The Unknowns are a strange team up, which frankly I enjoyed. Clayface was my new favorite, and The Demon Etrigan is always fun to read.

I really like where the writers of the issue were going with the characters and the world they built around them. Kate Kane, Batwoman, refused to join the Batman team when asked, and only wears his symbol as a source of her inspiration.
I give great credit to the writers and artists of this issue for trying to tell a different story in an interesting way. The timeline jumps every several pages from a few weeks before, to the “now”, to two days ago, all while switching points of view telling the story through different eyes.
