CBR Review: Detective Comics #871

I recently reviewed Detective Comics #871 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "While there is a mystery that’s investigated here surrounding a child that got his hands on the serum that transformed Killer Croc, that mystery allows Snyder to establish the relationship between Commissioner Gordon and Dick, both as Batman and as one of the sons of Bruce Wayne. Dick doesn’t feel at home yet in the penthouse, stepping into the role that Bruce once fulfilled. Even with Bruce’s return and approval, it doesn’t feel right yet, and that’s an interesting approach to the character. The difference between Dick in and out of the cowl is stark. When he’s actually Batman, you wouldn’t know that he doesn’t feel comfortable, Snyder telling us more about the character and how seriously he takes his job."
