Of all the titles in the New 52 DC Universe, the Bat universe books seem to be the ones that have been shaken up more than any other. With the latest issue of Detective Comics they are continuing that trend with a new creative team of Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato. This issue Batman finds himself knee-deep in a new mystery involving a deadly new narcotic that has hit the streets of Gotham City.

This issue kicks off the “Icarus” storyline that jumps reader’s right into the mix with a sort of new start for the Dark Knight as well as a new possible partnership. From the opening page of this issue it jumps right into the action with a classic feel to it taking Batman back to the streets making him feel more like the old school Caped Crusader as opposed to the larger than life hero that he has become. The story does a great jog betting things back to the basics without compromising what has come before it. Manapul’s art is more than just your average comic style, but instead continues to offer up something both simplistic and stylized and quite simply beautiful to look at.

This issue is still getting things started to this new direction but offers just enough intel to set the tone for an interesting direction. The promotions are that they are bringing the detective back to the Dark Knight so only time will tell if they succeed, but this issue is a good start to getting back to the basics so grab your copy of Detective Comics # 30 available now.
