Writer & Artist: Liam Sharp
Batman arrives in Tir Na Nóg to help Wonder Woman solve the mystery of a murdered god. But while he may be the World’s Greatest Detective, he soon learns that the techniques he uses on our world may not aid him in this strange new one. As the investigation continues and new suspects are revealed, this dynamic duo learns that each may be more dangerous than the last.
This book is starting to feel like a crime thriller, something that Robert Parker would write, but with mythical figures abound as Sharp lays a twisted road ahead of Diana and Bruce. Batman, in this issue, serves as the reader’s eyes and ears into this world, as Wonder Woman is more accustomed to the parallels, while Batman is trying to understand the difference.
Batman and Wonder Woman get into a fight with one of the warring tribes, one they quickly extinguish, showing the might of both characters. Lastly, we meet the true villain behind all the chaos and misunderstanding, one that may be more than a match for Bruce and Diana.
There are no negatives worth mentioning in this issue.
Buy, as the story not only is well developed but is aesthetically pleasing.
