    In The End: Even though the main part of this issue was brief, the Jason Bard portion more than made up for this. This is an interesting way to tell the story as far as the Detective Comics side of the arc goes. As much as I enjoyed the Croc fight and the Jason Bard investigation, the best part of this issue by far was the one panel gag involving Alfred. The set-up was beautiful with Batman acting all serious about the gun getting looked over by someone with fresh eyes and then cutting to Alfred sitting in the Batcave whistling while he worked Seven Dwarves style. This is why I like Robinson as a writer. He has the ability to inject moments like this into his stories without having it seemed forced or out of place. Plus it was funny, which always helps.
