In the wake of the phenomena that is Detective Comics #1000 we had a series of great stories but only one had a major reveal that will send shockwaves throughout the rest of the comic run. Enter the Arkham Knight! A villain some may be familiar with via the 2015 smash hit video game. We surely are in for a treat with MEDIEVAL!
This dark and mysterious issue was a steady flow of buildup and terror while continuing the trend of a great detective story. In what feels like one of the ten plagues of Egypt that is hitting Gotham city, darkness and disease blankets Gotham in biblical proportions really setting the tone for the threats to come. Batman will need to pull back curtains and shed light to this nightmare.
One thing I really enjoyed about this issue is that it gives you just enough to build the story but keeps the wheels spinning of the guessing machine. You have to solve the mystery along with Bruce – hopefully this trend keeps up. We also see an almost forgotten “Bat” character that I think fans will truly enjoy.
