    Ed Benes' work on this issue had a rougher edge to it, and I have to say I rather enjoyed the less polished appearance, as it lent itself more readily to the issue's darker tone, with the scene where Barbara decides to leave Gotham behind being the biggest benefactor of this altered style. The art also does a nice job when it comes to its delivery of the action, though I do have to make mention of the Huntress' tiny little crossbow gun, as it looks like the art was altered after the fact to explain how that handgun wound up shooting arrows. There's also a nice little quiet moment in the opening pages as the art is called up to convey the impact of the Clocktower's destruction. As for Eduardo Barrerto's work on the second story, it could use a little more detailing on its backgrounds, but for the most part the art managed to clearly convey the key elements of the story, from Ms. Blake's frustration at being grounded, to her devil may care attitude when she steals the Citation X.
