DC’s Batman: Creature of the Night issue 2 is a must-buy!

This issue, again solidly written by Kurt Busiek, with art by John Paul Leon, is an amazingly tightly constructed tale. It looks at the life of Bruce Wainwright, a wealthy young man who has found that he can channel into Batman’s mind. Wainwright’s life seems to parallel that of the ‘comic book hero, Batman’, with “Elseworlds/imaginary story” versions of Alfred and other Batman comic characters.

The current issue continues the look into Bruce’s life and introduces a Robin character. As Bruce’s life progresses, he gains wisdom in how to put his money and skills to use in fighting crime and improving life for the underprivileged.

The art and story weave seamlessly together, and the coloring is a strong addition to the visuals.

Be sure to pick up this issue, I strongly recommend it. And don’t be thrown off by the $5.99 price tag; you really get your money’s worth in this title!

DC Comics Batman, Creature of the Night #2 $5.99 for 49 pages of content

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
