Zdarsky and Jimenez bring us an action sequence where Batman is wearing his mask and utility belt with a white dress shirt and slacks. I think I get what they’re going for. But it looked pretty ridiculous to me. What’s that look called? Business casual Batman?
The Penguin gets a good amount of shine in this issue. Jimenez gives him a very Danny-Devito-esque look. I’m always impressed when a creative team can make Penguin look like formidable opponent for Batman. That’s not always the easiest thing to do, despite his status as an iconic Batman foe.
