    Volume 2 isn t as funny, but the artwork greatly improves and Snyder continues his unusual, clever romp It s amazing what happens when JRJR leaves The artwork here is diverse, some better than others, but always incredible My favorite Jock But all are fantastic And Jordie Bellaire s colors are perfect as always Jock Francesco Francavilla Tula Lotay Giuseppe Camuncoli The story is similar to the road trip feel in Volume 1 It s a global adventure, each issue episodic and built upon the one Volume 2 isn t as funny, but the artwork greatly improves and Snyder continues his unusual, clever romp It s amazing what happens when JRJR leaves The artwork here is diverse, some better than others, but always incredible My favorite Jock But all are fantastic And Jordie Bellaire s colors are perfect as always Jock Francesco Francavilla Tula Lotay Giuseppe Camuncoli The story is similar to the road trip feel in Volume 1 It s a global adventure, each issue episodic and built upon the one before The villains Classic Rogue Gallery Mr Freeze, Poison Ivy, Mad Hatter, The Riddler, and of course, The Demon s Head Each issue is sort of a tribute to each villain, uniquely illustrated and thematic Snyder continues to create a unique Batman mythos His stories, like Grant Morrison but withgrounding, are fantastical and revolutionary Check this out

    This is not a Batman Story It s a Villain story That s what it says on the back of this volume Rather what it should have said is This is not a good Batman story It s a very mediocre Villain story So um Batman fights his usual cast But the stories and art are not much to get excited over Mr Freeze, Poison Ivy, Mad Hatter all show up as some sort of ode to Batman s villains issue Meh Scott Snyder has written some very good stories Some are even Batman stories This Ummmmm well let s j This is not a Batman Story It s a Villain story That s what it says on the back of this volume Rather what it should have said is This is not a good Batman story It s a very mediocre Villain story So um Batman fights his usual cast But the stories and art are not much to get excited over Mr Freeze, Poison Ivy, Mad Hatter all show up as some sort of ode to Batman s villains issue Meh Scott Snyder has written some very good stories Some are even Batman stories This Ummmmm well let s just say it is not his best work While not terrible I don t want to write any since it might convince you to read this I am not taking responsibility for that A short, mediocre review for a short, mediocre volume.That s something positive at least

    received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review 4.5 starsI could see the look in his eyes just before the flamingo hit The question How did I know Simple Because my family knows how to % fight.I think Snyder wanted to experiment with the After Death style in this book A lot of it is large art pieces with prose style text boxes It makes for a Batsy that doesn t speak much as most of his narrative takes place in thought boxes I actually really, really liked that Similar received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review 4.5 starsI could see the look in his eyes just before the flamingo hit The question How did I know Simple Because my family knows how to % fight.I think Snyder wanted to experiment with the After Death style in this book A lot of it is large art pieces with prose style text boxes It makes for a Batsy that doesn t speak much as most of his narrative takes place in thought boxes I actually really, really liked that Similar to Black Widow, Batman seems like a very internal person to me I don t think he would be prone to a ton of dialogue, especially when he s doing recon The story with Bruce and Pamela is actually really moving I ll admit, I didn t see a way to give us an emotional tie to Pamela I mean, I too love her relationship with Harley but I haven t really read much with the character and when I think of her, usually uma Thurman comes to mind The decision to give her a tie to a girl who s story parallels hers was genius It actually made me care for her quite a bit The art is very lovely in this book I love the colors as much as the last book and the lines have changed for the better They switched artists a few times and I liked all of them equally Again, this is a Batman I can actually like I love Bruce s characterization here I love the way he gets through to the villains in this series The portion with Mr Freeze was very good Mr Freeze is even kind of a sympathetic villain in that I understand why he s doing what he s doing I think Snyder is just really good at writing villains because Freeze is yet another that I didn t particularly care for before this book Bruce defeats Ra s al Ghul with wits and cleverness which is always something I like to see I love Bruce s relationship with Duke Of course it reminds me of his relationships with the Batboys but it s different because Bruce is trying to be different with Duke Duke s decision to find his own path as a hero was great I really liked the interlude into his life Also, Duke s been through a lot Give the guy a break, man I think the difference between Snyder s Batsy and Rebirth Batsy in other series especially that terrible King series is that his team ups and strategies actually make sense here I understand why he trusts these people, the relationships are well established and he s not doing things that confound me Also, the villains are not only well written, they re not complete caricatures I understand why their reasonings and they re not so ridiculously dramatic Everyone has a human side to them and Snyder gets that Which why, in my opinion, this book is leagues above King s Batman run But that ending though I can t wait for the next one

    To me, the only thing to like about this story is the art, each issue having a different artist Batman hops from villain to villain with each issue, one leading to the next This however, isn t my issue with the book Snyder tells each issue in a different style and I hated it The Mr Freeze issue almost felt like prose, told in third person with no word balloons The Poison Ivy had a typical comic style of storytelling The Mad Hatter issue was told in first person as relating a story from th To me, the only thing to like about this story is the art, each issue having a different artist Batman hops from villain to villain with each issue, one leading to the next This however, isn t my issue with the book Snyder tells each issue in a different style and I hated it The Mr Freeze issue almost felt like prose, told in third person with no word balloons The Poison Ivy had a typical comic style of storytelling The Mad Hatter issue was told in first person as relating a story from the past And then the Ra s issue back to a typical style It made the story very disjointed and hard for me to connect with It s obvious Snyder is bored with telling stories in a traditional format from what he s doing in All Star Batman and After Death, neither of which have I liked

into a story concocted by him and to have been utterly disappointed by what he delivered His vision is always fresh and innovative There s simply little room in his mind to be redundant and inconsequential in Batman s canonical stories After making such a big name for himself with the New 52 Batman series and lately with the insanely huge and cataclysmic Batman centered event, you sort of expect to be wow ed by his writing All Star Batman is however his outlet to delivering not only well though out stories, but to also explore art in ways that have not been done before.Ends of the Earth is a four part story that collects issues 6 9 of this series There s also a bonus story arc that concludes The Cursed Wheel that began in My Own Worst Enemy At first this second installment seemed extremely short and scared away all expectations I could have as my brain kept on telling me that it might not have enough pages to deliver something worthwhile Who could with just four issues, right Good thing that Scott Snyder is a man with a particular set of skills who could turn the dullest things into the most prized possession.The main story arc is what I would describe as poetically tragic Each issue could be seen as a chapter that focuses on a particular villain With the artwork being swapped around between different artists Jock, then Tula Lotay, then Giuseppe Camuncoli and back to Jock , the style adds dramatic value to the story that Scott Snyder tells With a lot of depth in his writing, themes of death and life, as well as passion and desire, are weaved into each villain s core motivation It s not even just about exploring why they do what they do, but to see who they all do it for.The artwork isn t exactly something that will appeal to everyone The drastic change from one issue to another is pretty apparent and some of them might work much better than others for fans What I liked about this particular alternating style is how it all blended well with the writing for each chapter instead of looking at it as a whole The way the final chapter also wraps things up makes it evenneat and impressive This really isn t a Batman story It s all about the villain s, and Scott Snyder does an impeccable job in bringing into play each of these villain s particular personality while making sure that the artwork did justice to the darkness and cruelty in everyone s life.The artwork in general also doesn t follow the conventional structure you d find in comic books What Scott Snyder and the artists on this creative team do on that regard is really intriguing It destroys the fixed pace so that it can have its own rhythm, and it really plays well with the poetic writing The colours are also very distinctive from one villain to another It ll feel like you re in a trance reading some of these stories It can also be argued that some of these villains also make it inevitable to go through that very psychedelic experience.The Cursed Wheel storyarc is probably the least important and also the least interesting part of this volume for me It has nothing to do with the main story arc and rather continues an identity crisis story around Duke Thomas It s sort of like an origin story for the character and clues fans into where exactly Duke Thomas finds his suit, name and purpose in life While it wasn t the most captivating thing out there, it still had Scott Sndyer s signature all over it and made it ultimately intriguing in the ideas it was trying to convey.Aiming for something that goes full circle and ties it all together with a nice twist was really ambitious, but Scott Snyder knew how to deliver it Ends of the Earth is a great volume that continues to prove the world why he s one of the greatest writers DC has ever known I m definitely pumped to see how the next volume goes.Yours truly,Lashaan Blogger and Book ReviewerOfficial blog is the man A four part story that has excellent writing and original artwork Art style is however not for everyone and literally changes from one chapter to another going from one artist to another However, it all works out for the better in the end and wraps the story up neatly I like how they re exploring new ways to do the art in this series I wonder what the whole prestige layout DC has been teasing is about Might actually make comics into evenamazing pieces of art P.S Full review coming soon Yours truly,Lashaan Blogger and Book ReviewerOfficial blog

    Not as good as volume 1, but still a solid read Here Snyder dedicates each of the four issues to one case and one villain, then pulls them all together into one narrative in the finale, and it results in a story that feels a bit choppy and contrived Still, at least two issues were great on their own the Mr Freeze and Poison Ivy ones , and the art throughout was top notch Jock, Tula Lotay oh how I wish she could do interior art in comicsoften, I love her style , Giuseppe Camuncoli, Fr Not as good as volume 1, but still a solid read Here Snyder dedicates each of the four issues to one case and one villain, then pulls them all together into one narrative in the finale, and it results in a story that feels a bit choppy and contrived Still, at least two issues were great on their own the Mr Freeze and Poison Ivy ones , and the art throughout was top notch Jock, Tula Lotay oh how I wish she could do interior art in comicsoften, I love her style , Giuseppe Camuncoli, Francesco Francavilla, all top tier talent bringing their best game for this volume I also enjoyed the continuation of Duke s backup story muchin this volume than its beginning in the first one Overall, not Snyder s best Batman work for sure, but a fine read nonetheless
