This week we have one issue that begins a story and another issue that ends a story. These two issues are: Batman #1 and Poison Ivy, a Cycle of Life and Death #6.
After learning that missiles have been stolen from a military stock pile in Gotham, Batman has to save a plane from crashing in Batman #1. This issue is an emotional issue due to the fact that it is hinted that Batman may die. I am going to talk about the ending because a lot of people who read comics already knew the ending before this issue came out. Batman meets two new heroes, Gotham and Gotham Girl. I’ve got to say that I hope that their character arc is more interesting than their names.
In the final issue of Poison Ivy, a Cycle of Life and Death, Poison Ivy and her family have to fight for their lives with the aid of Swamp Thing. I loved the confusion of this story. It wraps up everything and shows potential new stories for the new characters that this mini-series has introduced.
