After reading the one shot DC Universe Rebirth I had a decision to make. I had to decide which book I would jump into immediately right after that. I went back and forth for a bit but settled on Batman: Rebirth #1 as my next adventure into Rebirth. This comic is written by Scott Snyder & Tom King with art by Mikel Janin and was released on June 1st, 2016. Let’s get started.
So I was still in bliss after just finishing DC Universe Rebirth and wanted to take a few before I started Batman: Rebirth #1 but I just couldn’t help myself. Vanessa was painting and Zack was playing Minecraft so I just ran and took a quick break and headed straight back and started in on the comic.
Only a few pages in we see Bruce hanging by one hand, many stories up, in 137 degree temps in Gotham while talking to Lucius. That’s what I call dedication to training right there. The art is doing a very nice job of keeping me captivated and the writing is very nicely done as well. I got about halfway into the issue when a big reveal was made, Batman is ‘trying something new’ when it comes to a sidekick type situation. He then revealed what seemed to be a new Batman suit. Are we going to have two Batmen? Before I knew it I had reached the end of the issue. We got to see the aforementioned suit in a action just a bit and got a clever line by Batman before the issue ended. I was very impressed by the Winter pages art, very nicely done.
Overall I think this was a very interesting issue! Make sure to pick it up with the link below for only $2.99 and read it instantly on Amazon/Comixology!
