Fun Parts

  • Harper tazers cyber monkey from the inside before it can jab her with a syringe
  • Deacon Blackfire’s badguy power: feeding people drugged Christ wafers and water
Shock the monkey.

Shock the monkey.

Stupid Parts

  • I have no idea what Deacon Blackfire’s plan is or what’s happening in his Arkham basement apartment. Maybe they’d have time to explain if they didn’t give a long flashback of him date raping Batman 3 years ago.
We had the Superman Unchained book, I guess it was only a matter of time before we got the Batman Chained book. 10/10

Paraphrase of the Week

Corrigan: These zombies have us surrounded, but aren’t attacking or advancing, let’s wait a bit and see what happens. We don’t want to get ourselves in a worse situation than we’re already in.
Batwing: I’ve been pretty eager to listen to your wise experience this whole time, but I’m just gonna punch these zombies now.
Corrigan: You’ve damned us both. Probably literally.

Important Parts

  • Tim and Harp convince/threaten Sergei “Monkey Man” Alexandrov to help them with the Gotham nanobot problem
  • Deacon Blackfire succeeds in….possessing a beefcake?…and making zombies into bat-people to cleanse Gotham? . . . he also has Batwing and Corrigan pretty trapped.
