Thwip! Reviews – Detective Comics #952

Part two of the “League of Shadows” event is all about the build up.

What I really enjoyed about this issue was it was all about Shiva, who we haven’t seen in a long, long while – and she is back with a vengeance.

This was a primarily visual issue, with Tynion mainly focusing on establishing the set pieces that will play a bigger role in the future issues of this arc.

So let’s talk about the art, shall we?

Christian Duce’s art is pretty decent (though I kind of wish that that opening sequence of Shiva versus the League of Assassins was actually rendered, rather than just have it shown that they were defeated by her). Her takedown of Batman and Orphan was great though and really shows off her lethality.

Since this is the middle of the arc, not much more can be said, it is solid and intriguing, but nothing much more can be said – a solid three and a half Thwips!
