Batman 2: Justice Buster

We rated this book:


Batman has been a staple of DC Comics since 1939. Starting out with comic book publications, the Batman stories grew. Today, there are several Batman franchises in every form of media, including Japanese Manga. Batman’s popularity increases as more writers and artists interpret and expand his legend.

Batman: Justice Buster Vol. 2, published by DC, is the latest rendering by writer Eiichi Shimizu and artist Tomohiro Shimoguchi. With every new writing, Batman’s story grows and develops. Shimizu’s interpretation is fun, exciting, and a bit different. The basics of the Batman story are there, but with new twists. I am older than most Batman fans (But not as old as the superhero himself). I found the story shocking but interesting. Shimizu definitely adds a fresh dimension to the saga.

Japanese Mangaka Shimoguchi brings his unique touch to the book, infusing it with the dark feel common with Batman comics. Shimoguchi’s illustrations and characters not only capture the essence of Batman but also give this graphic novel an authentic Manga feel. The fight scenes, explosions, and all the cool Batman vehicles add to the overall feel, making it a true Batman experience. Fans and collectors of the shadowy vigilante will love Batman: Justice Buster Vol. 2.
