In Third Person Comic Book Show: New 52 Batman

I share my thoughts on why Snyder and Capullo’s run so far is the best place to start reading modern Batman while briefly discussing each of their main story arcs so far.

His oldest brother just spent 7,000 years digging himself out of a hole in order to rule Olympus and the baby is one more obstacle in the way of him seizing the throne.
