I haven't read a ton of the New 52 Batman books but was told I could enjoy this still. And while true, after reading it, I'm sure I missed out on some things just because of the massiveness of this story. And that is one of the issues with it. The plot is actually basic, a mystery, but it develops into so much more. In doing so, I think d some of the ideas where stretched a little too far. Not sure the trips to Tokyo and Brazil added to the story. They could have been localized in Gotham with the same effect. All the Gordon centered pieces were golden as he was definitely the MVP of the book. Editorially, there were a few timing issues but that's to be expected in a weekly. The art ranged form okay, to fantastic. Overall the book is good but I still think DC is trying in vain to recapture the magic of 52.
