    Honestly, it pains me to write a mediocre review for an O'Neil project. His work on Green Lantern/Green Arrow and the 1970's Batman are amongst my all time favorite superhero stories, and when you take into account all the other amazing tales which fell under his editorship, it's hard not to place his genius right up there with the Kirby's and the Eisner's of the world. But again, remaining earnest, this particular enterprise certainly isn't his best work. Whether this is completely his fault, however, remains a whole separate question. Read Full Review

    There are certainly some things that I don't like (Gordon and Bullock's characterizations), and some things I really do like (Nightwing looking at the city as his) that sell the issue for me, but overall, this is a slightly above average story, earning Batman #684 3 out of 5 Stars.

    Ultimately, this story felt like filler at a time when the Bat-books are being heavily hyped by DC as being at their most exciting. Inevitably, it comes off as a disappointment, and suffers in comparison to whats come before in the title. Maybe it would have found a better home and a more receptive audience in the regular Nightwing title. Read Full Review
