This is one of those things where I think the whole point may have flew over my head – in terms of what exactly Una was trying to say about Bruce Wayne (Or Paul Cornell was saying for that matter) but I sure enjoyed the edge of your seat and crazy supervillain traps that I give this issue a thumbs up. Good stuff. I hope she shows up again someday.

Hole In The Head

I have read a lot of bad reviews of this comic and I don’t get why. McDaniel’s art doesn’t even bother me like it usually does and the Absence is such a goofy villain that I can’t help but love it. I mean she has a hole in her head and is cutting off body parts of Bruce Wayne’s ex-girlfriends. Hilarious. I can’t help but love it.

Paul Cornell takes over for three issues before Tomasi comes on board here and I’d say Cornell wasn’t kidding when he kept saying in interviews that this wasn’t just filler. The Absence is an interesting new villain and not just because she apparently had a hole in the head but just the idea of looking for what’s missing seems like great story potential. I want to see where this goes. McDaniel’s art seemed different here too…good different. I was pleasantly surprised as I am not his biggest fan but I think he stepped up his game for this book.
