The KGBeast isn't working alone. As the Cold War between Batman and the Russian killer heats up, Batman's nose for mystery gets to twitching when he suspects there's more to the KGBeast's attacks than initially thought. Not only does this tie back to the court case Bruce Wayne sat on involving Mr. Freeze, there's another villainous Gotham ghoul in ...

The last line by MK in the issue is "what the...?". That was my same exact thoughts after finishing this. Last couple of issues have been a let down, hopefully #200 brings it back up.

THE GOOD:

-Joelle Jones' art is pretty great. She has room to improve as a writer, but her art is spot-on.

-The combat scenes, are really good. A lot of comics don't have as memorable action scenes, but the staging for these and the execution works quite well.

All your complaints were addressed in the previous issue where Bruce explains that the whole case was based on Batman finding the slug off ice in the brains that the police missed and that the police later varified was there after batman found it, but no one considered this slug was added after the first autopsy and is reasonable doubt but only if you believe batman is fallible. So yes you missed something.
