Herein lies the problem with Batman:Eternal #15: Batwing, Jim Corrigan, Red Robin, Harper Row, Batgirl, Batwoman, Red Hood. Am I missing someone?


For example, here’s what the issue opens up with:

The issue focuses way too much on “updating” the other story lines, that we get one page of The Dark Knight… and it’s the opposite of last week’s issue.

A handshake the Batman wouldn’t give a week ago. Hmm…

Anyway, here’s a few things to look for:

  • Arkham Asylum
  • Uninvited guest
  • Creepy basement
  • Crane the blood puppet
  • The confusing handshake
  • Oh yeah, South America
  • Bygones be Bygones

I’m not going to waste anymore time. This issue stinks. I love the art, I’ve always been a fan of Dustin Nguyen. The writing isn’t bad either, it’s just a Batman series without Batman, which is kind of the main reason we buy the issue.

The most exciting page of the issue? A preview for Batman Day!
