Pleasantly Surprising (review for entire series)
Reviewed in the United States on October 24, 2018
This is a another fantastic piece of work by Scott Snyder. It has not been about a year since I have read this run, so I'm trying to recall some minor details of this book. Let me just say that this is an example of a GOOD Batman crossover. Yes, it follows various character perspective, but I don't think it wastes any of your time and it is very entertaining, and I'm someone who typically HATES crossovers. The premise of the book is this: there has been a train bombing and the evidence points to Commissioner Jim Gordon committing this act of terrorism. Throughout the story, Batman must find evidence that Gordon was framed and prove his innocence. I think this is a great set-up because it causes a lot of characters to go crazy, dealing with this disaster and shows characters react in different ways. Batgirl (who is Gordon's daughter) goes on a vigilante rampage to clear her fathers name. There is some very well done fan service with the character Stephanie Brown who actually plays a big role in this story after she was originally erased from the New 52 universe. This series is no masterpiece, but it is very entertaining in my opinion. There are some very great twists and fun dialog throughout, its a good time. I would definitely recommend checking out this series.
