Interesting, but not quite "there."

Sometimes with Batman, I wonder why more people don't know he's Bruce Wayne (sorry to spoil it for you). Reading this, it is unlikely many wouldn't know who he is. How convenient that Batman shows up in England at the same time as Wayne. The book has a secret society in it which is fun but for 48 pages, it took me forever to read.

Recommends it for: Die hard batman fans, not the average comic reader.

It was pretty neat having it take place in another country, but the story telling was sub par. The artwork was unique but seemed very rough and unpolished. This may be percieved as a good thing or a bad thing, for me it is neither. The Order of beasts are an interesting foe that made for wuite a peculiar story.

Pretty lame, especially for how cool it could have been. A still training Batman discovers a secret society while solving a series of murders in London. A lot better could have been done with the premise.

Batman goes to 1930's London, where a secret society is being killed off to a nursary rhyme. A good little adventure and the artwork is pretty.
