Comic Book Review: Batman #49 - DC Comics (2016)

"Super Heavy"

Written by Scott  Snyder & James Tynion IV
Art by Yanick Paquette

Bruce Wayne is coming to grips with who he really is and Alfred is more than hesitant to allow him to become Batman again.

This book was far beyond what I had originally thought it would be.  I figured Ol' Bruce would remember he was Batman and it would be time to suit up and shake off the rust in a tussle with Mr. Bloom.  This incredible writing team put something far more interesting together.  Fans of previous versions of Batman will be nostalgic as they read this comic book.  You realize Batman isn't just a guy in a suit.  He represents so much more.  More than any normal man can handle.  Issue number 49 tells this tale extraordinarily.

Yanick Paquette was put to task with this issue as there are so many looks that had to be given to Batman.  This must have been an absolute fun challenge.
