The creative team behind the acclaimed series, THE SPECTRE, deliver this hauntingly disturbing, 4-part storyline! Three horrific murders rock Gotham City with only one gruesome connection: parts of the victim's faces have been carved away. Can Batman stop his bizarre new foe known only as "Grotesk"?

    Most clichd and just for that, the coolest tidbit? I-GOR, Wayne Franklins invention, it comes across as a (well deserved) nod to one of the oldest and most, uh, underappreciated characters of modern literature and even more so, movies. Viva la Igor. Read Full Review

    Batman #659 was very ordinary. Ostrander and Mandrake failed to make much of an impression on me. This story arc comes across as pure filler and it completely fails to excite me or get my interest. Unless you are a big Batman fan, I'd recommend passing on this story arc. Read Full Review
