After the dreadful Batman #1, it was my hope that things would get better with Batman #2. The good news is that it did get better. The bad news is that it was barely better than the first issue. As a matter of fact, it's like saying Weekend at Bernies 2 is better than the first Weekend at Bernies movie.
Note: I read Batman #1 and immediately wrote it's review, before reading Batman #2, which allowed me to stay objective and review them seperately.
We start out with one of those present day images, where Bruce Wayne (not Batman) is sent flying out the window of a high rise building. As he falls towards his death, we flash back to 24 hours earlier. You know it's going to be a snooze fest when they have to rely on that.
Back in the past, we find a group of kidnappers trying to get away in a helicopter. The helicopter is damages so it can't go very fast, so what do the bonehead villains do? They hover 10-feet and follow a set of railroad tracks. What? Really? You're in the city trying to get away in a helicopter, and so you decide to fly at ground level? Really?
Well, unfortunately for the robbers, Batman is hot on their trails. Thanks to his Bat-motorcycle, Batman is able to break all the laws of physics and zoom on smoothly on the railroad tracks. Note that I didn't say the rails, I said the tracks. Seriously, what motorcycle can possibly do that?
Needless to say, this pointless distraction to the main story lasts a measly 3 pages, but it's enough to already doubt that issue 2 is going to be any better than issue 1.
