    This issue was good, but again Batman hopefully for the last time but this time the added joy of Jokers Daughter as well. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Cedbill Oct 21, 2015

    Lobdell and Medri deliver a pretty typical issue for this series so far. Medri excels in light-hearted action scenes, but doesn't perform well in the more character-driven scenes. Lobdell, the opposite. Lobdell's greatest foe, as per usual, is his incessant use of inner monologues as well as a sense of humor that is every bit as cringeworthy as it is boring. There's not much to say here other than the fact that i'm interested to see how this group of villains that keep getting shoved down our throat will turn out. Also, despite being an interesting enough villain to occupy both the Bat and our lovable outlaws, the character of Underbelly will most definitely not be missed. Read Full Review

    It's great seeing our duo in Gotham City, but this finale to the Underbelly story was really underwhelming.  The explanations for things just felt off and all the build up for our duo taking on the embodiment of evil was easily dealt with so we could just simply move on.  I still love this series and I think that the art is great in this book, but this issue left me wanting a little more.

    Just cancel this book" and stop giving Lobdell work. He's driven everything he's touched into the ground since the launch of the New 52. Read Full Review

    Tries too hard with gimmicky guest stars. Dialogue is really bad with cliched one-liners bouncing all around (even worse than Bendis). It tries to go for an emotional moment near the end, but it fails because the narrator won't shut up. Surprised that this didn't get canceled.
