Batman: Last Knight on Earth - Book 1

Batman: Last Knight on Earth is from the iconic Batman creative team of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo and is their last Batman story they are going to tell.

This review will have spoilers so for those of you who want a general overview of what the story is, here you go; Gotham and the entire world are gone and Batman and the Joker's talking head (yes, his head) take on the dangers on the new post-apocalyptic world.

Spoilers from here on.

The story begins with Batman working a case when he is suddenly shot and presumably killed by a younger, zombie-like version of his childhood self. Bruce wakes up in Arkham as a younger man with the doctors trying to convince him that he has been in Arkham for years and the Batman has simply been an alternate world he created.

Batman soon realizes that Lafred has created this alternate world in an attempt to give Bruce the life he never had. Bruce leaves Arkham, and after finding the Joker's head in a jar hanging hanging from a street lamp (seriously, that's what happens) he embarks on a journey to bring the people responsible to justice.

This is only the first issue and after I was done reading I was really bummed that I have to wait 2 months for the next comic. I have yet to read a comic by Snyder that I didn't enjoy the story and when it's paired with Capullo's art, it's an instant classic.

Batman Last Knight on Earth #1 is getting an A+.

Guys thanks always for reading. but until next time, Signal Out!
