Batman: The Dark Knight Annual #1 [2013]


BATMAN: THE DARK KNIGHT ANNUAL #1
Writer Gregg Hurwitz creates a wonderful story which has three Batman villains unite to confront the Dark Knight. The Scarecrow, Mad Hatter, and the Penguin arrive at the Arkham Detention Facility for Youth thinking each was brought there by the other. They all believe they have been played however they all stumble on top of one another to get out. They are knocked out by their own devices and wake up in the morning. It is revealed Bruce Wayne was behind it all to keep them occupied for one night so he could get some rest. There is enough Batman books out there so it was nice to finally see the villains in the spotlight for once.

RECOMMENDED – 4 OUT OF 5
