Detective Comics #1062 Review


Gothic Knight

Written by: Ram V
Art by: Rafael Albuquerque, Dave Stewart, and Ariana Maher
Cover Price: $5.99
Release Date: July 26, 2022

It's time to welcome Ram V and Rafael Albuquerque onto Detective Comics, and I couldn't be happier.  No, I am not as fond of Mr. V as some are, but he has a huge thing going for him... he isn't Mariko Tamaki!  I am not here to upset the four fans out there that might have liked what Tamaki did on this book, but let's be honest; it was straight-up garbage!  Mariko has her niche (she is an Eisner winner, for Christ's sake), but Batman is not it.     That's fine, though, every writer has their thing, and now that she has freed up some time, she can start working on a sequel to Brush and Hobo or something.  I didn't know I needed to get so much off my chest!  Thank you for giving me the opportunity, like you had any choice, and now let's review Detective Comics #1062.

In our previous issue, we saw Lord Death Man come to Lazarus Island, looking for help from Damian and crew because apparently Flatline, Damian's "girlfriend" and Lord Death Man's sidekick went on him and was looking to finally end the resurrecting menace. Since we saw at the end of the Lazarus Tournament that Lord Death Man had plans for the heart that Flatline removed from the Boy Wonder, it looks like the Japanese baddie might just be up to one of his tricks. Let's jump into this issue and check it out.
