    So far, it's fun. And I think Barrows art style fits the story. Looking forward to see where it goes.

    It's great to see mr bloom finally get some attention again. I'm curious why they put him on the team if he's alive though..

    I understand that this comic is canon, so Bane did die in the Joker series. Or was he revealed to be alive just to die in another story in preparation for Task Force Z? I ask, as I don't read neither book
    "The Batman is Gotham City. I will watch him. Study him. And when I know him and why he does not kill, I will know this city. And then Gotham will be MINE!"-BANE

    "We're monsters, buddy. Plain and simple. I don't dress it up with fancy names like mutant or post-human; men were born crueler than Apes and we were born crueler than men. It's just the natural order of things"-ULTIMATE SABRETOOTH

    I think he died during the A-Day event that preceded the Joker book (people think Joker did it, but he didn't).

    Oh, I understand. Thank for the answer. I've been a little away from the Bat books

    Late, but I've finally read the first issue, and I liked it a lot.

    Art is really nice looking here. I'm hardly a fan of Barrows work in cape comics, but here, his style fits the mood to a T. Dark, and dirty and dynamic with all that action showing in the story. And colours are really nice looking and made it shine even more. Lettering too, was quite nice: with different styles and uses and nice placing all over the different layouts.

    As for the story, I liked it a lot too. It's clear that every character have their different motivations and aims, and I think there's a slow-paced plot working on in the background. It kind of reminded me of a bit of American Gods, but lighter and with some humour. The bad guys are clearly malicious, like, in a very not subtle way, but also, it's the kind of not-subtle way that makes the reader wander how Jason is going to deal with them once he can find his feet with the absolutely murderous and uncoordinated zombie commando. Of course, the emotional struggle for Jason, besides the dilema of leaving and let them murder and torture people with these unwilling zombified criminals, or stay and risks his mental health besides his life and his own moral stands, is probably realizing that these zombies are still people, as much as himself, and unlike what Crispin-voice-boss says, they're not monsters and deserve a chance for redemption (it was the main theme running in several dialogue pieces in this issue. Redemption's one of the recurring themes for Jason, after all: has already been a theme under several writers with different approaches). I also wonder why this Crispin guy needs Jason. He's not that special (he died, sure. But besides that and being a bat...). Could've used anyone. I wonder what the writer will come with for the reason why. Some emotional manipulation based on Jason relating to the dead criminals is my guess.

    It wasn't great, but still, it was fun and fast paced. I'm definitely looking forward to the next issue, and see how this story builds up issue after issue.

    That being said, the dual wielding crowbars have to go forever gone. They're silly. Give him a chain, or a club, or several weapons. An axe, or something. Crowbars are very silly, honestly.

    I don't know who at DC headquarters thought giving him crowbars as a weapon was a good idea but it's not. It's one of the most uninteresting weapons you can give him at this point.

    Jason and crowbars are becoming a meme at this point.
