Romy and Driver continue their investigation into the Lewis kidnapping while the rest of the team tries to track down the arsonist Firebug, who's been setting Gotham aflame!

    This issue doesn't offer up much forward movement on the Bonnie Lewis murder investigation, in spite of the fact that most of the issue is devoted to following the activities of the two detectives working on the case. On the other hand the Firebug case almost advances too rapidly, as in the five pages that it received, the case looks to have been busted clean open, with Firebug being taken into custody by the GCPD. However, in spite of its lack of forward momentum, the Bonnie Lewis case provides the most enjoyment in this issue, as there's some very engaging character interactions between the two detectives on the case, and there's also a cute little side-plot involving a batarang that made a for a cute reminder that this book is part of the Bat-family of books. The big development in the Firebug case was also quite a shocker, and one wonders if the GCPD have gotten the right man, or have they just made a very serious mistake that could come back and bite them at a later date.
