The war of Jokes and Riddles part 4.
The Joker and the Riddler both want the same thing, to kill the Batman, unfortunately they also both want to be the one to do it and will kill each other first to make sure they are the one that gets the pleasure and ultimate satisfaction of killing Batman.
With the war between two of Batman’s most deadly foes in full swing and Batman failing to stop it its up to Bruce Wayne to try and have a civilised dinner with the pair and decide once and for all who Batman should side with to save Gotham.
Since rebirth I’ve not been reading many Batman titles but once I saw this storyline I had to give it a go. This take takes place years back when Batman was still new to the cowl. It’s a story he is telling Selina so she can truly know what Bruce and Batman have done and will do to protect Gotham.
The pacing varies from issue to issue with last issue being a full on no holds barred fight between Deathstroke and Deadshot. This issue is slower but so well written that the lack of action isn’t noticed. The art is perfectly matched with the tone of the book, dark and more realistic.
Although this is not a jumping on point for readers I would have to recommend that you pick up the three previous issues or wait for the trade, whichever you choose this is a must read Batman story.
