Batman on Man-Bat — there, we invented a syllabic-only palindrome.
Welcome back to beautiful Gotham City, brimming with futuristic architecture scant years after its historical gothic spires were razed to the ground. Hooray for progress! So if you look at it that way, the flood of malevolent lunatics trying to destroy the city and its people are just part of nature’s cycle of destruction and rebirth.
Fortunately, Terry McGinnis has plenty of opportunities to test that model, since the city has only gotten worse since the days of his predecessor. And though the skies are full of batlike men, they’re not Batmen, per se, and that wounds us as people. The basic human needs are, in order: air, water, food, love, and Batman. And frankly, we’re not sure love should come before Batman. So basically: we’re saying Gotham–and humanity–have needed this book. Enjoy!
