The Rundown: Batman continues his investigation as the thieves deal with paranoia and uncertainty.

In the aftermath of their heist, Catwoman and Riddler as lying low at a safe house waiting on a call that hasn’t come yet. As they wait, Selina contemplates just how angry the Batman is going to get when he discovers what they stole. Something Croc will discover first hand as Batman comes to his cell in Arkham looking for answers and not being subtle about how he plans to get them. At the same time, Selina thinks back to a conversation she had with Joker and her increasing paranoia causes her to lash out.

As Selina’s paranoia grows, she thinks back to the beginning of their plan as Riddler lays out what they’ll need and who would need to be involved. Batman continues his investigation and discovers what happened to Penguin as well as why he was left the way he was. As he races to where Riddler and Catwoman are hiding, the thieves get a visit from their mysterious buyer.

The Story: King continues to create an engaging and compelling story with beautiful layers that keep the reader invested in each aspect of the story. Batman’s investigation takes a bit of a back seat, but the focus on Riddler and Catwoman reveals great character development and emotion. The story continues to keep and hold my interest as its mystery unfolds and I cannot wait to see where it goes next.

The Art: Marquez delivers some fantastic visual flair to every page of this issue. The art and its style are beautifully detailed and deliver on the tone and emotion of the story.
