Batman Confidential #20 Review

BATMAN CONFIDENTIAL #20
Written by Fabian Nicieza
Art by Kevin Maguire

Okay, it's official, DC needs to put Fabian and Maguire on Batman Confidential permanently. Even with how much I enjoyed the first several issues of this arc, this issue still managed to top the best of those and I can see this arc being in contention for some kind of award at the end of the year, even if I have to make up one to contain how awesome this storyline has been.

Aspiring artists, take note of Maguire's work here. I swear, this issue alone has every possible human expression you could ever need perfectly depicted and each one helps make Fabian's tight script and hilarious dialogue pop from the page.

It seems the addition of Batman to this Catwoman / Batgirl teamup has only served to continue the feud these girls have with each other, this time adding their relationships with and currying of favour with Batman to the mix.

This issue also saw the introduction of one of Batman's rogues gallery, the Riddler, as the Russian's cryptographer who is being paid to transcribe Gordan's secret notebook, which has case files and dirt on the Russian's operations. It was a great use of the Riddler and didn't come off as forced either.

Verdict - Must Read. With Fabian and Maguire at the helm, Batman Confidential is the best Batman book on the market right now and it's both easily accessible and amazingly entertaining at the same time.
