Sigh… Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato’s main Anarky story is boring and pointless. Anarky wants something, there’s a dreary mystery involving Mad Hatter, and you know Batman’s gonna stop them both, which is always a given, but he doesn’t do it in an interesting way. And speaking of predictable, you know instantly who Anarky is beneath the mask - like a guest star on an episode of Columbo, the villain’s the important new character who’s just appearing in this story. A two-part story called Terminal written by Benjamin Percy and drawn by John Paul Leon is also included where a plane full of dead people infected by a lethal virus crashes into Gotham Airport. It’s another blah story where Batman goes through the motions to save the day. Leon’s heavy ink style was nice though. The volume closes out with an awful Endgame tie-in featuring We Are Robin and an even worse Future’s End issue where Calendar Man’s holding Gotham hostage somehow and Batman effectively kills Riddler by proxy! I like Manapul’s art - he draws a mean Batman - and Buccellato’s colours are great too but their writing on this one was really sub-par. Detective Comics, Volume 7: Anarky is definitely worth skipping, even for Batman fans.

    I received this from Edelweiss and DC Comics in exchange for an honest review. This book compiled several story arcs, and was hit-and-miss. Batman is supposed to be the World's Greatest Detective, but he didn't do much detecting at all in this book. In the first arc, "Terminal", Batman and the Gotham International Airport security chief deal with a deadly biological attack. This one had a lot of potential, the artwork was perfectly dark, and it ultimately just fizzled out.

In the first arc, "Terminal", Batman and the Gotham International Airport security chief deal with a deadly biological attack. This one had a lot of potential, the artwork was perfectly dark, and it ultimately just fizzled out. In tracking leads, Batman called Grayson (in Germany), who just happened to be interrogating someone with information about the perpetrator Batman is tracking. I can suspend belief when reading comic books, but this was too much, and the story just sort of ended without much happening. Nothing at all about the biological agent, but at least the bad guy was caught. The second arc, "Anarky", also had some potential and should have been a lot longer. Mad Hatter makes an appearance, and is actually vital to the storyline, but again, there was very little detecting by Batman. Everything just sort of falls into place, and he figures everything out without any explanation of how he ended up capturing the bad guy. The final two stories felt like extras that had nothing to do with the theme of "anarchy" in Gotham City. "Endgame" was already included in the first Batwoman TPB, but at least it was about one of the minor characters from the "Anarky" arc. I couldn't figure out the tie with "Futures End: Anniversary", but it felt like an up-sell, with DC marketers pushing the Futures End imprint. No thanks.

    Batman is more a mortal hero in some of these tales. We get some Mad Hatter focuses which is nice but this novel throws in too many stories which dilutes the flow. OVERALL GRADE: B minus to B.

    3 and a half stars * Overall a good read. The first story was the best and honestly most scary, terrorism and such. The anarky storyline was okay and the final two issues were from two different crossovers, so it felt a little thrown together. I enjoyed this more than the previous volume, Some good stories in here. Solid Batman book. I received an advanced copy of this from NetGalley.com and the publisher

    Four stories are collected in this volume. DETECTIVE COMICS #35-36 is a two part story called Terminal. I like this story the best of those in this book. It takes place in the Gotham Airport Terminal as a terrorist unleashes a biological weapon and the whole place is put on lockdown. The art in this story is dark, grim, and depressing looking; it really lends itself well to the story being told and adds to the atmosphere.

My favorite character Dick Grayson also has a part in this too, as he helps Batman from afar. It could have almost have taken place at any point in Batman history. DETECTIVE COMICS #37-40 reprints the main story called Anarky. It has phonalmal art attached to it and really dynamic layouts. The beginning of this story was very interesting and started out with Batman fighting the Mad Hatter, where he discovers the remains of a bunch of young children. Now what does the Mad Hatter have to do with Anarky you might be asking yourself, well I was anyway. That's pretty much what this story is about. I thought this story was good but it did lack a little in the suspense department for me. Lonnie Machin aka Moneyspider is in this, as well as Harvey Bullock and his current partner. DETECTIVE COMICS: ENDGAME #1 -- This is the weakest part of the collection. It features Lonnie Machin aka Moneyspider, the kid that was in the Anarky story and a bunch of cameo appearances by different Batman Family members. I'm not even sure what this is the endgame for. Except that a bunch of people have been infected with Joker gas and Lonnie is trying to get across the city to his mother. It's an ok, but absolutely skippable story. AND DETECTIVE COMICS: FUTURES END #1 -- Another of these time skip forward stories with future Batman teaming up with the Riddler to go up against Calander Man. The end of this was sort of evil and I admit I laughed. Extended Review with Pictures: https://stabbingstardust.wordpress.co...

There's also an annual included here which introduces the Calendar Man into the New 52, and whilst it's a different take on the character, it's not particularly new or exciting - see Tom King and Mikel Janin's take in Batman: Rebirth for a better one. Still, lovely artwork throughout - Manapul's painted panels and innovative layouts are always a surefire hit with me.

    It's been a while since I've read Detective Comics, so I was excited to get back into them. And it's fascinating that the current villain is Anarky! But wait - is that Dick Grayson torturing someone? I know he's a spy now, but WTF? I guess I'll get more when I read Grayson. The first story in the book was a standalone. And an interesting one. It went kind of fast - I was expecting it go longer.

I thought the two-page spreads were especially well done. This was an interesting story. With Anarky and a little bit of background to the Mad Hatter. This was followed up by Detective Comics: Endgame #1, which works okay as a one-shot, but it was annoying to find out that this played out in a larger story in other comics. Why would you put one piece of a story in a collections like this? Is this supposed to be like one of those action figure sets where each individual figure has a piece of an additional figure and you have to buy several of them to get the entire additional figure? And then they did the same thing with Detective Comics: Futures End #1. I thought this was good as a standalone story, too. But I was frustrated to find out that there is a whole epic multi-part story of which this is only one small part. As a whole, I liked reading it. But sticking 2 partial stories in here was a bit of a let-down. Thanks to NetGalley and DC Comics for a copy in return for an honest review.

    Alright this how my list goes for Batman creative teams: Scott Synder & Greg Capullo are clearly number one, then Peter Tomasi & Patrick Gleeson at second and I am now adding Francis Manapul & Brian Buccellato. The last volume by the latter team was pretty good. What always captures me with this team is how great the quality is concerning the artwork. This volume has beautifully drawn panels. The action is staged flawlessly. I love the mood I get when I read the stories by this team.

The first half of this collection begins with a terrorist biological outbreak at Gotham airport. Batman with the help of airport security must quickly find the terrorist and cure himself from the killer infection spreading throughout the airport. This story definitely kept me on the edge of my seat. The next issues is a sweeping mystery of a killer mayhem inducing criminal known as Anarky. Batman and Bullock must stop Anarky from sending Gotham city into chaos and riots. This mystery had a lot of tewist and turns and artwork was simply amazing. The back end issues Are more like crossovers one from the Endgame story arc and the other a short Future's End tale. The tales were both quite enjoyable. So in closing this was a thoroughly enjoyable Batman collection. Definitely worth a read.

    3.5 Stars So this volume started out with a story involving a terrorist plot based around a virus that ages people prematurely. Not bad, but a lot was left unexplained. The main story was the introduction of New 52 Anarky. Very different from the original Anarky and not who'd you'd expect. This story also features the more vicious Mad Hatter. Overall not bad, the art was okay but wasn't my personal favorite. Overall a solid Batman arc but not one near the top of the chain.

The book opens with a two-part story dealing with a plane crashing into Gotham Terminal. With everyone on board in a state of rapid decomposition, a global terrorist revels himself as the mastermind of an organic virus that will soon spread across the city. As Batman battles the madman, he must also locate the antidote for the virus before it consumes Gotham. The meat of the collection begins with an assault on Wayne Tower that effectively wipes out the city's database. Encouraging citizens to now chose their own path, the mysterious Anarky distributes copies of his golden mask to Gotham's doorsteps. While the city begins to erupt in chaos, the Dark Knight teams with Harvey Bullock to discern the identity of Anarky, his twisted connection to the Mad Hatter, and the bodies of five young orphan children. The book concluded with two one-shot issues; the first is an Endgame tie-in that highlights the teenaged children who would go on to star in the We Are Robin series, while the second is a Futures' End look at Batman and Riddler teaming up to stop Calendar Man's threatened blackout. Variant covers close out the tome, including the Flash anniversary, the Lego version, and the Darwyn Cooke design to name a few. Overall, this Detective Comics volume does attempt to put the focus on the detective work of Batman, but gets too caught up in its storytelling plots to adequately conclude each adventure. The new Anarky is also somewhat unnecessary, as the classic version is hinted at taking up the identity sometime down the road. Taken as a whole, the Anarky collection is a chaotic run that lives up to it title.

    This volume contains 4 separate stories. The first by Benjamin Percy and John Paul Leon. The story was pretty good and different for a Batman story. However, I didn't care for Dick Grayson's characterization as they show him torturing a captive by pulling out their teeth with a pair of pliers. I'm really surprised that made it past the editors. Maybe they didn't notice because John Paul Leon's dark, muddy artwork makes it difficult to make out any details in a panel. The main story featured a new This volume contains 4 separate stories.

Maybe they didn't notice because John Paul Leon's dark, muddy artwork makes it difficult to make out any details in a panel. The main story featured a new Anarchy by the regular creative team of Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato. I'm enjoying their run. However I'm not a fan of how Manapul's art is developing. He's such a great artist and I hate how he's roughing up his art with all these splatter marks in this story. Their run reminds me of a 70's cop TV show for some reason. The one issue Endgame tie-in should have been collected in Batman: Endgame or Joker: Endgame instead. It's a throwaway story about the original Anarchy trying to get across town to save his mom. The last issue is the Future's End tie-in. I hate these issues. It was a dumb idea that's hopefully never going to happen. With the DCYou initiative they've pretty much thrown out all editing and continuity anyway. I received this graphic novel through NetGalley's Read and Review Program.

    I've got to say I'm glad I read this after I did my plane trips, because the first couple collected issues here would have upped my stress levels with the amount of time spent in airports. The art and story build up surprisingly good tension as a plan full of dead lands and sparks a quarantine at Gotham Airport, with Batman not immune. I was very pleasantly surprised with these issues. The main story, focusing on Anarky, wasn't quite as interesting.

The main story, focusing on Anarky, wasn't quite as interesting. Jettisoning most of Anarky's Pre-52 history (with a minor nod), it instead follows a new Anarky who rides the coattails of Anonymous to strike a blow in Gotham. The twist is a bit predictable (and honestly, Batman should have figured it out right away), but there are still some tense moments and decent action sequences. And the final issue, which follows up on a tangential character, offers a new dimension for the series to explore. Overall, a better than expected collection, although I was a little disappointed that Anarky strays from his previous roots.

    This had a chance to be an all time great Batman story. There is a cliff hanger at the end of issue 37 that had the explored it would have taken the best of Law & Order's "ripped from the headlines" style of storytelling and also examined the idea of vigilante justice in the cell phone camera era.

A very good one mind you but still this could have been so much more that I can't help but be disappointed.

    3.5 Stars. The majority of this novel is a straightforward 'Batman as detective' story against Anarky. This iteration of Anarky is a orphan who was tormented as a youth by fellow orphanage kid Jervis Tetch, aka Mad Hatter. Very satisfying to have the complete story wrapped up in one Volume. The first two stories are a race against time for Batman to figure out a virus epidemic that has broken out at an airport. Very well written and fast paced.

    This is my first Detective book and I wasn't disappointed. Never been a huge fan of Batman (despite loving the villains and women surrounding him), but I really liked this format. The stories flowed better than the typical Batman/Villain story-lines. When you don't think Batman's the shit, it's nice to read about him being a team player. Also, HARVEY.

    A big improvement on the previous volume. Terminal is a really strong opening that actually left me wanting more and the Anarky story was more interesting than I expected heading into it. The final story in the collection was also worthwhile and had a cool conclusion.

    I was selected to receive this book in a Goodreads giveaway, and its not bad. Manapul does a good job overall with Anarchy but the older 1990's character was much better in appearance and motives. Batman and Anarchy make for good adversaries but this volume doesnt stand out as a must read.

    Sometimes, Detective Comics gets so good it rivals the main Batman series. In the New 52, I believe this has been the case from Volume 4 onwards, and with Manapul at the wheel, this trend shows no signs of stopping.

    I like that there was some mystery to this book, because that has been sorely lacking in Batman books lately. That being said, there was an excess amount of violence and blood that seriously detracted from the story.

    This is book is simply lovely. Francis Manpul's paneling is some of the best work I have seen. I have become such a fan of his work since his run on The New 52 Flash. I will pretty much read anything he works on from now on.

This time around Gotham City is faced with a V for Vendetta wannabe, Anarky; and I don't mean just the obvious similarities like the white mask and the anarchistic motivation. His plan is almost the same as the plot of V for Vendetta. Lets see: Bombings of major landmarks in the city? CHECK Is it a cover up for personal revenge, or if I may I say so, a vendetta? CHECK The clever detective finding his way to a place of origin of the anarchist's trauma? CHECK Everybody in the city receives the anarchist mask in a box? CHECK Add a domino sequence and a shaved headed woman in the rain and we would have a bingo! Not only the plot is a copy paste of something far superior, but the mystery of this volume does not work either. Gotham faces a new masked villain and at the same we are introduced to a new moderately important secondary character. I wonder who is hiding under that mask... It is not to say that this story does not have any merits. The storyline with  the Mad Hatter is really creepy. It fits the gothic feel of Batman mythos but also makes it more realistic; he is still a guy obsessed with Alice in Wonderland and mind controlling headwear but he is also disturbed and disturbing pedophile and a psychopath. The way he is dealt with left me unsatisfied, but I guess it is just another sign of my superhero fatigue. I am happy to say that Brian Bucellato's artwork is still fantastic.  The colorists on this book bring so much life to Batman's world, that I am afraid to pick up any other Dark Knight book knowing well that it will be once again dark and gloomy. But that's just half of this volume! There are two tie-ins for DC events, but they are meh at best. The real treat is at the beginning of this book. The two issues long storyline called The Terminal. It is written by Ben Percy and drawn by John Paul Leon. The premise is simple: a biological attack by an eco-terrorist forces police to quarantine Gotham airport. Batman has only few hours to find the source of the spreading epidemic, the man who orchestrated it and the cure. Leon's art is simple, without detailed characters and some fun original panels, it reminded me of David Aja's work on Hawkeye and believe me it is a big compliment coming form me. The colors are subdued, the panels operate mostly on grays, blacks and various oranges and yellows bringing to mind hazmat suits and the warning signs. A fitting choice that adds to a feel of urgency and danger of the story; after all yellow and orange and the colors which nature uses to warn us about toxins. On top of all this goodness we have a very sweet buddy cop partnership of Batman and the head of airport security and a kick-ass Dick Grayson cameo. You know what? Skip the volume and buy just these two issues. VERDICT Two out of five The Terminals (just for The Terminal).

If the creators toned it down to just a small group of people like fifty, maybe and left the story the same, it would be much more believable. Except it wouldn't. If the guy has a beef with Mad Hatter, it wouldn't be much of a problem to create a fatal accident when he's in Arkham yet again.

    The thing I am rapidly coming to love about the Detective Comics series is that they are basically a TV show in print form. Each comic is an episode, with a clear story arc, goodies, baddies, drama, tension, great dialogue and brilliant pacing. And like any good TV show, you can't wait for the next episode. The beauty here, of course, being that you don't have to. You just turn a page and there it is. DC put a lot of effort and some thought into the massive New 52 reboot bonanza.

Each comic is an episode, with a clear story arc, goodies, baddies, drama, tension, great dialogue and brilliant pacing. And like any good TV show, you can't wait for the next episode. The beauty here, of course, being that you don't have to. You just turn a page and there it is. DC put a lot of effort and some thought into the massive New 52 reboot bonanza. Detective Comics is one of the real highlights and is as good now as when it started.

    An interesting collection of stories. I got to say it was cool having Batman against a criminal armed with a biological weapon that rapidly ages. Pretty intense and had some tragedy but also some glory. Truly makes one appreciate life. The Anarky villain was a pretty cool story to say the least as well, interesting that it all lead to the Mad Hatter being both responsible and key in saving the day. That last bit with the future was a bit strange but okay I guess. B-
