Things kick into high gear for the weekly series so let’s give it is first legal drink!
CALLED IT! IN YOUR FACE! YOUR FACE! AND ESPECIALLY IN YOUR FACE MRS. FORD FOR SAYING I CAN NEVER PICK UP CLUES WELL! IN YOU THIRD GRADE TEACHING FACE!
So yeah Hush is the mastermind behind the events of Eternal. IN YO-
This issue is a hot shot of whiskey the book needed as two of its biggest masterminds come back to help jumpstart the book again. Our reveal comes from Hush breaking into Wayne Manor and eject Alfred, being badass, with the Fear Toxin and that it pushing Julie closer to discovering Alfred and Bruce’s secret and holy shit I was blown by how one plot thread moves along another. The look of Hush is well Hush and Jason Fabok is again one the better artists out there today and especially works with Batman. I’d love to see more of him here and the book seems like it will deliver on that.
The book is moving fast along now with Bard becoming Commissioner and oh yeah, he’s in on the job. After Carmine fesses he doesn’t know anything of who’s behind it, Batman takes the evidence that’ll get Gordon off, hush you dirty minded pervert, after he was just given his life sentence, he destroys it himself.
Tynion makes this twist really work and I find it shocking and really believable, though I called it, he gives it a kick and that kick helps makes this one the series best issues yet. He and Fabok are a wonderful team together and I think the more central focus here did the book good.
The wheels are turning faster than thought and I’m still loving this book!
