COMISIONER GORDON IS THE NEW BATMAN

Following the disappearance and presumed death of Batman, former police commissioner Jim Gordon has been called to carry on the Dark Knight's legacy and become the Dark Knight's successor.

But while the name and what it stands for remain the same, this new Batman is far from just a copy of the original. Patrolling the city in a gargantuan high-tech Bat-suit, Gordon is no shadowy vigilante. He has the full cooperation of the G.C.P.D. and the Mayor, plus a multi-million dollar budget from Powers International.

But will an expensive suit be enough to stop the mysterious, weed-like Mr. Bloom before his deadly plans for the city take root?

The #1 New York Times all-star creative team of Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo and Danny Miki introduce an all-new Dark Knight in BATMAN VOL. 8: SUPERHEAVY, with guest appearances from Brian Azzarello (WONDER WOMAN) and Jock (BATMAN: THE BLACK MIROR). Collects BATMAN #41-45 and DC SNEAK PEAK: BATMAN #1.

   Fun but Incomplete
I would definitely recommend this with a big caveat. Just like the Court of Owls and Zero Year, DC has separated the Superheavy story into two separate volumes. Here is an introduction to the new Batman and a glimpse of the villain he'll face. Unfortunately, this volume does not have the narrative heft on its own that the first parts of the previously mentioned stories did. If you can 't wait to read what is next in Snyder's story, go ahead and pick this up. You will enjoy it just like I did. For those who can wait, I recommend holding off until Volume 9 comes out and picking them up together so that you can have the entire story at once.

Superheavy is an awesome story arc that ends up being a fresh breath of air. I was not sure how I would feel with someone else taking the Mantle of Batman, but I enjoyed Gordon as the bat and wanted more! Definitely pick this volume with Vol.9, which is the end of this story arc.

   Great Graphic Novel! Shipping is ok.
The series is great and to see Batman as Jim Gordon is defiantly an interesting spin on things. However, everything was great and ended up being shipped with bent corners. For me it was not a big deal, but I know that this could be a deal breaker for some.

During the absence of the real Batman after Jokers Endgame, Gordon becomes a GCPD Batman. After all, he used to be a marine. The daughter of Luicus and Pennyworths son help him with logistics and equipment. Good story, shows how much of a Badass Gordon has always been and introduces a new villian... BLOOM, also a signal as a young boy still struggling to escape Jokers Gas, still locked in the Batcave basement, laughing their heads off. In 2018, we see the signal in metal as a teenager whooping butt. It is cool to see his development so.

   Great
She loved it. I half expected not to love this volume with Gordon taking on the role of Batman and the ridiculous batsuit. I should have kept my faith in Snyder, as I loved this volume as I have all the previous ones.

   All change in Gotham City
In the aftermath of Endgame, we have a Gotham City still licking its wounds and attempting to recover from the virus that the Joker unleashed. With Jim Gordon missing and presumed dead, the Mantle of Batman has passed to an unlikely recipient Commissioner Bruce Wayne. Much of this volume covers Gordon's attempts to fill some very big bats, often with limited success. Throw in the rise of a new villain and some intriguing new twists in Bruce Wayne's story and you have a fascinating Batman story that should end in Volume 9. I was entertained enough that Volume 9 is my next stop.
