After the stunning issue from last month involving Tim Drake taking a shot for the team and getting to pretend he’s disabled, we find Tim continuing down his list of targets to Anarky.
Now, the comic did a decent job reviewing Tim’s previous history of himself versus Anarky, but I still feel like there was a lot of back history needed to fully enjoy this issue. This may just be a case of Fabian Nicieza relying too heavily on the previous series. Nevertheless, my sister, who I got into the Tim Drake craze, told me that she even had a few problems following the comic since she has never read the Robin series.
However, Marcus To and Ray McCarthy do a great job on art. Once again, they seem to be really excelling as an art team. Plus, I enjoyed the slight tweaks on Anarky’s design.
Despite the backstory, the plot of the comic still remains highly enjoyable, but, after last issue, was a little bit of a disappointment. The art held it together, though. I feel like this issue was a slight, unnecessary pit stop to next issue. It felt more like a one-shot with some ties to the series than part of the overarching story. So, we’ll see if the series gets back on track next issue.
