Batman #17 Review

The not so long awaited finale review  to the "Death of the Family" storyline!
Sorry it took me 2 days to get this review up.

In case you haven't read all the other reviews. The finale to the great "Death of the Family" arc was awesome one indeed. I'm going to try and not give away to many spoilers but in the issue itself it is revealed why Batman won't kill the Joker, even though he could just take him out and easily be disciplined enough to never kill anyone else ever again, it is also explains Joker's true relationship to Batman and possibly change the way readers will see the two enemies forever.

The one complaint people have with the comic is that it doesn't have any real major fight scenes and that's a good thing in my mind that there isn't any. The Joker has spent the entire storyline messing with the Bat-Family, harassing them on more of a mental level than a physical one so it makes sense that the final issue spends the majority of the time explaining why.

I give it a 10 out of 10. When I started reviewing Batman I was doing it solely for this storyline but now I'll probably start reading and reviewing the series on a regular basis now. I also might read the other Bat-Family storylines just to see what happens in the "Death of the Family"aftermath.
