Well, I think I can safely say this is one of the best issues of any book from DC this year. I have to admit though, it took some time for me to really get excited about this book again. This issue seems to hit the right notes at the right times for me, especially on the role that Alfred plays. A lot of my complaints on this book post Damian’s death have been about it’s seemingly loss of direction. With Batman Inc ended, I believe this book can get back on track and truly serve up the story it’s been waiting to tell for the last six months or so.
Some of my favorite Batman stories have come out of the head of a Mr. Paul Dini, from The Animated Series to his run Detective, I’ve enjoyed a ton of Paul Dini’s work and any throw back to those awesome stories is a welcome rush of nostalgia. And so here we are again for the first time this month we have our new installment of Li’l Gotham and yes, it continues to be wonderfully nostalgic.
