Batman #56 Review
• Tony S. Daniel & Tomeu Morey (Cover Artists) •Tomeu Morey (Colorist)
After a few decent to slightly above average issues, Tom King blesses us with a gem.
Batman #56 continues the KGBeast story arc. Nightwing has been shot in the head and is presumably recovering in his own series. I wouldn't know I honestly haven't been following that comic.
Batman desperately searches for the KGBeast and pull on all of the meager threads he can find, braving New Gods and also the extreme weather of Russia to complete his mission of bringing the villain to justice.
This a beautifully composed story that bounces back and forth between Batman's search and KGBeast having dinner with his father. I feel that Tom's experience as a C.I.A. Agent helped flavor this issue as Bruce uses intelligence tactics to track down the bad guy.
Tony Daniels, Danny Miki, and Tomeu Morey are our art team and as usual, they produce an absolutely stunning issue that perfectly compliments the urgency of Tom's script.
When Tom King is firing on all cylinders few writers can match his output. Batman #56 is an excellent example of why he's one of the top writers in the industry today.
