The Joker and Riddler are still mad at each other. The Joker orders mob boss hour to kill Riddler in an hour or else. The Riddler goes to a crime doctor and rips off the scene from Batman 1989, but with more self mutilation on the Riddler's part.

The mafia goons find Riddler in a park with Poison Ivy. Her power of plant kill the goons.

The Joker shows up at mafia boss's house and despite having four guns pointed at him, joker shoots goons. We don't see this, but we are shown aftermath.

We see a lot of profiles of people who have been killed and we see a montage on super villains lined up on one side or another. We don't see why they chosen, again it is all told, not shown.

The Joker is still clinically depressed. He looks like joke from The Killing Joke. That is something.

The art is still too static for my tastes. That is a failing common to modern comic art. Better than classic, but lacking that sense of motion I believe comics need.

The book ends with Bats talking to Cats. We still do not know what his sin is. If it's Batman creates crazy dangerous villains, I will be severely disappointed. That is a cliche, and that issue was better addressed in the episode of Batman the Animated series where Bats is put on trial by Stephanie Zimblist Junior.

Basically we are in the same place as last issue. For this we get the Bats engagement question put on hold. Not cool D.C., not cool.

I really feel king does not understand the Joker or Riddler. The Riddler is not a physical villain. He is the definition of a mental villain. And the Joker is not a depressed dude who needs the mob to kill the Riddler. Not impressed.

Or I could be wrong
