Talk about Batman Strikes #19 here, I'll get some cover shots up in a bit. I'm featured in this issue, my commentary is in the back, funny I didn't write anything about Riddler though . Anyway, the story was great a 10 out of 10, I loved the story and appearance by, well best not ruin it. One of my top five favorite Batman Strikes, Chris and the crew did excellent!

Here is a pic of my comentary, although I wrote about Riddler it desn't seem to be in there. Oh well it's better than not having one at all. I do admit the last thing I wrote is corny. Hey I wrote this around September anyway, Matt I can't get the entire section or you couldn't read it. Hope that's okay. Oh and I wrote Mr. Freeze the right way, but they wrote it like that there.

Batman Strikes #19, anyone who gets a hold of this issue please feel free to post your thoughts. Chris and the crew love the fans thoughts of the stories. Chris I just loved it, Dave did an amazing cover, Bill had a nice story going, Terry did great on the inks, great job team!
Thats cool to have your letter in the comic , i've been sending letters since the 70's and never got one in. Very cool issue. The back cover features the DC Heroes Superman and Bizzarro if anyone likes those adds.
REVIEW: Before I never got The Batman Strikes. After deciding to on #18, and how good that was, I decided I should start getting it. My next issue is of course a new one: #19. Since...I'm not gonna go backwards on this series, just forwards.
In Season Two's "Grundy's Night", we were introduced to Solomon Grundy. I questioned this descion since while he was a DC villian (or a Superman villian, depends on my sources) he isn't a Batman one. With the twist in that episode's third act, it was handled fine. But from that last shot, we wondered....
The story: Batman has been fighting goons who have been dumping in the swamp. Gordon believes gangster Rupert Throne, who has returned from his capture seen in "The Bat in the Belfry" to be invovled, but Batman doesn't believe so as the truck they used belong to Paul Industries. The oen who runs, who everyone including Bruce Wayne hates, maybe invovled. At that night, someone calls out someone out from the swamp: the REAL Solomon Grundy.
First and foremost: Rupert Throne is back. I though he was gona appear in the Bane issue with him teaming with him. I guess this was a surprise of his real appearence; a cameo. Another thing: he wears shoes! Not sandles.
Despite what he looks on the cover, Grundy (real one) is just like what he looked like in Grundy's Night. Not a similar take to the STAS/JL/JLU design. The mystery wasn't about who destroyed what (as I thought), it was about the chemical dumps and whoever did that was planning on getting Grundy. Grundy was just a victim of what Mr. Paul was doing to his company to Grundy's swamp. He's not the main villian, Paul. That wasn't bad. I just wished it had more going at it.
Overall, while I like this comic series and love #18, #19 wasn't all that great in my mind. After reading it and went "well ok, thats it I guess. should there have been more". Its still good for its moments on characters. As for plot on his return, I feel something more should've been made for it.
