Horror comics now tend to all have something in common...they lack horror.They are cynical...or more concerned about socially commenting on whatever outrage of the minute strikes them.But lets be clear...they don't horrify.They also don't have tension.They also don't have atmosphere.
All things that a great horror book must have.These are difficult objectives to hit in a comic,but its what cr more

I really dug the beginning of Spencer's first (sort of) big Spidey event. I find the premise to be quite a cool idea that could lead to some great character moments for both Peter and Kraven. Ramos is, as always, a great choice for ASM. Looking forward to the rest of the story.

Legendary artist Kelley Jones makes his triumphant return to the Dark Knight in this explosive miniseries written by former BATMAN editor Scott Peterson! Batman's been overseeing Gotham City for years now and isn't sure how much of a difference he's making. Doubt, fear and insecurity are starting to take over. And as all of those negative feelings ...

There's nothing to fear but fear itself-unless, of course, the Scarecrow is trying to scare all of Gotham City to death with his fear gas! Dr. Jonathan Crane has undergone an intense therapy session in order to "cure" Batman of his various psychoses. That involves Batman and Scarecrow battling through the streets of Gotham City, with the Caped Crus...

Scarecrow's psych evaluation of Batman takes its darkest turn yet, as it completely dismantles the Dark Knight and keeps him from Gotham City! And a threat of immense magnitude will ravish the city unless Batman snaps out of Scarecrow's control.

Scarecrow's endgame is in sight! He has created a world without Batman for the Caped Crusader to be tortured by. It's a world controlled by crime, where fear always wins!

This wasn't as good as the previous issues and I think that's because the main attraction of this entire series was the art. I really want to buy the trade of this and put it on my shelf just to look at... And probably not read. The writing is fine, and some moments in this are really good, particularly the part with Alfred. But after such a fun string of quick issues filled with crazy art, slowin more

out of all of the stories written for Kelley Jones to illustrate, i've enjoyed 'Batman Red Rain' (and the Vampire Trilogy) the most. 'Gotham After Midnight' is probably a close 2nd, and 'Batman Kings of Fear' follows somewhere behind that one.

the series was thankfully short. it probably could have been even shorter?

this issue was ok. but the never ending moments of catharsi more

Sorry but this put every Batman story, most DC stories and all Marvel stories to shame for at least the last three or four years.

Simply the best miniseries of the past year.Finally a real Batman story and one thats an instant classic.The art and story meshed so well it restores your faith that comics can be made with wonder and amazement as chief ingredients, not cop out stunts and mediocre one size fits all art.
Batman at his most awesome, and the single finest Scarecrow appearance ever.EVER!

Here we are - #1000. Batman just turned 80 years old. So many artists - writers and illustrators, so many distinct comic eras, so many different styles... It's good time to be a comic fan, and be able to see these historic events with our own eyes. First Supes, now Bats - that being said, however, I can't say I enjoyed this celebratory mega issue nearly as much as Action Comics #1000 - the reason more

The Johns ending was perfect, because it had sentiment,NOT sentimentality.It was my favorite story though.And that Joker shot?Best image of him in years.

@Khamul Maybe I should reread that story, because I didn’t really get the point, only that there was a son of Joker again.

It's hard to review compilation issues like this but I was definitely overall pleased and didn't mind spending $13CAD on it. I knew nothing groundbreaking was going to happen but there were some great short stories that displayed why Batman has lasted for 80 years. My favorites were Kevin Smith, Geoff Johns and Paul Dini with least favorite being Dennis O'Neil, with the rest falling somewhere in b more

Wow....Kelley Jones was spectacular in this, and his 'Kings of Fear' miniseries was the best Batman art released last year, and the mini was a classic.

Really outstanding collection. Rarely do these kind of books live up to expectations, but this really does.
No spoilers here's that's part of the charm to see what each creator or creative team delivers, but I will say this though,the Geoff Johns and Kelley Jones entry really was touching, and Jones is just wonderful as always.
Get this book and enjoy what comics are about, joy and wonde more
