MEANWHILE… Bruce Wayne and Jack Ryder are on the trail of the source of Gotham’s ire, with all clues leading to a new, latter-day version of the Scarecrow. The “new” villain’s origin is a bit iffy, in my opinion, but no less so than Bruce’s when one thinks of it.
Artwork is in the hands of Will Conrad. Adequate, competent and no complaints other than he is not the previous team of Hester & Parks, but then I am admittedly biased. However, I do appreciate Conrad’s rendering of the future. He does have a greater sense of detail, and is fearless when it comes to depicting the crowd scenes of the current story arc.
Kudos to writer Dan Jurgens for reinventing classic foes for the second-generation Batman. He is crafting a larger world for the Terry McGinnis version of Batman, from allies to enemies. It’s my own impatience to see that architecture extend to Gotham City overall, and the greater DCU.
