Holy Repressed Costumed Vigilante. . .

Batman: Bruce Wayne Fugitive

Although I thought Frank Miller’s Dark Knight sequence was a brilliant re-setting of Batman, I have to say that whenever I dip into my children’s comic collection I find the thin-lipped grimness of it all a bit too much to take.

There’s a part of me that still hankers after the Adam West-era Batman or those early Bob Kane strips. This everyday story about contaminated heroin on the streets of Gotham with an over-aching conspiracy line was just a bit too predictable for its own good.
