cyberghostface: (Batman & Robin)
[personal profile] cyberghostface posting in [community profile] scans_daily

Here is the final installment of the Batman Vampire trilogy. In my opinion, I would have ended it with the second installment as I consider this to be the weakest of the bunch, but maybe you'll think differently. Once again, this was a full-length graphic novel, I'm including a third (32 pages out of 94).

Also if you liked the trilogy you can get it for pretty cheap in the form of a single trade paperback at Amazon right now.

In the aftermath of Batman's staking, Gotham has been overrun by various villains--in addition to Two-Face, Killer Croc stalks the sewers. The Penguin, Scarecrow and Poison Ivy are also spreading their own brand of evil.

Alfred decides the only thing he can do now is to bring his master back to life. Venturing into the crypts, he wrenches the stake out from Batman's corpse.

Now a monster, Batman begins to slaughter the various villains of Gotham, murdering the Penguin and the Riddler.

Gordon tells Alfred that Batman's become more than a murderer, but a predator; killing has become natural to him, and all he can do is choose his prey selectively.

Batman is well aware of Alfred's plan of betrayal, but does nothing. He doesn't know what is becoming of him, or what he truly wants--death, or immortality. He slaughters the Black Mask and his gang, and leaves their heads on the spikes of Blackgate Penitentiary as a warning to the prisoners inside. He then arrives at Arkham Asylum, and massacres all the homicidal inmates before leaving a message to the warden writ in blood, telling him to go home for his work us done.

Inside the cave, Alfred, Gordon, Two-Face and the rest attempt to lure Batman to them, but Batman is well-aware of their treachery.

During the melee, Gordon gets a clean shot and shoots.

I hated the fact that both Alfred and Gordon died (and that Gordon suffered the lamest death ever) - it would have been so much more poignant to me if at least one of them survived.

However, Batman talking filthy to Gordon is always most welcome in my world. XD
