funrush's Batman #2 - Trust Fall review

Batman #2 escapes the Court of Owls death sentence

Batman #2. With all that the first one did, this has a lot to live up to, doesn't it?

Story/Art

We get a lot of things happening in the story this time around. On the first page we have a nice little history lesson, and we get a nicely illustrated action scene right on the next page. Although I'm not the biggest fan of Greg Capullo's art, he does a good job here. Fco has some beautiful coloring around here too. Next we see a continued autopsy of the man who died in the last issue. Batman has a discussion with Gordon over the autopsy. I have to say that the way the holograph was done was good. We also have Nightwing come in and reveal how the DNA of John Doe got on his arm. Next, we have some really nice backstory on Lincoln March. The way the character was developed was good. +1 to Scott Snyder. We then have a new villain appear, who seems to be really powerful. Bruce has a difficult time trying to defeat him. He falls out of a window in defeat, but manages to survive by landing on a gargoyle.

Good

  • Great Art
  • Great Story
  • Good Character development on Lincoln

Bad

  • Nothing!

Verdict

Get it. A great second issue that I highly recommend.

    As usual, I'm going to tell the truth, and as usual, the fanboys are all going to mark this review 'unhelpful' without reading it, just because I dare not to give it 5 stars, and not because my points have no validity; but I can't help but state my feelings about this issue. I love Batman, always have, this is not some passing fad for me like it is for half the world right now.The fact is, this version of Batman isn't really that great - it lacks grittiness, relies entirely too much on gadgetry,...
