The Dark Knight Invades the Penguin's Nest

In the aftermath of the Dark Knight's run-in with a now-faceless Joker, he must face the Penguin on the villain's home turf. As Batman chases down the Penguin's associates, the criminal underworld and all of Gotham are terrified. Nobody knows who the Caped Crusader's next victim* will be. Frankly, I'd be scared of a guy who dresses up as a bat every night too.

As both the writer and artist of the series to date, Tony Daniel has been consistently top-notch. The story has been gripping and twisted. The artwork is simply hypnotic. There is both a grittiness and detail that reaches the top-tier. Detective Comics has long been a favoured title and the reboot has only added to my liking of it. With all of the twists, turns, tragedy and climax, Daniels' run on Detective Comics is poised to cement itself as the defining title of the DCnU. Daniels warns a 9.8 out of 10.
