Review: Batman - Haunted Knight

Boen saw my Amazon open as I was reviewing Batman White Knight, and made a request to read Haunted Knight. I checked it out of the Hoopla app, and read a third of it to him before he got bought.

The collection is 3 short stories set in the Batman universe prior to the recent reboot. These are pure Batman stories, no Robin, no Batgirl, with Jim Gordon making an occasional appearance. The villains are Scarecrow, the Mad Hatter, and the Penguin, with cameos by The Joker, Poison Ivy, and a few others.

There's all too much rumination about Batman's origin story, and while each story is competently done, none of them are insightful or brilliant. Definitely not worth using one of your 2 precious Hoopla checkout slots on.
