Mr. King lets The Joker and The Riddler to shine in this issue. I have never found The Riddler to be much of a challenge in previous incarnations, but this Riddler is a true equal to The Joker, just as manipulating, devious and evil.

Tom King is quickly becoming one of my favorite comic book writers working today. The story is easy to follow, exciting, and the art work is solid, making the whole cast looking remarkable throughout. There is a stylistic break during the Swamp Thing story, but it fits very well and I didn’t mind it. Tom King is making his own Batman, taking advantage of the character’s history, weaknesses, flaws and, of course, his strength. He handles Bane very well, making him a villain which resides on the same side of the coin of the hero he is fighting. Mr. King enjoys elevating Batman…
The art of this book is fantastic, absolutely gorgeous and moves the story forward in leap and bounds.
The story starts off fresh and even manages, slyly I might add, to tell the Batman origin story we all heard a thousand times without breaking up the narrative.
