Its all talk and no action in this boring and quick to read issue, but all this exposition is a waste of time because in classic Hitch fashion none of the characters know anything about whats going on and the few that know something say nothing. Its getting clear that for you to understand a little better all this crap you must have read Hitch's previous JLA series. The only thing I like are the v more

Cant recommend it as a tie-in or a Gotham Academy issue. The issue deals with the Detective Club trying to solve a zombie mystery with Riko (from We Are Robin) getting involved by accident; the zombie turns out to have some sort of connection with Olive and the Court of Owls (who Riko gets a glimpse of and later in the main event it has some impact on the story)
