Review DC USA – Batman: One Bad Day – Two-Face #1 by Mariko Tamaki and Javier Fernández

Appointed dates for the Dent family.

“Batman, I didn’t know you were invited to this party”

Batman is going to eat DC. In addition to his presence in the regular series, every week we have news about collections and specials related to the bat. The difficulty of adapting the old characters to the new times contrasts with the ease with which Batman and his entourage adapt to the dark and uncertain times we live in.

Perhaps that is why a character as unlikely as Batman stars in comics that we define as (more) “realistic”.

DC shows look like Bruce Wayne’s family tree. Collections of Robins, Nightwing, of his villains, specials of the present Batman, the one from the past and the one from the future.

We complain but then we enjoy many of his comics that also enjoy some of the best authors as is the case with the present one, with Mariko Tamaki and Javier Rodriguez.

What is this about?

The story is original to the fullest. It begins with a confrontation between Batman and Two-Face. The villain is about to kill the future mayor of Gotham. Batman saves him. They arrest Dent.

Let’s go to the present. Mayor Nakano gives Two-Face the benefit of the doubt. How could our beloved Harvey Dent refuse a second chance? He apparently reforms himself.

At the end of time, Dent asks Batman for help. The prosecutor has received an anonymous letter in which he threatens to kill Harvey’s father on his eighty-eighth birthday.

Batman deploys a thick security system that will fail?

We will only say that as always Harvey does not reform. And therein lies the tragedy and powerful subtext of DC’s most anti-political character. The system does not work. Reinsertion is a farce. Dent exemplifies the failure of a way of understanding justice and law.

It is not the merit (only) of Tamaki, It is something that has always been present in Dos Caras.

Script

The writer who has recently left Detective Comics (in the USA) to make way for Ram V, still had things to say about the character. Here he has space and time to explain the origin of Two-Face, the relationship with his father and show us a taciturn and dry Batman.

It is a long special, more than a regular staple and it is the perfect size to develop the plots and find the right rhythm for the story.

The dialogues flow and are accurate. They fit perfectly with Harvey Dent’s wry irony and Batman’s dryness. Tamaki he sinks into the platitudes of the characters and yet he still has fresh ideas.

He drew

Javier Fernandez it’s stellar The drawing has many details, textures and shapes, it is full of nuances and its washed-out style is never lost.

Attention to detail of the malformations of Harvey and his father.

We know that Fernandez He is a great cartoonist not only for the characterization of the characters, for the proportions, for how well he draws the movement… we see that he is not only a great cartoonist but also a brave illustrator for the detail and realism of the backgrounds. We have seen and read a number of cartoonists who on a page draw a background for us to position ourselves and then the rest of the vignettes are bodies, faces and speech bubbles to “cover” that there is nothing behind. Javier Fernandez No. He details buildings, offices, cities and interiors giving the comic an almost photographic verisimilitude.

Then we have the narrative section in which the illustrator offers us a wide range of resources that enhance the script of Tamaki and give the comic the necessary rhythm.

It is a work to read, reread and fall into daydreams about what other comics could have the art of the Catalan cartoonist.

Definitely…

It is not just another Batman comic, nor Two-Face… well yes, but no. It’s another showdown between the two antagonists that delves into the roots of Harvey Dent and is captured at an above-average level of quality.

The format and date on which ECC is going to publish this work remains to be known, but it is a must-buy for more or less regular Batman readers.

The best

• The script of Mariko Tamaki.
• The drawing of Xavier Fernandez.

Worst

• That goes unnoticed by the fatigue caused by another Batman comic.
