As I’m quite new to the whole comic book business, I just have to wonder whether it’s absolutely necessary to make the story-line so gruesome, that you’d think it’s been thought up by your elder brother at a camping trip to scare you or lose your appetite…
In this volume of Batman, there is the Joker. I don’t like him (nor other villains either, but he’s just a psychopath isn’t he?) and that’s why I’m not too excited about this volume. Also, because the previous Batman comic books I’ve read have had some mystery, then this one paled in comparison and all the mystery has been substituted with violence and pure horror.
Since in this book the Joker is after Batman’s sidekicks (who are almost total strangers to me), then it was all sort of a blur… maybe with a fan’s commentary I would have liked it more.
I think I’d go back to pink unicorns and butterflies now…
