When final we left the one-handed Caped Crusader, he barely managed to cease a venomized Ghostmaker from setting off the multiversal gasoline bomb (It is okay. Multiversal gasoline is not a factor, and Zdarsky makes no effort to clarify it, so simply go along with it.). With a metropolis underneath siege by crop-dusting Man-Bats, Halliday manages to gather sufficient multiverse vitality to meet his mission – visiting the time and place of Joker’s creation so he can study the way it occurred and notice his personal potential.

Plot twist! Zdarsky makes use of Halliday to display a twisted model of the Observer Impact, and Halliday comes to appreciate that by coming into the Joker’s thoughts to see how the Joker was created, Halliday turned the catalyst for creating the Joker within the first place. In impact, Halliday is the multiverse’s Joker maker.

Overcome with the belief of who and what he’s, Halliday dives into the multiverse and begins creating Jokers all over. Batman has no selection however to rapidly collect some devices and pursue Halliday to cease him. What follows is a rapid-fire stream of stops throughout the multiverse the place Batman meets Jokers and Batmans from each incarnation conceivable – from Keaton’s Batman to the Darkish Knight Batman to the Adam West Batman and extra.

With out spoiling any greater than I have already got, the final web page takes all of the wow moments and glossy novelty of visiting each Batman underneath the Solar and pushes it one step additional

Kudos to Zdarsky (once more) for going large to cease from going dwelling. This difficulty is among the uncommon examples the place pulling in a number of artists pays off in spades. Batman does not simply go to alternate variations of himself. He visits alternate variations rendered in the identical model because the supply materials, and it appears nice.

Does Batman’s lacking hand get addressed? Sure, nevertheless it’s not a whole cheat, so extra kudos to DC for addressing the lacking hand with out waving it away (*ahem*).

Does Batman get dwelling? No spoilers on this level, however the ending is satisfying.

Which ends up in an odd level. The ultimate web page ends with a “The Finish?”, which reads oddly contemplating what occurs on the final web page and the shortage of decision for Failsafe. You virtually get the impression Zdarsky is saying goodbye, however that would not make sense in context. I assume we’ll discover out in June.

Bits and Items:

Batman #135 reads like Chip Zdarsky watched Spider-Man: No Manner Residence and stated, “Yeah, I can prime that.” And he does. The small military of artists offers you each Batman you possibly can think about for a multiversal journey for the ages, and it really works.
