Comic Book Review: Dark Knight III: The Master Race #2 - DC Comics (2015)
Art by Andy Kubert & Klaus Janson
Batman, or girl, has been taken into custody and is being transferred to Blackgate prison. The Atom feels he has found a way to to enlarge the shrunken Kandorians. We also get to see Lara who looks to be a character to keep an eye on.
Only two issues in and there is so much going on. I'm really liking the fact that there are lots of subplots happening as they all feel separate yet you know they will all come together. As always with these monthly series, there is a big reveal at the end.
The Atom is also at work within this book and brings on a big reveal as he attempts to bring the people in the tiny city back to a normal size. The future will tell if this is actually a good idea or not.
So far so good from our people at DC Comics. I'm curious as to how many people will stick around with that $5.99 price tag. I keep hearing about comic book sales in general being down, but I don't think it would be so bad if the prices were lower.
This issue also included a mini book inside.
Wonder Woman #1
Written by Frank Miller & Brian Azarello

The book is called Wonder Woman but it feels more like it is about her daughter Lara. Lara trains with Wonder Woman but shows that the Amazonian steel blade is no match for her Kryptonian physiology. I definitely want to know more about Lara the more I continue to read the DKIII series.
