4.0 out of 5 stars Bat vs Pyg July 22, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The start of another Batman title. A new recruit comes to the Gotham police force while Batman and Commissioner Gordon fights Professor Pyg. A terrible tragedy happens and Commissioner Gordon caused it.

I got out of collecting and reading comics after having collected for years. Now, years later, I'm slowly getting back into reading the odd title here and there. At times, it is confusing because while I know a lot about certain characters, there is also so much that has changed. For example, I had no clue who Professor Pyg was. So I was a little lost here. Also since we are talking about a comic book, it is just a small piece of the story.

The artwork is very detailed and quite nice. Reading it on the kindle can be challenging though. Even with the ability to expand panels, it is still fairly small and I am sure I missed some details.

Overall, I would say this is off to a promising start. I am sure that I will be up to speed on the story after a few issues.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great start May 14, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Batman Eternal #1 kicks off this new weekly series with a bang or rather two. The first is a flash forward to a Gotham in flames and what follows will lead us in 52 issues to that scene. Who is behind Gotham in flames? And who knows who Batman really is? What follows is a great study in duality (an important theme in Batman); new recruit to GCPD (and making his new 52 debut quite unheralded) is a young cop from Detroit named Jason Bard. In pre new 52 continuity Bard was a one time love interest of Barbara Gordon, an associate of Dinah Lance and her family, a former GCPD cop and a PI who assisted Batman once in awhile. Never a major player, he is getting great treatment here as we follow his arrival in Gotham and meets the major players in the GCPD (Maggie Sawyer, Harvey Bullock, Jim Gordon, and Forbes-who you know right away isn't any good at all). This is fouled with Batman and Gordon rescuing a group of kids from Professor Pyg and his dollotrons. These two stories come together at the end and show us why Scott Synder is the best Batman writer working today. There is a stand out scene where Bard and Gordon come face to face and there are some great striking similarities, as if Jim Gordon is looking into a mirror of his you herself, which makes me wonder if they aren't foreshadowing a re visitation of the Bard/Barbara romance. More than any other panel, that one stood out to me. Great start to what promises to be an exciting 52 weeks of reads.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting July 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Well, this is a first for me. Well, since I'll be looking at a comic, I'll try to avoid spoilers. So with that said, this is an interesting beginning. Since this is the first issue of this series, it does it's best to set the pieces for later, and it creates enough mysteries that make you want to keep reading. Like for example, at the end of this comic, Commissioner Gordon does something that not only leaves him and the readers baffled, but also leads to many lives being lost. I don't wanna say what it is, but it is shocking. Honestly, I wish I could go into further details, but even what I just said is more than I'd like to say, so I'll leave it there.

The artwork for this story is well-done, and detailed. The use of colors is nice, and the arrangement of the panels is done rather well. And the dialogue? It's good. It's flowing, natural, smart, and fits all the characters nicely. I would like to go into more details about this comic, but, I don't know what else to say about the beginning of a story, and this is the first review I've typed on my iPod. So all I can say for now? I think I'd wait for the Graphic Novel before making a full opinion, but otherwise? Not a bad beginning.

It's an intro, not a story. Guess it is meant as a hook, but it leaves a lot to be desired.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gotham Eternal July 29, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first issue of the new weekly Batman series that is supposedly going to focus more on the supporting members of the Bat-family. This issue kicks off what appears to be a grand who done it. There is some promise to this Idea, but I have the unfortunate feeling that this will be wrapped up within a few issues without any permanent repercussions. Hopefully that won't be the case. I am really interested by the flashcard though, as a totally beaten Bruce looks interesting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eternal Excitement! August 21, 2014
By K.A.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The New 52. There are more and more titles coming out of it and DC seems to be hitting their stride. There are multiple Batman titles and it is nice to see more than a couple that are very well done. Capullo and Snyder are my top team so far and I love what they are doing - story wise. The art and story compliment each other very nicely and this is the case with most of the other Batman books. I was a little apprehensive about another book being released but after reading it, I found that I had no need to worry at all. This is yet another example of DC teaming up an artist and a writer that compliment each other's style very well. This is not limited to just the Batman books either, look at some of the other books and they are doing it with many of them. My hardcover library is swelling with "New 52" titles and after reading Batman Eternal, it will have a new title joining the ranks. This is written by Scott Snyder and the artist is Jay Fabok. Snyder just seems to know how to write Batman stories that grab the reader and keep our excitement levels up. He gives us a Batman that is not only a man of action but also a man who has delegated his (not insubstantial) resources very well. The Detective that crackles with kinetic energy. This story did what many other Snyder Batman stories do, it grabbed me and held me, riveted to the pages, turning them at a fairly rapid clip until I got to the last page and once again found myself wanting more. I find it very hard to wait for the next installments of Snyder's stories and when I do get them, I once again move through it in one sitting, be it one issue or a hardcover with six issues. Batman Eternal is fast paced, smart, filled with action, and I think it will be here for as long as Snyder wishes it to be. I will be reading every page with great enthusiasm!
