Gotham is at the mercy of it's criminals! Two Face is on hand to be judge, jury and executioner...but for whom?
Thankfully, writer Peter Tomasi has spared us an origin issue for Two Face during Villains Month and instead focuses on the character's conflicted personality and actions. Issue 23.1 puts the readers in the throes of a Gotham City on the verge of collapse due to Batman's absence, as depicted in Forever Evil issue one. Tomasi reminds readers of this angle in parts of the story, creating quite a dilemma for Two Face and his Harvey Dent persona. Moreover, Tomasi interweaves the past with the present, showing a bit of Dent's time in the district attorney's office and his widely known legal skills, as depicted in the Dark Knight Returns movie. These flashback scenes remind us of what could've been with Dent's brilliant talents and Gotham's criminals instead of the corrupt yet fighting to maintain order ways of his actions in 23.1.
|Gotham's fate is decided by Two Face!|
Final Verdict: 8/10
