Recommends it for: Anyone wishing for a different Batman, but not too different.
Recommended to Leonardo by: Cecilia
A remarkable retelling of the Batman mythos. Set in an expressionist version of Metropolis, the Batman characters are set and transformed into characters in a graphic novel that draws heavily (but not mindlessly) on Murnau's "Cabinet of Doctor Caligari". The spiritual descent of Bruss Wayne-Son and his transformation into Nosferatu is impressive, particulary in his struggle with the city's other champion, Super-Man. Visually, Batman: Nosferatu is a delight for those whose tastes rotate to the tw...more

Not at all what I was expecting, in a great way. A radical revamp (hardy har) of the Batman character and of the entire DC universe as well (for example, Metropolis, with its double entedre, and not Gotham, is the setting) done up in eerie, German Expressionist-inspired artwork. Another gem in the DC Elseworlds series.
Sequel to a previous Elseworlds story 'Superman: Metropolis'. The art style is the same, and I personally seriously don't like it. The story was even less interesting, so I can't really recommend this to anyone.

There's a third book in this series called 'Wonder Woman: The Blue Amazon'.
The artwork is beautiful and unusual. The story of the Gothic Dr Markham and the laughing man intriguing. The writing, however, is awful and it takes a lot of concentration to work out what is going on. An OK read for the artwork alone.

Sebagai pecinta aliran naturalisme, nangis darah deh melihat gambar2 di buku ini... T.T

Jadi sulit menikmati jalan ceritanya kalau sulit menikmati gambarnya.

Forgive my limited art-sense.
