Batman: The Dark Knight #2 was written by Paul Jenkins and drawn by David Finch. As usual, they co-plotted the issue.
The issue opens with Two-Face, who I commented looked like he was on steroids, beating the tar out of Batman. The motif of fear and our relationship to it continue as Batman's inner monologue during the beating. Two-Face tells Batman he's learned fear is what stops people from really living. He waxes poetic about how losing…

So today is the day that Batman: Arkham City hits North America, and although fans around the world will also soon have their copies of the game, there may be some people still on the fence about buying the game (but I haven't heard of one, yet). So I wanted to run through some of the great reasons to but the game and stay up all night playing the game.

There have already been a number of villains that have been announced for Batman: Arkham City, Rocksteady insisted not that long ago that they would not be revealing any more characters before the launch of the game. And although it seems that they in fact are not, it isn't stopping the gaming world from revealing some of the secrets that are in store for gamers in a little less than two weeks.
Playstation's online news magazine, Qore, revealed in a lengthy video that there are more villains than are expected. We have seen screenshots of Bane in the game,…

The penultimate week of The New 52's premiere month has brought us a lot of goodness and much controversy. But regardless of how different people may feel, these are the stories about the new Batman, and this series of articles will continue examining continuity and mythology elements we learn from the books where Batman appears. This week featured Batman #1 and an appearance in Catwoman #1.
SPOILER WARNING: This column assumes full knowledge of all books published this week.

In recent weeks we have finally been shown images of Anne Hathaway riding the Bat-pod. We have even been given glimpses of her stunt double in action riding the streets of Pittsburgh, as well. (And even a few of the rumored Bat-wing/Bat-plane, or whatever they plan to call it, and it looks epic as hell, kids.) Sadly, there are many out there who are criticizing the costume Ms. Hathaway is donning already. Shame on all of you. All…

Batman and Robin #22 brings to an end the short-lived Tomasi/Gleason run we were all so hyped up about. For the past two issues, we've been learning about the criminological leanings of the White Knight. We know he dopes his victims with Ketamine, issues instructions in their ear via a small receiver, and kills the relatives of anyone who spent time in Arkham. At the close of the last issue, we saw the bodies of several different people being prepared for…

This month, Batman: Streets of Gotham and its storyline “House of Hush” reach their conclusions, and if I had to choose any issue to leave on it would be this. The action is visceral, the plot twists are jarring, and there is limitless proof of the creative team’s outstanding abilities. It’s a shame that these qualities were missing from the majority of this arc’s run, a situation that was only magnified by the sheer volume of filler and interruptions…

This is the second issue in the long-awaited, long-advertised story arc from Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason. The first issue was less than promising, though an in improvement from the issues given to us before by Scott McDaniel and Paul Cornell.
The second issue opens with three angels, two children and one woman standing in the cold. The woman holds a device with a timer before they jump from the building, a voice over informing us this is the Langstrom family about…
