Red Hoods and Riddles: A Batman #22 Review
Last month, Batman 21 opened up a new time period for our favorite hero in which Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo hoped to explore the beginning of Batman before he was actually Batman. With the dawning of the New 52, earlier Batman origins were put out of date and needed updating. Snyder has taken the idea and run with it, launching Zero Year, an eleven-issue origin of the Dark Knight that was hinted at in Batman #0.
The first issue brought us a glimpse of the early Batman and the Gotham he’ll rise up to protect. It was ripe with early Batman elements, foreshadowing and intrigue but it was too hard to tell if this this arc was going to be special.
Issue 22 delivers much more than a reassurance, it revitalizes the Batman myth in a way not seen for a long time.
