The Brightest Bat-Flame In The DCU
We are 13 issues into the Batman Weekly event, Batman Eternal, and it hasn't disappointed.
This is easily the most underrated Bat title, if not the most underrated DC title. The writing crew, overseen by Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV, has taken advantage of the weekly schedule and delivered a Bat Tale that is flying at a break neck pace.
With new blood causing trouble at the GCPD, Commissioner Gordon under arrest, the return of a gang boss starting an underworld war, strange events at Arkham... Batman just cannot keep up with it all. He has no choice but to call for help; even though he is loath to do it.
The pace allows the reader to check in with Bruce's supporting cast, and its the best its been in years. If you have been wary of the book, give it a try; I am confident that you won't be disappointed.
