Hello and welcome to the latest edition of the World of Bats, the Batman Book Club! This week we’re continuing our look at the greater Batman Family by going through a book that heavily features the Batman Family as a team book. We’ll be covering Detective Comics #934-940, “The Rise of the Batmen,” written by James Tynion IV and drawn by Eddy Barrows, Alvaro Martinez, and Al Barrionuevo.
I’ve always had a soft spot for Clayface. Someone who can create someone as lovable as Annie (another great Tim story from BTAS) can’t be all bad. Adding him to the team was primo. His comic relief was so sweet and pure, you have to feel some affection for him.
