Hey look, it's another Batman: The Dark Knight #1 issue! At the rate DC is going with this series, we'll get a storyline of about 6 issues, and then it'll be time for another Batman: The Dark Knight #1! Huzzah!!!
Batman: The Dark Knight #1:
What Happened: The GCPD's Internal Affairs division wants to talk to Bruce Wayne about his funding of Batman Inc, since Batman is hated in this series... I guess? A good-looking woman manages to get the cop to leave, and Bruce flirts it up with her. Bruce ends up hearing about a breakout at Arkham Asylum and dons the Bat-costume to deal with it. Upon arriving he discovers a really pumped up looking Two-Face, who tells Bats to call him One-Face from now on... Why not simply call him Harvey if that's the case?
The Good: You can't really go wrong starting this series off with Batman vs Two-Face. The story kept my attention. The art was solid. Female Jason wasn't in this issue!!
The Bad: The Bruce Wayne scenes were rather boring. I don't like the changes done to Two-Face at all. I don't get why the villains at Arkham were wearing their costumes IN the Asylum...
The Verdict: This comic was the very definition of a forgettable comic. Here's what I mean by that... I actually read this issue last night before going to sleep. Upon sitting down to do this review today, I couldn't remember what happened in this issue for the life of me! Seriously, until I turned to the last page and saw mega-sized Two-Face, I couldn't recall a thing about this issue. It's gonna be fun next month when the second issue arrives and I'm like, “Batman: Dark Knight?! Is this the comic with Joker or is this the one with evil Dick Grayson in it?!?”
Score: 6 1/2 out of 10.What, Bane wasn't available for this storyline or something?
