CBR Review: Batman #3

I recently reviewed Batman #3 and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Writer Scott Snyder, to his credit, is following the Batman formula to a degree, with this issue simply representing the most formulaic part of the story: a mysterious threat has revealed itself by trying to kill Bruce Wayne, and Batman follows up using a healthy mix of beatings, detective work and coincidental happenings. What can be done to spice things up and make Batman beating down a gang of thugs before intimidating a man for information yet again? Adding some metal face masks is Snyder's solution, along with some backstory on the gang, adding a little color to Greg Capullo's drawings of Batman making these supposedly hard, scary, professional thugs look like rank amateurs."

You can read the rest HERE! (Or, compare the two reviews CBR has for this issue!)
