    A rather disappointing finish to Jon Lewis' opening arc on this series, as after a fairly slow, but well constructed buildup, this issue rewarded us with a fairly intense standoff that had my utmost attention, and it resolved it in such a perfunctory fashion that I almost felt cheated. I mean I realize Robin can't win them all, and there will be times when despite his best efforts things will end badly. However, I dislike the way this issue has Tim acting like he's stuck in slow motion when the situation calls for decisive action. I also didn't care much for the way that the hostage situation was resolved, as there's very little dramatic appeal in a hostage situation when the demands that are made by the hostage taker are almost instantly met. Jon Lewis has established a slow, almost leisurely pace during his first arc, and while I can accept this change, I do hope that his future big climatic scenes are stronger, as this issue is a bit unsettling.
