Batman: Preludes to the Wedding Reviews
Jasonowy zeszyt najbardziej mi podszedł do gustu i może dlatego tak wysoko oceniam, ale śliczna kreska w zeszycie Harley i to, jak ona podchodzi do Jokera teraz, mając go i jego manipulacje w dupie, również zasługuje na wysoką ocenę.
I received this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
3 stars. Given the obvious reasons for publishing this volume (making as much money off of the upcoming Bat-Cat wedding), I'm not sure that it met the mark.
Out of the lot, I enjoyed the Batgirl/Riddler chapter the best, and really disliked the Robin/al Ghul chapter. Seriously, what happened?
Overall, the artwork was very good, with the Harley/Joker chapter coming in with the best artwork.

Batman: Preludes to the Wedding by Tim Seeley is a collection of stories where side characters in the Batman universe react to his upcoming wedding to Catwoman. This graphic novel collects Robin vs. Ra’s Al Ghul #1, Nightwing vs. Hush #1,Batgirl vs. The Riddler #1, Red Hood vs. Anarky #1 and Harley Quinn vs. The Joker #1.
This graphic novel tells separate stories, all connected to the upcoming wedding of Batman (Bruce Wayn ...more
'Batman: Preludes to the Wedding' by DC Comics collects a lot of one shots leading up to the big event.
The prelude story, written by Tom King, is about an anxious Joker waiting for his wedding invite, and it sets a tone that isn't quite met for the rest of the book. The remainder of the book is a series of vs. confrontations between the Bat-Family and some of the various Batman villains. Tim Seeley does the writing with various artists doing good work.

I love Batman and Catwoman. Two of my fav graphic novel characters out there and I SHIP them. So when this and the "Wedding Album" came out, I was ALL over requesting them. Since this one has the word "Preludes" in the title, I read this one first. I also assumed it would tie in with the "Wedding Album", but not so much, more's the pity, because this one was really quite great and I think the other one would have done better if it had followed the storyline in this one.

Batman: Preludes to the Wedding includes six stories providing background to the events that occur in Batman and Catwoman: The Wedding Album.
The first and last story describe how the Joker receives his wedding invitation. The last also includes Harley Quinn. From This Day Forward includes a scene of Damien Wayne getting his wedding suit tailored where he describes his history to his soon-to-be stepmom, Catwoman. Later after returning from her bachelorette party, Catwoman and Damien have a seriou ...more
I was a little disappointed with some of the stories in this collection.
Part of my problem is the modern take on The Joker. Unless he has the power to be unkillable, someone would have killed him by now. No, really. The body count he's built up is just not believable, in terms of other villains letting him live. Or the mob. Or even the police. Sorry, but the Gotham City police department isn't made up of angels, and I can't see anyone even TRYING to capture him alive anymore.
That said, the litt ...more
You know, I probably enjoyed these more than I should have. I mean, I know they're a marketing ploy. Tim Seeley, for the most part, raises this collection of one shots above the mere marketing and $$$ grab.
I haven't been reading the mainstream Batman titles for some time, but Seeley makes good use of minor characters (ex: Anarky). The underlying plot thru these titles, well really in the background, is Joker's complaint that he didn't receive an invitation.
Go get some popcorn, and sit down with ...more
