Panic has busted into this world’s Arkham to bust her mom out. Of course, it’s
no small challenge to do so, but she a wee bit of help from her homicidal
sidekick, Fennec Fox. And the kid is eager to do some damage against the forces
Violet learns that some things remain the same. Her mom is her mom, and her mom
is a tad bit unhinged, regardless of what Universe she’s in. But not everything
is so closely mirrored, as we are introduced to alternate versions of other
members of the Bat-cast. And there may be one more surprise in store for
Violet, if she can live long enough.
great thing about alternate reality stories is you meet familiar characters
that act out of character. Good can be bad, and bad can be worse. Yet it all
has that comfortable feel you know so well. Like biting into your favorite food
that’s been made by someone else. Same but different.
love that the art team has remained in place. Since the advent of DC’s Rebirth,
many art teams have come and gone, or rotated around so that no given issue
promises a consistent visual appeal. I grew up in an era when art teams stuck
around for YEARS, not a handful of issues and then moved on. I appreciate the
commitment Ibrahim Moustafa and Jordan Boyd have made to this series.
