‘Detective Comics #1026’ (review)

Written by Peter J. Tomasi
Art by Kenneth Rocafort
Published by DC Comics


This is another “Joker War” tie-in issue. Writer Peter J. Tomasi is keeping it classy on this title, giving us a story that exists well within the event, but completely accessible as well.

It is a mighty feat and I have to say that this is a fine issue indeed.

Batman is trying to keep it all together at this point in the story.

Bruce has lost his fortune and his way of life. In the midst of all this, he has some survivors of the Joker toxin in his care. He is trying to get them to safety through the Gotham City Sewer System.

There is an obstacle standing in his way.

That obstacle is the villainous Killer Croc.

The two of them face off. I have to say that this is one of the best face offs between these characters in quite some time. That is all because of the artwork from the amazing Kenneth Rocafort.

Rocafort is one of the most underrated artists in comics in my opinion. The artwork is cool, and the action is clear. It is also very dramatic and dynamic. The fight is the centerpiece of the issue and it is handled very well.

By the end of the book, we see the results of that fight. It also gives is a glimpse of what is coming next. It is an awesome ending and a nice point to end the book on.

This is another great issue in a continually excellent run.
