Action and Drama is Superheavy in Batman #46
DC Comics releases issue #46 of Batman. Subtitled “Superheavy,” there are 22 pages of story to venture through. Scott Snyder serves up the narrative while Danny Miki and Greg Capullo visualize it for us. It was released on November 11th, 2015 in print and digital formats.
At last, Jim Gordon’s Dark Knight comes face to face with Gotham City’s deadly new villain, Mr. Bloom in Batman #46. With the fate of the city hanging in the balance, Batman reaches out to the one man who might be able to help him: Bruce Wayne!
Writer Scott Snyder does a terrific job of weaving together several different storylines into his tale. He keeps the events within Batman #46 moving forward through plenty of action and drama. The Mr. Bloom character is a welcome addition to dark and sinister members of the Dark Knight’s Gallery of Rogues.
The artwork for Batman #46 gives readers an emotional platform to spring off into Snyder’s grim narrative. Artist Greg Capullo brings his own identity to each and every page of the comic through his blend of minimalism and detail. FCO Plascencia’s coloring is what really sets the mood for each panel. Your sensations are triggered by the shades and hues chosen to accent what’s happening in front of you.
Batman #46 is rated T for Teens. It contains violence and gore, profanity, smoking, and adult situations. Jim Gordon likes to enjoy a nice cigarette while getting briefed for a mission. Bruce Wayne and girlfriend Julie share a brief conversation before things get steamed up in the shower. Mr. Bloom wreaks bloody havoc at a dinner party and things get a bit graphic.
If you’re not presently partaking in the monthly adventures of Jim Gordon’s deputized Robo-Crusader, you’re probably not going to grasp what’s going on in the pages of Batman #46. Writer Scott Snyder is smack-dab in the middle of a story-arc right now. He doesn’t really slow down to explain things from one issue to the next.
You’ll get some visual enjoyment from the creative hands of artist Greg Capullo. To fully enjoy what’s happening, you’ll need to find the inspiration to go back and get caught up. I’m sure you’ll muster plenty of that within the pages of Batman #46.
Batman #46 is available now in print and Kindle editions.
