    But despite the improvement in writing, the art remains a major problem. Flanagan continues to have some fundamental problems with anatomy, perspective and storytelling, and still can't draw Batman the same way twice, except when he draws Batman's cowl as a two-dimensional glob of ink. In the end, his shortcomings as an artist will likely overshadow anything Smith is able to accomplish with this series. Read Full Review

    Batman: Widening Gyre #2 is solid enough, but the story definitely needs to pick up a bit before I can fully commit to the entire series. Read Full Review

    The art style is about the same as the previous issue, not incredible but consistently better than some of Flanagan's other works, which I largely appreciate and applaud. The story is gripping, I feel a deep desire to know what's going to happen next (so much so, I have a hard time writing this right now because I want to read the next). I felt more drawn in with fewer villains to deal with, but the flashback sequence didn't click with me. I didn't completely understand the point as anything more than "Batman doesn't trust anyone", which is something we know and assume about Batman. Felt redundant, but was still fun to see Supes back in action. Overall gripping with an ending that I did not expect in the slightest. Excited for more!
