Batman Eternal

Batman Eternal ran as a weekly publication at DC from 2014-2015, lasting 52 issues and spanning as much Bat-continuity as the creative team could get their hands on. Scott Snyder ran the yearlong storyline as a “showrunner”, with the majority of issues handled by James Tynion IV, Kyle Higgins, John Layman, Ray Fawkes and Tim Seeley. Artists included Ian Bertram, Guillem March, and DC’s house-style favourite, Jason Fabok. The storyline sees a mysterious foe sending out cards which say “Gotham falls tonight – have some fun” to a bunch of major DC villains, who proceed to cause chaos which Batman and his allies can barely manage to contain.

Shelfdust recapped the entire event, one issue at a time, and to be honest taking a lot longer than a year to do it. Below you can find links to every single issue, as recapped by Steve, and you can witness his mind quickly rot as the series drags on. Batman Eternal isn’t bad, particularly – it’s not great – but this project really showed just how easy it is for there to be too much Batman. Enjoy!
