About: Batwoman, Vol. 2: Wonderland by Marguerite Bennett and James Tynion IV (illustrated by Steve Epting and Ben Oliver) finds the heroine battling the Many Arms of Death. This issue, part of DC Comics’ Rebirth, collects issues #7 – 11. My rating for Batwoman, Vol. 2: Wonderland — 3 Buy Batwoman, Vol. 2: Wonderland from Amazon.com* More Books by Marguerite Bennett More Books by JamesTynion IV Thoughts: Batwoman certainly is the new breakout character in the Rebirth DC universe. I really enjoyed the previous graphic novels I read and Batwoman, Vol. 2: Wonderland by Marguerite Bennett and James Tynion IV (illustrated by Steve Epting and Ben Oliver) was a solid edition. I like the new Arkham Asylum game style Scarecrow, but he still not a worthy villain – the writers solved that issue by making him a tool for the Many Arms of Death. There is very little character development to any of the characters in the book, very little interaction between Kate and her father (a major plot point in the series), which I thought was fascinating and could have really anchored the narrative. The art is great and matches the messy psyche of the story-line. This is one of…
The Victim Syndicate has turned all of Gotham against Batman and his team in protest. They also kidnapped Clayface while threating to release dangerous criminals from Arkham Asylum unless Batman unmasks himself on live TV.

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…
About: Batman Detective Comics (Rebirth) Vol. 3: League of Shadows by James Tynion IV. This volume collects issues #950-956 of the Rebirthed Batman Family Team-Up title. 184 pages Publisher: DC Comics Language: English ISBN-10: 1401276091 My rating for Batman Detective Comics (Rebirth) Vol. 3: League of Shadows — 5 Buy Batman Detective Comics (Rebirth) Vol. 3: League of Shadows from Amazon.com* More Books by James Tynion, IV Thoughts: I really believe that Batman Detective Comics (Rebirth) Vol. 3: League of Shadows by James Tynion, IV is one of the best graphic novels I read in the last few years. The team Batman put together of Batwoman (Kate Kane), Azarel, Batwing (Lucas Fox), Clayface (Basil Karlo), and Orphan (Cassandra Cain) is really coming together cohesively and make for an excellent, character driven storyline. This book is focused on Orphan, Cassandra Cain, daughter of assassins who was brought up to be a living weapon, and the new/old Batgirl. Orphan is my favorite character of the new Bat-people lineup, she has a great background story and is an all-around great character. Mr. Tynion has done a fantastic job on this issue, he raised the story and team building to another level. While the book certainly focuses on Orphan, several…
Batman and his villains always created mayhem wherever they fought, this time the innocent victims are fighting back. They blame Batman just as much as they blame the villains. Batman and his new team take on these troubled folks.
This is truly a cast book. The “Batmen” are just as interesting as the main hero himself, actually they are more interesting. It is refreshing to read a book where the heroes are just as interesting as the villains.
The Unknowns are a strange team up, which frankly I enjoyed. Clayface was my new favorite, and The Demon Etrigan is always fun to read. I don’t believe that Batwoman needed a team though, I enjoyed it much more when she was played off as being on the fringes of the Bat family, working alongside them but not with them.
