A Cody-Kenobi Review: BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT #0

For my second review this week, I chose Batman: The Dark Knight #0 to review. I'll come right on out and say it, it was so bland. More bland than the chicken I had last night for supper, and trust me that was BLAND! There really wasn't anything new in this issue in my opinion. He is obsessed with finding his parents killer, and he does. Finds Joe Chill, and doesn't do anything then tries to get answers and leaves. That's it, that's the whole comic. Nothings really added to it, unless you really want to see Bruce's watch taken from him. That's all I really have to say about the story, though, the art work is very well done. Mico Suayan and Juan Jose Ryp really do bring a life like edge to this book. The significance of the pearls is strong also, and its repeated in a couple different frames. But other than that, I think it could have been more exciting.

My Rating: 1.7 outa' 5

Till Next Week, This Is Cody-Kenobi--patrolling the streets of Gotham.

I agree this was the weakest of the Batman related #0's. Batman (Bruce's early crime fighting), Detective (Bruce's training), and Batman and Robin (Damian's training) were all much stronger IMO.

Any thoughts on those other #0's?

The only other #0 I read was Incorporated. I thought that one was really good, because I didn't know the back story on Inc. at all. It was really great to see how everything came together. I wasn't able to read the other you have mentioned above, but it seems like I should!

Those comics finally broke my comic reading back. After 30+ years of reading comics, I am done with the DCU. I've finally become what I never thought I would: the guy at the convention that says he "doesn't read current comics". I'll focus on Silver Age books to fill in my run from here out. With the New 52 and now these new "origin" stories DC has given the finger to all their old fans, expecting them to still buy the comics despite them being horrible. Well no more.
