“Control” begins with an old man (who we later learn is the architect that designed the headquarters for Wayne Industries) alone working. He sees an eerie tube, which we quickly learn is attached and controlled by a creepy man in a strange outfit. Then we see the old man wandering the streets mumbling, “He has my mind.” When a policeman asks who has control of his mind, he responds, “Cypher.”
Meanwhile, in the Batcave, Bruce Wayne and Katana are practicing fighting. Bruce gives many a critiques to Katana; the last of…

“Allies” begins with Tobias Whale robbing a Stagg Industries warehouse. Batman jumps them and apprehends Whale. Shortly thereafter, Gordon and the GCPD arrive. The lieutenant reams out Batman for not following protocol. When Batman rebuffs him, Gordon orders his men to arrest him. Batman drops a smoke bomb and escapes.
Back at the Batcave, preparations are underway to ready Katana to go out in the field. She is comically shown in a giant red suit. There is, of course, much annoying protest from Katana. She take soft the costume and puts…

This week's theme for Futures End, seems to be about power. How we use our influence of power to others, being powerless to others, being overpowered, choosing to let go of power, and trying to gain power. These are the themes I took from the five different stories this week, and you'll see how that applies when I get into spoilers.
The story this issue, doesn't seem to have a whole lot going on. The only action we get is from a new character, and was kind of confusing at the…

Episode two of Beware the Batman begins with Batman confronting a female villain (named Magpie) who, according to Batman, has robbed six warehouses thus far. We learn that her motive is not greed, but a severe case of A.D.O.S. (Attention Deficit – Ooh Shiny!). Mysteriously, though, she does take the time to wipe the memory of a man (Joe Braxton) working at the warehouse. This villainess does, however, posses tremendous acrobatic skills and retractable claws. Again, we are confronted with the creative team’s decision to go with the lesser known…

This story is told and shown through Alfred's eyes; and we as the reader see his thoughts as well. Alfred receives a call from Batman; a summons for help and to retrieve a new tranq gun from the Batcave and to get it to Batman as soon as possible. Simple enough? No. Alfred has to get acquainted to driving a Batmobile, is unable to get any assistance from Katana, crashes the Batmobile to avoid a boy in the street and has to catch the boy who has managed to come into possession…

In a recent interview with Newsarama, Scott Snyder talked about the recent introductions of Bluebird, Spoiler, and Batman's new generation of allies who will be female and the new mysterious sidekick in the Batcave.
Newsarama: Scott, I bet this was a fun day for you, wasn't it? For people to finally see this issue?
Scott Snyder: I know! I know, right? I'm excited. It was a fun issue to do. I'm really, really proud of it.
Newsarama: After reading the issue, someone asked me to, what's the first reaction you have to it?…

Batman + Man-Bat + Bat Queen + Holographic Batman + Batcave + pseudo-Batcave = one hella-batty issue of Detective Comics.
After being relegated to the back-ups of a long line of Detective Comics issues over the past six months, the brewing conflict between the Langstroms finally spills into the main pages of the series. Will Layman and Co. be able to make it all come together and work effectively? Let’s see…
Detective Comics #26 opens on a group of teenagers wandering through a bat cave. No, not ‘The Batcave’, just a random…

Opening in a style featuring large panels of artworks which fade in from obscurity is becoming a signature motif of the duo of Snyder and Capullo, and this repeated technique lets the reader know from the first page that, like the other ‘Zero Year’ issues of Batman so far, they’re in for a beautiful, thoroughly-written, informed and detailed chapter of one of DC’s best series’ right now.
And this issue does not disappoint. One of the strongest aspects of Batman #25 is the references to the breadth of Batman’s…

The first thing you notice on the cover page is that is one chapter story. Before I even had the chance to read the first panel this story was already on my good side. And it continued to be on my good side after I had read the story. This is an extremely untraditional story this is narrated and told from the perspective of the Batcave itself. We get to follow the story of the Batcave from the first time Bruce falls into…
