    Batman Monsters collects 1990s Legends of the Dark Knight comics that have a weak creature link between them The Legends of the Dark Knight series supposedly focused on Batman s early years when he started out, but you couldn t tell with the generic, throwaway Batman stories in this volume The first, by James Robinson, sees Batman visiting London to fight werewolves Robinson was never the best Batman writer and having a stereotypical foggy London and blandly monstrous werewolves in the Batman Monsters collects 1990s Legends of the Dark Knight comics that have a weak creature link between them The Legends of the Dark Knight series supposedly focused on Batman s early years when he started out, but you couldn t tell with the generic, throwaway Batman stories in this volume The first, by James Robinson, sees Batman visiting London to fight werewolves Robinson was never the best Batman writer and having a stereotypical foggy London and blandly monstrous werewolves in the background doesn t make it a compelling read It was mostly sluggish and boring The second story, Infected, is written by Warren Ellis with John McCrea art It follows two genetically engineered soldiers who have broken free of their restraints and begun a rampage in Gotham, believing a war is on This is actually the best Batman story of the three but considering the poor quality of this collection, that s not saying much Alan Grant writes the final story which is about Batman s first encounter with Clayface and the villain s origin story It s very simplistic with some really contrived scenes that felt a lot like the Schumacher Batman films of this time a disappointing story from a usually decent writer Given the talent involved, you d expect far better than the really poor quality Batman stories you get here Instead, try Grant Morrison or Scott Snyder s books to see Batman written right, or check out the recently re launched Legends of the Dark Knight series that s actually pretty decent

    A few years ago, I made a chronology for how to read modern Batman I was focused quite a bit on creating the order, as opposed to just reading the books for enjoyment, so now I m going back to see how the chronology holds up.This collection wasn t available when I first created the chronology But it s a fun run of stories from the 90s Legends Of The Dark Knight series by some of thefamous writers currently in comics.I find much of James Robinson s work to be uneven, at best But his Were A few years ago, I made a chronology for how to read modern Batman I was focused quite a bit on creating the order, as opposed to just reading the books for enjoyment, so now I m going back to see how the chronology holds up.This collection wasn t available when I first created the chronology But it s a fun run of stories from the 90s Legends Of The Dark Knight series by some of thefamous writers currently in comics.I find much of James Robinson s work to be uneven, at best But his Werewolf story is better than I imagined it would be Not great, but a solid read Unfortunately, it s a bit hampered by John Watkiss s art, which starts off as perfectly adequate 90s Batman art, but degrades into a style that just doesn t work with the story.Warren Ellis s Infected fares much better, not just because of John McCrae weirdly engaging choices in warping human anatomy, but because Ellis has always been a solid writer His minor callbacks to Batman Year One are also fun little Easter eggs.The story closes with Alan Grant s take on Clayface s origin It s not spectacular, but it s a charming read and Quique Alcatena s art falls in line with the McCrae art in the previous story.I m going to add this to the chronology, as the fifth book, following Year One, The Catwoman Her Sister s Keeper, Batman and the Monster Men, and Batman Dark Legends.I recommend this for Clayface fans, Warren Ellis fanboys, people who prefer their Batman stories with an air of the supernatural, and people looking to flesh out their Batman collections with well told but lesser known stories from the pantheon

    This was an unfortunate look back at some less than stellar Batman stories All three involve monsters of different degree and none are impressive Two are throw away villains and one is a clumsy Clayface tale The art is okay for its time but not memorable Overall, this collection isn t worth the time.

    3 stories One very good story by Warren Ellis, a good werewolf story by James Robinson and a bad Clayface story by Alan Grant Not too bad for a collection of stories from the 90s


  5. says:

    The first two stories were mediocre but Alan Grant s Clay, which featured the first appearance of the modern age Clay Face Matt Hagen was superb.

    The stories in this book appeared in publication order, which was a mistake James Robinson s Werewolf was not the story to open with neither the characters nor the story are engaging, and it is too long However, it has a couple of surprising similarities with The Hounds of Baskerville, the episode of Sherlock that would air 17 years after the publications of these issues Next came Warren Ellis s Infected, which was why I bought this collection in the first place, years ago This story is The stories in this book appeared in publication order, which was a mistake James Robinson s Werewolf was not the story to open with neither the characters nor the story are engaging, and it is too long However, it has a couple of surprising similarities with The Hounds of Baskerville, the episode of Sherlock that would air 17 years after the publications of these issues Next came Warren Ellis s Infected, which was why I bought this collection in the first place, years ago This story is creepy, the monsters are memorable, and Batman is believable and sympathetic Of the several The Batman never uses a gun but this time he will use a gun stories that I have read, this is one of the best Finally, Alan Grant s Clay I, Clay This is my favourite story in the collection It is set within the first three weeks of Batman s mission, and follows the aftermath of a recent traumatic event in Bruce Wayne s life Although we know the overall outcome of the story, it is suspenseful At times, it is painful

    I read anything with Batman in it even when I shouldn t I trudged through reading Batman turning into a vampire, because well the man has been my favorite vigilant super hero I don t enjoy seeing Batman up against the paranormal I enjoy reading about him actually going up the villains created for him to fight They areentertaining and havedepth Horror and Batman just don t mix.

    These three stories aren t too bad They should be considering the quality of the names lined up here Alan Grant s Clayface effort is the best of the trio the script and art are both pretty good But what is the point of this book No self respecting Batman fan is going to want to buy a book containing three random stories The stories are ok but nothing special so it s not as if this is a cherry picking selection So a star deducted for stupid marketeering.


  9. says:

    Not a bad set of stories The GN itself is poor, no effort made with an intro, epilogue, anything, just straight reprints, including covers The stories are all decent enough, moody writing and art, and some nice early turns by James Robinson, Warren Ellis, and Alan Grant The clay face story is probably the best, though I do like the werewolf in London turn from Robinson A little cliched, but enjoyable Probably one for Bat completists only.

    Batman fighting monsters is not concept unheard of A couple of 1939 comics had him pit against a vampire called The Monk, who is able to command werewolves The stories here are enjoyable, but they do not really stand out as other Batman stories do.
