BATMAN ETERNAL #12 Review

Posted on the 25 June 2014 by Geekasms @geekasms

We are back to business in Gotham City.  Gordon is starting his trial and time is running out before Batman and his crew along with the part of the GCPD that knows Jim is innocent can save him.  Batman makes a surprise appearance to visit Gordon to let him know where he stands.  Red Robin gets hacked by Harper Row and discovers that Alfred has a daughter.  We get a continuation of the Batgirl and Red Hood in Brazil part of the story for a short bit before they head off to Gotham to attend the trail.  We hear the opening statement from the prosecution at the trail and it is pretty harsh.  Lieutenant Bard and Bullock call upon Batman with a plan to try and stop the gang war by the end of the week but it involves something extreme.  That at the end, just for good measure, they introduce another character to the story.

I have to say I am pleased with this issue.  It was a HUGE improvement over the last issue visually and literally.  I like Mikel Janin’s art and I think it fits the style of the Batman Eternal story a lot better than last issue.  Unless the team working on getting Gordon off the hook can come up with some major evidence proving his innocence, things are looking too good for Jim right now.  As a major plot point, Jim Gordon is a major focus in this chapter of the Batman Eternal story.  I thought it was a nice touch to throw a panel of Lois Lane covering the trial in there.  Makes me wonder if ol’ Supes will show up later but I highly doubt it.  If he does, Batman might have to save him too.  I know we are only 12 issues into a story that is going 60 issues but I have to wonder what some of the characters are up to that have showed up quite a few issues back.  I will have to keep on reading to figure that one out I guess.
