It's still underwhelming. The book seems to be dragging a lot. And I get the feeling that this was initially something like a mini that got adapted into a maxi series that once more got adapted into Batman. Or that this is the outtakes of a story that was split in two. Will wait for a couple of issues more but frankly this is still not working.
