The Batman Who Laughs #1 Review
You had to know the Batman Who Laughs was getting his own book. The wildly popular villain from the very successful Dark Nights: Metal was bound to be seen again. Comic book publishers sure as hell aren’t letting a cash cow fade off into oblivion.
So with that here we are, the bat that’s everything Batman is without any of the restraint. The Batman Who Laughs doesn’t laugh but instead inflicts Punisher like judgement. Now he’s loose in Gotham and his killing spree is only warming up. Naturally the only person who can stop him is Batman, except in doing so Bruce must play a suicidal game of chicken. Maintain his sanity and risk losing everything or lose everything to save it all.
The Batman Who Laughs #1 is skillfully composed of Scott Snyder with interior art from Jock. There’s few teams that get much better than these two heavyweights, especially when it comes to Batman. A brutal team for a brutal book
I followed Dark Nights: Metal from a distance, picking up the story in bits and pieces here and there. There’s been a lot ramping up to this book and it’s easy to get lost in this massive story. Here’s the Dark Nights: Metal wikipedia page to catch you up to speed because The Batman Who Laughs #1 is aggressively fast paced. Because of this I don’t want you to be discouraged from reading it.
Hit up those shelves and find the sexy The Batman Who Laughs #1 Greg Capullo cover and get to reading. This is gonna be one helluva ride.
