I enjoyed this little journey. I have been waiting to read a Cobblpot book that does the character justice in the newer gritty world of Batman. The violence is real and not full of bravado, and quite ruthlessly violent. and the relationships portrayed are exceptionally good at outlining the characters inner turmoil and giving motive. Some of the action panels lost me a bit and I feel the story did what it could in the few pages it had when the main point of this book was character.

timely writings about batman's arch villians. the Joker and Lex luthor were very good insights into the characters and thier origins. I hope there will be more of these coming about the riddler mr freeze the mad hatter ect. very good idea!!!
