Somewhat underwhelming, but not terrible. The story revolves around attempts to fill the power vacuum in Gotham's organized crime scene. There are many contenders, but it comes down to a standoff between Tobias Whale (not familiar with him) and "legitimate businessman" Penguin. Personally, I like seeing Penguin in his Iceberg Lounge. I think it suits his character better than attempting to steal bird-themed items. I also liked the few scenes with the reformed Riddler. Both of these guys are smart enough to realize that in Gotham, crime doesn't pay, but merchandise does. There's a subplot about the Suicide Squad taking supercriminals out of Gotham, but that's really just a lead in for the JLA storyline, Salvation Run. Luckily, that's next on my list. The art is good enough that I can't really complain. Still not a great book, but it's decent.
