Very cool number. Not really smart, not really surprising, but very cool though. The art style keeps growing on me. I must say that I never liked this "sad" Joker, but he fits here. The closure is near now, I hope King ends this arc with a bang...

"THE WAR OF JOKES AND RIDDLES" part five!

Very nice tie-in, I read it just after I read Metal #2. To be honest, I like this Andolfo's art a lot more than the usual Teen Titans artist.

Very cool number, I think I liked it a bit more than #1 as this one was a bit simpler. I can't wait to see what those evil Batmen do.

Mr. Freeze is one of the greatest comic book villains (when written properly). This is a perfect example of what to do with him. Amazing!

Very good way to start a story; I always love when they show some unrelated villains just hanging out in Arkham having a "normal" day. I'm not familiar with The Shadow, but he looks really interesting. I don't know how it works when two writers work together, but this is a very coherent and simple story, I like it. I'm not really interested in Orlando's work, but I'm a big fan of Scott Snyder; wh more

I felt the very same thing while reading this that I felt while reading The Casting and The Forge: Scott Snyder is having fun with this! He's been giving DC some quality comics over the last few years, it was natural that they give him back some freedom eventually, and damn he's delivering. I feel that this is not Capullo's best work though, it's not at the same level as the writing. Is it becau more

I love this issue, it is so different even to the other numbers within the arc. I agree that the whole story is not being perfect, I don't like that "Batman choosing a side" stuff or the fact that they changed the Riddler so much that he can look just like a perfect rival to Joker, but this number works perfectly, even as a standalone comic book; it's precise and beautiful. I also liked the cha more
