Welcome to Arkham Asylum, Mitch Shelley. No one believes you when you say you gain new powers every time you're reborn. And no one is going to let you die to prove it. You're going to be here a long, long time...

    Fletcher, the aforementioned corrupt guard, incites a cell-break for Sumo, one of Batman's rogues, as a diversion to allow Sumo escape through the service tunnels. Before Fletcher or Sumo can escape, Shelley attacks and brings down the obese super villain. Seeing the man he's tortured for days finally displaying a semblance of power, Fletcher shoots Shelley through the temple even after Commissioner Gordon's expressed cease fire order. Deemed a hero, Fletcher takes medical leave. The final pages show Shelley going to take his revenge against the 'hero' who gambled Gotham's safety against a few bucks. It's a great, single-issue arc that really captures what the 'New 52' wanted to do; present easier-to-digest stories that could be accessible to new readers. Resurrection Mantends to hit this mark more times that not, and each month, Mitch Shelley's journey becomes more and more enigmatic. Read Full Review

    At the end of the issue, you get a strong idea on what "Resurrection Man" is about, and while you'll want to read more, you still have a complete story and a satisfying experience. I enjoyed the opening storyline that reintroduced "Resurrection Man" to the DC Universe, but this issue feels like it's more in step now with the sorts of stories I'd like to see. Mitch against impossible odds and needing to die instead of needing to survive? That's the beauty of "Resurrection Man." Read Full Review
