He Taught Batman to Hunt… Now, Batman’s His Prey!!! It’s Detective #996, from DC!

Batman, in the Arkham Asylum. Now, in Paris, France. (why do we need to hear that Paris is in France, you ask?) You see, he hunting a fellow named Ducard. A fellow who is hard to find.

“See Paris And Die” is written by Peter J. Tomasi, penciled by Doug Mahnke, inked by Jaime Mendoza and Mark Irwin. Colourist is David Baron.
It’s Batman, seeing the sites, looking under rocks and fighting the fights. Righting wrongs. Changing time zones. There are a few surprises along the way, and I have the feeling that we are being led along to the upcoming BIG issue, Detective 1000.

Steady on, reader.

DC, Detective Comics #996, $3.99 for 21 pages of intercontinental content. Teen

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!!
