Better than last issue but still not good. There are no fight scenes, just Bane like tank taking out Batman rouges. I still don't know why Batman just didn't called supes or something.

The better Batman book this week. Batman takes some time to explain a story about him an Harvey Dent that was really interesting and there are some flashbacks that tie in to the present day story. This issue is probably the best issue of this series so far. Scott Snyder is returning to his form from the New 52.

This issue succeeded in exploring the idea of the new 52 Batman I love from Snyder's run being faced with impossible problems not for Batman to solve normally, which are rarely found in Snyder's crime-focused run as well.
