If you’ve ever tried to visualize what it’s like to be Batman, go no further than your local comic shop. Pick up Batman Annual #4 from DC Comics.

It’s Tom King at the keyboard, with artists Jorge Fornes and Mike Norton on, uh, markers and styluses? And Dave Stewart on colours.

Day by day, night by night, Batman keeps busy. Busting baddies, tripping up thieves, battling behemoths. You get the picture. Day after day, case after case. Page after page. But stick with it, the going is entertaining, the nights all blur together into a battish stream of battles of the unconscious. Blink and you miss a day in this calendar of clever disguises, witty dialogue, artful dodging.

DC Comics, Batman Annual #4, $4.99 for 39 pages of content. Rated 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!!
