I don’t like writing negative comic book reviews, because it means I didn’t get my money’s worth for whatever it was that I bought and didn’t like.
That’s why I wish every review could be as positive as the two newest ones I’ve done as part of my ongoing gig for Bill “Jett” Ramey and Batman on Film.
Detective marks the outstandingly strong debut of new writer/artist team Scott Snyder and Jock, while Batwoman mesmerizes from beginning to end as Bruce Wayne tries to figure out if Kate Kane and Batwoman are one and the same.
(Also out this week was Batman and Robin #17, which I’ll review for you right here in just four words — Batman and Robin Confidential. Yeah. It’s that bad. But in all fairness, writer Paul Cornell and artist Scott McDaniel had to write and draw it on the fly as a last minute fill-in when the new creative team of writer Peter Tomasi and artist Patrick Gleason couldn’t keep up.)
