Book Description

10 April 2012 Batman
Azrael brings together his Angels of Death and invades Gotham City. It's up to three members of the Batman family Dick Grayson, Tim Drake and Selina Kyle to prove to the vengeful group that Gotham is worth saving. But their own personal pasts might not make them the examples of purity and virtue needed to save the city.

2.0 out of 5 stars Insufferable 4 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I found this to be intolerable. The artwork is adequate to not distract one from the story. However, the story and ideology of the piece are insurmountable. This story arc is heavy with religious overtones and supernatural manifestations represented by two prominent characters, Azrael and Crusader. If you prefer Batman stories that are less ideological, heavy handed, and suffused with the supernatural to the extent you almost have to suspend disbelief on every page then I would recommend that this title is not for you.

The rating of two stars is to indicate that while I may detest this book that distaste could be due to a disagreeable ideology and its clumsy presentation.

3.0 out of 5 stars Gotham Shall Be Judged and Reader Shall Be Bored 14 April 2012
By M. O'Connor - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
3 stars is generous. The art is really good. I am a huge fan of Red Robin and liked that Tim Drake is worked into the story. Catwoman's interactions with Dick Grayson are sometimes off-putting. I am very ready for Bruce Wayne to come back to Gotham. He would have handled the situation in this story differently.

This is NOT a Batman centered series. Half-way through I figured that this book is only titled "Batman" to sell the book. After finishing I still somewhat think this is to be the case. It does seem to set up Dick Grayson's (Batman) next meeting with Ra's al Ghul, so I hold out hope for something good to come after. However, this lead-up could be followed by any conflict (even one completely removed from this story) with Ra's.

This novel is almost entirely about Azrael and his internal struggles. I find Azrael stories boring and one-dimensional for the most part; it always is about his struggles to hear what God is calling him to do. Michael Lane has the same family issues he always has. I am very thick-skinned Catholic and find the overt Christian symbolism (use of the cross/crucifix), use of the Church (I liked it better when they used St Dumas "cult" instead) and theology borderline offensive.

A decent quick read because the story structure is okay. It is predictable and you'll know the ending long before you read it. I do not see myself picking it up to re-read often. Although you do not need much knowledge about the Batman story continuity or the DC universe this is not for the casual Batman reader; there are much, much better novels for this class of comic book enthusiasts that will do the Dark Knight real justice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Story..... 20 Mar 2013

I love how powerless vigilantes are vulnerably put to the test and somehow pull through. Azreal's story is great as well.

Great story..

Not my kind of batman and not familiar with other characters. Supernatural and Batman? Not! I would not recommend for the pure batman fan.

1.0 out of 5 stars Offensive and way too religious 27 Sep 2012
By Khalid Ahmed Althani - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really didn't like this comic. It's way too religious, if you're not christian, you'll hate this comic. It has little to do with batman by the way.
