    Whoah Trevor McCarthy back doing art for Batman again. They are really getting the A-List art team for Eternal.

    Yay for McCarthy work! Looks solid and I'm glad he's working on another more supernatural like book.

    Also Gentleman Ghost. They are just throwing all sorts of villains and characters in this comic.

    The start of Batwing's part of the story. Should be interesting--haven't really gotten into the Luke Fox stuff because I'm still a little sore about taking the mantle from David, but hopefully this book will get me to like Luke a bit more.

    I'm still sore about that too but as you said maybe this will get me to like Luke despite that mess. Stranger things have happened. I'm also not a fan of Trevor McCarthy's artistic style either but I think it fits the more supernatural angle of this section so there is that. Still Batman Eternal has be great so far and everyone seems to be bringing their A-games to the table so although this issue is going to have two strikes against it for me going in maybe they will be overshadowed by the actual story being told.
    Just once, I want it to be Killer Croc, okay? Just once. Just at the end, guy rips off a mask, and there he is in all his scaled glory. And Killer Croc's all like, "Ha, ha, ha, didn't think it'd be me, right?" " Because of my, y'know snout, which obviously is not mask-efficient." Agent 37

    Yaha! Nth Metal brass knuckle reference. So much Brave and Bold slipping in. A little Young Justice "Robin has a hologram bracelet" this week, a little B&B "Batman punches Gentleman Ghost with Nth Metal knuckles" the next.

    Fantastic.

    Love the fact this book gives a supernatural story.

    I love the way Batman just brushes past the whole "ghost" thing.

    And it's cool to see Doctor Phosphorous back in all his glory.

    Got to love a Gentleman Ghost appearance. And the way Bruce matter of factly tells Luke that you just have to get over not believing in those things in Gotham. Of course Nth metal neutralizes those things - c'mon Luke! I really like the way they've introduced the supernatural element here - first Jim Corrigan shows up and then Tim tells Bruce in #5 that something is broken - implying the break-up of the Bat-family and the "deaths" of Dick and Damian have lifted a lid on the dark forces under Gotham. It really shows Snyder's horror roots and the influence Stephen King has had on him (hat tip Dzetoun who says it more eloquently than I do).

    I'm not always the biggest fan of Fawkes, but this dialoguing "There are creatures who slip through the cracks of SENSE and REASON...and draw strength from denial. You do NOT want to give them that strength" is awesome

    I still really like Ghosts's redesign. He looks cool.

    I hate the Ghost's new design. Takes everything out of what the character was...sad really.
