Gotham Girl is still feeling the effects from Psycho Pirate and that, being coupled with the loss of her brother Gotham, has her in a downward spiral. Gotham Girl is lost in her own head, fighting crime and talking to her now deceased brother out loud everywhere she goes. The other problem with Gotham girl fighting crim is thee fact that every time she uses her powers, her lifespan is shortened. Duke is concerned and expresses these feelings to Batman. Batman must now figure out what to do to bring some normalcy to Gotham Girl's life.
I'm a huge fan of what Tom King has done thus far with this Batman series. This issue was interesting due to Batman had to be much more psychological. Not psychological in the traditional detective way, but in a way of dealing with someone who has been impacted emotionally to the point of going mad. The interactions were great and there will be more in upcoming issues I'm sure.
Ivan Reis has quickly become one of my favorite artists. I'm always happy to see his name on the cover as I know the artwork will be stellar. I like when great artists get to work on great books and I hope to see him on a title on a regular basis.
With this story ending, it's time for some new things in the Batman series. Don't wait for the trade paperback if you haven't been following since issue one, go out and start following this series. Issue #7 will actually cross over with Nightwing #5(another good series). There's going to be monsters in it, pick 'em up!
