BATMAN ETERNAL #4 Review

Posted on the 30 April 2014 by Geekasms @geekasms

We shake up some of the creative team in Batman Eternal #4 but that doesn’t stop the task at hand.  Batgirl is now involved with the quest to prove her father Jim Gordon is innocent.  Can Batman control her before she spins out of control?

We start with Jim Gordon on trial.  No surprise here but he is denied bail and sent to Blackgate Prison. Barbra didn’t take this so well.  She goes on an all out Bat-rage on some of Pyg’s henchmen.  A cop in prison is never a good thing.  Make it the ex-Commissioner and he gets recognized by some inmates.  The Bats better hurry up and figure out what the deal is.  With the new commissioner taking over the GCPD, he want’s Batman as the #1 priority.  It doesn’t help that he is corrupted by Falcone but nonetheless, focus is being pulled away from the real threat.  We get a glimpse at young Stephanie Brown touching base with her mom again with a nice twist added into that plot.  Batman makes an appearance at Falcone’s house to try to get some answers but no answers are found.

Right off the bat with this chapter, I noticed the visual style change.  It is different but it is still good.  I was really liking Jason Fabok’s work and was glad to see him work on the cover.  Dustin Nguyen does some fine work.  The writing and story have still continued with Scott and James and is on point.  I am personally having a hard time figuring out if I like the Eternal series to the Batman series more.  Both fantastic.  Both have Scott Snyder.  This series quenches my thirst on a weekly basis which is the big plus.  As I like to say, you can never have too much Batman.  Batman Eternal is still killing it….or severely beating it and hanging it upside down from a building.
