What a surprising book, both in its quality and its approach. A very interesting take on Batman and in a way most won't suspect. Leon's art is superb adding to the immersion and emotion of the book. ANyone interested in a different kind of Batman story should definitely check this series out.

Matches_Malone reviewed Batman Annual #2 Nov 30, 2017

Every time I'm ready to give up on King's Batman run he writes one issue that just makes me question everything. This is easily King's best Batman issue yet and makes you a believer in the "Bat" and "Cat" engagement. Weeks' art is just nigh unbeatable as well, wish he would become a mainstay on the series. The issue also stands completely on its own, a rarity nowadays, and anyone could jump on and more

Matches_Malone reviewed Dark Nights: Metal #3 Oct 12, 2017

Like most "crisis" stories this series seems to be most interested in including and referencing as many characters as possible. If continuity is your favorite part of comic book narratives, there's quite a bit Metal can give you. But if you're just looking for a singular and focused story Metal is a book that continues to devolve into comic-booky nonsense.

Matches_Malone reviewed Batman Vol. 1 Deluxe Aug 30, 2017

A pretty underwhelming start to a series. The pace ranges from going in circles for several issues with no real development to an overly crammed final issue. The entire plot is pretty predictable with no big surprises and the new characters aren't particularly interesting. There's some promise with the writing though and the art is fine-good.

A fun, yet slightly convoluted story. Capullo's art is great, as usual.
