    Great Starting Point! Although it's the second issue of the storyline, this is a great place to pick up as long as you realize a couple of things: Bruce Wayne just returned from the dead and Hush was posing as Bruce Wayne in his absence and looks exactly like him. There's a lot of Bat-books on the market this week: Batman, Batman Inc, Batman: The Return, and this book. I've read them all, and this was my favorite Batbook of the week, with Batman Inc falling shortly behind. Read Full Review

    This issue was slow-moving with little action, a bridge leading us to Much Bigger Things, as we see Tommy revealing himself and getting Pierce on-board in his fight against the Wayne Family legacy, which they both despise. But I'm kind of wavering on this comic. I'm hoping that as things flesh out here and Bruce gets back with Selina in some way, this will start to pick up. Read Full Review
