Read full description of the books:
This, the second half of Grendel's tangle with Batman, is even more fun in the resolution than the first was in the set-up. We get to see Hunter Rose really cut loose with some bloodthirsty sport against Gotham's finest, get to see Grendel's corrupt snares enclose the necks of a number of unwilling characters (including our two female leads), witness some wonderful contrasts that again point out how close Hunter and Bruce really are (despite being on opposing sides), and get a thrilling rooftop fight and rescue from which one poor individual does not return, and from which Grendel's arrogant peace of mind and self-assured swagger does not survive unscathed either (what *nearly* transpires is perhaps more wounding to him - that he could have been the cause of it - than what actually does - broken bones can heal and masks can be replaced, after all). What's well-done here is the humbling that Hunter undergoes as his gamesman approach to crime is tested and found wanting against Bruce Wayne's serious and sober determination and mettle.
Both close fights, BTW, were well worth waiting for - the sparring on the rooftop, told in a tiled tier of tiny panels, is particularly nice, especially the repeated "hold" moment of three panels where the opponents, mid-fight, wait and size each other up before resuming the match, to the uncompromising defeat of one.
Bruce's inability, as Batman, to deal with justifiably upset women is also nicely contrasted with Hunter's cruel suavity and manipulation. The drawbacks of being the good guy perhaps.
This is one fine read!
