DC Comics Universe and Batman #88 Spoilers and Review follows.
A Major DC Rogues Villain Death and Another Dies Too?
Joker, Penguin, Joker, Catwoman, Riddler, Deathstroke, Designer and More!
The book opens with Catwoman digging up Joker’s grave and he’s in there.
She seems aligned, for now, with the Riddler?
However, there’s more to Joker’s corpse than meets the eye? My first inclination was to think it was a Scarecrow hallucination, the talking corpse, but it appears its new villain the Designer and his grave robber or undertake type henchmen?
Elsewhere, the Penguin has captured Deathstroke, Gunsmith and their other allies, but Deathstroke frees himself as…
…Batman joins the party in dramatic fashion!
As distraction, Deathstroke slits Penguins throat; without immediate medical attention he will die.
This allows Deathstroke and crew to escape as Batman races to take Penguin for help; in the midst of that he reveals to Batman that the Designer’s target is Bruce Wayne?!
The book ends back at Jocker’s grave with Catwoman about to succumb to the Designed, but…
…Harley Quinn saves the day!
An action packed issue from cover to cover. Joker is dead, seemingly, and Penguin may join him, seemingly. Decent art and intriguing plot. 8 out of 10.
