    *SPOILERS*
    A well written story and the art was absolutely beautiful.
    I really like what king did with The Joker, he was truly terrifying.
    But this time The Riddler was the true psychopath. all this war, including killing Kiteman's son just to make The Joker laugh? damn! that was sick.
    I thought the ending was a bit disappointing. it was good, but I expected a bit more.
    Nonetheless, it was a great arc.

    The only character I feel confident that Tom King can write is the joker. This is not Batman. Letting all of these people die? The worlds greatest detective? And the riddler set up the whole war to get the joker to laugh? I’m laughing at how much of a joke this volume was.
