Now the full tale of how Basil Karlo became Clayface can be told!
There's not much to say about Detective Comics Annual #1 other than it is brilliant, as all of James Tynion IV's work with Eddy Barrows, Eber Ferreira and Adriano Lucas has been brilliant. Though we know where the story of Basil Karlo is going, Tynion's script adds enough wrinkles to keep the reader guessing as well as a few nods to Clayface's most famous origin from Batman: The Animated Series.The artwork, as noted, is spectacular with not a single mistake or missed opportunity in any panel. If you haven't been reading Detective Comics, this is a great issue to start with. It's also a must-read if you enjoy a good villainous origin story,
The Final Verdict: 10/10.
