I suspect Snow is a silly human with no outift. My guess is he does all his posting naked.

Read this and will review it later, but I have to say...Batman felt like a third wheel in this story with everything else that was going on. Not to say that it isn't a great book...it IS. But the Batman parts of the story feel tacked on in a way.

Extremely good comic, just not a good Batman story in my eyes. I know that opinion won't be popular with you guys, but that's just how the issue came off.

I see your point. Batman is secondary here. But I don't see that as a detriment. I think it's okay, with thousands of Batman stories already told, if one issue places him in the background.

I see the point as well. But at the same time Detective Comics to me is more about the whole book of characters where Batman has always focused on Batman.

And I don't think this was supposed to be a Batman story. This was defiantly a story about the Gordons

So after reflection and rereading this book is still perfect. The art changes are a little jarring but seeing as how both have had major parts of this story it makes total sense. It's too bad this run and dick as batman is coming to an end, it's hard not to talk about the shitstorm the DC universe is about to become while discussing this book since Dick as Batman is a casualty and this run cut short because of it. Like I've said repeatedly I wonder when Snydely whiplash will occur it could happen with him writing Bruce but who knows. I'll be sure to be there to find out.
