And Then I Read: DETECTIVE COMICS 40

The conclusion of the Anarky/Mad Hatter storyline is thrilling, clever and satisfying. Batman and Harvey Bullock are both at the Blue House, the center of the case, and both are wounded. Anarky and Hatter are in a death battle, and Anarky’s minions are being mind-controlled by an unknown device that Alfred is trying to pinpoint from afar. The close quarters in much of the story add to the suspense, and coming together of all the plot threads and deadlines in one action-packed issue makes for great reading. The art is excellent too. Fine work by Manapul and Buccellato. The wrap up is equally satisfying. Well done.

Highly recommended.
