Batman 12 DCNUFanboy Comics Contributor Jason Enright brings you his top comic book picks for the week.

 

 

Batman #12
by Scott Snyder and Becky Cloonan

Batman #12 is unlike any Batman comic I have ever read before, and I could not be happier. Scott Snyder tells an amazing story about a young woman who is inspired by Batman to change her life for the better, and in doing so he may have just created a new favorite Bat character. What really stands out about this book thoughout is the amazing art by Becky Cloonan. Her style is fresh, vibrant, and, unlike a lot of the darker art we're used to in Batman books, a lot of fun. Even better, Snyder writes to her strengths, so that her style fits this story perfectly. You will definitely want to pick up this book, as it may be the standout issue of the year, and you definitely don't want to miss the introduction of Harper Row, the coolest new DC character.
