Batman: Detective #27

by Michael Uslan and Peter Snejbjerg

This one's an impulse borrow from the Library. It's an imaginary tale of Batman--I think they're still calling them "Elseworlds" tales. It combines the ideas of a secret society of detectives and a post-Civil War plot of revenge with a Bruce Wayne who has chosen a different road than to become the Batman. Like most "Elseworlds" stories of the Batman, it pays homage to the character's 68-year-old mythology, but this is the first one I've read that evokes a bit of the 1960s television show and laces the tale with puns and in-jokes. (Not as bad as the TV show, mind you, but enough that you can't take the story too seriously.)

Holy Conspiracy! Check it out!
