BONUS REVIEW by Kevin Healy


The First Victim is a villain who using the media to gin up fear of Batman and the Bat-Family. People, being people, are going for it in full force. Clayface, on the road to redemption, is having a bit of a relapse. That has his team scrambling to find a way to get him back. That's pretty compelling, Clayface is presented in an interesting and sympathetic light, so that's all well and good. The infighting among the team, the 'maybe he's right...' (the First Victim) aspect of this story is too similar to other stories that have characters going at each other who should be smarter than they're being written. It's right on the cusp of really good, but doesn't quite get there when we're reminded of Spider-Man 3 at the end.

I give it 6 out of 10 Grahams
