(Belated) Comic Review: Batman #39-#40

Writer: Scott Snyder; Penciller: Greg Capullo; Inker: Danny Miki; Colorist: Fco Plascencia


Talk about an all-star team-up. The Bat Family joining sides with the villains of Gotham to take down the Joker. Such a menace craves the attention of all those it will take to bring him to justice. Or to just take some fluid from his spine. But what is the ace up his sleeve. He has to have one, right? Of course he does.

I don’t want to put too many details in this review because you should read the ‘Endgame’ arc for yourself and experience the brilliance of Scott Snyder and the masterful art of Greg Capullo. 

The inevitable showdown between Joker and Batman is setup by some brilliant theatrics. Their final fight is ruthless, bloody, personal, and long overdue. Go try and find these issues. It will probably be hard so a trade may be in order.

Until next time…
