CBR Review: Batman: Odyssey #4

I recently reviewed Batman: Odyssey #4 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "There’s a purity to Batman: Odyssey as Neal Adams embraces the over-the-top melodrama of the superhero comic, piling complication upon complication on Batman, and making every scene play out like a life or death situation with overreactions and hammy ‘acting.’ Adams has a strong, clear idea of what his interpretation of Batman is and he embraces it completely. It may not be to everyone’s taste, but it’s laudable that Adams is so willing to push the character into territory long forgotten and unseen in the current Bat-titles. His Batman is emotional, not the cold intellect usually depicted, and it’s a refreshing take on a character that is so rooted in emotional pain and anguish."
