It’s the Joker versus the Riddler in an early tale of Batman trying to stop the two villains from killing innocents and one another.

Tom King often uses good staging to start his stories and set up their conflict. I like what he did here with the stand-up comedian and the Joker. I also enjoyed how he mixed the Riddler in the chaos. There is a detective and crime noir feel to this story which like all of King’s work, is cerebral. It’s also a great follow up to the last issue and its surprising revelation.

I am not familiar with Mikel janín’s work but it is strong and very pleasant. I like how he clearly distinguishes all of his characters’ faces but waits before revealing the Joker’s. This comic is must-read!
