3.0 to 3.5 stars. One of my favorite Batman "series within a series" featuring great work by Jim Starlin and Jim Aparo and a superb new villain, the KGBeast.
Ce que je n'aime pas des vieilles BD ce sont les dessins, les couleurs et les histoires trop simplistes. Ici, ces trois points sont tous réunis. Malgré sa simplicité, l'histoire n'est pas mauvaise mais elle est quand même trop semblable au millier de films d'actions des années 1980. Batman doit se battre contre les ennemis de la droite. Un des méchants est un communiste et l'autre un méchant Iranien. Ça fait très cliché.

Pour ce qui est du côté artistique. Les dessins ne sont pas si mal mais les...more
I picked this up because I was interested in reading some Batman stories with Jason Todd as Robin. Luckily the book was good because it had very little Jason. The story deals with Batman going up against a Russian assassin. It was interesting to see how irrelevant Robin was during this time. He was present throughout, but didn't really do anything. He had one or two moments in the spotlight but spent the majority of the time hanging back while Batman did everything. Overall, a good story, but do...more
Created to correspond with the Cold War conclusions and Reaganomics, Batman faces off against the Russian super-soldier known as the KGBeast. During the course of the titular ten days, the Beast works his way through a list of targets - culminating with attacks on Reagan himself. While the idea of a Russian supersoldier was started here, it worked much better with Marvel's Winter Soldier than our masochistic assassin KGBeast. A nostalgic read, but one that will takes less than one night to concl...more
Groundbreaking work -- I only go as low as I do because I found some of the attempts at hiding "the big reveal" to be a tad heavy-handed, and because I have become addicted to modern, glossy-paper full-spectrum palette color work, and this is still in the format of a generation back.
I had 3 of the 4 singles from the original run, so this story wasn't new to me.

Reading it now, it hasn't dated as badly as some stories that try and touch on current events.

The ending is excellent, only marred by the fact that there are sequels (of sorts) out there.

Recommended to Federiken by: Bajo precio.
Historia algo quedada en el tiempo pero no por eso mala. Es uno de esos comics que tienen un tufillo a su época que puede tanto oler bien como apestar mal. A mí me generó ambas sensaciones en distintos momentos. Cuando lo relea, seguro lo rerreseñe.

A true Batman classic. The first introduction to the KGBeast and a memorable on at that. Very good writing and very good story telling. This story set the example for the mini-series within the series format.
John Yelverton
A great collection of Batman stories that is one part mystery and the other part adventure.
Batman faces a Russian super assassin and saves Ronald Reagan? This book has it all.
