"What are you a detective?"
In this nifty Batman anthology (you get three excellent stories here) we get to see the Dark Knight outside of his usual stomping ground of Gotham City to other parts of the world where the danger is no less threatening & the menace downright sinister. Personally, I've never come across a Batman book that I didn't like or find so mediocre that I had to put it down. These are all great stories with equally beautiful art so you really can't go wrong.
This story of The Batman goes overseas to three different countries in Batman International. The other interest and neat aspect of the graphic novel is that it has three different authors and three different artists giving each story its own feel and flavor. The three countries he gets to patrol: The Scottish Isle, Spain, and in a flashback, somewhere in The East as he was in his youth training. I like the way they put the three together it is an interesting trifecta.
Can Bruce Wayne ever take a vacation without bumping into some sort of trouble? Can the Caped Crusader ever take a day off and relax? Will citizens around the globe ever give The Batman and Alfred a few days off to just chill and maybe play Scrabble? How many different Batcaves are there in the world?
I am just full of questions after reading this graphic novel. Where is Robin in all this fun? Maybe he doesn't have a passport, I don't know. All kidding aside, the read was a good one and the stories that they gathered together worked well in the graphic novel. The flashback piece at the end, the artwork wasn't really to my liking, but the story told was strong. I also don't think they even tried to explain what Croc was doing in Spain. Maybe he was there for the weather. Do I suggest taking some time from your day to enjoy this? Yes, or I wouldn't bring it before you, give Batman International a try.
