I'm done with the double crossing, enough! Seriously if you're reading any of these rebirth volumes and you see a family member or close friend show up, it's them, they did it! There's no mystery and it's now in every rebirth volume, what is going on?
Overall i didn't like this one at all, thought the story was boring, the artwork is pretty good and it carries the story it's about the only decent thing about this volume. It ends on a cliffhanger ...more
That is not to say that Detective is without its faults — there are plenty.
First and foremost, the plot is kinda ridiculous. Without spoiling anything, I will say that the motivation and the actions of the bad guys in this book are unbelievably stupid. I ...more

So Detective comics focuses on the Bat family. The highlights probably being Bat-women and Red Robin. Someone is hunting them, Batman included, and Bruce thinks it's time to create a team. A badass fighting team that includes himself, Red Robin, Batwomen, two old Batgirls (Spoiler/Orphan) and also our fave muddy face pal, clay face! It's a odd team of sorts but gives us some really entertaining dialog and fight scenes.
I also love the ending (Issue ...more
Yes it is good. But is it also groundbreaking? No. Will it be remembered? Hmmm for some elements of it, yeah for a while.
This first arc of Detective Comics (DetCom) kicks of the DC Rebirth era ...more

Here for DC Rebirth, the decision was made to make Detective Comics home to a team book: Batman along with Batwoman, Red Robin (Tim Drake), Spoiler, Cassandra Ca ...more
This one was all over the place. The "bad guy" add no surprise, and I have to say that I really dislike how a lot of Batman's enemies are somehow tied to his past and his family. Come up with an original enemy, DC!
Batwoman as leader is excellent, Tim as Lt and strategist - of course, Spoiler as Sarge, Orphan as the muscle, and Clayface as the literal glue that holds them together.
I would like to start saying: Congratulations Batman, you have now seen all of your Robins die... at some point.
(view spoiler)[Okay, Red Robin didn't really die but for the rest of the characters he is dead (Without questioning that there wasn't a body as a proof that he was dead,

It's mostly a really nice surprise. Almost all the character bits play well, the art is great, and I like the team dynamic. Yeah, the Big Bad is kind of goofy, but I can live with that. This volume ends with a particularly good cliffhanger, too. I love a good cliffhanger.
I'm admittedly not a big DC ...more
The art has been solid (though my standard complaint about rotating artists still applies), I've been particularly impressed by Alvaro Martinez. Bonus: the Rafael Albuquerque variant covers are delightful.
