Review by aadyer
A new start point for a variety of characters in the DC universe & in particular, the Batman Mythos. An interesting, yet not entirely convincing start to the majority of those mentioned in this anthology of stories, set as a super storm is about to hit Gotham & it's immediate aftermath. Some work well, & I'm thinking if the Comissioner Gordon & Green Arrow storylines here. Some aren't so good, like the Batwoman, & Red Hood & Nightwing storylines. Some of the art is excellent, some poor, but the majority above average. The whole thing can be read quickly as I did, or could be read in more episodic chunks. There seems to a fad these days for more realistic streetwise heroes, & this certainly plays to this. For some of these heroes, that works. For others it doesn't. However, overall though, worth a look.
