To sum it all up..

BATMAN ANNUAL #2 is a book that will make grown men cry.

Posted November 29, 2017 by


BATMAN ANNUAL #2 is a book that will make grown men cry. DON’T MISS OUT ON THIS ISSUE. The acclaimed creative team of Tom King and Lee Weeks returns for Batman Annual #2. This team received praises for their work in Batman/Elmer Fudd Special #1 and the fans have long been clamoring for yet another team up between these two talented assets of DC Comics.

For preliminaries, play Some of These Days by Ella Fitzgerald on loop while reading this comicbook. Also, don’t forget the tissues. You’re going to need it.


Tom King is the only, and I mean ONLY, writer that can effectively pull his reader’s heartstrings without sacrificing the depth of the story. He has done this a couple of times already: Batman/Elmer Fudd Special #1 and Batman: Good Dog, just to name a few. Expect the same thing for Batman Annual #2. King perfectly elaborates the relationship that Batman and Catwoman had during their early years. I couldn’t ask for a better person to write the Bat and the Cat’s relationship. Let me summarize the story without spoiling any important developments in the book by saying that Tom King humanized the Batman. As regards to what, well, that’s for you to find out.

Lee Weeks… man, what can I say about the guy? The book was drawn beautifully. The expressions on the characters faces and all the Easter eggs at the background are nothing short of spectacular. Yes, you’ve read that right, there are a couple of Easter eggs in the book—subtle but evident. Week’s artwork was complimented by Elizabeth Breitweiser’s colors. The two work at a perfect harmony that benefited the artwork of the book.

As a final note, I love how Tom King finally answered (well, he indirectly answered) why Batman and Catwoman had different memories as to when they first met. Just beautiful… and yeah, I should stop there before I spoil the good stuff. JUST GET THE BOOK!
