Batman #01


W: Scott Snyder
A: Greg Capullo

Wow. What an awesome debut for the team of Snyder and Capullo. I had a feeling, like everyone else I’m sure, that this was going to be really good. And dammit was it ever! Capullo is so good for Batman. He should have left McFarlane years ago. He is an insanely talented artist and a perfect match for the dark and gritty atmosphere Scott Snyder creates here. There has been some concern around the internet that Capullo would be too “Spawn” for Batman; that the cape would be ridiculous. Well, I can safely say that he puts any doubt to rest. His pencils are so good that even though Jim Gordon looks like a beefed up Twitch, it doesn’t matter. His Batman is badass. The opening fight scene is done very well with the villains getting some nice looks during the action. I really like his Clayface and Killer Croc. Hopefully we get to see them star in some solo villain arcs down the road. As for Snyder, he knocks it out of the park. The pacing, dialogue, setting, and overall characterization are right where they should be. It feels as if this is Batman, not just some guy’s take on him. I am really looking forward to this book next month. The mystery is solid, the cliffhanger tremendous, and plot just damn good. Get this now!
