About this deal

The Worf Effect: Several of Gotham's most formidable villains get taken out by the monster, including The Penguin, Mr. If you’re curious to see a new take on Killer Croc and Batmans dealings with each other then this might be worth a read but otherwise you aren’t missing anything profound by leaving this one out of your collection. Instead this is what the head of Discovery should have made sure never saw the light of day instead of the Batgirl movie.

If you end up reading the book, really take the time to study all of Sharp’s pages, especially the panels that show the cityscape. All a bunch of neat little extras and Sharp’s concepts show he was going to initially draw this in a different style, which just confirmed to me that the style he ended up going with in the final product was the perfect choice for it.But now something far more frightening than a mere man stalks the shadows—and it’s after Gotham’s villains. Killer Croc's child may count too— its victims, though horribly injured, survive its attacks, because it loses interest and doesn't finish the job. Instead of largely comical tone of these issues, he decided to make a much more serious series, re-launched under Marvel's MAX imprint.

The only complaint I have with this book is I think it should’ve been a three-issue series, in those magazine-sized black label books, instead of something like Superman Vs Lobo, that ended up getting them.Ennis also sees Batman’s rogues in a hilarious manner, viewing most of the lot as outclassed, multi-colored twerps, who couldn’t actually come close to touching the efficient machine of a man that is Batman, even on their best day. With only Alfred and a Russian thug with connections by his side, this mystery leads him to shocking crime scenes that further corroborate the sole fact he’s got: there’s a monster out there. I saw an interview recently where Ennis talked about how this was one of the only superhero books that he genuinely enjoyed writing, and it shines through in the script.

But now something far more frightening than a mere man stalks the shadows and it s after Gotham s villains. In the end, this graphic novel is not the surprise any fan would’ve expected to get and, hopefully, isn’t the beginning of this creative team’s descent into mediocrity. gave birth to the creature that is assaulting the villains during a meeting where they tried to ally against Batman. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others.As he gathers clues, his trail eventually leads him to Killer Croc, and to a discovery that will change everything he thought he knew about his reptilian foe. He whips up a Dave McKean/Bill Sienkiewicz pastiche that's exhausting for a full issue, let alone six.
