"Victims" part 1! Mr. Zsasz bears a memento for each of his victims--one scar for each. And now he's out to add Alfred Pennyworth to his sadistic tally. Crime once again strikes at the heart of Bruce Wayne's family, and once again the Batman is out for vengeance!

    I realize that issue #817 begins James Robinson's 4-issue run as writer (along with 4-issues of Batman), but after he's done with his story I'd love to see McCarty and Chiang become the regular team on this title. They did something with this issue that has not been done in a long time: They've crafted a Batman story that is about the man himself, not the persona that's been created and over-used poorly. So to those who are tired of the Batman as a high and mighty, know-it-all jerk stories, I urge you to pick this and next issue up. You will not be disappointed. Read Full Review
