I Am Batman #12 Review

Answer The Question

Written By: John Ridley
Art By: Christian Duce, Rex Lokus, Troy Peteri
Cover Price: $3.99
Release Date: August 9, 2022

In our previous issue of I Am Batman we got ourselves a surprise in the form of Renee Montoya, but not only Renee but her alter ego, The Question. That's right, it's time for Jace Fox to have himself an old-fashioned team-up and who better than The Question to get that started with her pursuit of finding out who really shot Anarky during Fear State. While I do love me a team-up, I will say that bringing back Gotham characters after leaving Gotham so that this book could have its identity this soon feels like a misstep to me but maybe it's simply here to set up Renee's book coming down the line. Let's jump into this issue and see if Batman and The Question can get to the bottom of this mystery.

Like normal, I'm not sure if The Rising has happened yet or is currently happening, but what I do know is that Jon Kent, Superman has finally taken the battle to Bendix. After the previous issue where Superman and Jay Nakamura fought off a Bendix-controlled Senator, who turned into a giant octopus monster, the war between our hero and villain is going to kick off proper because, by the end of that issue, everyone in the world discovered that the person behind The Truth broadcasts was none other than Jay Nakamura, the son of the former President of Gamorra. Believe-you-me, Henry Bendix wasn't happy to discover this bit of information and may just take it out on Jay's prisoner mother. Let's jump into this issue and see what Superman is going to do to end this war before it escalates. Let's check it out.
