Batman: Eternal #14 Review

Can Batman: Eternal continue to astound after fourteen weeks? Read on to find out.

The official description from DC Comics:

As the Gang War reaches a bloody climax, Batman and Jason Bard must bear witness to the horrifying last stand of The Penguin! Plus, Jim Gordon makes a terrible decision that will shape the rest of his life.

Batman Eternal #14 previewBatman: Eternal reaches a crossroads bringing an exciting conclusion to the Falcone reign of terror. The exhilarating battle between Falcone and Penguin along with glimpses into other development points made this a very dramatic issue with the question of what will be the next major change quickly coming to mind.

Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV continue to spin a fabulous tale with Tynion IV yet again producing a tense script. As usual Ray Fawkes, John Layman and Tim Seeley also act as contributing writers. The mysterious opening coupled with the intense confrontation between Falcone and Penguin made for some really suspenseful stuff. Tynion IV also handled the questionable ethics of Jason Bard brilliantly with the fluctuating morals proving to be very intriguing.

Jason Fabok, the artist who kicked off this series returns once again producing stunning pencils and inks. The realism and detail of Fabok’s art is what makes it so captivating with it being the perfect match for the Caped Crusader. The dynamic layouts and intense character expressions also add to the overall drama and intensity also giving tremendous atmosphere. Brad Anderson also rejoins Fabok to produce vivid tone to his stunning art.

Batman: Eternal takes a major step forward bringing one of the series biggest plot developments to a close in a sensational way. Highly recommended.

I am a nerd, and nerds are cool. Why? Because they get to go to magical places, and enjoy wonderous stories that could never happen in real life. In particular I've always had a keen interested in comics, having accumulated a vast collection over the many years. I eventually decided to utilise my vast knowledge of comics as well as my many opinions and become a review. This is were UTF came in, as after spotting my blog reviews they offered me a spot on their elustrius review team. One that I have been more than joyous to fill and have loved being a part of ever since.
