After a really weird issue featuring duffle-bagged Lady Clayface, we get back to the murder of Sarah Worth, with the addition of the murder of neighbor Lydia. But there's more! Other people from the neighborhood are popping up dead with worms coming out of their eyes, kind of like this is a crossover from Hill House's Plunge.

Yeah, so there's some parasite now going around Gotham out of nowhere aaaaaaand somehow they suspect it has to do with Sarah Worth? And Mary Knox from the Huntress backups? I dunno. That doesn't make sense to me.

Something is going on with my reader tonight, it keeps getting locked up so I can't go to the next page for some reason, so I'm not going to go into great detail. But basically, Bruce is being accused of murdering Sarah Worth and now his neighbor Lydia. Huntress and Foggy try to get him out of jail but he demands on serving his full term.

Wait... is that Daredevil? That's Daredevil. My life has been so messed up lately everything is blending together. I'm a mess. I've been drinking milk right from the carton and putting it back empty. Don't mess with me, I'm wild and going off the rails.

There is a funny part where Bruce is asked about an alibi and he says he has one but needs his phone to even remember her name. Heh. Anyways, while Bruce is being interrogated Mr. Worth comes storming into Nakano's office demanding answers! He's heard about Bruce being spotted with his daughter Sarah AFTER her death and he's piiiiiisssseed! The dude is huge, too.

Nakano blows him off so Worth goes... and... blows up... a police station??? He RPG's a police station! It all collapses! Everybody inside is clearly DEAD! Except for Bruce who was in a cell! What the actual $%^&????? Bruce escapes and is able to lure Worth into the sewer and get dressed up as Bats so we have a final page of Batman clocking Worth in the face but... WTF????

Bits and Pieces

Although I do miss Mora on art, the art is still excellent. For the story, I don't know whether to love Mr. Worth for being such a psycho or not because a man born into money and who has everything he's ever wanted would not go and do that himself. I do like the idea of Bruce being under investigation for murder in a new community that he's found, but it's been poorly executed the last few issues. And the parasite thing seems unnecessary.
