COMIC REVIEW: FTN reviews Batman #31

Finally, it looks like Batman has a plan and a team to back him up!

Snyder continues to spin his intricate web in this story and it continues to boggle my mind. I love how he characterizes these people, and am really falling in love with his snarky Riddler. However, once again I found the flashbacks a little unnecessary, though interesting in how they tie in or parallel to the main action. I just find the story would probably be just as good without them.

This art team! I can’t take how much I love them. They give 110% every issue and it’s ridiculous. The colors pop so well, it almost makes me wish Zero Year Gotham was a real place.

Zero Year is coming to an end, and I bet Bruce still has a better trick up his sleeve, yet!

Self proclaimed as hilarious, Sarah is a strange mixture of weird human and sports fan. Hailing from Pittsburgh, PA (but currently studying photography in Ohio) she spends most of her time running into tables and tripping over herself while waiting for a TARDIS to show up in the courtyard. If not in a tree or receiving medical attention, she can be found on the tweeter-box (@alfredthebatcat) ranting about ice hockey, baseball or her undying love of Dick Grayson.
