A Gothic tale,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Batman: Gothic (New Edition) (Batman) (Paperback)
I intially started reading this as a Batman book. I soon realised my mistake. This comic is much better read as a gothic novel. When the mystical elements are introduced it falls outside Batman's usual scope, but right into the scope of Gothic Horror. This is a nice dark tale, well written and well illustrated that is distinctive in its style. A good read and something I would recommend certainly to fans of comic books and Gothic Horror, and to fansof Morrison. This is different from his normal run on Batman, but something quite special. I often love interpretations that give a little twist to the characters we know and love. This story is different and benefits from setting itself apart. A good modern Gothic Horror tale.
