> Colorful but misleading cover. First date was whole focus but a bit slow 'til the battle. Mellowing Batman?! Ms Brackett interlude. Jitter intro.
I liked the issue aswell.
I like these type of stories over the magic and supernatural story of the previous two issues. The best Beechen story i enjoyed was the kidnap story which was very realistic (and displayed Tim at his best; strategic and tactical detective).
At first i didn't really care for the Zoanne character, but this issue did change that in a way.
The Batman appearances were pretty cool too. The way Batman suddenly appeared before the window to signal Tim. That was pretty powerful (you could feel that it freaked out the other people).
And who else thinks that Batman led the supervillain to Tim on purpose (even though he said he didn't)?
The art was also much better than the previous two issues.
