I know that this is 'The Batman Universe' but with the new 'DCU Spotlight' feature now running on the website, I thought I'd take the opportunity to promote this brilliant comic. I'll only be reviewing issue one, but issue two comes out this week so you can always check it out yourself, and believe me, you'll want to!
