    This issue offers up a pretty solid glimpse at how Batman's support system operates, as right from page one of this issue Batman has one foot in the grave, and we see that not only is he extracted from the rather harrowing situation that last issue left him in, but by the end of the issue he's received the medical attention he needed without compromising his secret identity. Now the material is a bit slow in its delivery of several elements, as the villainous plot that Batman was investigating before his tumble is advancing as a snail's pace, and the big mystery villain has hardly made much of an impression thus far, though at the moment I suspect that the mystery villain and the childhood friend/surgeon that saves Bruce's life are one and the same. Still, the issue does have it's moments, as there's a fun exchange between Oracle & the Huntress, and the glimpse at Bruce's childhood was pretty solid, as it's rare to get a scene when Bruce isn't the most serious person in the room.
