    This issue is steeped in action. Intense combat scenes created by Foreman ensure the reader is fully engaged. But in the quieter moments, the use of facial expression and demeanor is emotionally connect the audience. The art here is well done and serves to enhance the tale. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond May 18, 2021

    A truly gorgeous and energetic action-packed issue is somewhat marred by a few ill-conceived story bits not hitting in the way the writer likely hoped that they would. At the same time, quite a number of elements developed through the previous ten issues begin to reveal themselves even more as the final issue is coming up. Despite some stumbles, there is a lot that this series is saying about the real world through the lens of Gotham that are worth checking out. Read Full Review

    This was a really quick issue, and I hope the crazy fast pacing isn't indicative of this story being prematurely wrapped up. Also, Bats20832 doesn't seem to understand what nuance is... Or what the act of redemption is, conceptually? I swear, he sounds like a more unhinged Steve Ditko.

    DC Comics has "killer" heroes unite, in what it views as its "Future State."

    Amazing how criminals with knives, and criminals with swords look so much alike. But in other comics, this is probably why John Ridley tried to express that Katana was justified as a "killer," based on her associations with the Bruce Wayne Batman. As if Katana's history as murderer was not well documented. And of course, the Bruce Wayne Batman **WAS** wrong to ever work with her. We knew this last century. Wrong=Wrong.

    Edgar Acevedo about killer Jace Fox (the "Next Batman"): "I swear on my dad's grave you just bought yourself a world of hurt." You could imagine it being Bruce Wayne talking about the criminal Joe Chill. But in this perversion more
