SPOILER WARNING!: Reveal
Boosterrific Review: I was all set to hate this, but it's really not so bad. It reminds me of some of the Bronze Age comics released during the DC explosion of the late 70s (like THE SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS) with so much villain-on-villain crime that no one wins. The worst part isn't the story or art but the speech balloons for The Batman Who Laughs, which make his text hard to read.
Boosterrific Rating: Gold Standard.
