    On the other hand, the third installment in the Two-Face feature was pretty awesome. In the past, I've skipped this part of the book but man, they really had me going here. Two-Face in a coma-like state and a priest watching over him day after day after day. When he awake and recounts his past and every bad deed to the man of the cloth, I was really intrigued. It all came back to the coin and its place in the mythos of Two-Face and his relationship to Gotham. Really cool way for me to finish this read, even when the main feature here failed to excite.

    This is a great jumping on point for new readers, as long as you're aware what is going on in the batman universe. This is one of the best creative teams on any comic and is highly recommended if you're interested in the world that batman lives in. Read Full Review

    It's another strong outing from Dini and artist Dustin Nguyen, rounded out by the final installment of Ivan Brandon and Ramos Bachs' violent Two Face serial. If only Dini had the time to be the regular, steadying presence this book so desperately needs, Streets of Gotham could rank as one of the best Batman books on the stands. Read Full Review

    I like Hush a lot. Always have. He's such a nice change of pace from Batman's normal rogues gallery. So I had no problems with the Hush parts, I liked his interactions with Zatanna, Katana and Alfred, and I enjoyed his attempts at freeing Jane Doe(I also enjoyed Jane's utter confusion at why billionaire Bruce Wayne was interested in her). What I didn't enjoy was this boring backstory with the old mobster Read Full Review
