Today I’m back with yet another not so scary review. Recently a graphic novel based on one of the books in a book series by DC Ink came out and of course I had to pick it up and read it. Don’t worry I’ll definitely be reading the actual book that this graphic novel is based on as well, just not right now. This review is going to be on Batman: Nightwalker adapted by Stuart Moore.
In this graphic novel of Batman, we find Bruce Wayne just on the cusp of his 18th birthday and learning the real ramifications of all that his parents fortune has given him the moment he turns of age. We also see the troubles of Bruce is high school dealing with bullies and people that would be his friends and not be his real friends. In this novel, Gotham is dealing with the problem of a gang of individuals called the Nightwalkers, who are raiding the homes of the rich, killing them and talking all their wealth. Bruce after an attempt to bring one of the Nightwalkers to justice on his own finds himself doing community service as his punishment from the Gotham City Police Department. This brings Bruce head to head with Madeline Wallace, the most recent Nightwalker to be captured by the police department. Bruce develops a crush on Madeline and is determined to figure out a way to save her and unravel her secrets.
I won’t spoil the ending of the book, but I would definitely recommend this book to you. I found this book fascinating and would love to read more about the Bruce Wayne, Madeline Wallace romance if it ever happens. In addition to that I love that we get to see Harvey Dent before he becomes TwoFaced and in a teenage form as well as other people that will only begin to start to play a bigger role in Bruce’s life as his story evolves.
