Story - 4/5

- Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story arc? How well did the issue further develop the characters?



Verdict - 4.3

- What I think: This issue is supposed to be a Joker tie-in with Death of the Family, unfortunately it isn't. The covers for the entire story arc are basically the same, one is a character involved, the second is them with the Joker face/mask. Getting each of these would probably look good framed on a wall, they are unoriginal from one to the next. The 2nd printing variant is the only cover I kinda like, but it doesn't exactly depict the events in the issue. The flow of the issue seemed all over at first but seems to iron itself out after the Joker plot is done. For your tie-in you can skip reading this issue and got straight to Batman #14 - Funny Bones; Men of Worship to see Harley Quinn's part. The only other tie-in is the final pages when the Joker hangs Harley out to dry. The rest of the issue is really just a recovery from the last arc and how each of the members are having Basilisk's brainwashing removed. There was little progression overall, but it wasn't a bad read and the art was great making it all the more enjoyable. Here's hoping the next issue gets thing going again.
