About this deal

Even when he does a jump to save himself from a dangerous situation, he does it in his own style, due his acrobacy background, which is different of how Bruce would do it. But meanwhile, many have hailed Black Mirror as a high note for the original series to end on, in which Dick Grayson, having taken on the cape and cowl from his boss, works with Commissioner Gordon on a particularly grisly (of course) and personal (natch) set of cases that (indubitably) all turn out to be the same case, formed by a criminal mastermind from their shared past.

The actual story here is that Dick Grayson, now Batman, has uncovered a terrifying and strange case when he discovers that a nightmarish auction is being held where the criminals of Gotham City’s possessions are all being sold to the rich citizens of Gotham City. For Batman that's never a good thing, especially if you’re Dick Grayson, the original Robin, now stepping into the shoes of your mentor. His poetic prose when describing Gotham City as a living character and not just a setting piece in his stories is something we can now read and appreciate in his The Court of Owls storyline. Now I don't know if this was ever done before, but in Black Mirror Jim Gordon JR is a serial killer and a creepy bastard at that. Dick manages to track down the Joker in the South Bowery Tunnels, but Joker tells him that he wasn't the one who mutilated Joker's ex-wife but James Gordon Junior.The event begins a strange and deadly mystery that will bring Batman face-to-face with the new, terrifying faces of organized crime in Gotham. Instead, he has (no idea when) adopted Dick Grayson and is currently building a franchise (take a moment to appreciate that joke) while Dick has stopped being Robin and became Batman instead. Alfred Pennyworth arrives to debrief on Dick on Commissioner Jim Gordon wanting to meet him, where Gordon tells Dick how a 12-year-old boy who was bullied was transformed into a monster similar to Killer Croc and ate a kid's arm due to him ingesting a potion. I have been reading Scott Snyder books one after the other, and so far, I have not been disappointed. It's one of the most exciting and well written stories I've read staring our favorite hero, the Batman!

And Francavilla does as good a job at evoking feelings of foreboding and tension as Jock - Where Jock uses crazy expressive linework and splatter, Francavilla uses great colours and composition to draw you into the scene.I really love that, in efforts to truly differentiate his Batman from Bruce's, Dick flies over the city on ziplines similar to a trapeze artist. This collection explores how Grayson, who has his own personal issues, finds his own niche in the Batman family dynamic as the new Caped Crusader. The depth of each story, the personal level, as well as the mysteries are very intelligently written and there is a perfect balance with action sequences and the usual technology Batman is famous for.

He is applying for a job at Leslie Thompkins' clinic to help other psychopaths and asks his father to put in a good word for him. When he turns back, he’s shocked that Dick is still there instead of disappearing in the middle of the conversation like Bruce does. Overall, “Batman: The Black Mirror” is easily one of the best current “Batman” stories around and anyone who is a huge fan of Dick Grayson will definitely love this comic! Though it's not Wayne underneath the cowl, Dick as Batman is definitely a daring and compelling one. edit: Ví comentarios sobre que este batman no esta a la altura, en la propia historia se hace mension del tema, y es parte del todo, que el protagonista trata de compensar y se mete de llenó en el papel,sabe que no es tan bueno ni tan inteligente (pero a estas alturas ¿quien puede competir con bruce?Once again involving some of the wider Bat family, this time it's Grayson's Batman and the Gordons who have to face the ultimate depravity of a human gone wrong in the pervasive darkness and corruption of Gotham. It's one of the best Batman books out there and is destined to become a classic - what're you waiting for? This was definitely one wallop of a story that would be hard to review because of so much going on in one graphic novel, but I will definitely do my best to express my intense love for this comic book! James Gordon Junior hangs up the phone to kill Barbara Gordon, but Dick saves her in the nick of time due to him putting a sub-dermal tracer on James Gordon Junior. His normality is what's so disarming, and the artwork by Francesco Francavilla who draws/paints this storyline adds to the creepiness.

Another family relationship that gets explored is the one between Jim Gordon and his psychopathic son, James. My friend Hulk-boy wants me to read this so that I will quit giving my boyfriend Batman 2 and 3 stars.In short, on a subconscious level, they are disenfranchising a group of individuals for their reading choices.
