"What we do here, we do for the future of Gotham"

I finally got around to reading the third chapter and honestly, this whole story turned out to be quite forgettable in the end.

Granted, I did enjoy the first issue, but in hindsight, I think I might have let some things slide here and there due to the fact that I really like his art and some other works of his that I've read. more

"Even Batman can't win against the whole world"

Hm... so it's another ending without an actual ending. This time I was half expecting it, so it softened the blow rather drastically.

Still, it is a bit annoying that this story just can't seem to end. One has to wonder if there will be ending satisfactory enough to justify all this prolonged buildup.
