It’s short, but the story is decent. And John Romita Jr just keeps cementing himself as a favorite artist for me with everything he does. Frank Miller has a style all his own, and while I wouldn’t have thought to replace it with JRJR, it works.
The worst thing I can say about this book is that it’s probably unnecessary. Do we need a Dark Knight prequel? Do we need an anything prequel? Probably not.
But on the other hand, when we’re talking about comics we NEED, I think that’s a short list.
To put it all in Batman parlance, not the book we wanted, not the book we needed, but pretty aight. Does Batman say “aight”?
