But this issue offers no small amount of foreshadowing, though it does keep a few surprises. One bit of business seems overly telegraphed, but with no final pay-off (yet). Meanwhile, another off-hand comment suggests a new crisis to challenge the Bat-team.
In all, it seems a bit of misdirection, and that’s okay. I want to a story to zig when I expect it to zag, so long as it doesn’t zig off the rails. There is also another bit of dialogue that may or may not go as I anticipate. Future issues will tell, and if it happens, I’ll remind you of this one question: Has Terry’s girlfriend become Gotham’s vigilante?
Phil Hester and Ande Parks are on art chores this issue, and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve enjoyed their work since Green Arrow more than a decade ago, and I have seen too little of them since then. If this is their new steady gig, great. They deserve a high-profile title from DC. If not this, perhaps Nightwing.
