Some thoughts about All-Star Batman #10
Alfred has always followed Bruce during all his adventures no matter how dangerous they were but now he will realize that might be even more dangerous.
This series continues and is still quite entertaining.
Scott Snyder arrives with a new chapter where he plays around classic villains of the Batgallery once again. The take on Hush is pretty appropriate based on the character's past even though he only appears for a few panels while Blackbeard is reimagined in a modernized and quite on-point manner as well, although that also comes with a surprise at the end.
Alfred is also given a bigger importance this time which makes sense considering where the story is going which plays with a mystery while making it as action packed as possible.
Rafael Albuquerque handles the artwork and quite solid with an unique style that allows for interesting visuals and solid storytelling.
There's another segment this time written by Albuquerque and Rafael Scavone about a common criminal which is not particularly exciting but is solidly written so far. Sebastian Fiumara's artwork is pretty adequate for the kind of story they're going for thanks to his semi-realistic style.
Enjoyable read, excited for the next one.
