  1. is no one interested in the detective 🙁

  2. I liked this issue. I thought it was an interesting look at Oswald Cobblepot and want to see him get the best of Emperor Penguin rather than Batman. I thought Zsasz was handled well in this issue as well. I thought the short scene of Bruce at Damian’s grave was awkward and didn’t ring true for me. It makes me wonder how much time had passed since Batman Inc #8.

  3. Finally! Now that the Joker crossovers are over we can get down to the Emperor Penguin storyline. I really enjoyed the main feature for a change and was all prepared to feast my eyes on the Andy Clarke backup… only to find a different artist. Oh well, I feel like Detective is on the right track and am all in for the next issue!

  4. On the verge of dropping as the story is pretty weak, but that Fabok art keeps me coming back 🙂

  5. I really enjoyed this issue. And loved seeing Zsasz get some screen time. The writing and art in this have been excellent. It was great seeing Penguin get so humiliated.
