    My one real gripe with this series was the length. Only three issues? I mean, it did its job, it got in and out and left us with a more then decent Batman tale. Its not going to make for a great trade with only three issues, but maybe we can hope for a sequel. I believe Batman: Cacophony will stand the test of time as a well written Batman saga.

    Which brings me to the art of Walter Flanagan. Though I've certainly drilled this point home in my previous reviews of this series, it's worth reiterating just how amateurish Flanagan's work is. Whether he's failing to make sense of an action sequence, butchering the proportions of his character or just failing miserably at drawing a competent Batman, the quality of Flanagan's art never once matches that of a professional. At the very least, I guess it's good to know that if I had a friend who happened to be a famous film director, I too could probably draw a Batman comic. Read Full Review

    Pretty blah. An ending to the story, for sure, but just not spectacular. The fight dragged on because Batman decided his plan would be to wait to get stabbed and THEN fight the masked man even though he could easily beat the crap out of him. Still, there are a lot of interesting questions about the masked man and you’re left wondering a lot. The best part is the exploration of Batman’s no killing rule, but it dragged on a bit. The Joker’s drawing are inconsistent and awful, his beard changes color at one point. The story felt short, unrewarding, the only thing at stake is Batman’s no killing rule, but not even majorly and it could have been avoided. A mediocre ending to a less than mediocre series.
