This issue is just dumb. Nothing happens. Bao, I mean Clownhunter tries to kill Harley but can't because of the power of love. Harley says sure I killed a lot of people and destroyed your life, but oppsie and I absolutely deserve to walk free because I'm a victim, and you're a victim and those dozens of people you brutally killed using psychotic methods totally had it coming.

Shadowkiller or Ghostslaughter or whatever, maintains caring about people will get Bruce killed. He says it hasn't so far. But caring about people Bruce's way sure has gotten a lot of other people killed. I am talking about thousands. Thanks to DC's love of body counts, letting the Joker live means thousands of innoncent people die every year because of Batman. I don't think that's the message DC wants to give, but that's what they're doing.

The action is stupid. I mean just stupid. Clownkiller, who hasn't hestitated to kill nameless victims, has a sword over Harley's neck. He just holds it there giving Bruce time to literally break his bonds, grab a batarang from his belt that Ghoststabber left on his body while tying him up. Bruce is able to throw the batarang to Harley, she catches it and then gets into a defensive position and talks about the healing power of forgiveness. Clownpiethrower breaks down and everybody hugs and it's cake for everyone.

All this action has to take time, yet Clownboy just holds the the sword over Harley's neck.

Even Ghost boy says he did everything he did to prove a point to Bruce. Which is what the Joker did in The Dark Knight. Bruce says I need help, I am getting older and don't have billions and Alfred is gone and Catwoman left me and my pickup truck has a flat and my dog died. So I could use help just don't kill anyone. Apparently, torture and planting evidence and crippling people is OK, just don't kill.

This issue is bad for so many reasons. Pacing is SOOO SSLLOOWW. Characters act out of character. A kid who has KILLED dozens brutally just changes. That's not the way things work. Harley is not nuts. She just shrugs off stuff and is sane. That's not Harley. Ghostkisser really just wants something and agrees to work with Bruce. Bruce really lets mass murderers off the hook with a hug. He says he needs help despite the fact that he's got more allies than ever. What with Spoiler and Cass as Batgirls (an ideal I really like - see I can be positive and enthusiastic), a couple of Robins, Nightwing, Huntress, Oracle and maybe Catwoman and her crew.

Why does Bruce need one more ally. He talks about reduced resources, but I don't see it. He says he doesn't have allies in government, but the Commish is still his friend.

This issue is saying things that aren't true and I really dislike all these mass murderers getting left off the hook. I am for rehabilitation, but murder is something else. Prison is also for punishment and these killers have been left off the hook.

The art was nice, but the action was nothing.

Or I could be wrong.
