-TWICE THE BATMAN, TWICE THE FUN
I was skeptical about DC’s bi-weekly shipping for big titles. I was worried that quality would suffer, with a writer having twice as much to write. But saying Tom King has proven capable is a massive understatement. I was worried about delays, because no artist outside of a few of the great workhorses of the medium can handle two issues a month. But DC was smart, and has a rotating art team that I would assume has months in the can before the start of their arc hits the stands. So then I worried that the art quality couldn’t stay consistent. I am glad to say I don’t know what I’m talking about. I rarely recognize the artist on Batman by name, but they’re all doing impeccable work and there’s a similarity there that I barely even register the change from story to story.
I realized a few weeks ago that every Wednesday I’m either reviewing last week’s Batman or reading a new one. I can’t speak for any of the other biweekly titles, but Batman has been a true gift, and it’s been a constant both in presence and in quality.
