Welcome back to another installment of World of Bats, the Batman Book Club! This week we’re continuing our look at the crime side of Gotham by getting a closer look on the consummate gangster of Batman’s rogues gallery and his origins, The Penguin! This week we’ll be covering the mini-series Penguin: Pain and Prejudice, written by Greg Hurrwitz and drawn by Szymon Kudranski.
The painful and dark past of one of Batman’s most devious foes is examined. How did young Oswald Cobblepot go from being the apple of his mother’s eye to the leader of underworld gangs and adversary of the Caped Crusader?
