Batman: Detective Comics Vol. 5: A Lonely Place of Living (Rebirth) by James Tynion, IV continues this addicting story-line. I enjoyed this graphic novel, it has some great moments but I thought the narrative was convoluted and difficult to follow. One of the reasons I really enjoy comics is the ability to tell a story through words and pictures, it keeps the story both complex and clean if done right. I also thought that this was a departure from a “Batman” story into something else. There is a lot going on in this volume, time travel, older (and…

Tom King is quickly becoming one of my favorite comic book writers working today. The story is easy to follow, exciting, and the art work is solid, making the whole cast looking remarkable throughout. There is a stylistic break during the Swamp Thing story, but it fits very well and I didn’t mind it. Tom King is making his own Batman, taking advantage of the character’s history, weaknesses, flaws and, of course, his strength. He handles Bane very well, making him a villain which resides on the same side of the coin of the hero he is fighting. Mr. King enjoys elevating Batman…
