This was a thrilling issue. This series is JUST as good as it was under Simone’s pen. Pick it up people! The Joker calls Oracle “Nuttier than Squirrel Poop”! I mean come on that is amazing. These new villains are some of the creepiest and interesting to be created in the last decade of comics. Especially Matchmaker, who is all parents’ worst nightmare…he matches pedophiles with their perfect victims online. I like all of these villains are really invested in 21st century techno-culture and web 2.0. The Joker not recognizing Barbara was hilarious and the ending I did not expect, but I am glad that he didn’t recognize her right away because it really shows how off his rocker he is. Is it just me, or does the Calculator look very different then his previous appearances in this issue? And does anyone know when Barbara was referring to when she said she had only come face to face with the Joker once since the shooting?
