    In the backup, we meet Bat Lash for the first time in the New 52. This story is just a one parter, but sets up his personality for a future appearance in Jonah's side of the series. In this story, Bat details how lucky he is to be as handsome as he is. He cavorts with women – often sleeping with more than one at a time, and sometimes those girls are twin sisters. He's a particularly skilled gambler with a silver tongue. However, things may have run afoul for him when he returns to town to find one of the twin sisters he partied with nine months earlier pregnant. His explanation of how he cannot be the father is written well by Gray and Palmiotti and Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez' art is spectacular. Bat Lash might be a dandy, but he's a damn fun character to read.

    If you read BATMAN R.I.P., chances are you will pick up on some of the clues that the writers leave readers throughout the issue. Wayne casino chips, for example, I thought that was pretty clever. I think that it's good that the creative team on All-Star is trying to embed this series into the rich history of Gotham City; and I think it's important to do so. It makes it feel more relevant. I am a huge fan of Tallulah, so this issue really hit the spot for me. I thought her appearance was hilarious and there were definitely moments where I laughed out loud. I am definitely looking forward to the next issue. Read Full Review
