The Rundown: Batman and Catwoman prepare to make their stand against Bane, but the Wild Card of Thomas Wayne is still in the deck.
Batman and Catwoman have made their way to the heart of Bane’s operation and are confronting the man himself. Having convinced Bane to make an interesting concession, Bruce and Bane take each other on with an unusual twist.
At the same time, Thomas Wayne has plans of his own for his wayward son. After defeating the rest of the Bat Family, the new Batman of Gotham decides to track down his son and Bane. What he has in mind for them is both brutal and final.
The Story: There is a lot that I loved about this issue. I really enjoy the City of Bane storyline and want to see how Bruce takes back the city and how he will confront Bane. Unfortunately, the issue itself seemed too short. It might have been the sparse dialogue or the fast pace of it, but I felt like I missed an issue or another part of the story somewhere in between this issue and the last one. The dialogue is great between the characters and you get a sense of the kind of verbal dynamics Bruce and Selina are going to have in their own series.
The Art: Mike Janin delivers some beautiful art in this issue. The art falls in line perfectly with the pace of the story and moves seamlessly between the A and B story.
