I was so upset when the NEW 52 decided to renumber everything... including ACTION COMICS and DETECTIVE COMICS. These books are comic book history and as a young kid always counted down to those books hitting issue #1,000.
Well, DC came to their senses or listened to countless episodes of SECRET IDENTITY where I begged for this very thing to happen. And now... here we are.
So in the 'new' world of Batman, he doesn't seem to be a tormented jerk... he seems driven. In the pages of DETECTIVE COMICS #934, Batman joins Batgirl as they look to recruit and train members of the Bat family like Red Robin, Spoiler, Orphan (the former Batgirl) and Clayface. Yes... I said Clayface. Someone is out to get the 'team' and it's up to the senior Bats to help the younger ones.
This is a 'Bat Family' book that reminded me of the classic team up book; fun and exciting, brought to you by writer James Tynion IV, penciler Eddy Barrows and inker Eber Ferreira. The book is a great read, full of fun that makes me happy to be a Bat Fan!
