Product Description

Review

“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.

It took me a while to get into this book as I couldn't really connect with Dick Grayson as Batman. He's too "happy" to be filling the role of the Dark Knight, and the story would read much better as a Nightwing series. But then I realized if you took the Batman character out of this story entirely, it holds up extremely well on its own. Once I realized this the story became much more enjoyable, but it begs the question - does this make it a good "Batman" story? I'd argue no.

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!

This product is clearly laid out what you are getting and I have had no problem with Amazon buys since I started. It arrived in a very tightly sealed cardboard box, surrounded by bubble wrap. It felt like Christmas opening this, and if the product is not shown in a photo or describe in detail. Why order it, that right their is an alert flag. Came exactly the way I wanted it took in comic book form. ^.~ No, it is a quality buy, no ripped pages, looks like it was hot off the 'presses'

This was my first Dick Grayson Batman comic to read. I was pleasantly surprised. I wanted to give this a 4 star review. But by the end, I was blown away with the writing and plot twists and the way the characters played out. I won't give spoilers, but BAM. I haven't read any other Scott Snyder either, but I'll be keeping an eye out for his other stuff.

Even without the full spectrum of the regular villains and side characters, this one shone.
