Run, Riddler, Run reaches the Finish Line with Batman having to team up with the Riddler. It’s a timeless pairing as Batman needs the Riddler to help bypass the elaborate fail safes that the Riddler was hirer to put up for the building project he was hired out as a security consultant for in issue one of this mini-series.
I was very happy with the ending and I enjoyed this mini-series very much even though it wasn’t the plot I thought I was buying. But, hey, I found these gems at a comic’s show for only a quarter apiece so paying only 75 cents for a 3-volume tale of the Caped Crusade isn’t a bad deal.
I did find myself a little at odds with the main villains. They’re white surpremacists from the formerly Soviet occupied East Germany. While the villains are believable, why is it only German racists come from East Germany. I am sure when there was somev white surpremist Germans on the Western side of Germany when the Berlin Wall came up in 1962. So, why aren’t there any stories in which the German baddies come from the West? It’s be a unique and different take. Have I just missed those tales?
That’s what I love about hanging around other geeks. We come up with questions such as this. Many thanks to comics such as Run, Riddler, Run for opening my mind to all sorts of possiblities.
