This is good. In fact, it's very good. It's a huge Gothic melodrama - which is a good thing. It's very gory. The art fits the story like a glove. But don't read it unless you've read the first two books in the trilogy (Red Rain and Bloodstorm). You'll be able to understand Crimson Mist without having read them, but I doubt you'll fully appreciate it. If you have read the first two I hope that saying it's more of the same will persuade you to read it as soon as possible. I think it's probably the best of the trilogy, but that could be because it's the freshest in my mind. It's always nice when you spend a lot of money on a book to get nice packaging, and this was no disappointment. A good cover, which indicates exactly what the story is going to be like. The paper is very glossy and I don't think this is going to fall apart in a hurry. Little things, like the small gold images on the pages and the skull on the front cover indicate that care has been taken over this. It is...
For fans of the vampire Batman series, Crimson Mist won't disappoint. CM picks up where Bloodstorm left off, with Batman staked and agonizing in vampire limbo. Unfortunately for Alfred the Butler and Commissioner Gordon, a new group of criminals is besieging Gotham, and only the undead Dark Knight can stop them. Can Batman defeat Two-Face and Killer Croc without becoming a worse monster in the process? Doug Moench takes you on a journey into the remnants of Bruce Wayne's soul, with stunning artwork from Kelley Jones that can't be ignored. The best Elseworld novel I've read yet!
Don't get me wrong, Batman as a vampire is the most compelling concept I've come across in comic-land. The first two books were so cool and intense that years later I still read it with eyes intent on the page. I can't say for others, but for me it speaks of the heart's deep inner urges, longings, appetites, and pent-up rage and regrets. Bloodstorm was, for me, the penultimate description of the human condition. Only Christie Golden's book, "Vampire of the Mists," can touch what the creators have done in this trilogy. Having said that, I must admit that the third installment here carries two basic flaws: First of all, it loses touch with what makes Batman a living, pulsing character. I can't speak for others, but I can't identify with an unleashed, hell-bent-for-slaughter-and-mayhem Batman pushed past an insanity even the Joker never had. This Batman kills without compunction, guilt, recrimination, or reserve. He's ten times worse than any criminal he...
