The war between Batman, Inc. and Leviathan reaches it's most deadliest point, with tremendous casualties to Batman's team. What lies ahead as The Dark Knight is confronted by The Heretic for the first time?
My biggest complaint about issue 6, is that certain elements of the story is almost too similar to Morrison's own work during the "Batman and Robin Must Die" arc in the Batman and Robin series. Gotham on the verge of collapse, anarchy, fallen heroes, unfortunately Morrison doesn't bring anything new or revealing to readers of his past work, especially longtime faithful readers. It's almost a rehash of the Thomas Wayne and Professor Pyg material but with different antagonists.
Issue 6 is still an enjoyable read with tender moments featuring the classic Robins and believe it or not, Damian as well! I also particularly enjoyed the banter between Talia and Bruce, although the cover is misleading as readers may not get what they wish for. Top notch artwork by Chris Burnham with additional work by Andres Guinaldo are some of the saving graces of this issue.
Final Verdict: B
