The Rundown: Bruce Wayne finds himself in a world beyond death and must discover a means of escape.

Talia brings a prone Bruce to a world beyond life and death. After trekking with him for days, she leaves him in the presence of someone with a connection to him. Someone who challenges him to battle the wolf and the demon inside him and reclaim his life and purpose. A fight that will challenge Bruce Wayne to determine who he is and what Batman truly is.

At the same time, Gotham continues to change and Montoya dons the mask of the Question again to get answers. Answers that will bring her to a former detective who has a connection to the death of another and a larger connection to the forces changing the city.

The Story: Ram V is developing an entertaining, intriguing and thought provoking arc for Bruce in this series. I love the metaphysical elements of the story and how it is bringing Bruce and Batman to a new and interesting crossroads for the character. I love how the Question storyline is being interwoven into Bruce’s story and how it showcases the dark changes in Gotham. I look forward to seeing how the character emerges from this journey.

The Art: Federici and Raffaele deliver powerful art throughout the issue. Both visual styles work perfectly for the parts of the story being told and complement each other brilliantly.
