    BGCP - Michael Lennox Feb 22, 2022

    This stranger in s strange land take on the Dark Knight evolution is an interesting tale but cramming in the serial killer seems a bit of an overkill. The story was already strong enough with confident Lucie and petulant Bruce adding an array of skills to him and providing a blueprint to how his other skills will be learned. Sometimes less is more but still a worthwhile read. Read Full Review
