The Rundown: Batman’s investigation into the Orgham’s will attract the attention of new players in Gotham.
The Orgham’s forces find themselves overwhelmed in the tunnels beneath the city when they face off against a rampaging Solomon Grundy who is protecting his territory. IN the aftermath, Grundy makes a new friend trying to find her way out of the tunnels. At the same time, Bruce gets another visit from Arzen and contacts Barbara to learn more about the family and what they want with Gotham.
As Batman takes to the skies to pay a visit to Talia and learn more about the Orghams and their connection to her father, Barbara receives a visit from some interested parties who are also watching the Orghams as well as Batman himself.
The Story: An entertaining and engaging story that does a wonderful job of fleshing out the Orgham’s and their history. I loved the connection to Ras Al Ghul and what that connection means for the story going forward. I’m a little iffy on the new cast of characters being introduced in the story and what their presence will take away from the mystery and its affect on Batman and Barbara, but they are interesting enough to get me to read on.
The Art: Raffaele has an interesting and unique visual style and it works really well for the tone of this story.
