DC Comics Rebirth’s All-Star Batman #1 spoilers and review follow!

The main story by writer Scott Snyder and artist John Romita Jr. focuses on Batman and Two-Face. Batman is taking him to prison in stealth via his bat-jet / plane, but Two-Face has a stunning public offer!

He will reveal the dark secrets he has on so many people if they don’t down the bat-jet / plane and free Two-Face or if they do help Two-Face out they get cash, lots of cash. And, to Batman’s surprise someone immediately downs the plane!

…Hawkman foil the Gentleman Ghost!

In the back-up story by writer Scott Snyder and artist Declan Shalvey, called Cursed Wheel, we learn a former Batman partner / sidekick became a villain and its not Jason Todd the Red Hood. Who could it be?

We also see Batman and Duke Thomas in-costume throughout the back-up going after a threat with big B.

We don’t know Duke Thomas’ nom du guerre yet, but we know he is NOT Robin!

Citizens seem to be mysteriously bleeding out leading to…

A chilling cliffhanger!

So…

The opening “offer” story is strong on story and art. Why did Alfred betray Batman will be a compelling mystery while Batman travels with Two-Face! Not a fan of the art in the back-up story, but am glad we’ll be seeing Duke Thomas evolution in the pages of All-Star Batman.

BTW, how gorgeous is the below All-Star Batman #1 variant cover by Lee Bermejo?

However, is the 10 extra pages for All-Star Batman #1 worth an extra $2.00 making the book $4.99? Hmmmm. I’m not so sure.
