This issue ENDS on a cliffhanger that can best be described in two words ‘”oh *#@!” a brilliant ending and fantastic artwork for the final page (and all through the book obvs)

I’m getting ahead of myself though as loads happen before the final page with Red Hood befriending Bizarro, Black Mask opening up and confiding in Jason before revealing another ‘secret’ he knows and Artemis finally finding the location of the Bow of Ra.

I’m really liking the dynamics of these characters with Jason and Artemis still finding time to have little digs at each other while he gets beating from Bizarro but when push comes to shove she was away to step in and help before Jason managed to get through and calm Bizarro down.

As Black Mask confides in Jason he realizes more and more how similar they are and with their history and also some of their views on how crime should be handled, even though Jason is there undercover to take him down you start to wonder if he may get sucked in a little too far.

It looks as though Artemis has gone off on her own to find the Bow of Ra but hopefully she and her MASSIVE Axe will cross paths with Red Hood again and they join up to combat Black Masks biggest weapon yet

Boxes are filling and thanks to the digital age we live in so is the harddrive! I love finding a new comic to obsess over and rediscovering old comics to immerse myself in from the very first issue.
