Batman : The Chalice
By Chuck Dixon, John Van Fleet (Illustrator)
Another day, another Batman book.
I am no idea where this went wrong.
The art style at times was stunning! I would happily have a few panels printed and put up on my wall but for the majority of the time, it was sloppy. It did not compliment what was happening and do not get me started on the ‘facial expressions’. It was the speech bubbles that conveyed the meaning behind the words, not the face.
I am still confused about the story line. Unlike Indiana Jones, Batman does not suit a religious setting. With him facing the villains that he does an socialise with the likes of Superman, it just does not fit.
If you give this a miss then you won’t regret it.
