I think I might like this more than White Knight. I definitely like Katana's writing more than Sean Gordon Murphy's. The story is pretty interesting, and Harley is actually a nicely written character, much more so than in White Knight.

This was kind of a weaker issue. The pacing felt off. Little too slow at the beginning, little to quick at the end. Oh well, I'm sure it'll pick back up.

it might not be accurate but from what i'd heard the story of the 3 Jokers was built up like a mystery, then at the end Batman was just like "Yeah. I knew who he was the whole time." ....that sort of renders the entire mystery aspect as moot. though from what i'd seen of the art, it definitely looks worth a trade copy for that alone. but my collection is already long since toppling over itself with so many pretty stories that i just cannot get myself to re-read.

Ben Reilly - Aug 14, 2021

When it comes to the comics I have on my shelf, if it's been a long time since I read the story and I have no intention on rereading it any time soon, I just give it away either by selling it or donating it to my local library. But if the artwork is absolutely gorgeous, I'll just keep it on my shelf if the story isn't terrible and just skim through it like it's an art book.

So much better than the first X-of-Swords. With a better artist, this could've been a really outstanding issue. As it stands, I still really like it, it's just unfortunate that the one aspect is holding it back, and it's not even Leah Williams' fault, who really outdid herself this time, in my humble opinion.
