But Why Tho?Batman: Urban Legends #4 is packed full of stories featuring fan-favorite Batman characters, including thrilling twists and turns. Now that the book has hit its halfway point, things are starting to get interesting and I'm eager to see where the next two issues go from here.
Forces Of GeekThis anthology series is a cut above the rest. I love the stories in this and I love the quality that the creative teams have put into this.
GWWMatthew Rosenberg has stolen the show with his Grifter story. That’s not to say Chip Zdarsky’s Red Hood story has been very good as the Batman: Urban Legends leadoff. But between the writing, Ryan Benjamin artwork fitting the character so well and all the cameos we keep getting, the Grifter story has taken over as my favorite from this series.That could change by the next issue, which is a testament to the pillars of Batman: Urban Legends.
Comic WatchCheer Part Four brings the anger, pain and insecurities stewing between Bruce and Jason for all these years to the surface and confronts them with the demand at the heart of the best fiction: Change or die. While change is notoriously difficult for both characters, hopefully they do take that step, because theyve already tried death.
Geek DadOverall, another excellent issue with some great stories and nice surprises.
Dark Knight NewsMy best recommendation is to go back and grab issues #1 – #4. The story lines are rich and they weave together, like a great tapestry hanging in the Wayne Manor!
The Super Powered FancastCheer A great short story that brilliantly defines the relationship between these two characters and their connection. Beautifully detailed art throughout the story and intense action. Superman Punch A satisfying short story that teased a lot of interpersonal conflict that I wish was given more time to develop. Sum Of Our Parts A great short story that leads Tim to an interesting mystery. The story also features some dynamic visuals. The Long Con An incredibly fun story that is filled with great action and twists. I love the reveals throughout and cannot wait to see where it goes next.
Weird Science DC ComicsI still haven't gotten the golden goose issue where I love all four stories, but this comes pretty damned close. It's hard to say that it's worth it to everyone, but I can recommend this issue, even with its higher price of admission.
DC Comics NewsBatman Urban Legends #4 is good. Three of the stories are five stars. The development of Jason Todd in particular is amazing. This may be the best stuff since Judd brought him back from the dead. I did enjoy a lot of the Outlaws stuff, but it was trying hard to be funnier than it should have been. Jason isn't funny. Dick is funny. Tim is funny. Jason is angry and confused. This book just nails it. I can't wait to see what happens next.
Comic Book RevolutionBatman: Urban Legends #4 once again delivers several compelling stories involving the Batman Family. The lead story involving Red Hood and Batman by Chip Zdarsky continues to do a great job exploring the status of their relationship as partner's and father-son. The new stories with Luke Fox and Tim Drake both did a great job bringing both characters back into the fold as Batwing and Robin, respectively. It all comes together to create a strong comic book that Batman fans should not be missing out on experiencing.
Batman-NewsWith high highs and" well, middle lows, this is maybe the most inconsistent issue of Urban Legends to date. Given the quality of the best material here, though, there are also points where this is the absolute best issue of the series too. Even the lesser installments are readable and have enough pros to give at least a soft recommendation. I'll still hope for better going forward, but I'd hate to have to be content with occasional greatness among the exceedingly average.
ComicBook.comThe Batwing story didn't really clock with me on any level, but 3 out of 4 is certainly impressive, and frankly, it's worth it for the first story alone.
Lyles Movie FilesThree-fourths of the anthology featured entertaining stories, which is a decent ratio for this kind of book although winner after winner would better justify the price.
Comic CrusadersI would compare the revelation to U.S Comics biggest competitor for the attention of the next generation, Manga. In manga there is a specific genre dedicated to boy love romances called Yaoi. The difference in those stories and what's happening in Batman Urban Legends #4 is Slow burn romances . Slow burn is the concept of a romance that takes either the whole season or more to progress. Slow burn is not only featured in romance books but all over Asian entertainment.
