Review: Detective Comics #847

It’s one of the best comics I’ve read this year.

Writer Paul Dini has this amazing talent for moving things forward in exciting new directions while simultaneously expanding on everything that came before.

Cases in point: the conversation between Selina Kyle and Zatanna about their feelings for Bruce Wayne, and the flashbacks to Tommy Elliot’s childhood that feature Omen-level examples of evil, evil, evil.

You can check out the review at the link above, and be sure to buy a copy at your local comic shop.

(And thanks again to BOF’s editor, creator, maintainer, and the hardest working Batman fan on the planet, Bill “Jett” Ramey, for the opportunity.)

True Story: While Detective Comics is now a 100% Batman book, that wasn’t always the case. Batman, then called “The Bat-Man,” had his very first appearance in the pages of its 27th issue … in 1939.


  1. Totally agree with you: this comic absolutely rocked socks. It helps that I’m such a sucker for Hush—but this comic is nothing short of brilliant regardless. Sooooo good! And it makes up for all this “Batman RIP” crap. :)

    I could give a flying F about RIP. But this storyline rules. Dini is awesome and Hush is awesome.
