Kevin Smith’s Batman: The Widening Gyre, is one of the best Batman graphic novels, if not the best, that I have read. I really enjoyed the art, which had a kind of fifties look to it. It even featured some of the villains you never see and some of the older costumes that have changed throughout the years. I enjoyed the story as well. The story revolves around the new hero in town who has been giving Batman a hand. Since Batman is Batman he is cautious about getting too close to the new guy. Also, Batman has fallen for an ex-girlfriend and is now trying to work out being both Batman and Bruce Wayne. The ending is a surprise that I did not see coming. I definitely recommend this one to any Batman or DC comic fans.
