Introductory stories are hard. I thought Snyder did a good job of drawing us into this world, establishing the characters and the rogues gallery in a really efficient way, and then wowing us with a brutal mystery and an awesome cliffhanger.
I just felt it was a rather cliched 'introduction' issue, I mean, it's pretty obvious this new mayoral candidate has something to do with the mystery and is probably a new villain. It felt like a step backwards after what Morrison had been doing with Batman. I was well-written and well-drawn, but nothing amazing. But then these days of Tony Daniel and David Finch, a solid Batman story is better than nothing
