‘Batman: One Dark Knight‘ is written and drawn by Jock, who is a highly sought-after comic book artist. The three-part miniseries is part of the DC Comics Black Label.
Batman is tailing a prison transfer of a villain known as EMP, who can disable electronic devices. The head of the Gotham City Prison Bureau has authorized EMP to be moved from Arkham Asylum to Blackgate Prison, against the wishes of Commissioner Gordon. As the transfer takes place, Batman keeps an eye on the transfer, but a gang of thugs wants to unleash EMP and after sabotaging the escort, EMP gets lost in Gotham and ignites. Batman finds himself alone in Gotham City in the middle of the blackout with his devices disabled and he has to make his way to Blackgate on his own.
Jock handles the writing and artwork for this first issue and I have to admit, this one impresses me. The story gears up to put Batman back to the basics and it shows. Without his equipment, how will he handle getting EMP to Blackgate with an army of gangs gunning for him? I enjoyed this first issue a great deal as it did not preach at me or try to downgrade Batman, it just presents a good story that I cannot wait to find out what happens next.
