The Rundown: Batman and his allies discover the truth about both the offer and the drop in crime in Gotham.
After taking on a group of Talons beneath the city, Batman, Robin, Catwoman and Talia find themselves facing mutated beasts as well. After finding a way to escape, they discover Kirk Langstrom wandering in the dark and learn the dark truth about why crime in Gotham has fallen so dramatically.
At the same time, Bruce learns the truth about the grain Ras gave him a sample of. A truth that will change everything about the offer made to him and put the entire world’s future at risk.
The Story: Burnett and Dini craft an exciting and impressive conclusion to this arc. The story is filled with great action and surprises. I loved all the reveals in the issue as well as the way the story handles both the temptation of Bruce Wayne and the conspiracy in Gotham. The story delivers on everything that made me love this arc as well as the series and I can’t wait to see where the writers take the story next.
The Art: Templeton delivers fantastic art that reminds me why I love this series and the animated one that it is based on. The look of the Talons is amazing and the action is visually thrilling throughout.
