Wait, what was the name of this series again?
If this were a Riddler book or a Batman book, I would easily give this issue 5 stars. But this is the Gotham City Sirens; who are almost absent the entire book. The book was such a divergence that I kept wondering when the girls were going to arrive. And that's a shame because being in Edward Nygma's brain is awesome. To see his thought process as he works as a detective (huh? then again, I've been away from comics for >10 years) as compared to Batman's is awesome. It's also pretty awesome to see that he realizes the man in the Bat suit is not the one he's faced before. (Not a spoiler if you pay attention to the thought boxes in the first page) And that makes sense. I know that comic books are constantly retconning and repeating past events and you can never really be sure how much time has passed, but we expect these characters to have faced off so often to really know each other. Especially when it comes to a genius like Nygma. I definitely want to know what happens with his story arc - does he remain good or does he return to villianhood. Will that be explored here or is it just a crossover in the vast DC Comics universe? Anyway, a poor GCS book, but a great Riddler book.
