Batman One Bad Day #1: The Riddler Review

In the One Bad Day series, various creative teams showcase, through self-contained stories, different characters from Batman’s rogues gallery, beginning with The Riddler.

The first number of Batman-One Bad Dayto develop the history of Riddler (The Riddler)has an exceptional duo: Tom King Y mitch geradsas already mentioned, who have already shown their good work with the Murciélago, the former being one of the current references in the narrative of the Dark Knight.

After the premiere of the movie The Batman, the Riddler has abandoned the existing Kitsch vision in the collective imagination, giving way to a darker and more realistic image of the character in line with the stage of Snyder Y Cocoon in the comics.

The riddle he has killed a man in broad daylight, apparently for no reason, but there is always a reason. The villain is always making games to play and there are always rules. Batman will search for the witnesses to question them and try to understand the crime scene, as well as the killer’s motivationthe real reason for carrying out the murder.

Batman begins to carry out the necessary investigations to solve the case, maintaining a planning and preparation that he can use effectively (and gimmicky as a choreography) in the final phase of this. Edward Nygma does not omit in this story his murderous will, sticking to Gotham a fateful fate, cowardly and superstitious.

The Gothamite Duo

Tom King, as a screenwriter, weaves this story with a patience commendable, using flashbacks to build an image of a young man caught between expectations, which are impossible to meet. This portrait will explain the character of the Riddler that will be seen in this urban story in Gotham.

On the graphic and color side, authors Mitch Gerads and Clayton Cowles make good use of scenes focused on the face of the characters and show some really creepy visual flashes, the kind that make your hair stand on end, especially when they make use of vignettes on a completely black background.

The problem is in the core conceptIf the Riddler increases his villain status by letting his pathology and alias/gimmick run free, especially without the narrative that Batman’s coercion imposes, Nygma is a serial killer ordinary, like any other brilliant person who has broken inside and opts for homicide.

With the Riddle as a Felix Harmon more refined, a Victor Zsasz more charismatic and less physical or, perhaps, a Joker less extravagant, his baggage is different from that seen in other stories of the character and takes away some of the interest. The solution, too, is an empty promise because Batman cannot be him, but something different.
