Batman Eternal #23 Review

Body: 

What's new, pussy cat? Woah, woah, wh--oh, you're dead.

 

Selina's feeling shitty, failed to save a kitty, born to rule the city, and things aren't looking pretty, all in this twenty second entry in DC's weekly Bat-epic, which sees The Architect's inadvertent (?) victory, Jason Bard making his next move, and Selina crawling through a quarter mile of poo-smelling foulness I can't even imagine. (Maybe I just don't want to.) Nguyen is full-on Nguyen with his uniquely stylized art and it's almost like I'm reading Heart of Hush again. Well, actually I have been rereading that recently, coincidentally.

 

Batman Eternal #20 Review

Body: 

Welcome to the jungle, we'll have... ehhh, one pretty good scene.

 

The mystic crap feels tired, Falsario's retired, a Lion is required, and Stephanie's inspired in this twentieth issue of DC's weekly Batman yarn, pack full of terrible art and story padding, but with at least a couple of really choice scenes that spare this thing from the trash heap. Frankly, though, I'm looking forward to some of these storylines consolidating, because most of them aren't that interesting on their own. It's starting to look like a weekly Bat book was a mistake because they're simply not holding my attention very well. Why do you think every review comes a week late?
