Woah, now that was a head-fuck and a half wasn’t it? This issue really messed with not only Batman’s head, but the reader’s. We’re trapped in the maze just as much as Batman is, and the way Snyder and Capullo rotated the layout of the book to landscape, and then totally upside-down really worked well in adding to the disorientation and confusion that Batman was feeling throughout the issue. I’ve seen more than one person saying that this was the best Batman issue ever or words similar to that, and while I don’t think this is that good, it’s still a fantastic issue that had a totally unique atmosphere. It’s rare to see Batman so up against the wall, so not in control and it’s exciting. I’m sure that the ending was just a hallucination from the freaky water, but even then I’m not sure, and that’s great, too many Batman stories are totally predictable and by-the-numbers. This is not and it’s brilliant.
