A story focusing on the girl (named Harper) that’s made a cameo or two at the start of this series was refreshing. Since we first saw her we’ve wondered, “Who is she and how does Batman know her?” This issue focuses on her life with her gay (maybe twin) brother. She has a somewhat odd job, and as a teenager who’s currently looking for a job, I thought, “Even I wouldn’t take that job knowing how badly I need one.” I’m not exactly sure what point in time this issue takes place. At first I thought it was after the last issue, but then I was led to believe it was during the issue Bruce told the Gothamites his plan to rebuild the bad part of town. Her brother is also a pretty good character. In the beginning of the story he comments on how he wants his sister to seduce Tim Drake so she can break his heart and he’ll swoop in and they’ll fall in love. At first I thought that was disturbing, but then I laughed. Harper and her brother are saved by the Bat and she becomes something of a super fan. She very tech savvy and she figures out how Batman is able to scramble security cameras when he’s in the vicinity. She does run into him again and we all know how Batman treats his fans. I’m positve we’ll see another meeting between Batman and Harper, hopefully sooner than later. My only complaint would be that there were two artists this issue. Becky Cloonan does a fine job on her side, but Andy Clarke’s art wasn’t good enough to sum up to Cloonan’s.

Story: 4 - Very Good
Art: 3 - Good
