Was this issue inspired by The Incredibles? Thomas Wayne Jnr spent the entire issue monologuing, and it heavily involved an aeroplane propellor. I’m guessing it wasn’t intentional, but it did remind me of the Pixar classic. This was a strong issue, even if I did find Thomas’ speechifying a little tiresome. I really like how Snyder has kept the shocking revelation of #10 ambiguous, we still don’t really know whether or not ‘Thomas’ is who he says he is, or just part of a more elaborate plot to fuck with Batman. I’m personally leaning towards it being true, that he is Bruce’s brother, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it was revealed to be a lie. I just don’t know, and that’s a good thing. I really liked the scene at the end with Bruce and Dick chatting, and how everything tied back in to Gotham City, and nobody, not even Batman or the Owls, can claim ownership of the city. Greg Capullo out-did himself with the maze page at the end there, a really cool idea. This whole story is a maze. The back-up was once again interesting, with more hints about ‘Thomas’, but still… will we ever know for sure? I’m interested in seeing what’s next for this book, we’ve had 11 issues of one story, hopefully Snyder can maintain the momentum, it certainly looks like he’ll be able to with a certain Clown Prince of Crime getting involved.
