    A pretty entertaining issue that is somewhat undone by the idea that we still haven't been told why Mary Redhorn is a hunted woman, and while I'm certain there's a reason why Devin Grayson is holding this information back, it does have the battles feeling a bit repetitive. I mean we have Nightwing spot the killers closing in on Mary, we see his efforts to keep her safe, and we see Mary uses the time he gives her to run away. This same scene plays out twice in this issue, and given last month's issue was simply an issue long presentation of this same idea, I must admit I'm quite ready to start getting some answers that will break the book out of this pattern. Now the action is well done & there some fun interaction between Dick & Barbara in this issue. Devin Greyson also has some interesting subplots starting up back in Bludhaven, so this issue held my attention even if the action is beginning to feel a bit redundant. Read Full Review
