about

Batman puts together his own team of Gotham City vigilantes in this great new starting-point graphic novel, BATMAN – DETECTIVE COMICS VOL. 1: RISE OF THE BATMEN, from DC Rebirth!
 
An elite fighting force modeled after the Dark Knight has invaded the streets of Gotham. Their armor, weaponry and surveillance equipment are based on Batman’s tech and tactics, but they’re far beyond anything he’s ever seen. And while these Batmen’s motives remain a mystery, their targets are all too clear…
 
They’re gunning for Gotham’s vigilantes.
 
Batman knows he can’t face this foe alone, and neither can the crime-fighters caught in the crossfire. So with Batwoman—secretly Bruce Wayne’s cousin, Kate Kane—as his general, he’s organizing the next generation of Gotham heroes into an army.
 
Tim Drake, a.k.a. Red Robin. Stephanie Brown, a.k.a. Spoiler. Cassandra Cain, a.k.a. the Orphan. And reformed criminal Basil Karlo, a.k.a. Clayface. These are the shock troops in Batman and Batwoman’s war. When they finally see the face of their true enemy, will they stand together…or fall apart?
 
Find out in BATMAN: DETECTIVE COMICS VOL. 1: RISE OF THE BATMEN, a great jumping-on point for new readers! This masterful high-octane thriller from writer James Tynion IV (BATMAN AND ROBIN ETERNAL) and artists Eddy Barrows (NIGHTWING) and Alvaro Martinez (Ultimate Comics X-Men) explodes from the blockbuster DC Rebirth event! Collects DETECTIVE COMICS #934-940.
James Tynion IV started in the comics business assisting Scott Snyder in writing backup stories for Snyder's groundbreaking BATMAN series. Tynion soon began writing TALON a series that spun out of the hugely popular "Batman: The Court of Owls" storyline.  He has also written CONSTANTINE: THE HELLBLAZER and RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flawless in every way possible Good thick book with a good story plot and was thick which made it well worth the cheap price at Chapters

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING "<i>There are people out there right now who could use a helping hand, and we have the ability to give it to them.</i>" Rise of the Batmen collects Detective Comics 934-940. It follows the story of Batman and Batwoman as they team up with others to fight a common enemy. I just... Wow. Whilst I loved I Am Gotham, I adored Rise of the Batmen. I loved seeing other characters like Red Robin and Batwoman, and I thoroughly enjoyed the concept of teamwork that was overly present in this volume. On top of that, there was a small mention of Jason Todd, which I thoroughly enjoyed. This was amazing, and I absolutely can't wait to get my hands on more Rebirth comics. Like, wow. I seriously don't care about people who say Rebirth sucks. It's amazing to me, and that's all that matters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Team-Up! I cannot believe how amazing this one was! I was blown away with the writing/story + the characters they chose to make up this team. Spoiler and Orphan were two of my favorite Batgirls of all time and I'm glad to see them back in action as their own vigilantes. Red Robin of course is one of my favorites too. My heart broke at the end of this one. But there seemed to be a ray of light to cling on too. Can't wait to read the next installment!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than the standalone Batman Rebirth BM Detective Comics Rebirth definitely has a stronger story than its standalone Batman:I Am Gotham Rebirth counterpart.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Rebirth is off to a good start One of the best titles coming out of DC Rebirth. Discovering the heroes of Gotham city have been under surveillance, Batman has tasked Batwoman to lead a special task force (akin to his Outsiders) made up of Red Robin, Spoiler, Orphan and Clayface. The story touches on an aspect of Batman's personality familiar to Batman readers: his obsessive need for control, including his (lack of) ability to trust those around him. I think the greatest strength of the book is the notion that Batman is an ideal that can be weaponized and more importantly militarized. If he is only willing to work for himself because is unwilling to compromise on certain principles (i.e. killing), how can the US military benefit from the skills and techniques he's developed to such proficiency? The answer is they create an army of Batmen. For the flaw of the story I go back to an interview with Jeph Loeb a number of years ago where he said that Geoff Johns had a story for a character he really wanted to tell but needed to write the book for a year or more to set it up. Loeb disagreed saying just write the story. I think Tynion IV followed Loeb's advice here. A longer setup for these characters, especially the relationship between Batwoman and her father would make the ultimate choice she'd have to make in this story have a much bigger payoff.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favourite DC Rebirth Volume Yet! Incredible story, great fleshing out of Batwoman and Tim Drake and a significant story all around. Definitely consider this an essential in your rebirth collection!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Solid Start A solid start to the Rebirth era of Detective Comics. Focused on the larger Bat-Family of characters - Batwoman, Red Robin, Spoiler, Orphan and, of all people, Clayface - the title has a different flavour than the current Batman and All Star Batman books. The relationships between characters is well established, the story is well paced, and the art is crisp and clean. Recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rise of the Batmen ..... Indeed! This is the best DC Rebirth graphic novel that I have read thus far. Excellent characterization combined with action & drama. The return of Batwoman marked another evolution to this remarkable character ..... she is now an equal to Batman! I missed her. Tim Drake/Red Robin has experienced a phenomenal rebirth after being cast out for nearly a decade. Tim's future post-Red Robin was assured until that unexpected irony at the end of the book. But that irony has made Tim one of the most important characters in the current mystery surrounding DC Rebirth. The inclusion of Clayface to the series provided some (dark) humor , which I enjoyed. My favourite part of the book is the history between the Wayne & Kane families ..... an almost Romeo/Juliet romance between Thomas & Martha Wayne. Eddy Barrow's art is the best that I have ever seen & Alvaro Martinez's art is also spectacular. James Tynion has just written his best work! Oh yes .... I enjoyed the Superman references made in this book.
