Batman Inc. #1 (DC)

So much blood!!

The issue gets going from a couple of pages in with a whole bunch of action and blood and beating-the-living-hell out of a bunch of guys in weird masks. Yes, weirder than Batman’s. They look like goat heads. Goat heads trump bat ears in weirdness. This issue also marks the introduction of Bat-Cow, and Damian stating he is now vegetarian.

Damian has a price on his head. Apparently set by his mom to get Batman’s attention. At the same time a bunch of villains known as Leviathan are taking over the Gotham underworld. Meanwhile we see various Bat based superheroes (part of Batman Inc.) who are hiding out in Batcave West. And you wonder ‘What in god’s name is going on?!’ I’m not going further for fear of spoilers.

Ok so the story is interesting. Gripping and full of action, violence and blood.

Burnham’s art leaves me wanting. I feel like there is something missing that I can’t quite put my finger on.

SCORE : 7.5 / 10

    THE GOOD: I really like the art. Chris Burnham is an amazing artist and he adds a lot to the backgrounds and the panels always are fun to look at. I really like some of the different looking panels he did in this issue, like the one with the map showing where they are. The story is my absolute favorite part of this issue. We get to see Batman and Robin fighting a group of people with animal faces. It sounds a little weird but it is executed perfectly. I really like seeing Leviathan working a bit...
