    As Batman finds himself as helpless as the police, he becomes more violent. Rozum at one point has him utilize his more lethal, razor-edged batarangs. It's nice to see he still has them. The common criminals fear Batman even more because thanks to Rozum, you get the sense that Batman could if pressed fall back on the deadlier ways he employed in the thirties. Ironically, Scarecrow's new power makes Batman even more of a nightmare. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is not a bad filler-arc, its hard to rate only the first half because there are so many questions that need to be answered. Its definitely worth checking out, and if doesnt grab you the first time, flip through it again. I hope Rozum has some good stuff in store for the conclusion. Read Full Review
