It’s Nightwing versus Psycho-Pirate in the grand finale of “Shadows of the Bat” act two of three! As Gotham’s elite gather to celebrate the formal opening of Arkham Tower, Dr. Wear’s secret weapon is more unhinged than ever, and the storm clouds of disaster gather above the city’s monument to reform! The Party Crashers, the Bat-Family, Penguin’s forces, and a tower full of innocent civilians and villainous patients converge in the chapter you’ll need to see to believe! Spoiler alert: not everyone makes it out alive!

Every story has two sides, and as much as Batman has reached out his hand through the darkness to try to help the Boy, there are too many hands in the shadows of Gotham pulling in the other direction. The finale of act two of “House of Gotham” poses a stark choice: Live with the family you know, or betray everything you’ve learned to be true?

The underground has been compromised, but Team Batman was able to repel the attackers easily.

Elsewhere, the Penguin calls Dr. Wear to tell him that the time’s up and he wants his money.

Nightwing is battling Psycho-Pirate who has a strong hold on him until Penguin’s forces enter Arkham Tower.

His hold over everyone in Arkham Tower breaks…

…as Dr. Wear opens the Tower formally.

Chaos ensues as Psycho-Pirate’s hold breaks…

…the heroes are under siege as…

…Dr. Wear’s life is threatened!

The back-up features the same young boy as previous issues as well as a cameo by Anarky as the Azrael Batman and Tim Drake Robin argue over that young boy.

Things get tragic fast.

The Pulse:

Another intriguing main story issue as the chaos finally erupts. Decent art too. The back-up was ok and it was nice seeing Anarky, Robin and AzBats again. Ok art too. 7 out of 10.
