make. This adds to the appeal of this book, and makes us understand the difference between the master and the student.

The art by Mr. Jock & Fracivillia is perfect for this story, dark, gritty, and hazy.

BTW. Jim Gordon's character in the Black Mirror is just as good as the one we see in Frank Miller's Year One. His side story here is the creepiest thing I have ever read. That's right, brilliant......

Buy this book before you buy any other book.

and boy does he deliver!!! Scott Synder is one of the best bat writers in a very long time, his fresh take on batman is outstanding. I was skeptical of this story line at first but when i finished reading this gem all that vanished! The art work is outstanding and really sets a dark mood. The hardcover is well made with high quality paper, a great book for any Batman fan!
