Read full description of the books:
Not too shabby.
The storyline with the League of Smiles was one I'd already read elsewhere, so there wasn't much tension for me with that story. The Joker is running around during his Death of the Family thing, and some assholes decide to take advantage of it.
I'm a bit over the gross psychopaths carving others (and themselves) up in DC, but this was from a while back, so I'm not going to rant. Still...ugh.
There's also a Poison Ivy story, where Batman tries to get her to see the error of her ways. Which works out for him about as well as you might expect...
Ivy is (once again) using her wacky lady powers to seduce men into doing whatever she wants. Unfortunately for her, she may have gone too far this time. She puts the whammy on Clayface, because he's not only super-strong, he's super-gullible.
Does anybody here think this won't backfire on her?
Neither of these stories are all bad or all that great. Still, they were both readable.
Up next is the title story about an new villain (Emperor Penguin) taking all of the old villain's (plain old Penguin) shit.
To me there were some kind of obvious holes in this 'takeover'.
The Joker shows up and takes Penguin to Arkham for the whole thing that happened in Death of the Family, and Penguin leaves his right hand man, Ogilvy, in charge.
So this guy, now calling himself Emperior Penguin, just sort of...locks the door on Cobblepot.
Like, pretend you go to Walmart, and the guy who was fixing your garbage disposal decides to change the locks and squat in your house. Not only that, but he somehow puts the deed to the house in his name, empties out your bank account, and takes over your floating Ice Casino.
I'm just assuming you have an arctic themed casino.
First of all, aren't there safeguards in place to make something like that sort of impossible. Especially if you were semi-famous and fairly recognizable (like the freaking Penguin). I always thought that in order to take ownership of something, the original owner had to actually sign it over to you...usually in the presence of a lawyer.
Then again, this is Gotham.
The only other thing that I thought was odd was that the volume seemed to be all over the place on the timeline. At one point it seems like the Joker is still running loose (before the Death of the Family stuff), then Damien is featured with Batman talking about the DotF thing like it had already happened, then Bruce is crying to Alfred about how Damien is dead.
The volume seems to span quite a bit of time...I guess? It's not a big deal, but I thought it was kind of jarring. It's also possible that I misread or misunderstood things. 'Cause that happens to me quite a bit.
On the whole, I'd say this is a pretty good Batman book.
