Batman: Face The Face
By James Robinson
What would happen if Batman, Robin and Nightwing left Gotham for a year?
Batman: Face The Face follows a time in Gotham when Batman and Robin have just returned from an extended leave of absence. Surprisingly, crime has been decreasing in the year that the masked duo were away, with a mysterious masked bandit taking up the mantle as protector of Gotham.
I found the story easy to follow with enough plot twists that it did not become predictable. There was an interlude almost of another characters perspective, which added some much needed background to this storyline.
The art style is like nothing i have ever seen before. Not that that means much considering how little comic books and graphic novels I have read. It suits how i picture the style of Batman to be as well as drawing your attention to exactly where it is needed to be.
A very well done Batman and Robin story that most people will enjoy.
