Read full description of the books Batman: El Hijo de los Sueños:3.5/5
Two-Face, Riddler, Penguin, and Joker have all been spotted around Gotham, only it's not actually them, its people pretending to be them and they resemble them well, with one exception- they are all drug addicted and they are dying, and once they are dead the bodies degrade and mummify. All of these impersonators end up getting killed and Batman is lead to Tokyo to try and find out who is manufacturing this drug called "fanatic". It turns out, it's a Japanese billionaire just like Bruce Wayne, named Kenji Tomioka. He owns a pharmaceutical company and has an obsession with Batman and knows that Bruce Wayne is Batman. This drug called "fanatic" is a DNA altering drug similar to the splicers in Batman Beyond. It fuses your DNA with the DNA of someone else. Tomioka ends up injecting himself with the drug, which has Bruce Wayne's DNA in it and he becomes an armored Batman himself. They fight and he dies, by accidentally getting to many injections.
The problem with the story? It's a little to over the top even for a Batman comic. There is fantastic art through out that reminds me of Takeshi Obata's art on Death Note. (Jim Gordon looks exactly like Chief Yagami). Although it has a lot of exciting moments, the writing is not great, but I think it is still worth the read. Tomioka was an interesting foil to Bruce Wayne but there are a few plot holes in the book. It never really answers why the bodies were being mummified in the beginning, not to mention the book is a little long.
Read information about the authorKia Asamiya(麻宮 騎亜, born in 1963) is the pen-name of a popular Japanese manga artist whose work spans multiple genres and appeals to diverse audiences (1990s).
He is well-known for using influences from American comics, television, and movies in his work, and describes himself as a big fan of both Batman and Star Wars. One of the most widely-published Japanese manga-ka, nearly all of his stories have been translated into other languages, including English. His two most successful and popular manga series to-date are Nadesico and Silent Möbius.
Prior to becoming a manga artist, Asamiya graduated from the Tokyo Designer School, and then worked as a character designer for a number of anime series, and even designed models for some of the later Godzilla movies (1980s). For this career, he used a different pen-name, Michitaka Kikuchi (菊地 道隆), and maintained the two professional identities separately for many years. Several of the anime series that he worked on were very popular both inside and outside of Japan, most notably including Sonic Soldier Borgman. Even after focusing primarily on his manga career, Asamiya continued to do character designs and creative consultation on anime series based on his stories, occasionally under the Kikuchi name.
In the early 2000s, Asamiya has shifted his focus from teenage and young-adult stories to stories designed for children and for an American audience. In the former case, he credits his young children as a motivation, but in the latter case, he points to a long-standing desire to work with his favorite American characters. To that end, he has worked on projects with Image Comics, Marvel Comics, and DC Comics, as well as developing a manga adaptation of the movie, "Star Wars: The Phantom Menace".
While many Japanese artists (and artists in general) are quite reclusive, Asamiya often makes an effort to be available to his fans. He maintains a website with news and information about his studio, Studio TRON (named after the Disney movie TRON). He also aids and assists his Official Fan Club by sending them regular announcements and limited-edition merchandise. Despite these actions, he shunned all public photography, and had the often-hilarious habit of depicting himself with a placeholder sign for a face. It has become a trademark feature of his books that instead of a picture of the artist, there is an elaborately decorated rectangle sporting the words "Now Printing".
