From the very start, Batman's been on the murder case and sifting through clues. No one knows better what it's like to lose someone you love. He's the World's Greatest Detective, and after the events of this issue, it's even more important than ever for The Dark Knight to prove it...

    On a side note, I also looked through the newest issue of JSA, an Identity Crisis tie-in. In it, as Dr. Mid-Nite performs Sue Dibnys autopsy, Mr. Terrific accuses him of being too cold, and other members of the JSA react to Sue Dibnys death in their own ways. Not bad, but not necessary to this story. Read Full Review

    Its interesting for me - as a relative DC newbie who shouldnt really care about the ramifications of such big crossover events that even without knowing all the ins and outs of the various DC characters featured in this series, the weight of the revelations here are easily conveyed through the story and art alone. The creative team has crafted a superb penultimate issue, the high point of the series so far, which sets the stage for a knockout finale whilst leaving some loose ends to be tied up, mysteries to unravel and even the possibility of a further twist in the final installment. Bring on issue #7 Read Full Review

    On the other hand, with that gripe out of the way, Identity Crisis #6 is a great issue. Brad Meltzers story remains thrilling, painstakingly constructed, and full of small and big surprises. Much is revealed this issue while many questions arise. And if Sues killer is who Batman thinks it is, itll truly be a shock. Im on the edge of my seat to see how Meltzer rationalizes it. If the killer is who I think it is, then its a shock with a plausible explanation, but a shock nonetheless. Also, Rags Moraless art is simply fantastic, and I really like how a potential visual mistake in issue 3 is revealed here to be another part of the JLAs dirty secrets. Good twist here. Overall, there is a sincere effort by the books creators to make this story work, satisfy, and surprise on many different levels, and I commend that. I now have one month to play Batman and arrange and process my theories to see if Ive solved the puzzle, confident that Meltzer will throw me for one last aweso Read Full Review

    The With one issue to go, its unlikely that the obvious answer from this issue is the final answer. My money remains on Lex Luthor being the puppet master behind the murders. But even if Im wrong, its the most fun Ive ever had being wrong. Read Full Review
