The Darkest Reflections

2) Batman: The Black Mirror


A chapter from Dick Grayson’s time as Batman. This is a mystery to the extreme: A perfect example of Batman being a detective first, and a superhero second. So I don’t want to say too much. But I will say that imagery and plot work hand-in-hand to deliver a story full of chills culminating in the reader being held captive by the musing of a psychopath.

From “The Black Mirror”

Creepy Quote

“You see, this place is special, Dick. It is a city of nightmares. And I’m yours. I’m the face you see in the glass. A man with no conscience. No empathy.”

Hush(Another great Batman mystery–probably my favorite Batman story. Not exactly scary, but it will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat.) Batman: The Long Halloween (I mean… it has Halloween in the name. It didn’t make my list of scariest graphic novels, just because I thought other stories either had scarier imagery or implications. But it’s still a great read.)
