Some thoughts about All-Star Batman #11

Alfred's past is coming for him this time.

During Bruce's new mission, Alfred can't help but remember the time when his surrogate son and him weren't so different.

This story is about to come to an end and is a damn shame.

Scott Snyder continues this arc by exploring even more of Alfred's backstory and revealing the obvious parallels between Bruce and him. Mind you, those aspects are handled a bit too blunt at times but they're still pretty effective in their own ways, particularly because of how Alfred's complicated relationship with his father was depicted which is something that Snyder apparently hinted almost since th beginning of his Batman run.

The present time segments are also interesting since they concentrate on the adventure aspects of Bruce Wayne with a huge emphasis on villains and action along with the usual strong characterization that you can expect from this book.

Rafael Albuquerque is in charge of the pencils and his work is really appealing with great storytelling and a pretty unique style.

Solid read, going to miss this once that is over.
