Joe Bennett does have his moments when the characters come across more like visual props than real characters, but I'm delighted that he looks to be this book's new monthly artist. He does an amazing job when it comes to the action, as the aerial dogfight that closes out this issue is deftly presented. The art also has fun with the visual misdirection in the opening pages as a Gotham criminal comes to believe he's being stalked by Batman. The art also nicely presents the facial expressions of the characters, from Zinda's panicked expression as she calls Dinah about Barbara, to Ted's almost comical expression as he notices the two pounds of cocaine under the driver seat as they near the checkpoint. The surprise factor of the final page is also nicely done, and I actually recognized the character before he was identified, which is quite surprising when one considers the overall generic appearance of the character.
