Without question, one of the best things about DC Comics’s Infinite Crisis graphic novels will be the position it leaves the publisher’s superhero comics in. Writers will be able to start with clean slates, providing a great opportunity for new or lapsed readers to join the fun without having to worry too much about the decades of history they’ve missed out on.
Batman: Face the Face is the post-Crisis version of the Dark Knight. One year later, he comes out of relative retirement as his old stomping ground of Gotham City is swamped in gruesome murders. However, these aren’t just any old murders – the victims number amongst Batman’s all-time worst enemies. So is there an even more vicious vigilante on the loose? Only one man, and his boy-wonder side-kick, can be trusted to find out.
