Nov 19, Dale Pearl rated it it was amazing Shelves: ynovember , , comic-or-graphic-novel , batman. I can't remember the last time I read a batman comic. Possibly 30 years or more. I picked up Batman: Europa 1 at random.
I was not disappointed. This appears to have a short series arc, I believe just 4 episodes, but I will try to read the entire series. Exceptional artwork and an intriguing story premise makes this one of the better comics that I have read in some time. Perhaps I should be reading more batman?
The Batman universe is unfortunately to large and knowing where to start at i I can't remember the last time I read a batman comic.
The Batman universe is unfortunately to large and knowing where to start at is daunting enough to keep me from jumping completely in. For now this series will do. Dec 07, Logan rated it really liked it. Pretty Good! So apparently like Captain America White this was suppose to come out almost a decade ago but its only coming out now?
I guess Dc and Marvel like to save some stories for a rainy day. But any so this story batman has been infected with a virus and he needs to figure out how to cure himself. Can't really say more without spoiling, this is the first issue so I'm sure the twist and turns are coming! But overall a great read! Dec 03, Stacy Fetters rated it it was amazing. Over the past few years, new Batman has been sucking something fierce.
Then this comes along and changes the game completely. With the fantastic storyline and the righteous art, this will make for one hell of a great series. A virus hits Batman and he will die in a weeks time if he doesnt solve the problem. But will this virus make him team up with the one he hates the most? View 2 comments.

Mehr davon, bitte. Apr 08, Reshov rated it liked it Shelves: batman. It affects immediately, and sticks till the end of the plot. Bat takes a detour to the other side of Atlantic to find a cure for a terminal ailment while teaming up with an unlikely, foe. The illustrations are quite mature. There is bravado in the colours and a refined sense of story telling. Aesthetically pleasing. Feb 18, Amber rated it it was amazing. Angrily, Talia runs off after having been used and betrayed by the only two people she loves.
He says that each time he comes out of the Pit, he fears more and more what will come out next. Batman has no time to go after Talia, as he needs to get the blood back to Mr. Strange announces that Mayor Quincy Sharp has been brought into Arkham City and encourages the inmates to "provide him with the welcome he deserves". Batman decides to find Sharp and question him about Hugo Strange. Upon reaching the surface, Batman finds Two-Face's thugs surrounding Sharp with guns.
After taking them out, Batman interrogates Sharp about Strange but only learns that Strange had "powerful friends" who helped Sharp win the election at the cost of Sharp "turning a blind eye to Strange's experiments". Once back at the GCPD lab, Batman gives the blood to Freeze, which he uses to complete the antidote, making two vials. However, at the last moment, Freeze destroys one of the vials and seals the other into a vault, then tries to use the antidote to blackmail Batman into rescuing Nora Fries , whom has been kidnapped by the Joker as collateral to try and force Freeze to make the antidote.
They proceed to fight each other over the antidote and Batman defeats Freeze. However, it is revealed that during the fight, Harley Quinn had broken into Freeze's safe and taken the antidote. Freeze tries to help Batman defeat Joker, hoping that he'll rescue Nora, by giving him an armament of freeze bombs he developed. Unfortunately, on his way to Joker's hideout Vicki Vale 's news chopper is shot down by Joker, leaving her caught in a shootout between Joker and Penguin's thugs.
Batman easily rescues Vale and moves on, being informed by Joker that the attack was a distraction to buy Harley time to get back to base. Strange claims that he failed to stop the spread of illegal firearms, which he provided, in the city and that the inmates are preparing an uprising.
Using this, Strange has gained permission to activate Protocol 10 in 30 minutes. Returning to Joker's office, Batman notices that Joker has apparently been completely cured. Batman demands that Joker hand over the cure. Batman is able to defeat the others, and advances on Joker. Suddenly, Talia interrupts the fight, and surprisingly offers to give Joker the secret of immortality and make him the new leader of the League of Assassins. Intrigued, Joker agrees, but Talia plants one of Batman's tracking devices onto herself, subtly telling Batman to follow her lead.
Meanwhile, across town, Catwoman and Poison Ivy are arguing. Catwoman convinces Ivy to allow her to retrieve the plant from the confiscated goods vault. During the effort to break into the vault, Catwoman overhears Strange's plans to wipe out Arkham, and has apparently killed Batman. Against her better judgement, Catwoman proceeds to rescue Batman with success. Once outside, Batman realizes that Protocol 10 is actually missile strikes against Arkham.
It was a ploy to gather every criminal in Gotham in one place and wipe them out. With it, he is able to infiltrate Wonder Tower. Once inside, Strange contacts Batman over the PA system and says that the crime problem was his fault to begin with and his presence created an environment in which the criminal element has spiraled out of control, and there was never any way to truly rid Gotham of crime, until now.
Batman proceeds up Wonder Tower and eliminates Strange's personal guards before confronting him in his office. She succeeds, and Protocol 10 is halted. At that moment, Strange activates "Protocol 11" with his dying breath. Suddenly, the tower begins exploding around them - Protocol 11 was a self-destruct sequence. Once Batman recovers from the fall, he is contacted by Joker, who reveals that he has taken Talia hostage at the Monarch Theatre. Batman heads to the theatre and confronts Joker, demanding that he return Talia.
In turn, Joker, while holding Talia at gunpoint, demands that Batman give him the cure. Batman is confused at Joker's statement, as he is apparently healthy and had already stolen the cure. At this point, Talia breaks free from Joker, then stabs him with her sword, seemingly killing him. She then reveals to Batman that she stole the cure from Harley Quinn. However, realizing that it's never simple with the Joker, Batman begins to rethink all the strange occurrences throughout the night; a seemingly dead Joker dummy in a wheelchair, the two versions of the Joker card left in place of the cure, and a healthy Joker looking into a mirror that reflected a sickly Joker.
Connecting them all together, Batman realizes the truth: there were always two Jokers. Moments later, Talia is killed by the true Joker, who is indeed still very sick. Batman then engages Clayface in a fight, with Batman able to slow Clayface down using the freeze bombs given to him by Mr. After completely freezing Clayface, Batman seeming defeats him when he takes Talia's sword and cuts him into pieces.
However, Joker detonates explosives on the floor of the theatre, causing it to collapse, and bringing the fight into the room where the very Lazarus Pit that Joker had been looking for was located. After a brutal fight, Batman finally manages to defeat Clayface for good, then retrieves the cure and drinks it, curing himself of the TITAN illness, keeping the other half needed to cure Joker and the rest of Gotham.
Joker then attempts to jump into the Lazarus Pit to claim immortality once and for all and become the new leader of the League of Assassins. However, much to Joker's dismay, Batman throws the sword into the main generator, causing it to falter and knocking what's left of Clayface into the Pit. The controls and remaining generators go critical as a result as Clayface's body matter contaminates the chemicals of the pit, resulting in an explosion that completely destroys the pit and most of the room.
Now desperate, Joker demands that Batman hand over the cure. Batman pauses for a moment, stating that, because of all the misery he has caused, all the lives he has either ended or ruined, and that no matter how many times he apprehended him, he would just escape and continue to cause more pain and misery; he felt that maybe Joker did deserve to die.
Joker desperately tries to take the cure by force, stabbing Batman in the arm. However, he inadvertently causes Batman to drop the vial, shattering it onto the floor. Screaming in horror, Joker tries desperately to drink what is left of the now useless cure from the floor. Batman watches with pity, and states that, despite all the atrocities that Joker has committed, he still would have saved his life. Laughing at the irony of the situation, Joker comments that actually was pretty funny.
