    After nine-issues of grasping at straws and trampling over every corner of Batman's world, it's worth pointing out that Tieri at least stumbled upon a character that he writes well: the Penguin. Tieri does a nice job capturing what sets Oswald Cobblepot apart from the rest of Batman's less cultured rogues, and there's one particularly poignant scene that sees him settle down alongside the only other civilized Bat-villain in Gotham, the Riddler, for what could be his last glass of fine vino. Jim Calafiore also deserves some kudos for his overall stellar work on this miniseries, even if I suspect that his style would be much more at home in a more traditional superhero book than the noir atmosphere of a Bat-book.
