Hello and welcome back to another installment of the World of Bats, the Batman Book Club!
This week we’re continuing our trek through the crime noir side of Batman with TWO excellent one-shots.
First off, we have DC Comics Presents: Batman – Gotham Noir, by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips.
Don’t miss this Elseworlds classic set in a stylish Gotham City straight out of classic mystery films, starring a down-on-his luck cop called Jim Gordon and the mysterious Bat! Plus, from BATMAN #604, The Dark Knight returns to Crime Alley for an encounter with Catwoman!
And after that, we have the Batman/Elmer Fudd Special, by Tom King and Lee Weeks.
After a chance meeting with billionaire Bruce Wayne, Elmer Fudd’s obsession quickly escalates into stalking Batman through the dark alleys and high-class social settings of Gotham City. Welcome to Bat Season! And the bonus Looney Tunes backup story features DC characters written by Tom King and artwork by Byron Vaughns.
So whatever thoughts and/or film noir monologues you have, let us know!
