Batman finds himself drawn further into a world of Celtic myth and supernatural mysteries as Wonder Woman calls on the Dark Knight Detective to investigate the murder of a once-powerful Irish god. In a world where the normal rules of investigation don’t apply and any clue can be obscured by charms and magic, the two Justice Leaguers must rely on each other to unlock a murder someone is trying to hide.
The story, so far, seems like a “fish out of water” situation for not only Batman, but Wonder Woman as well, even though she has some experience with deities. Fans also get to see Batman as magic takes over his mind, something quite disconcerting to watch considering the character’s strength of will.
As the death of the one Irish God who united this world weighs heavy on the two warring sides, the conspiracy starts to bubble to the surface.
Also, the way Sharp draws all these characters continue to astonish, as it is very lush and vivid.
This isn’t even really a negative, but the character of Patrick O’Schull, is probably the most mysterious character thus far in this book. His insertion into the story proves he is pivotal, and Sharp slowly gives the readers clues, but not enough to put anything together.
This is a must buy, as the story is about to see our Justice Leaguers go on a journey we have not seen them before.
