'All-Star Batman, Volume 1: My Own Worst Enemy' by Scott Snyder may not be much like other Batman stories I've read, but it's an absolute guilty pleasure.
Batman has a chance to cure Two-Face once and for all, so they are on a road trip together. The Harvey Dent side wants this. The Two Face side wants to fight it, so it has arranged a reward for the person who can stop Batman and kill him. If they don't kill Batman, then Two Face will spill the secrets he knows about them. All of them.
The story weaves back and forth in time, and the miles are counted down as they go. It's an adrenaline fueled trip that would probably make an awesome movie, like the weirdest buddy picture ever. And we do find out the history that Harvey and Bruce Wayne have together.
The writing is great. The art is also great. The plot is mostly breakneck, and I just really, really liked this one.
I received a review copy of this graphic novel from DC Entertainment and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for allowing me to review this graphic novel.
