Gotham s founding fathers Can Batman Red "Robin Robin And Black Bat Stop The "Robin and Black Bat stop the of the ArchitectAfter the awesomeness of The Black Mirror this was a little bit of a letdown but still pretty good Dick continues to adjust to his role as Batman as he pieces together the identity of the Architect with the help of his partnersHush and the Penguin play important roles but Gotham City itself is almost a character While I didn t think the art was that great Scott Snyder s writing was superb He really makes me believe Gotham is a real place The interplay between Damian and the other team members was probably my favorite part of the book Man that Damian is an arrogant little shit Then if your dad was BatmanThree stars It s good but not in the same league as The Black Mirror This book delves into the history of Gotham and the four families An interesting one to read around the time that the TV series Gotham just finished an arc involving one of the historical Gotham family s feud with the Waynes In this story it s not so much a feud with Wayne but a historical Gotham vendetta that puts modern Gotham and its inhabitants in jeopardy I think the artwork was very well done and it delves into Steampunk territory with some of the design I would have liked it better if the layout was better arranged It was a big confusing reading the panels and the story jumps forward and backward in time I liked that all of Batman s team is working together to save Gotham I sueed when I saw that Black Bat aka Cassandra Cain is actually in this book It was good but not greatOverall rating 35500 stars Someone in Gotham is blowing up the bridges of the city and enacting some strange vengeance against the descendants of the families who built Gotham the Elliotts the Kanes the Cobblepots and the Waynes But who and whyThe adventure collects the three Robins Dick Grayson as Batman Tim Drake as Red Robin and Damian Wayne as Robin along with the Cassandra Cain the Batgirl currently stationed by Bruce Wayne in Hong Kong to stop this terrorist before of Gotham s historic buildings are destroyedThe story jumps from the 19th century when Gotham was being built to the present day to explain the actions and it was great to see a young Gotham and see how the city came into its gothic look The new villain in this book the Architect has a steampunk look something a lot of comics are doing these days and looks very cool I m enjoying these stories of the young "heroes of Gotham and and think that Bruce Wayne can safely retire " of Gotham and and think that Bruce Wayne can safely retire these guys taking care of things That said the book shows the difference between Wayne s Batman and Grayson s in the lack of nowledge Grayson currently has about the city he s supposed to be protecting Its touches like that that makes for a engrossing readAlso included is a story about the Night Runner of Paris and how he comes across Bruce WayneBatman and is recruited into Batman Inc to become the Batman of Paris The story contained political elements that I thought DC could ve avoided as they showed a contemporary France with its racial and cultural issues in full view but they included it and I thought that was a very ballsy move The Batman of Paris is very cool too and Batman Inc is shaping up to be a tremendous conceptOne side note though the book lists Scott Snyder and Kyle Higgins under story and Higgins under dialogue so I don t now whether Higgins wrote the script and Snyder wrote the outline with Higgins but it seems like an odd distinction Anyway Snyder is uickly becoming one of the best Batman writers working today and for anyone who hasn t read The Black Mirror I highly recommend itThe Gates of Gotham is a fine Batman story with plenty of action and mystery as well as continuing to build the new Batman world strongly subtly and in new inventive ways It s basically the story of past and present Robins working together to solve the mystery of Steampnk DudeGotham s old sins have once again risen from the grave to haunt itcrickets chirpingI m not sure what to even say about this one "I didn t hate it but it didn t make much of a lasting impression eitherIt was a good solid story "didn t hate it but it didn t make much of a lasting impression eitherIt was a good solid story art and a decent conclusion Ta daThere s was a bonus issue at the end about a Muslim Batman in ParisI thought it was gimmicky cheesy and irritatingThe end.

keel reading to look forward to the resolution and pay off of the mystery surrounding the villainnown as the Architect Once again Snyder together with co writer Kyle Higgins employed Gotham city not just as a setting piece but as a participatory character itself This was established through the flashback seuences concerning the city during its humble beginnings that also tied back to the villain s own arc and whatever motivated his nefarious actions in the present The transition between past and present was seamless and suspenseful and I could definitely see readers waiting in anticipation back then when Gates of Gotham was only released as a monthly issue during its run Gates of Gotham was reminiscent of the tonality and approach of his Owls saga in New 52 particularly the concept of secrets from the past and the historical style of storytelling Unlike Owls however this was a brief exploration about one madman s uest to avenge a perceived wrongdoing which actually helped it because it wasn t unnecessarily drawn out The confrontation between Batman and the Architect was an impressive display of how perception especially a narrow minded and hateful one can destroy oneself and his connections with the present which was what the Architect wholly represents Gotham doesn t change you She just reveals things whether you like them or not And today she showed me that I can be Batman Dick GraysonOn the other side of the coin Dick Grayson also gets some insight concerning his role as the new Batman and why he has than lived up to the code of the Dark Knight while also not losing himself in the process While The Black Mirror story arc has already tackled the tricky disadvantage of becoming the mask you wear Gates of Gotham reveals what lurks under that mask and why we can only wear it for so long until it rots away our real face and erases who we areScott Snyder and Kyle Higgins Gates of Gotham may only be less than 200 pages but it s a purchase you will never forget I can easily see a well adapted animation film for it There are great action and narrative panels within its pages that are just begging to be realized on screen The collection also has a bonus story about Bat Inc s Muslim operative the Nightrunner as written by Kyle Higgins Other supplements include the variant covers by Dustin Nguyen which werr as awesome

history of Gotham with architecture whodunnit revenge and a faint Court of Owls vibe "Fantastic artwork gives a purposeful nod to Batman The Animated Series You can find "artwork that a purposeful nod to Batman The Animated Series You can find review on my blog by clicking hereMany are uick to judge Gotham as one of the worst places to live in with the omnipresent criminal activity that pollutes its alleys and sewers They aren t wrong With it being the ideal dark underbelly for your most evil ambitions you could imagine that it would be easy to blend with the rest of the criminals and not stick out as a sore thumb in a city like Metropolis for example It s its vile and dangerous atmosphere that ultimately leads the city to need heroes who act outside the law in order to purge it of its criminality but Gotham So this was a half and half type of story The story is basically someone blowing shit up We don t Broad And Alien Is The World
know who or why until later but the mission is to cause havoc Dick as Batman decides to go investigate with his team of Damien Tim and my favorite Bat family member Cassandra On their investigation they work on discovering who is behind these terrible things while we get the backstory of the villain here and why he s trying to destroy the city after being betrayed Good The art is pretty solid throughout though it does dip at times I also thought the interactions between the heroes is great Damien with his uick wit and assholish comments make it a ton of fun Watching the Bat family work together was also a blast The ending was satisfying and all in all anything to do with the Bat family worked Bad The other side of this is a past of a villain and how he was wronged which isn t new but this is also really boring as well While the story is by two writers the dialog is written by Kyle Higgins but it doesn t really captivate you It s weird since I m loving his power rangers Overall this was a okayish Batman story As much as I love Dick as Batman this one wasn t all that memorable Still okay to check out it s not bad but I read better A 25 out of 5 B 78% Good Notes It s Gotham s origin story as a city built from oligarchy and ambition forever run ruined and rescued by its families How can you hope to deal with Gotham s future when younow so little about its past Current Batman series writer Scott Snyder used to write for Detective Comics back when Dick Grayson took the mantle of Bruce Wayne as Batman Final Crisis complications and whatnot demanded such a change in heroes much like for today s post Convergence event whete Bruce Wayne is once a goner You just have to be there to understand In any case this is the second major story arc collected in as a graphic novel that I ve read from Snyder s Detective Comics run with Grayson as the Dark Knight The first one is The Black Mirror which you better believe is worth the trouble I cannot stress how much I recommend the bejesus out of itIn contrast Gates of Gotham is a thinner compilation with a story that ran only for five issues The two stories are fundamentally different but just as enjoyable for the same reason which would be Synder s uncanny skill to weave together compelling murder mysteriesconspiracy tales After all this story does come straight out of the Detective Comics line so that s something that should be a given While The Black Mirror is of a psychological thriller Gates of Gotham is an action suspense pseudo steampunk narrative concerning a forgotten pillar of Gotham and his deranged journey to destroy the city or at least that s what he fancies himself to be a revolutionist who felt deprived and abused by Gotham particularly by its eliteAnd by its elite I mean the Kanes Cobblepots Elliots and the Waynes These are the four founding families who have respective skeletons in their closets and demons to contend with Grayson is Batman now while Bruce is busy with this global vigilante organization Batman Incorporated so he had to do this alone but not without the support and assistance of Tim Drake Red Robin Hong Kong operative Black Bat and the arrogant Damian Wayne who is still a prickly and insecure pre teen who is always disagreeable just for the sake of it I say this with all the love and affection I have for his Peter J Tomasi counterpart in the recent comics Like it or not Gotham has royalty and they stretch back to the origins.
