The Bane of the City?

Well Villain's Month all led up to this.  The Villain's of Batman have taken over the city of Gotham, and have taken sections of it for themselves.  Oh but Banes back in town.  

Explain It!:

We've got Professor Pyg, Scarecrow, Penguin, oh my.  Bane has broken into Black Gate Prison on a mission.  The inmates all want to claim it for themselves, but it doesn't look like they can keep it.  Once Bane makes everyone realize that standing against him is a bad idea.  They show him what he's looking for.  A secret cell block where all the frozen Talons are being held.  Looks like Bane is going to try to control the Talons and use his own military to take full control of the city.

Penguin is now acting Mayor, and is less than delighted to find out that Scarecrow, and the rest of the Villains aren't controlling their areas the way he feels they should.  Crazy.  So Penguin to prove a point decides to take a note from The Dark Knight Rises and blows all the bridges leading to Gotham.  So it looks like Bane, The Villains, and the GCPD are going to hunker down for the long hall, as the Arkham War begins.

Bits and Pieces:

This issue is just chock full of fun.  We're given Batman's Villains O' Plenty, and I can't image how this will all play out.  The artwork is beautiful, and this is the best Bane I've seen in the New 52.  Now this being a set up issue, I don't expect a lot, but the set up kept me entertained the entire time.  I love Tomasi's writing, and I hope he continues for the entire series.  Go check this out.  Any fan of DC will enjoy it, and Any fan of Batman will love it.
