Having just read "American Vampire" I wasn't sure Scott Snyder had the writing chops to create a Batman series this good, but he proves in "The Black Mirror" that he is easily as talented as the more experienced Batman scribes out there and can create a menacing, taut storyline to boot. Batman tracks the Joker down to a buried underground church in hopes of taking him in, but is ambushed.

Batman is one of the greatest of superhero characters because unlike others he was one of the first heroes to be a true super human. Dick infiltrates the auction where the head of the auction Etienne Guiborg finds out Dick is spying on them and tells the rest of the people to kill him. The subtle conflicts that arise between the denizens of Gotham and Dick and Jim show that there is a miasma of crime and almost "evil" that seem to permeate Gotham and it's dealings. Each issue builds up to the ultimate collision and, just like with Dick, Jim Gordon needs to meet the reflection he sees in the glass and recognize that its potential for evil has gotten stronger and he may not have enough time to stop it.And that conflicts a bit with my position that Batgirl is awesome and bringing Barbara back in the role is the best decision in the whole New 52. Really quite an enjoyable ride through the fantastic scenery as we came face to face with the climax of the Black Mirror. First Scott Snyder helped rescue vampires from the clutches of teen-age girls in his American Vampire series, and now he’s saving Batman from the muddled mess that Grant Morrison and DC had put him in. Commissioner Gordon meets up with Harvey Bullock on a crime where the aviary cages from the Mayor unlocked, and the culprit is Gordon's son and Barbara Gordon's half-brother James Gordon Junior. The Black Mirror is a Batman storyline featuring Dick Grayson, written by Scott Snyder with illustrations by Jock and Francesco Francavilla.

I also loved the relationship shown between Commissioner Jim Gordon and Dick Grayson as Jim Gordon holds the same respect for Dick that he held for Bruce Wayne.

But, after discovering some newer “Batman” comics, I wanted to try out some and one of the “Batman” stories that I had checked out was “Batman: The Black Mirror.
