gr2blackout's Batman: The Dark Knight #2 - A Rush of Blood review

Good in a weird way

Before I start, I have to admit I haven't read that much Batman recently. So, in this issue, I'm kind of confused with some of the stuff.

The Cover

To be honest, I didn't really get this issue because of the cover. Usually I sort of judge a book by the cover, but this time I didn't really like the cover. When I want to buy a Batman comic, I usually dont get one with a muscular Two-Face beating the crap out of Batman. I have to say, though, the art and details were good on this cover. Recently, comic book covers haven't been that good. This cover was, well, meh. But it looked like a story I would not like to read.

The Story

The issue was pretty interesting. The cover didn't exactly give me the right idea of what to think about the issue. But I have to say I quite enjoyed this issue. One of the reasons I got it was to catch up on Batman, and I ended up enjoying it. I was either getting this or an issue of Flash, and I have to say my main choice was Flash, but I figured I've read too much Flash as it is. I have to say that now I'm happy I went with this. I didn't enjoy EVERY part of the issue, but as I said before, it was okay.


This issue kind of confused me in some points, but I understood most of it. The basic story, at least. I usually wont even bother to check out issues that have a muscular, almost grotesque, Two-Face on them. Actually, this is like the only comic to have a muscular Two-Face on the cover, but you get the point. If this review was just on the cover, I wouldn't have much to say.

    Why Couldn't Streets of Gotham Have Been Relaunched? 0

    The Good: Finch's artwork is still pretty awesome.  Ok, admittedly it does fix up my complaint about Two-Face from the last issue. I LOVED the scene where we see crime fighters from around Gotham dealing with this same mess. Overall, aside from Batman, the characters are all quite well written. Maybe Jenkins would be better suited to writing a Streets of Gotham or Gotham Central style book. Though its his characterization of Alfred that shone the brightest. The Bad: The cover starts out pretty '...

    Batman's dark/supernatural book starts down the rabbit hole 0

    As the crowded list of characters on this issue's wiki page suggests, The Dark Knight #2 has its share of cameos. The New 52 initiative was supposed to draw in new readers, but they will miss a lot here. For instance, they'll miss the significance of the (usually nervous) Ventriloquist hurling Robin and Nightwing through a store window, even if it is explained in some expository dialogue towards the end.New readers won't be completely lost, though. After being introduced to Batman's relationship...
