Batman: the Imposter is a thrilling three-book compilation that shows the audience the early days of the caped crusader. It was first released last year as a limited-run series, but now all issues can be bought in one compilation. The world’s greatest detective had to start somewhere before he became the human who could beat titans. Andrea Sorrentino‘s art style captures the essence of Mattson Tomlin’s writing. They have refreshing chemistry when narrating this dark and gritty tale. Even though this comic is not related to the Fear the Batman film, they capture the same mood that will make the bibliophile feel they are related even if they are not.
DC Comics released a trailer to hype you to buy a copy of this Black Label book.
Batman: The Imposter Trailer
In this Graphic Novel, Bruce Wayne is just a few months into his career as Batman. As days went by, he has been a fast learner because he has developed as a crime fighter. Gotham experienced some improvement since this masked Vigilante started interrupting all the criminal activity. It is not a perfect Utopia, but his meddling gives people a glimmer of hope that will come to this crime-infested city.
Most fans see BTAS as Dark, but this misadventure is more mature and adult-oriented. Bruce Wayne’s financial resources are helpful for him to pursue this path, but his intellect is still what helped him succeed by far. Batman’s crime-fighting made him some foes who wanted to finish him because he is a nuisance for their business.
Batman: The Imposter also explores Bruce’s love-hate relationship with law enforcement. Yes, he helps them solve crimes, but he is also a Vigilante and putting Justice through his hands is far from legal. It is provocative and intriguing because the reader will see Batman differently. A Hardcover version of this graphic novel will be released this February 22 2022.
