This first in a six-issue miniseries is disappointing. A chance to do something weird and wondrous with such an oddball character as Bat-Mite, and he’s literally plopped into Batman’s Gotham to interact with Bat-appropriate level people.

Maybe it’s a high bar because we’re huge fans of Evan Dorkin’s World’s Funnest from more than a decade ago, which we regard as the best use of Bat-Mite (not to mention Mxy) in all dimensions to date, working on a higher level of comedy, parody, critique, and pure outlandish fun. Here, we get a super-imp fighting evil medical personnel. There is some humor, but it doesn’t really land for us. We’ll grant that the art is nice and appropriate for the Bat-Mite: cartoony and a bit exaggerated. (
