So…

An awesome issue by writer Dan Jurgens and artist Bernard Chang. I miss an older Tim Drake as the lead, but I like the classic Batman Beyond lore returning. The twist with the original Joker is compelling and the mystery around where is Brice Wayne looms large without any real references. A solid 9 out 10.
