Review: Tales From the Dark Multiverse: Batman: Hush

Tales from the Dark Multiverse Batman Hush

I love “what if” type comics. They’re simple in concept as they take a minor detail about a comic character and spin a whole new story and world out of it. It takes the familiar and makes something new and different. DC ComicsTales from the Dark Multiverse is a new take on that concept. Each one-shot takes a major storyline and delivers a new twist on them from the perspective of the Dark Multiverse. We know it’ll be a twisted tale, not necessarily tragic, but definitely, not a story that’ll leave up uplifted by the end. Tales from the Dark Multiverse: Batman: Hush gives us a new spin on the modern “classic,” Batman: Hush.

In this twisted tale, after the murder of Bruce’s parents, he goes off to live with his best friend, Tommy Elliot’s family. There is no Alfred Pennyworth to raise him. Instead, Bruce deals with the trauma of the murder of his parents devolving into madness that has him winding up in Arkham Asylum.

What’s impressive about Tales from the Dark Multiverse: Batman: Hush is how much of a world is fleshed out. Writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson could easily have focused on a story of revenge. Instead, there’s so much more. Gotham is an independent city-state with its own leadership and different place in the world. This isn’t the Gotham we normally know, instead, it’s a micro-state which allows for greater political intrigue and machinations. Johnson gives us much more than Batman just delivering justice but instead a Shakespearean tale of power, betrayal, and backstabbing action. There’s a lot of thought put into the world here and it’s the amount of detail that makes it really stand out.

Dexter Soy and Sergio Davila provide the art for the issue giving us a not quite horror style. The world and city feels like a land in battle. But, there’s a being that looms over it all, stalking and terrorizing individuals. Matt Santorelli provides the ink, Ivan Plascencia the color, and Troy Peteri the lettering. The style and the look of the world has detail about it that matches Johnson’s story.

The design of characters, locations, and vehicles have a well thought out aspect about them as if there was actual discussion about how this world operates. The haves are clearly delineated from the have nots in style and that extends to the detail of their location. The vehicles and weapons all have a utility about them as if they have an actual use in this world and it’s not just to look cool. Helicopter like transportation shuffles the wealthy across the skyline above those they rule below as an example.

Tales from the Dark Multiverse: Batman: Hush is a story of detail. It absolutely could have used more pages for that. The history and training about this version of Batman is a little thin though his motivation is clear. It’s something I’d like to see more of. There’s a lot packed in here though as Tales from the Dark Multiverse: Batman: Hush is a one-shot comic you can just pick up and enjoy and ponder so much about this intriguing spin on a familiar world.

Review: Dark Nights: Death Metal Robin King #1

Dark Nights: Death Metal Robin King #1

Dark Nights: Death Metal Robin King #1 is the latest Dark Nights: Death Metal one-shot that’s better than the main story. Focusing on the hit Robin King character, we learn more about his history and his relationship with The Batman Who Laughs.

The issue is an interesting one. We dive further into this twisted version of Bruce Wayne and “Batman”. Bruce is the one who killed his parents. From there goes on a mission to take on the adult heroes and their rules. There’s a brilliance to it all and we get to see why the Robin King is so good at what he does. Like Batman, he plans, and plans a lot. But, that’s both good and bad.

Writer Peter J. Tomasi handles the main story and adds depth to the breakout character. We get a vision and a mission and it’s one that’s consistent. With distrust of adults and rules and wanting the children to rise up, Robin King has a distrust of everyone. That includes The Batman Who Laughs. With that small detail, Tomasi gives us someone who can rival that character and likely will be a thorn in his side down the road. He’s more than just another evil Batman now. The crumbs for what’s to come are sprinkled here. Like the other one-shots, Dark Nights: Death Metal Robin King #1 is going to be a vital chapter in Dark Nights: Death Metal.

What Tomasi also does is deliver a chaotic glee about everything. Robin King has a kid-like excitement about the carnage and destruction. The attitude and actions make sense and are fun in a weird way. We see heroes murdered and there’s a bit of humor about it. That’s partially due to Tomasi’s writing but also the art by Riley Rossmo.

Rossmo is joined by Ivan Plascencia on color and Rob Leigh on lettering. Rossmo’s distinctive style with Plascencia’s colors creates a chaotic symphony of destruction visually. There’s an almost Looney Tunes feel about it all as Robin King’s joy explodes off the page. Rossmo’s character style adds to that and what could easily be gore and horror comes off as over the top humor. The glee with which the art presents Robin King too is somewhat infectious. Mixed with his at times child-like innocence, there’s a combination of a comic that’s reminiscent of 90s Bisley Lobo, a celebration of over the top destruction.

The issue also features a second story, “The Quiet Ones.” Featuring Signal, it has him going up against a new evil Batman we haven’t seen before. It too feels like a key moment that’ll have an impact down the road as the character “rights” his power and gets focus. Written by Tony Patrick with art by Daniel Sampere, color by Adriano Lucas, and lettering from Andworld Design, it’s another story that probably should be in the main comic but is relegated to this one-shot.

Dark Nights: Death Metal Robin King #1 is an odd comic like many of the one-shots. It’s likely an important part of the story filling in key moments not in the main comic. There’s clearly things here that’ll have an impact down the road and play in to what’s to come. But, at the same time, I’m not sure how you would add any of this to the main series. Even adding an issue, it’s too much of a side quest focus to keep the flow of that going. It’s also far more entertaining than what we’ve seen there. It’s focus on a few characters allows them to have depth delivering a comic that feels like it’s more about the character than the gimmick. That’s something that has plagued Dark Nights: Death Metal as a whole.

Dark Nights: Death Metal Robin King #1, like the other one-shots, stands out. If you want to learn more about Robin King, it’s out there but there’s just enough having to do with the main event, it also doesn’t stand on its own. Still, it’s an entertaining read that’s beyond insane and fun.
