BATMAN: LEGENDS OF THE DARK KNIGHT #157 REVIEWED

Writer: Dwayne McDuffie

Penciller: Val Semeiks

Inker: Dan Green

DC Comics, 36 color pages, $2.25

“Part two of this three-part story materially advances the plot while continuing to build suspense, as we learn the motive behind the serial killings. You can start reading with this issue, if you wish — you’ll learn everything you need to know. All you’ll miss out on from the previous issue is more dynamite writing and art from a great creative team.

In this story, Batman’s brilliant, daring, insightful, and creative. He even makes a funny. This story recaptures why the character’s a hero and provides the truest portrayal I’ve read in a long while. This story is just darned good superheroics with clever plot twists. If you’ve become jaded with the DCU, see if this helps remind you why you liked it in the first place.”

BATMAN: LEGENDS OF THE DARK KNIGHT #157

It came out last week! Go get one!

Written by Dwayne McDuffie; art by Val Semeiks and Dan Green; cover by Brian Stelfreeze

“Blink,” Part 2 of 3. The road to oblivion narrows even further for Blink, the blind man who can “see” through the eyes of those he touches. As Blink makes contact with Batman and uses his “eyes” to discover Batman's deepest secrets, he is unaware that the “lone serial killer” he'd helped capture was in fact part of a conspiracy a conspiracy that will stop at nothing to see Blink dead.

AQUAMAN?

Okay, it’s true. I *am* working on an Aquaman episode of JUSTICE LEAGUE. But for once, ’twasn’t I who spilled the beans, it was JUSTICE LEAGUE producer Bruce Timm.
