To sum it all up..

In BATMAN: THE MURDER MACHINE #1, we see Batman succumb to emotional corruption.

Posted September 29, 2017 by



Opening the portal from the Dark universe was just the tip of the iceberg. The nightmare versions of Batman are now causing catastrophic disasters all across the home cities of members of the Justice League. Can Cyborg prevent The Murder Machine from invading his home town or will his city suffer the same fate as that of Gotham City and Central City?

In BATMAN: THE MURDER MACHINE #1, we see Batman succumb to emotional corruption. Batman fans would agree with me when I say that Batman has always been on the edge of human emotions. No writer nor story ever explored the possibility of pushing Batman off the edge and making him let go of his feelings. I just love the narrative that the more Bruce recognizes his emotions, the more he becomes a cyborg.

Riccardo Federici’s artwork supplements the vibe of the story. I know I’ve been saying this a lot, but man, oh, man, Murder Machine is something else!

I am impressed with the Batman nightmare tie-ins. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting the main tie-in to be this good. But overall, it is really a treat to explore the different nightmares of Batman. And seeing these nightmares come to life is overwhelming.
