DC Comics and Batman #107 Spoilers and Review follows.

Gardener Is Among SEVEN New Character Debuts, But Who Is She After?

Plus Batman, Oracle, Harley Quinn and More…

…As Scarecrow Looms Large!

The book opens with three pages of…

…creators credits and…

…storyline catch-up for readers.

Batman is investigated the non-lethal Scarecrow left at Gotham City Mayor Christopher Nakano’s home where…

…he’s confronted by and escapes new Gotham City Police Commissioner Renee Montoya who we don’t know was or is the Question still; an important question since the new mayor is anti-vigilante and anti-mask in general political crusader.

Elsewhere, Harley Quinn subdues former Joker henchmen Stabbo, a new character, a remnant from the Joker, but…

…she also assaults a confronting police officer, who have anti-mask orders.

She is abetted in her escape by Ghost-Maker as the Gardener, new character number two, debuts presumably after Harley Quinn.

We then get a gorgeous display of Oracle / Batgirl’s clock tower lawyer, evoking the old CW Birds of Prey TV series, where…

…she and Batman are digging into the Unsanity Collective and its mysterious leaders Master Wyze.

It is then confirmed that Simon Saint, the man behind the anti-mask Magistrate Program, is in league with the Scarecrow.

The book ends with Match attempting to join the Unsanity Collective; I’m not counting this as a new character as I believe this is Batman’s updated secret alias of Matches Malone.

The back-up featuring Ghost-Maker sees…

…the debut of several new characters including Madame Midas, the Instigator, Razorline…

…Kid Kawatt and Brainstorm…

…totaling five new characters (making this whole book’s new character debuts seven) as the story ends with Ghost-maker vs. two robotic tigers.

The Pulse:

Both stories had a cinematic quality to them. The stories where intriguing and felt like they were brimming with ideas and creativity. The art in the lead in man story was superior to the back-up art, but the whole issue was entertaining and making for a satisfying read. 8 out of 10.
