Check Out The First Pages Of Detective Comics #5

Gruesome things have been happening in the recently rebooted Detective Comics. How gruesome, you ask? [Spoilers if you haven't been reading.]

The Joker's had his his face removed. Hapless citizens of Gotham have gotten cut to pieces and sewn back together, courtesy of a new villain called The Dollmaker. It's been a grotesquely violent run by Tony Daniel and crew, with fast-moving action and twisty clue-hunting by the Dark Knight in a very well-drawn run.

Now Kotaku's got a sneak peek at the first few pages from Detective Comics #5, which opens with a cult-like Joker demonstration. It's out this Thursday in comics shops and digital comics storefronts everywhere.

    Meh, the Detective Comics run has been dishwater dull compared to the brilliant working going on over at the Capullo drawn, Snyder written Batman book.

    When you've got a serial killer who cuts people up and sews them back together and your book is boring you have problems.

      With you completely on this - Snyder is excellent with the character, and I hope he stays onboard for quite some time. The Black Mirror was insanely excellent!

      Daniel, however, still kinda stinks as a writer. I just don't buy his Bat. His first issue in the run was pretty good, and I was quite excited, but the next three have been just dull. This one looks slightly better from the preview, so we'll see how we go, I guess.

      Tomasi's Batman and Robin hasn't been too bad either, and Williams' Batwoman is typically great.

    Batman and Robin has been great.
    Robin, Batmans own son, is a little evil psycho!
