The Rundown: A former henchmen attempts to trade in some powerful information regarding Batman.

A former henchman and cat burglar has some important information, the identity of Batman. In an attempt to get some quick cash to leave town and provide for his family, he looks for someone he can sell that information too despite colleagues and others telling him how dangerous the Dark Knight can be.

After having a dangerous conversation with Two-Face, the former criminal finds himself in the presence of the new owners of the Iceberg Lounge as well as a group of former henchmen who are looking for one last score. The whole time, Batman looms over him before confronting him with an unexpected truth.

The Story: Zdarsky crafts an entertaining story in this issue. It shows another interesting side to the character and works beautifully within its world by focusing on a character connected to Batman as well as showing his influence throughout the city and with the darkest elements among it. Having the story told through the point of view of a low level thug is a great idea and has a rare and engaging positive ending.

The Art: Cowan and Jimenez deliver fantastic art throughout this issue. Both visual styles complement each other well in both the character moments and the action.
