Review: Batman #108

Batman #108

I’ve been a bit hard on DC‘s Batman since James Tynion IV took over writing duties. The first few arcs all felt like a setup for what’s to come. They were a level increasing to the boss battle. Recently, the series has felt like the main event. With Future State over, Batman has been building towards that future Gotham. It’s one of neon hiding the fascist leadership within. Batman #108 continues that march adding layers to the world and story so far.

Tynion has a focus and that’s the glimpse of a possible future Gotham. We know that a ban on masks is coming and that a tech-driven police force will crack down delivering a jackbooted peace. Tynion has been building towards that with a carefully assembled foundation involving a crooked CEO, Scarecrow, and a Mayor who seems to mean well. But, one of the more intriguing aspects to it all is the Unsanity Collective. It’s a group that are pushing the people of Gotham to get past their fear. Bruce/Batman has decided to infiltrate the group in a style that’s a blatantly crappy undercover cop. The results are intriguing.

In Batman #108, Tynion makes a hell of a case that the Unsanity Collective might actually have a point. We’re introduced to Miracle Molly, a tech-wiz you just know will play a bigger role in Batman’s future. Molly takes us on a tour of the group and its world laying out their philosophy. We also get a better idea as to who they fit into the greater narrative. Through it, undercover Batman clearly thinks through their point and what they’re trying to accomplish. You also get a sense he’s on the fence as to whether they’re truly a threat or if they can be allies in some way. It’s an interesting exploration of the radicalism they bring to the table.

The art by Jorge Jimenez is amazing. The first page alone cements the issue with a splash that you’ll linger on. Tomeu Morey continues to deliver the neon colors, building towards the style coming in a possible feature. Clayton Cowles‘ lettering packs a lot in without being overwhelming, delivering the right punch. There’s an impressive amount of style and details thrown into the issue with pages that beg you to explore. Each new character we’re introduced to tells us a story about them and the world layering on the details to soak in.

The issue also continues its story featuring Ghost-Maker. Tynion is joined by Ricardo Lopez Ortiz on art with Morey on color and Cowles lettering. The story feels familiar with a style similar to that of the classic Batman: The Animated Series episode that had villains all telling a story about their interaction with Batman. In this chapter, Kid Kawaii tells of her experience and interesting exploration of Ghost-Maker’s intelligence and preparedness. Through his enemy’s tales, we learn more about the character and what he brings to the table.

Batman #108 is a fantastic issue. It builds out the cast of Gotham with new characters and new aspects. It builds towards the city we saw in Future State. All of that is done with eye-popping art and in a way you come away with a different perspective on a possible enemy. This is the Batman I’ve been hoping for and excited to see where the series goes.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Heroes Reborn #1

Wednesdays (and now Tuesdays) are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this week.

Batman #108 (DC Comics) – Batman’s undercover to discover what’s up with the new group in town while things are in motion elsewhere bringing together the future Gotham we witnessed in Future State.

Batman/Fortnite: Zero Point #2 (DC Comics) – The first issue leaned more heavily to fans of Fortnite so we’re intrigued to see if the second issue is more friendly to people new to Fortnite.

Becstar #1 (Mad Cave Studios) – A star-hopping mercenary-gone-full time-gambler. Yeah, that kind of sounds awesome.

Broken Souls Ballad #1 (Scout Comics/Black Caravan) – Saint Abigail’s Institute creates monsters – and those monsters are teenagers! The teens discover they have abilities tied to their psychosomatic conditions.

ENIAC #3 (Bad Idea) – The two issues so far have been entertaining with a nice mix of alternate history and action. We’re hoping for more of the same in this tech-thriller.

Eve #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Eve wakes up to a world she wasn’t traiend to live in, a future dystopian America.

The Good Asian #1 (Image Comics) – Following Edison Hark-a haunted, self-loathing Chinese-American detective-on the trail of a killer in 1936 Chinatown. Yeah, we’re in.

Green Lantern #2 (DC Comics) – The first issue was a bit choppy but our new favorite Green Lantern Jo (from Far Sector) debuts in this issue and we’re excited!

Heroes Reborn #1 (Marvel) – It shares a name with that other event but isn’t related. A new world where the Avengers never happened and only Blade remembers… yeah, we want to check this out.

Marjorie Finnegan: Temporal Criminal #1 (AWA Studios) – Garth Ennis writing a new series. That alone has this comic on the list.

Nocterra #3 (Image Comics) – A world of darkness and an amazing new villain. Nocterra is so well thought out at so many details.

The Secret to Superhuman Strength (Mariner Books) – Alison Bechdel goes over her fascination with fitness crazes.

Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters Alpha #1 (Marvel) – It’s a major crossover event in the Star Wars universe as bounty hunters are all after the same bounty… Han Solo frozen in carbonite!

Suicide Squad #3 (DC Comics) – The first two issues have been full of action with some interesting personalities. Add in a body count that’s already high, and we can’t wait to see what’s next.

Whalesville x Rocks and Minerals (Bad Idea) – The comic sounds like it’s more geared towards all ages and with a new format for Bad Idea, we want to see what they have in store for fans.
