    The standalone nature of the tales here continues to be the big draw for me and Mark Russell nails another one with this story. It's a little convoluted at first until you get into the rhythm of it but once it gets underway you can see it as a simple story that might be included in a TV show or film as an opening bit of fun before the big event itself. Benjamin and Friend continue to do solid work with this title as I really like their take on the characters and the city as well as providing for some good action and even a bit of lightness thanks to Harley. Hopefully, they have more stories in the future through the DC Giants and this form. Read Full Review

    Batman: Gotham Nights #5 is is a decent one-shot Batman story that is big on set-up, but light on the story.  Mark Russell has Batman go through the motions, and besides a couple of guest stars, there is nothing here you haven't seen a million times.  Ryan Benjamin's art is good, but in the end, it's easy to see why this is a repurposed 99 cent issue.
