Synopsis :

When Brian learns that the Grey Abbot has been taken to Arkham Asylum, he suggests breaking him out so that they can learn from him about things that may be beneficial to the world as a whole. Jean-Paul seeks permission from Batman, but Batman tells him that should any one leave Arkham's walls he would be in big trouble. Azrael makes an entrance but in the process sets off the fire alarms and releases the prisoners. He finds the Abbot and gets seriously beaten by Charles. The Joker steals his clothes and Azrael is left in a pair of black briefs

Review :

An entertaining narration of the events leading up to the Abbot's incarceration by Brian is but a sample of the snappy dialogue to be found in this issue. For a monster Charles is pretty eloquent and I'm not sure I've ever seen The Joker doing one liners like this, his jokes are actually funny. For example the Joker asks Two-Face how he hid his coin from the guards, the method is hinted at, but not printed because this is a code approved comic, and the mental images it conjures up are hilarious. Besides good dialogue this issue has Barry's usual high standard of pencils James' great inks and Demitrious' incomparable colouring, it's both consistant and high definition. Possibly the most major item to be found in this issue is Lilhy's changed hairstyle and forceful nature.

Rant :

Definately a feeling of a story that's a filler, even with the skillful story telling present. I just loved the dialogue but LILHY CHANGED HER HAIR! This is incredebly important the previous big hair was cool it defied graity and had "bounce", sure it looked like Humberto Ramos was the sylist but it was incredibly good looking. What's with the change , she still has that affinity for skin tight clothes but no longer produces monster drain clogs. This Lilhy with a haircut is a very differant person, she's manipulative and bossy, it must be using all that expensive conditioner that's done it.
