Hello everyone, and welcome to another installment of the World of Bats, the Batman Book Club!
This week we’re going to go a little more Elseworlds and explore a different take on the Batman mythos by covering the four-part mini-series Batman: Creature of the Night, written by Kurt Busiek and drawn by John Paul Leon.
Young Bruce Wainwright lost his parents in a violent crime…and in the real world, no superheroes exist to save the day. But as grief and rage builds inside Bruce until he feels he can’t keep it inside anymore, something strange starts taking wing in the Gotham night! Perhaps Bruce’s grief isn’t inside him after all? Modern masters Kurt Busiek and John Paul Leon unite for the spiritual companion to the beloved SUPERMAN: SECRET IDENTITY, putting a new spin you’ve never seen before on the legend of Batman—and the dark emotions that drive him!
This week’s reading will go from 2021-01-09T06:00:00Z → 2021-01-15T06:00:00Z, though you’re always good to bump up the thread to share your thoughts.
So let us know what you think of this mini-series!
