Thanks as always for these ongoing thorough reviews. Hopefully, more posters will take your lead on the other titles, too.
Not going to disagree with anything you said here. Got to reiterate how good the art was. Loved the Austin Powers appropriate reference. In the dark about the point about the writer's wife.
Only mildly curious about these points - but still, something else to add about the ish...
A footnote! That's a good reader (& character) friendly gesture BUT readers would probably be more happy to read HOW he got the wand? Was it's Jason Blood's (upper case) Demon? Did Z give him pointers for talking backwards or did Klarion just instal that trigger? Or at least let the readers SEE the circle which MUST have been invisble or clear liquid -OBVIOUSLY?- since Damian made a point of emphasizing the word CIRCLE?
Was this the first time we see Selina speaking (fluently?) in French? Or she just knows the lyrics? Have we ever seen her cooking an elaborate meal?
Hall of Justice security will have to be updated to prevent against unseen plot devices... or just an assumed amazing unseen showing of Damian? Seriously, Batman and Bat-Fam? Even NOW, you won't call in the JLA, Outsiders, or superhelp of any kind?
"Let his whole universe collapse because of a button."?? Say what? A reference to Watchman's Comedian in some way?
What was more shock value- the suddenly gratuitous and deliberately inciteful splash page given to Bane or the boringly undramatic quick-change closeup of the Bat and Cat on the last page.
