I really want to like this, I really do. In fact, I'm such a Kevin Smith fan that I think it may be the only reason I'm giving this a 3 star rating over a 2 or a 2.5.
In my review of Batman: Cacophony, I stated that I had high hopes for the sequel in which Kevin Smith promised a superior story. Already, my hopes were probably too high. I mean, I love the guy's work! Big fan of his movies and podcasts; I also really enjoyed his Daredevil and Spider-Man runs. So I knew that he probably just wrote a bad arc, it happens.
My main problem with this book is the ending. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the ending. As Kevin wrote in the afterword, there's no one that could have predicted that. My problem with the ending is that it makes the entire novel seem better than it deserves to be. It kind of made me forget about all the strangeness that led up to it.
In a word, Kevin's writing here is just weird. I mean, there's no other way to describe it. Granted, it's not all bad - he wrote a decent scene between Bats and Catwoman. However, it doesn't make up for all the strange "happy" Batman/Bruce Wayne stuff.
I feel like such a heel saying that about the book because I'm a massive fan of Walt's artwork. He's so good here and has steadily improved on what he brought to the table with Cacophony.
Supposedly, this is going to be a 3 part series so I'm hoping that he plans on finishing strong. With the way the ending went, there's no way we're not getting a (view spoiler)[crazy, violent and brutal (hide spoiler)] Batman.
I'm always going to have faith in Smith because he really is better than what most people give him credit for. I know he's capable of writing something excellent in the next collection - SO DON'T LET ME DOWN!
