A weekly book can be pretty tough. We’ve seen DC try it twice in the past with some mixed results. However, one month into BATMAN ETERNAL, this book feels like it has a good direction and is way more than just another Batman book. If anything, this book should be called “Gotham Eternal” because it covers so much more than what Batman is up to.
The main focus of this story is Barbara dealing with her father’s incarceration after the events of issue #1. The opening courtroom scene is a hard one to read for any James Gordon fan as there seems to be no justice for the character because there’s no real proof that the train crash wasn’t his fault.
Barbara does what any person would do when someone you love and care about is falsely accused of something, beats the heck out of some low level thugs. Well, maybe only vigilantes do that. The reader can easily become empathetic with the character through her struggles here. It’s a very satisfying opening to the book. With that being said I would rate this issue a 8/10 that’s all for this issue.
