So much fun. While I do get that this is definitely not for everyone (I, for one, do not really enjoy reading about Batman fighting the Batman Who Laughs for the 18th time this year, but I'm respecting everyone's opinion). This was a nice throwback to the episodic Batman stories from Golden/Silver age, with Alfred delivering the narrative. The artwork really suited this story as well.

Batman Annual #4 is a collection of short stories - told by Alfred - that perfectly captures the everyday life of Batman. There is no dialogue between characters, only Alfred explaining what we see on paper. And what we see on paper is beautiful art by Jorge Fornes and Mike Norton that makes this issue even better.

What a wonderful amuse-bouche!

The art is spectacular! The story might have some hiccups, with horses on rooftops and Gotham missile defense systems. But I appreciate the writers whimsy and playfulness with the material and Fornes just takes the script and runs with it. Each page is a masterpiece!

Nothing half baked here! Seeing lots of reviews giving very low ratings. I tho more
