Batman and Deadshot are on the run from Amanda Waller and the Suicide Squad (currently consisting of Capt. Boomerang, Harley Quinn, and Capt. Cold). They are trying to rescue Deadshot’s daughter, Zoe, who has been taken by Kobra.
With the Squad getting closer, Batman and Deadshot are trying to get answers from the Kobra gang they ran into. Deadshot kills someone and doesn’t apologize for it, making Batman angry. Deadshot gets mad and starts a fight with him, which is pretty awesome. Batman explains that he’s helping because as a father, Deadshot has to learn to put his child before himself and he can’t kill people because as a parent, he has to be better.
About 3/4 of the way through this issue, we see Harley and the Captains again. They’ve hijacked a helicopter and are getting closer to Batman and Deadshot who make another run for it.
Then we shift over to Zoe. Kobra is determined to destroy her and thus also, destroy Lawton. They bring her down to their lair and force a mask with their crazy snake putting drugs in it. Is this the end of Zoe Lawton?
About the Art:
Okay, I’ma be real with you guys for a second. I loved the art in this one. In particular, the true and honest depiction of Bruce and his parents, which we’ve seen a thousand times. There was something real and raw about the look on his face as his parents are dying beside him. It’s poetic and beautiful, in a tragic way. I loved it. And I loved that I was affected by it. Very well done.
