My favourite thing about this take on Batman is how Snyder is developing Gotham City and giving it history and depth and making it come alive as a real place. It’s like what James Robinson did with Opal City in Starman, and hopefully Snyder will be as successful at building a city as Robinson was. I also like how Batman is really updating his technology, last month we had the contact-lens computer, this time it’s a holographic morgue so he can examine corpses without having to break into the police station, it’s a really cool idea, and it means Batman is no longer a static character, which he was for most of the 90s and 2000s. I’m glad the mystery about whether Dick Grayson was the killer was dealt with quickly, as I felt that was kind of a cheap cliffhanger. The stuff with the Council Of Owls is intriguing, and should hopefully form a part of Snyder’s Gotham history-building. I still don’t trust Lincoln March though, he has the whiff of Tommy Elliott. Oh, and the action scene when Batman and his bike took on a helicopter was awesome. Greg Capullo’s art was great again, I love the design of the Owl-Assassin.
