After the hot garbage that was 23.1, I was not expecting much. Maybe that’s why I liked this issue or maybe it was just a good issue. The Riddler is the star of this issue and damn does he make a good impression. Taking place during the events of Forever Evil, this issue shows us what Nygma does best. This was a seriously sadistic and brutal Riddler, something I have never seen from this character before. I was very surprised by this issue, probably the best one-and-done Riddler story I have ever read. Loved the riddles in the beginning and how they played out in the story. One of the best point issues I have read so far. My only complaint is at the end of the issue it says “continued in Batman # 25 Zero Year”, how the hell is that supposed to happen if this took place during Forever Evil. That one gripe aside, a fantastic issue, definitely worth your $2.99 (unless you can find a 3D copy for $3.99).
