‘Batman #101’ (review)

Written by James Tynion IV
Art by Guillem March
Published by DC Comics

 

After the boring 100th issue, we are left with this issue.

Honestly, it feels like this comic is about to get much worse in short order. As a writer, James Tynion IV never seemed to develop a decent take on Batman as a character.

It is becoming more and more apparent with each issue that he is never going to either.

This issue starts off with Batman and Robin swinging through Gotham City!

They look like the Chuck Dixon/Graham Nolan Era of this character. We see them on a case.

That is when we head over to the present day. The Dynamic Duo have to go up against Grifter!

That’s right. It is starting to look like the Wildstorm Universe is integrating into the DC line of books even more now. And why not?

I just wish it was interesting and well handled. It really isn’t. Batman and Robin fight Cole Cash and it is all rather unspectacular.

We do learn that Cole Cash (Grifter) is working for Lucius Fox?

Why is he?

Why should we care? I know that I personally didn’t care all that much. In fact, the stakes in this book have never felt lower. I felt like if I missed reading this that I really wouldn’t miss anything.

The script by Tynion is boring and has no inspiration. I don’t care about anything or really anyone in the book. The artwork by Guillem March isn’t that bad but doesn’t do much to boost the excitement.

Overall, this is a dull story in a book who’s quality is rapidly declining.

RATING: C
