    The timeline seems strange to me here.

    Arkham Knight is around twenty, but somehow Harley Quinn, the Joker and in fact the whole Batman rogue gallery was already in Arkham before she was born ? Doesn't it make Batman around 50, same with Joker, Harvey and even Harley then ?

    Harley has aged very well it seems.

    I hope this continues giving us the Batman and Robin duo and Tomasi also mentioned that Nightwing will be in his run [as soon as the Ric rubbish is overI'm guessing]

    I've enjoyed the limited time Peter J Tomasi's been on this book to quite a chunk of Tom King's three year run on Batman.

    Great issue.
    Solid background story, didn't expect it to be this good lol.
    Favourite DC heroes: Flash (Wally West), Red Hood (Jason Todd), Batman.

    Agreed. Astrid's Backstory is great and touching.

    Really enjoying Tomasi's Batman. Legit LOL at the barb by Damian Wayne and Batman's reaction to it. Can't be the only one?

    Tomasi has been a Godsend to the Bat Books. I hope he keeps to his word and gives us more of the detective side of Bats.

    I was unsure how I felt about the AK but the more I read the more I like her. I particularly like her back story

    Agreed. She's even on the good side with some of Gotham's most notorious, somehow, without being evil. A very interesting character.

    I take back my previous disappointment over the Arkham Knight's identity. That backstory was perfect. This issue was perfect (But Good Lord, how old is Harley supposed to be?). Figures it would be Tomasi who'd swoop in and save the day just as I was this close to abandoning DC comics.

    I do wonder how differently things would have been, had Jeremiah told Astrid the truth. At that point it seems like she was already too far gone for it to matter. But I'm curious if that would have made any difference.

    I got to say my heart nearly stopped when I saw that batarang hit.
