What could be better, i ask you?
The original elsewords tale really is the best. Both comics collected here are great workings for the writers and the artists and are absolutely thrilling to read, even when you've heard the spoilers!
Personally, i think this s my fave elseworlds batman, and i've read them all (and theyre all good.) His suit and gadgets are simpler but better, his training and preparation is shown to be taught by some of the world's greatest minds at the time and his dedication to justice over revenge is challenged in this volume.
Also, this bruce manages to find someone who is able to love him and his batman duties, which is something we've not really seen before and i was happy about.
Old-school detective work and manipulation of victorian fear of the eccentric are used to great effect in this book and i loved every panel.
