Birth of The Bat by Josh Simmons. $10. Magazine size, 20 pages, black and white, published by Le Mansion Press.

Making Batman comics is the art cartoonists hard won right, whether they are an experiment or truly stellar works of art. This one is in the latter category by a longshot. Simmons gets at something about the Batman archetype that is both funny and incredibly drawn by Keck. Could be be a regular issue of Elseworlds Batman, albeit a particularly amazing one. Grab this beauty of a comic!
