Damn, this was a fun arc!

Sorry if some of this looks choppy, but it's broken up to 1) stay within the posting limits and 2) preserve some of the mystery, as well as the cool reveal in the last couple of pages of the book.



So, of course, Eddie takes the opportunity to clock Batman while he has the chance...









...and fumbles the rescue, because there's only so far you're allowed to upstage Batman when his name's on the cover of the book.



But at least they make up in the end. Kinda.



BTW, those last couple of pages that I'm not showing? They make me really, REALLY want to see this team do more with this Tut guy.

I've really enjoyed the fun story and fantastic art in this arc. This one's worth your money, folks.

So far, I am REALLY hoping that King Tut stays around as a Batman villain. I mean, yes, one could argue that the quota for riddle-leaving villains has already been filled, but he doesn't HAVE to keep doing that - there are any number of niches Tut could fill. Egyptian mythology, a royalty fetish, delusions of godhood (the Pharaohs, after all, were supposed to be living gods) - he could be like the cool, psychotic, Egyptian version of Maxie Zeus! And who wouldn't love that? Besides, he has the advantage over a number of villains already, since his character has been in the public eye for decades due to the '60's TV show. So a lot of people will go 'Oh, yeah - King Tut. Wait, he's a NEW villain? I thought he'd been around for a long time - that's interesting.' There's a hook right there. I tell ya, it'd be like printing money!
