All-New Batman: The Brave & The Bold #11
DC Comics (November, 2011)WRITER: Sholly Fisch ARTIST: Darid Brizuela COLORIST: Guy Major LETTERER: Dezi Sienty ASSISTANT EDITOR: Chynna Clugston Flores EDITOR: Jim Chadwick COVER ART: Rick Burchett, Dan Davis, & Gabe Eltaeb
Cave Carson and Geoforce help Batman find the cause of earthquakes in Gotham. The solution is for Batman to go back through time (with the help of Professor Nichols) and team with Jonah Hex against Ra’s Al Ghul’s younger (relatively speaking) self.
What they got right: They worked a lot of cameos in seamlessly. It’s also nice to see Batman ask for help for a change. One of my problems with this series isn’t that Batman is featured but that he’s the greatest crimefighter ever and he’s the first person anyone calls when there is trouble. Now for once it’s BATMAN that needs the help. The art is also in keeping with the cartoon, my demand for any toon spin-off comic.
What they got wrong: Is this how Ra’s knows who Batman is? What happens to the timeline and space/time? I would rather have seen Batman return to the epicenter and THEN be told that it wasn’t as bad as first thought.
Recommendation: Fisch is writing great Batman stories in the show’s style. If you like the show, you should totally be getting the comic now.
