Holy crap. So, I'm guessing that horse from last issue was lit on fire and let loose on Batman . . . ?

Uggh...getting tired of Joker always setting up traps in Arkham. Why this place isn't the first one Batman checks everytime Joker is loose is beyond me...

I have to admit that I was hesitant about this series when they said "it would be a definitive Joker story like The Killing Joke or Death in the Family", but it is truly looking that way. Im loving the new spookiness of the Joker (not a fan of the face though). Snyder is writing with such a sense of suspense and keeping the readers off balance. I have yet to be able to see where this story is going or guess who is going to get killed. Capullos art is the stuff of the greatest directors, that last panel with the ........ has me like ???????.

Awesome Stuff
Whatever Clark is going thru right now pales in comparison to these literary legends going at each other again.

Capullo is perfect for Batman.
