Pop-art moments: I was drawn to dozens of Mr. Bermejo’s layouts — in particular, a stunning pose of Harley Quinn as a stripper and the battle between Batman and the Joker. Of course, the Caped Crusader was going to make an appearance. Who else could catch this pasty-faced cockroach?
Read it or leave it? Readers will gawk more than finely appreciate the Joker’s slaughter, with art much better than the story. Many Batman fans will feel compelled to add it to their collection. However, they won’t pull it from the shelf as often as Arkham Asylum, Batman: The Killing Joke, and Batman: The Man Who Laughs.
