It is crazy how close we are to Detective Comics #1000 I wonder what will happen. I hope something Special! Well until then Detective Comics #995 is about,
Alfred Pennyworth…attacked at the Wayne mansion! Who’s hunting those closest to Batman? The monstrous shadow creature plaguing Gotham City gains the upper hand when two of the Dark Knight’s most ardent allies fall prey to the violent vendetta. Will those tragedies send Batman over the edge? Good thing he’s on his way to Arkham Asylum—but will he investigate a murder, or get incarcerated in a padded cell? – Dc Comics
I love it when Batman gets angry. This mysterious figure is starting to hurt and kill people that Bruce… I mean who Batman loves. Batman needs to figure out who is doing all those so his first stop is going to the Arkham Asylum, where everyone Batman has faced goes to so, he can find some answers.
You can feel the tension in this issue and you can tell something serious is going to happen in #1000, but focusing on this I love the urgency these comics give Batman and Alfred trying to save someone Bruce was influenced by; then a second later Alfred gets hurt.
This was a great read and if you also enjoyed reading it. Keep a look out for the next issue if you want to know what will happen to Alfred or what Batman might do!
