Paperback (edit)
Review Batman meets HP Lovecraft in this noir set in the 1920s. Bruce Wayne has been away from Gotham City for twenty years after the death of his parents and the warning he received after that. Now he's back after searching for a lost expedition and things get appropriately bizarre.

I really enjoyed this. There are few panels that I thought looked weird but, all in all, the whole thing is weird. Awesome though. If you like Lovecraft and Batman both you'll be curious to check this out. It's interesting to see how certain characters are rendered in this world.

An enjoyable alternate take of Batman that incorporates some Lovecraftian mythology. I was surprised at how well they fit together actually - but this series seemed unnaturally compressed. Like the author was constrained to show as many Batman characters as possible in a very short run. It was like - "Oh, there's that person...And they're gone."

An interesting retelling of the Batman story, in an alternate history where the Wayne mansion is located in Lovecraft country...

Violence: Supernatural, Eldritch horror and its attendant grossness. Especially memorable is the fate of Harvey Dent. Yeesh.
