Boston Brand is back and jumps right into the deep end, an attack on Commissioner Gordon.

One of Boston’s biggest enemies is after Gordon at a Nuclear plant in Japan but Boston isn’t the only hero on hand to stop him, he’s going to have to work alongside Batman to get to the bottom of this one.

I love how both Deadman and Batman instantly know when the other is there even if they are in disguise (OK Boston doesn’t really disguise himself as such but still counts) and each is surprised the other knows. Poor Commissioner Gordon doesn’t know what the hells going on though.

Batman is able to provide the next lead for Boston but it looks like his mission is far from over, and with the help of a little flashback we can see why he is after hook so determinedly. Bostons frustrations are expertly captured in the artwork which is also spot on at letting the reader know where Boston is without being too obvious.

A 34 year old manchild from Scotland, bravely fighting the on going war between a love of comics and space to keep them. Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue. A healthy mix of the seven dwarves of geekdom all wrapped up in one kilted bundle of amusement
