    B 70% | Satisfactory Notes The last slow drips and dregs from a stale bottle of weak sauce Lacking vigor it confuses convolution for cleverness

    I am not really sure what I should tell you This did not really work Utterly confusing Too much that does not really mash together was forced together You have Catwoman Scarecrow Owls which really shocked me cause I had no idea why those were there Mad Hatter Two face Black Mask Mr Toxic That was simply too much Tony Daniel should focus on his artwork which is excellent Unfortunately I find his writingstory telling somewhat lacking

    Detective Comics Volume 2 Scare Tactics is an assortment of bad Batman short stories mostly written by Tony S Daniel a guy who can draw right good but cannot write right at all Catwoman steals something for Scarecrow or something – Batman stops her There’s a Night of the Owls crossover where chaos erupts inside Arkham Asylum after the Talons target Dr Arkham – Batman stop them This is followed by a tedious three part story involving a mad scientist cloning himself – Batman stops him Black Mask and Mad Hatter do something – Batman stops them And finally there’s another Bruce Wayne origin set in the Himalayas and the book closes out with a series of short Two Face stories about nothing So yeah the writing is formulaic tedious unimpressive and the stories are almost instantly forgettable – so it goes with Tony Daniel’s Batman comics Still even though it’s obviously heavily influenced by Jim Lee I love his sleek art style which is so damn near perfect for Batman’s look In fact generally it’s impressive how many artists there are contributing pages in this volume and the art looks almost uniformly the same; just goes to show have pervasive Jim Lee’s art style is at DC Except for the Two Face backup art which was just black ink smeared on the page making it hard to discern what was going on the answer nothing worthwhile Pretty pages don’t make for a great book though and I was immensely bored reading this lengthy pointless volume Tony Daniel is just another artist who can’t write – I wouldn’t recommend any Batman books with this dude’s name on The cover made me laugh though – looks like Batman’s taking an almighty shit and he’s barely hanging on

    Visually this is nice and the story didn't stinkbut it's not going to knock you socks offI'm not sure how to classify this one other than to say that it's a decent piece of Batman filler Nothing about the story pissed me off and nothing made me go WowAnd maybe that's not entirely Daniel's faultI mean this title is competing with Snyder's excellent run on Batman so most anything is going to seem meh compared to it right?There's a small portion of the Owls crossover where they attack the Assylum and try to take out Jeremiah Arkham It involves Black Mask which in turn brings the Mad Hatter into the story EhhhhhKudos to Daniel for trying to make Jervis Tetch look like a badass It didn't work But I think he should get an I Participated medal for the effortThen there's another storyline with Mr ToxicSomething something clones something something evil scientistAnd so on The moral of the story?Radiation isn't something you should play around with There's a few one shot issues at the end that don't suck too badlyOne involves a newbie to the Gotham PD who has to guard that flap of Joker's skin overnightAnother is a flashback to Bruce learning some Mind Over Matter kung fu shit from a grumpy old fart who apparently has problems than BruceAnd then there's the What Was Alfred Doing While Bruce Was Kung Fuing? issue This is a fairly thick volume so you're definitely going to get your money's worth out of it if you decide to buyRecommended for Hardcore Batfans only

    Breaking the tried and true concept of the New 52 books being subpar is this volume from Detective Comics Scare Tactics is pretty decentIt shows Batman being of a Detective considering the name of the comic no surprise There is someone who is manipulating people by mind control Batman suspects it is the Black mask but events show that it isn't Who is behind this? There is also another story about someone named Mr Toxic and his plan to destroy GothamTony Daniel manages to focus on the Batman and that is a nice change from the fascination with new C or D list heroes For the most part the stories are fairly well done and the artists are similarly decentOne story IMHO stands far above the rest The Final Lesson showing what Bruce was doing post his parents murder has Bruce training under a famed zen warrior He learns a great many lessons about love and loss It is a great little story and the ending is sublimeAll in all this was a nice change from the piss poor crap that I've run across coming out of DC's publishing house It has the feel of the older stories and focuses on Batman instead of the crappy Bat groupies who seem to have eclipsed the Dark Knight The only story that wasn't all that great was the odd Two Face story It wasn't terrible but Dent's motivations are getting harder to fathom is he still a bad guy?Nice little addition to the batman collection far better than most of the pap masuerading as Batman comics

    To any Batman fan who wishes to read him in the comics medium for the first time ever Please don't bother with this and avoid it at all cost You are not missing out on anything I want you to enjoy your precious reading experiences when it comes to Batman and Tony S Daniel's two collected volumes entitled Faces of Death and Scare Tactics will never be a good place for you start I would only recommend you to check out the first issue which included some information about the Joker That was a fairly acceptable story There is also the issue zero for New 52's Detective Comics which happens to be a part of this collection as well but that's it I would not waste writing a longer review for this one because I uite frankly had no energy let alone affection or love to spare this shite some Daniel has proven himself a great artist; his illustrations for these volumes were superb and enchanting; but he certainly hasn't made up for substance or enjoyment which his stories in said volumes sadly often lack So new reader looking for a prospective Batman comic book to get started with I advise you to take your bearings elsewhere and avoid this massacre of good sense As you embark on your journey to read Batman for the first time there are plenty of better and enduring titles to start with than this oneNOT RECOMMENDED 110DO READ MY BATMAN COMICS REVIEWS AT

    Certainly the lesser New 52 Batman title but still ok to pass the time

    Just disappointing Stupid as hell Tony S Daniel can draw but he sure can't write

  9. David Dalton David Dalton says:

    An okay collection but not as good as the Batman 2011 collections that I have read so far Vols I II III and IV More stories that tie into the Court of Owls and a few other good stories Next up is a Joker collection Endgame

    I like trying to find the good in books even when I don't like them Focusing on the ideas or the interesting moments that are on the right track or something Unfortunately this book is simply unreadable Tony Daniel who I believe got this Batman writing job based solely on his ability to draw Batman in Grant Morrison's Batman RIP two skills that are absolutely not the same just cannot string a story together His structure is borderline unfollowable his mysteries proceed with no sense of revelation or surprise and his broader premises regarding villains and plot are boring at best extremely overdone at worst And to make matters worse I think whatever time he spent writing this ended up taking away from his time pencilling because his art isn't even worth the price of admission not to mention the fact that sometimes he doesn't even do the pencils at allThis is just a true waste of time to read It adds nothing to the greater Batman stories at play in the New 52 universe and actively detracts from the character and the suspense building in other Batman series I would go so far as to actively recommend NOT reading this if you're a Batman fan of any sort I'm glad to see a new creative team is taking over Detective Comics in volume 3 otherwise I would've stopped here
