Review: Detective Comics #969

[Editor’s Note: This review may contain spoilers]

Writer: James T Tynion IV

Artists: Raúl Fernández and Alvaro Martinez


“FALL OF THE BATMEN” part one! Everyone in Batman’s orbit is broken somehow—some more than others. For Clayface, keeping the pieces of his psyche together has been a years-long struggle…and it’s a war he may be about to lose! And as the team tries to pull itself back together, their enemies have learned something from Batman’s newfound spirit of cooperation…and have formed a cabal of their own!


The art by the new team gives these characters a slightly different look, one that seems to suit them a bit more, as the aesthetic borders on realistic. The issues within the Bat Family shows a complex set of stories where each member has their own problems. This new faction made up of some of the most treacherous villains in Gotham, looks like they give the Bat family a run for their money. This story by Tynion, looks like it is trying to build on the momentum from “ A Lonely Place for Living”, as he told a sentimental story with the last one. This one looks to test the bonds of the Bat Family.


There are no negatives worth mentioning in this issue.


Buy, as everything Tynion has touched including Detective Comics is a class in master storytelling.
