A review by ladydewinter
Batman: Death and the City by Royal McGraw, Wayne Faucher, Paul Dini, Simone Bianchi, Stuart Moore, Andy Clarke, Don Kramer


A 3.5 book. I enjoyed most of these stories - it was nice to see Batman working as a detective, with rather a lot of Bruce Wayne moments. Especially because Batman seems more sensible here and less, well, like a dick than in other stories I've been reading recently.

I also liked the semi-reformed versions of the Riddler and Harley Quinn here. What I didn't like at all was the Bruce/Zatanna thing - this pairing still baffles me. It seems very contrived, and while I like Zatanna, it makes me wishing her to disappear because I really, really don't want to see this.
