As the mystery of Grotesk deepens, a vicious new player enters the game - a Japanese yakuza named Johnny Karaoke! Batman confronts Karaoke and his murderous Geisha Grrls while the monstrous serial killer Grotesk strikes once again!
Batman #660 is more filler. We are just wasting time until Morrison and Kubert return to this title. This issue is a combination of a boring story and drab artwork. That is hardly a recipe for success. Hold off buying Batman until the regular creative team makes their return. Trust me, you aren't missing anything. Read Full Review
While the story is not that great (as expected from a filler arc), Tom Mandrakes art is just as good as it was back during the 80s. I love the edgy and dark feel to his work. The art does suit (and Mandrakes always has suited) the Dark Knight very well. The action sequences, like the battle with the female ninjas in the elevator, are well-drawn, and they look and feel like true Batman. Unfortunately, once again the artwork just doesnt save this book, and unless you NEED your Batman, you can skip out on the rest of this arc and pick the title back up once Morrison and Kubert come back.
