A pretty solid story about the building of Gotham (something Snyder is apparently super interested in, since the Court of Owls dealt a lot with this, as well), this alternates between late 19th Century Gotham and current day Gotham. Dick Grayson as Batman, while not as awesome as Bruce Wayne, has to defend the city against The Architect. The big bad's costume is very obviously influenced by the recent steampunk resurgence, and I did really like the design (and the reasoning behind why he's gone rogue).

There was unfortunately too much Damian Wayne in here (see: more than one panel, and he had more than one bubble of dialogue), but overall quite enjoyable.
