It all ends here. The big finale. The grand crescendo. This was a big letdown. To me, you can make or break a story based on how it ends, and this ending didn't deliver. Bane finally goes back to his own persona instead using the Batman identity, which was refreshing. I almost forgot that Bane was actually Bane. He has his own identity, and him turning back to that was nice. But Bane's Talon allies don't pay off in the end.
Eaton lacked the storytelling capabilities in the fight between Bane…

I've been on the fence regarding this story from time to time. I enjoy what's being done with Two-Face, but the introduction of a brand new character to make the story work rubs me wrong. In general I hate it when writers introduce brand new characters rather than relying on the established ones. On the one hand never using new characters can lead to the Batman Universe stagnating, but in my opinion this universe has been established for so long that any new character feels like an unwelcome addition.

Well, with just two issues to go, Tomasi's story for Gotham's villians has finally picked up. Whether it pays off, we'll have to wait a month to see, but this issue was the best of this series yet. We can definitely see the shout outs to Frank Miller's DKR in this story for sure. Scot Eaton's art in this, is also the best we have gotten so far. It's very dynamic and fun to read, and I think the colors in this issue made it pop. Tomasi also continued the…

This ends up working more quickly, and Bane shows him around his lair, and convinces Cobb to be his crime fighting partner.
They come upon a group of villains taking each other on. Similar to last issue, on villain takes down another, only to be taken on by another,…

Mr. Freeze and Mad Hatter are retrieving the Talons from the incoming Man-Bats. Freeze notices that they are one Talon short, but they continue on anyway. We then see Croc, as he has seemingly saved Scarecrow from Bane, and is taking him inside Wayne Tower. Scarecrow offers Killer Croc Wayne Tower, as he has plans to run the city elsewhere. Croc declines at first, but soon accepts Crane's offer.
We then catch up to a fight amongst the villains going on in the streets as Bane captures Ogilvy, and turns him…

When I first heard about this book, I was thinking it was going to be a direct tie-in to the main Forever Evil story. However, it's been a pretty nice read all by itself. Yeah, it would be helpful to know what's going on in the DCU, but it isn't necessary if you want to pick this book up.
The comic opens up with a fight between a venom-hyped group of Bane's, against Kirk Langstrom and his army of Man-Bats. Then we catch up of Jim…
