Batman and Flash!? What more could you ask for?

Posted September 21, 2017 by



In the dark multiverse, Batman is getting older and slower. Needless to say, his obsession for saving lives also grows stronger. However, Father Time never took Batman’s side. He needs the speed force to become the ultimate hero of the universe he lives in. Will Batman become the ultimate hero of the multiverse or will this thirst for power corrupt him?

Fans of The Dark Knight Returns will definitely love this issue. There are a lot of TDKR easter eggs and homages included in this book and I think it was done with a purpose. Batman here is an older and slower Batman who is obsessed with saving people’s lives — especially those that are close to him. Batman fears that being incapable and incompetent to save anyone. And that fear resonates throughout the story. I just love how well it was written.

The art of Carmine Di Giandomenico is the cherry on top. I just love how his art is orderly and messy at the same time. Overall, I enjoyed reading Batman: The Red Death #1. I hope DC continues this story because it feels like an upgrade to their Elseworld stories.

Do I think you should get this? HELL YES! Batman and Flash!? What more could you ask for?

Review by Paolo Ollero, co-founder of The Dark Knight Philippines, the premier Batman group in the country.
