CBR Review: Batman: The Dark Knight #5

I recently reviewed Batman: The Dark Knight #5 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "The dissonance between concept and execution is one of the most frustrating things to witness. Fantastic ideas rife with possibilities explored in the most mundane and unoriginal fashions are more disappointing than tripe that never aspires to anything more. Batman: The Dark Knight #5 has some genuinely intriguing variations on the Scarecrow’s usual fear toxin and conceptions of fear, but does nothing with them. This is a comic more interested in reliving the same dull fight that we’ve seen far too many times before: Batman vs. Superman, round 713. If anything, this comic is one held back, seemingly, by two heroes fighting for the sake of it. And that’s a shame."
