Two-Face confronts the Dark Knight as his disciples spread out into the city.

Captured by Two-Face, Batman is suspended over a vat of the acid that made him what he is. After telling the detective about what he has planned for Gotham, he lowers Batman into the acid, but the Dark Knight is prepared and manages to escape after saving Harvey’s misguided followers.

Taking to the night, Batman discovers two of Harvey’s henchmen in the act of doing something particularly heinous and he stops them just in time to not only learn the strange story of how he came to work for Harvey Dent, but also how Harvey’s return was engineered by another, more twisted individual who is waiting in the wings and preparing the next part of his plan.

Tomasi does a great job of moving this arc in an interesting and entertaining direction. The story is tight and the plot moves well to keep the reader engaged in its suspense. There is definitely the feel that this story is moving towards a bigger arc to come and that is confirmed in the finale. The backstory moments are a highlight and Harvey’s interactions in them are great. I don’t want to reveal the villain behind the curtain in this issue, but it is fun to see how this character becomes a bigger part of this story arc.

Brad Walker does some awesome work with the art in this issue. From the thrilling action in the beginning of the story to the brilliant final reveal, Walker keeps the art, vibrant and entertaining.
