Quick Review

Batman - The Dark Knight Vol. 1:  Golden DawnBatman - The Dark Knight Vol. 1: Golden Dawn by David Finch

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

David Finch is an artist I like very much. His wrinkled, tangled, tight line is always dynamic and interesting. He is specially good at ugly. Gotta love ugly.

David Finch's Batman, however, at least as encountered for the first time here, is rather spoiled by supernaturalism -- always a failure of imagination in Batman -- and the kind of post-Frank Miller self-importance that by now is frankly a bit of a bore (Must the Fate of Humanity be constantly in play? How 'bought a bank robbery?)

Would that Finch had concentrated on his art and left plot to a pro.
