Batman Eternal #1


Batman Eternal is the newest Batman comic. It's said to have a story so huge it has to come out weekly. Batman Eternal is written by Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, Ray Fawkes, Kyle Higgins, and Tim Seeley. It comes after Batman #28 and starts off the James Gordon being on the wrong side of the law.

We see in the opening of the comic that Batman is bloody and tied to the Bat-signal watching Gotham burn. The dark and gritty art work by Jason Fabok hooks us in with it's dark Gotham beauty. We are told that this scene is the end, being the end of the story. So we are left wondering as we turn the page, how did Batman get here and what happened to Gotham?

We come to the present and meet a new face to Gotham, Jason Bard. He meets Major Forbes and they have a conversation that kinda drags on, but we soon get to the action. Jason Bard seems a little innocent for GCPD. His innocents really shows when he has to arrest Commissioner Gordon. Yes, we were told this comic opened up with James Gordon being on the wrong side of the law and now we know why. After a battle against Pyg he starts seeing things that aren't there.

And that's where this issue leaves us, hook and wanting more. And more we will get because it is said that this series will last all year giving it about 60 issues.

What is your opinion on Batman Eternal? Will you be reading it weekly?
