Artist Jim Calafiore captures the atmosphere of Gotham City quite nicely, and since he's free from the rigid structure of Countdown, he's able to stretch his legs a bit with some more creative panel layouts. Though it doesn't have anything new to say about Gotham or the Dark Knight, Batman fans will enjoy this issue for what it is, a nice little tour of the grittiest city in the DCU. But if you're not a Batman junkie, and you've decided to avoid Countdown-related books like the plague, then by all means, stay away. Read Full Review
There are a lot of balls in the air on this title, some of which I didnt even address. It will either keep the book confusing till the end, or add to the suspense and aura of the book. I will give it another issue or two before I drop it, mostly because its part of this very interesting story line (and because its Batman). I would recommend trying this title out, but only if youve been on Checkmate and Outsiders like me. Read Full Review
