Don't miss this epic Batman mystery from Scott Snyder, creator of AMERICAN VAMPIRE, originally published in DETECTIVE COMICS #871-881!

First, in "The Black Mirror," a series of brutal murders pushes Batman's detective skills to the limit and forces him to confront one of Gotham City's oldest evils. Helpless and trapped in the deadly Mirror House, Batman must fight for his life against one of Gotham City's oldest and most powerful evils!

Then, in a second story called "Hungry City," the corpse of a killer whale shows up on the floor of one of Gotham City's foremost banks. The event begins a strange and deadly mystery that will bring Batman face-to-face with the new, terrifying faces of organized crime in Gotham.

I'd definitely give this 4.5 stars like under the older system, if I could - I'm not quite at the point of rounding it up to 5, though. This is a pretty impressive story, don't get me wrong. Snyder did a fine job crafting this dark and intimidating story. His fine attention to detail was quite impressive, especially in an age of somewhat less-than-impressive comic writing (perhaps more in that other company), such as the black pins on the Graysons' map and the black pin-like pupils of James,...
