Beware the Batman #2

Expecting an eminent threat from Professor Pyg, Batman, Alfred, and Katana split up to protect likely targets. Capturing the super-villains minions, the heroes are unaware that his true target is a vacationing CEO and his family.

I've never been a big fan of Professor Pyg, but the various misdirection employed by writer Matthew K. Manning works well here and the villain's motives certainly fit his profile. I was also very impressed with the art by Dario Brizuela (who also did the awesome Scooby-Doo! Team-Up #1) who takes some liberties with the cartoon's all-black costume by adding some much needed grey, and gives us some cool sepia-colored origins panels for each of our three heroes.

Brizuela's panels make this one worth grabbing (even if it is a story about the ridiculous environmental terrorist Professor Pyg). I hope to see more of his work both here and on Scooby-Doo! Team-Up. Worth a look.
