Review: BATMAN #34 (SPOILERS)

It would appear that lightning can in fact strike the same spot two times in a row– huh, who knew. No, that’s just me giving a bit of a backhanded compliment to Tom King (writer) for giving us [yet] another solid issue of BATMAN, and [again] managing to not make it seem like the possible “Catwoman marrying Batman” isn’t a cash grab. Instead, we got an issue that continues what is turning out to be an overall good story arc.

I’m just going to start this one off with giving Joëlle Jones (artist) her rightfully deserved props, because she is killing it the last two issues. She’s made Selina look sexy as hell in tactical gear, and the point (granted, I don’t know if it was her idea or Tom’s) of using that “Knightmare” sequence design from BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE works to an extraordinary degree in this arc.

I think overall she’s given A+ quality work, and it was definitely on display in this issue with the intricate [and Tom usual] nine panel grid and the multiple splash pages.
