The Rundown: The audacious plan and its inevitable conclusion are finally revealed.
Among the wreckage and ruin of the park, the Clock King takes possession of the prize and reveals himself to be the mastermind behind the crime itself and all of the pieces that brought him to this moment of victory. As Batman attempts to stop a bomb being dropped on Gotham and The Help battles Catwoman, Clock King collects the eye and proceeds to leave the area knowing exactly what will happen next.
As Batman continues his hunt for the eye, he decides to take down the other conspirators as well by tracking down Catwoman, Riddler and Penguin before paying a visit to Ras Al Ghul for information. A trip that will put things in perspective as he tracks down and confronts Clock King.
The Story: King brings this series to a beautifully crafted and entertaining conclusion. The plot is brilliant and all of its moving parts come together to create a story that makes me appreciate Clock King as a character. The story is fantastic and filled with great action, introspection and resolutions that are perfect for the characters, especially Batman.
The Art: Marquez delivers some beautifully detailed art on every page. I love the different locations and character moments. Especially how the art makes you feel like part of the moment.
