Who let the Dogs Out?

I must admit that Zero Year has kind of slipped my mind a bit lately.  With Forever Evil and even Gothtopia making the headlines, Snyder and Capullo's origin story has been on the back burner.  Don't get me wrong, it's not because of lack of quality.  In fact, it may be because of it.  It has been so good that I have been taking it for granted.  It's like I forget about it, then BOOM! It shows up to impress me all over again.  Batman #27 did it to me.  It snuck up on me and slapped me right in my face with it's goodness.

Scott Snyder seems to revel in giving little morsels out that taste good, but make the reader hunger for more and more.  With Batman #27, Snyder has invited us to the big boy table.  So much comes together in this issue, both good and bad.  Of course he throws in a couple more hints and clues for future issues as well.  This issue is not new reader friendly at all, but none of the Zero Year issues are and aren't meant to be.  This issue is for reader of the book and if you aren't, start at the beginning and you will be.

Greg Capullo's art is as awesome as ever.  It get's hard to keep writing about something so consistently good, so just take may word.

Bits and Pieces:

Batman #27 continues the Zero Year story and this issue begins to lift the curtain on Snyder's master plan. Readers there from the beginning will be rewarded this month.  Capullo continues the awesome art that combined with the story are making a book that may not be flashy, but is just plain awesome.
