Description

The artwork by Bernie Wrightson also makes Gotham feel like an unforgiving hell-hole that is constantly edging closer towards destruction. His mission is to purge humanity of those he deems undesirable — and in his warped mind, that's just about everyone. Where Batman: Prey and Batman: Ego both had a strong, thematic commentary on Batman himself, this book creates a commentary on society. Josh: Matina mentioned Robin earlier, so I want to make sure we give him the credit he’s due, especially since this is Jason Todd.

The thermoplastic complies with the requirements of Regulation (EU) 2019/904 of the European Parliament and of the Council on reducing the impact of certain plastic products on the environment. Blackfire captures The Dark Knight and by using a method of brainwashing, convinces The Caped Crusader that he is truly Gotham’s savoir.

Nick: I also want to take this moment to point out that we’ve seen Batman’s parents die in all three book club stories so far, and I’m starting to get lost in the déjà vu.

Once we move into public assassination attempts and outright anarchy, any sense of sympathy toward the homeless evaporates and they quickly become a horde of bloodthirsty zombies that rip apart anyone who crosses them. He doesn't have any superpowers besides the seemingly long life he's lived and that is contributed to - believe it or not - bathing in human blood. But other than that its still a solid read and makes for an interesting Batman story of him dealig with mysticism and mad men who break him and take over the city which requires him to save Gotham.Michael : Blackfire recruiting an army of downtrodden and homeless and turning them against the criminals that plague their lives is a great angle that I wish the story focused on more.

As this happens, the Cult effectively takes over the city, causing the rest of the country to quarantine Gotham.

And if we’re being honest, when we look at what separates all of the Robins from one another, for Jason, it kind of is his drive. Regarding the citizens, I want to take a moment to shout out “Roving Reporter Ted Rogers,” who is the MVP of this story by constantly reporting Blackfire’s revolt from the front lines, even when they cut off Gotham from the rest of the world.

I don’t know, I understand that this was a product of its time, and that public opinion and the disenfranchised can be manipulated; but seeing it happen, especially to the most vulnerable of the city, and using it as a justification for them becoming ravenous beasts, doesn’t entirely sit well with me. Lock-and-Load Montage: A terrific page of close-ups as Batman and Robin don their uniforms with Robin asking "we ready to boogie? He mows people down with a machine gun in one instance, and acts like a coward in many other instances.

More than anything this is an ensemble story about Deacon Blackfire recruiting and gaslighting the homeless community to carry out his deeds. Y parte del programa era cerrar con alguna recomendación de lectura y yo no quería caer en algo obvio. Also, upon seeing a woman that was running to him for help get ripped apart by a wild mob, he sits in the Batmobile/monster truck and listens to her die (he says something about it seeming to take a million years) rather than help her. That said, this was all deliberate, and executed quite well—which is why I agree that turning the story into a bombastic battle, instead of diving into Blackfire’s manipulations and the truth behind them, felt like a weak way to conclude the story.
