Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason have the thankless job of producing the best Batman stories of our generation that go almost completely unrecognized. In the wake of DC's ill conceived and poorly implemented "New 52" Batman and Robin is one of the very few series to make meaningful changes to continuity while still telling incredible stories. Batman and Robin volume 5: The Big Burn would have been billed as an event in a more popular series because that is exactly what it is. Peter Tomasi delivers his take on Harvey Dent and it is magnificent.

No one is ever entirely comfortable with change in continuity and the fact that this arc is a slow burn doesn't help matters. Just know that this iteration of Two Face is faithful to the spirit of the character while successfully putting a new spin on it. Fire brand and Mob boss, Erin McKillen, the woman responsible for the worst day in Harvey Dent's life, is back in town and is the spark that threatens to burn Gotham to the ground. What follows is a violent, emotional, gorgeously drawn, neck breaking paced tear of an arc that delivers a deeply satisfying conclusion and elevates Two Face to the level the character has always deserved but so few writers are able to reach. Batman and Robin is one of the best series DC is currently writing and Vol 5 is no exception. An absolute buy.
