This week we will be discussing Batman: The Cult by Jim Starlin and Bernie Wrightson, with colors by Bill Wray. Here, for example, we get to meet the Miagani tribe – the Native Americans who inhabited the region before the European settlers. Honestly, it feels quite derivative of that story; not only due to the over-reliance on news reports as a crutch, but also because of the imagery of the final battle. Jim Starlin's dialogue is a bit dated in spots, and the look and feel of the book is definitely 80s, but this is a story that has held up well over the years all things considered.

Everyone knows that nerds read Batman because he gets the job done without having a bunch of awesome powers.I particularly enjoyed a number of sequential panels Wrightson does, for instance after Batman’s been shot and he’s trying to get up, instead he literally falls to pieces. Don't Create a Martyr: Blackfire tries to get Batman to kill him in front of the cult for this reason.

Ratface stabs the civilian, but is caught by an attentive beat cop, who the dazed Batman knocks out. Royal Flush Gang Batman Miniature Game New Releases Starters Batman Joker Soldiers of Fortune The Riddler The Penguin Two-Face Mr.But that incident with the woman that gets torn apart, I didn’t read that as Batman justifying it, but rather acknowledging that he was powerless to do anything about it. Once the cult has left the area, Robin jumps in the water to rescue his mentor, but upon finding each other, they terrifyingly realize that they are standing in the bodies of all the people Blackfire killed.

Jason’s first real moments with Batman are snapping him out of his hallucinations, and then he’s used to help spurn him into fighting, and staying in Gotham, and generally pushing him all the way up until Bruce has to face Blackfire on his own. Unlike those stories which took place over a couple of years and ran through multiple titles, Starlin and Wrightson explored these ideas in four issues and it works.

Wrightson and Wray’s artistic efforts are stunning to behold, though, and I can see myself revisiting the story for purely aesthetic reasons.It wasn’t until I was a few dozen pages into the story that I realized Christopher Nolan had used this as the basis for The Dark Knight Rises. Definitely a solid read, in my opinion, though I can’t say you’re missing out on much if you don’t read it.
