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."
