Jorge Jimenez’s artistic prowess shines in this Batman installment, elevating the visual experience. The lackluster Gotham War concludes, making way for Chip Zdarsky’s skillful storytelling. The Joker’s resurgence adds complexity, pushing Batman to confront Zur’s formidable rage in a gritty, visceral narrative. The familiar Batman versus Joker theme gains freshness with Zur’s inclusion. The compelling conclusion leaves readers eager for more, signaling a revitalized series under a new narrative trajectory. Cheers to sustained momentum in upcoming installments.
Approaching the “Gotham War” series with some reservations due to a deep affinity for Batman, I engaged with it but found it somewhat underwhelming. The introduction of Vandall Savage led to a conventional hero-unite-against-threat storyline. The potential consequences of Batman’s toxin in Jason didn’t materialize as expected, and the event fell short of expectations. While it may not be as disappointing as the Ms. Marvel Spiderman event, it leaves much to be desired. I wouldn’t recommend acquiring the trade edition of this event and suggest looking forward to the forthcoming storyline in Batman #139 instead.
