Review

The first six issues of this mini-series have been intense and thrilling; The Batman Who Laughs #7 is no different. Bruce Wayne, half-embracing the evil that’s pumping through his veins, faces off against the Batman Who Laughs in an epic conclusive battle.

Throughout this short run, writer Scott Snyder has done an excellent job in not only building momentum, but also in creating and maintaining dramatic tension. This writing, has made the series, The Batman Who Laughs #7 especially, thrilling. And, despite leaving me wanting more of the Batman Who Laughs–more Batman vs Batman face-offs–this final chapter provides an ending that is both fitting and satisfying.

Throughout this mini-series, Jock’s artwork has been phenomenal, perhaps even peaking here in this final chapter, as his ‘nightmare-vision’ panels are especially twisted.

Without giving too much away, this issue’s ending makes it clear that the reverberations of the impact made by the Batman Who Laughs will continue to be felt in Gotham City for a long time.

Bottom Line

The Batman Who Laughs #7 provides a fitting conclusion to what has been one of the most intense Batman stories ever told.

The Worst Dudes #1 Review

The Worst Dude is funny, irreverent, and profane as well as delightfully packed with swashbuckling adventure. Definitely worth a look.

Jupiter’s Legacy Is Not Watchmen and That’s Okay: Netflix Original Series Review

Jupiter’s Legacy hits incredibly hard while offering viewers a well-crafted blend of caped-crusading-escapism and social commentary; this combination makes for a grounded viewing experience that’s as exciting as it is though-provoking. Jupiter’s Legacy is a must-watch series.

Eve #1 Review

Eve is more than just a typical “save the planet” story. It is more about a little girl’s courage and a love that endures even in simulation. Armed with the fake bear and a dinghy, her adventure starts.
