Crazy Robot Runs Amuck

Batman Confidential #2
Written by Andy Diggle
Art and cover by Whilce Portacio and Richard Friend

This new series that explores Batman's early days continues this month. I must say I think I liked this issue more than the first. At first I did not, it seemed like just another Robot running-amuck story, but Diggle reveals in the end that there is much more to it than that. The idea that a man's brain has been downloaded into the robot is pretty cool. I wish we could have seen that explored more instead of Batman just taking the memory cortex out so quickly. But I imagine Diggle will explore it more in the coming issues. Alfred's comments were great in this issue and reminded me a lot of Michael Caine as Alfred in Batman Begins and it was cool to see James Gordon with his old red hair again. The art is still kinda awkward and weird but I suppose fits in this book more than it would in any other DC book.
