Detective Comics #937 picks right up on the tail end of #936. We see the new Bat-Family working their way through the sewers in an attempt to escape their new foe. What does this turn of events mean? A new militaristic Batman, Inc.? or is it something more. Throughout the issue, we learn more and more about the meaning of Colonel Kane’s mission and his Batman military unit!
In the mean time, Batman is being held captive by these men. They have taken him and are studying everything they can lead by a new villain! or maybe an ally? Batman himself isn’t sure what to make of this young new person.
This story just keeps winding itself up and unleashing new and interesting characters for us to meet. Not only does it show us new characters, but it shows us new faces on some old ones.
I don’t have anything negative to report! The issue was interesting and had wonderful art. The depictions of the characters in the art are very unique from the New-52/DC You versions and yet clearly the same characters. The art is a joy to see.
This issue continues this interesting story sown back in the soil of Detective Comics #934, the tension is building in this arc and will surely deliver a huge climax.
