Batman 49 review
For the last 9 months Jim Gordon has acted as Batman while an amnesic Bruce Wayne is living a normal life.

Bruce came to a realization at the end of the issue – the realization that Gotham City needs the real Batman. This review will contain spoilers, but the ending isn’t much of a surprise once you start reading this comic anyway.

Synder has additionally acted as a leader in Batman Eternal and Batman & Robin Eternal…
