Commissioner Gordon's ex-wife Barbara Eileen is attacked in her hotel room by Joker Venom, and placed into critical care. The Black Mirror" is a Batman story arc written by Scott Snyder, and illustrated by Jock and Francesco Francavilla. He is also the author of the short story collection, Voodoo Heart, published by the Dial Press in 2006.

Of course, anyone who's anyone knows that the real shebang played out (and is still playing out) in the pages of the newest comic on the Batman block (and the last holdover from the pre-reboot era), Grant Morrison's Batman Incorporated, in which Bruce Wayne's war on crime goes global. It's one of the most exciting and well written stories I've read staring our favorite hero, the Batman!Dark but sharp, as full of details as the story itself and I liked the colours used (not too dark, with brighter panels in between). As said best that Metropolis is a city populated by Gods, but in Gotham it was just a man under the cape. This is a complicated rating for me because I will rate something lower if I feel like the main character wasn't characterized well or there wasn't any character development. but this time the answers require a deeper dig due to the extreme emotions involved, particularly for Jim Gordon. There is a particular crowd of readers who would no doubt look at a graphic novel like this and instantly dismiss it out of hand.

In short, on a subconscious level, they are disenfranchising a group of individuals for their reading choices. Harvey Bullock alerts Commissioner Gordon that his son has come back when they suspect him of freeing every bird in the city's Aviary. In addition to that, Snyder also works in nice references to past Batman stories like The Killing Joke, Year One, and A Death in the Family while still making this feel like a whole new era. Can two of Gotham’s proudest protectors bring justice to this malevolent threat in Commissioner Gordon’s most personal battle to date? It is the literary merit of reflection upon the world in a format that appeals to those readers by providing them the ideas of other greats through a different mode.Snyder and the artists do a good job of setting a subtly sinister and shadowed tone in this book, starting out with a sense of dread that seeps into the corners of the pages but does not confront us under direct gaze.

His moody art, mostly red and black, does a phenomenal job setting the mood and making everything feel unearthly. Meanwhile, Commissioner Jim Gordon’s past catches up to him when his psychotic son, James Gordon Jr. Because he has no powers, because he won't kill, and because he exists in a fabricated universe that requires timelessness to insure its commercial survival, Batman lives in a perpetual state of almost-but-not-quite falling apart. Batman (Dick Grayson) and Red Robin (Tim Drake) go fight crime with Batman still feeling the toxin effects.Dang, I do like The Joker as one of the villains of Batman, I think that that’s possible to make an epic Batman’s story without the need of having the Clown Prince of Crime around. I liked Bucky much more in the role of Cap than Steve Rogers, and I liked Dick Grayson in the role of Bats much more than Bruce Wayne.

Redford had Mad Hatter's technology tattooed on her neck which caused her to be brainwashed and kill the butler. 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.There is a brief appearance of The Joker, and while it was good the dialogue of him with Dick Grayson (as Batman), where The Joker knew he wasn’t THE Batman and even that he was a Robin. In these issues, we see Gordon stumble upon an enigma he could never seem to get a hold of in solving, one whose dark nature perplex and wound him most: his own son James Jr.
