Exceptional graphic novel,
By A Customer
This review is from: Batman: War on Crime (Paperback)
While the story for Batman : War on Crime is a simple one and one which gives Bruce Wayne cause to reflect the reasons he donned cape and cowl it is the perfect vehicle for the sumptuous Alex Ross artwork which tells it.
Ross' renditions of Gotham and Batman are lush and intoxicating and the final scene of the Dark Knight looking over Gotham is fantastic. The oversize format is the perfect showcase and I can only imagine at how diminished the effect would have been if it were produced in a standard format.
If you like simple but powerful stories and want to enjoy some exceptional artwork pick up War on Crime - you won't be disappointed.
