    Sadly, I feel consistency may be tough to find in this series since a new creative takes over for the next issue. From the perspective of making deadlines, I get it, but it's almost a sure thing that the overall story will suffer since each team will probably have a new take on The Joker. There's a lot of good work in this issue, for what it's worth, and I'm excited to read more about Arkham's best, seen in the eyes of Arkham's worst. Read Full Review
