The Rundown: Ghost-Maker and his team will find they have some new international competition.

While Bat-Man of China is being berated by Ghost-Maker for his failure to keep someone alive, a series of attacks and escapes across the world get the attention of members of Batman Incorporated. At the same time, Charles deals with the aftermath of the attack on his father as he vows to find the man responsible. Nightrunner finds himself dealing with a deadly attack in Paris as additional attacks prevent any backup from coming to help him.

As Ghost-Maker and El Gaucho follow clues in Tokyo, they find themselves in a standoff against the one person Ghost-Maker has been waiting to confront, Joker. Unfortunately, the clown prince of crime has decided that he is going to take a page out of Batman’s book and start a team of his own.

The Story: An intense and entertaining new mission for Batman Incorporated and Brisson has crafted some interesting moments throughout the plot that got my attention as a reader. It was only a matter of time before Ghost-Maker would run into Joker and this new arc crafts an introduction filled with tension and thrills. As much as I have not really been into the proliferation of Joker in comic lately, his presence in this arc is intriguing enough to make me want to see more.

The Art: Timms delivers some bright, vibrant and brilliantly detailed art throughout the story. I love the visual style of the issue and how it captures the dark menace of the characters as well as the visually engaging action.
