Detective Comics #987

Written by Bryan Edward Hill
Pencils by Miguel Mendonca
Inks by Diana Egea
Colored by Adriano Lucas

I am beginning to look forward to reading Detective Comics again. The first couple of issues since Bryan Hill has taken over on writing have not done a whole lot for me in the way of holding interest. Karma is a decent, yet slightly over-powered, villain. Even the way Batman defeats him in this issue… I’m not really buying it. Regardless… The thing that really made me look at this storyline from another perspective was in issue 985 when Karma kidnapped a bus full of children and lit the news reporter on fire. Seeing that drawn into the story forced me to perceive this storyline in a different light. Sort of looking at it from a morbid perspective.

We see in this issue, Katana from the Suicide Squad makes an appearance and introduces another new villain by the name of Martina Dementieva from Markovia. I must say, I am excited to see the interactions between Martina and our Bat-Family because she has quite an interesting power. I want to know what happens next and if you want to know what I’m talking about, include this issue in your pull for the week and find out.

There’s also some really cool Batman artwork in this issue. Batman brooding over in deep thought, the inside of his cape reflecting purple. Just really well done.
