Detective Comics 958 (2017)
FUNKY FLASHMAN! Well, that was a blast from the past. Never thought to see him mainstream again. Broken record time: This was a very good team comic installment and will probably never get proper attention or respect under the DETECTIVE COMICS banner. This should be more a Gotham Team than a Bat Team and with their own name. THE OUTSIDERS or THE NETWORK are perfectly good discarded (still copyrighted) team names or pick a new one to relaunch. Just like the JLA are more an American Team than a Bat Team these heroes in their own right would do good in their own book.
The art was excellent, as were those double page layouts, and the story flow was just right. The blood stained title was actually too smudgey to make out clearly. "Exmachwa?" Anyone? Each member of the team got a facetime moment and it was a great way to work The Penguin into the story. It's extra sweet when DC shows how a quality book can go at a buck less than ANY Marvel title.
It was really good to catch up with the current status and character design of Azrael for someone who has longpast lost track of his sitch. Didn't realize the original had died and that this new incarnation one was a test tube baby. It's a bonus that this story arc is focussing on Azrael origins and future promise. His new arch enemy looked pretty damn tough if not for the magical intervention of the surprise guest superheroine that show up.
