Batman #679



Batman #679
Written by Grant Morrison and Illustrated by Tony Daniel
Published by DC Comics


I liked this book a lot because it showed the crazy Batman that Robin keeps talking about in his comic book. Batman is so nuts now and has a new costume that is made up of a lot of different colors and it just makes him look crazier.

I like how Batmite showed up and kept talking to Batman and the statues started talking to each other and Batman. Everything is so weird now unless Batman is only thinking it and it’s not real.

I like how Batman had to cut out his tooth with a knife because he thought there was a tracking device in his tooth. At first I thought he was ripping out all his teeth but it was only one.

Batman is super tough in this book. He was beating everyone up so easily. And it was weird because he was using stuff like a pipe and a bat to do it. Usually he just punches and kicks the bad guys and uses all his training but he was really pounding on them with weapons. There were a lot of good fights between Batman and bad guys and Batman just totally kicked butt.

I like when the bad guy knew that Batman was Bruce Wayne. It’s cool how some of the bad guys know who Batman really is and it makes them more dangerous. I like how the Commissioner shows up at Bruce Wayne’s house to ask for help but the house has been taken over by the bad guys. I don’t think he knows that Bruce Wayne is Batman but he wanted someone to help him take down crazy Batman and Bruce Wayne is his friend.

I don’t think that Dr Hurt is really Batman’s father. Batman is Batman because he wants revenge because someone killed his father. He has to let someone else be Batman if his father is still alive. I think Batman is going to kick Dr Hurt’s butt real bad for lying about that. You can’t lie to Batman.

If Batman does give up being Batman I think Nightwing should take over because he’s older and cooler than the other Robins. I liked how Robin was in this book, too, looking for help. He knows something’s wrong and needs help to save Batman and their friends.

There was a lot of cool art in this comic. In the beginning when Batman broke the bat over the goon’s head was really awesome. I like how the artist draws Batman’s new costume. I like this one a little bit better. It looks creepier. My favorite picture was on the last page with Batman charging the prison with a bat and the Joker is just smiling and waiting for him.

I can’t wait to see what happens. If Batman is really crazy I think Robin is going to have to beat him up. I want to see Batman fight Joker next issue.

My Rating: 9 out of 10

You nailed it. NO ONE lies to Batman and gets away with it.

This should be taped to the doors of everybody who keeps claiming Batman R.I.P. is too complicated for anyone to understand.

I couldn't agree more. I'm surprised you didn't mention Bat Mite? Wasn't he super cool, but also kind of creepy?

Pretty much exactly what I came in here to say!

Great review, Kid!

Great job, Liam!!! You rock!

Wait...people say Grant Morrison's writig is too complicated? You're smart, Liam! I hope you're right, that Dr. Hurt isn't Thomas Wayne and that Bruce Wayne can keep being Batman. Nightwing is a good second choice, though, you're right - read Batman: Troika (some Batman and Detective Comics issues from the 1990s) to see Nightwing as Batman for a little while.
