'Batman: The Deal' - The Greatest Indy Fan Fic Batman Story I Have Ever Read!!!!


Batman has always been my favorite character to read when it comes to comics. It is not even close. While I am very protective over my favorite character and how he is portrayed in the pages of his books, I am always open to seeing a different spin on the Dark Knight... especially if they can add something new to the mythos. Writer Gerardo Preciado and artist Daniel Bayliss have decided to do just that with Batman: The Deal. A Batman work that comes WITHOUT permission of DC Comics and obviously does not take place within typical DC Comics canon, this story delves deep into the dark, twisted relationship between Batman and the Joker. Since this is an un-authorized book, it allows Preciado & Bayless license to take the characters and stories to dark places... the darkest places I have ever seen the World's Greatest Detective go. I was floored by the visuals and the story got my blood pumping in a way that hasn't happened in a long, long time. I hope this opens the eyes of the brass over at DC Comics in relation to the talent of these guys... and if not them, then how about some of the other companies like Image & Marvel take a shot on these fellas? I want to see way more from them. You need to go over to the Blogspot page they set up and show your support, but you can find the whole comic after the jump in full. I really love this story. Check it out for yourself....

  1. I TOTALLY agree with you. This one will stick with me for a long time and should be canon. There is enough crap out there that pretends to be and few are as worthy as this story. When Bruce understands the insanity he is involved in at the very end. Wow. That is how you tell a story with a long established character.
