  1. That really is an interesting idea for a storyline. To give a villain a possibility to change/rehabilitate. I’m as you know, not as familiar with the DC universe as I am with Marvel but I do know Clayface and always found him a cool character. The art of this series also look seriously awesome! 😃😃This series, besides some of the flaws you pointed out, doesn’t sound half bad at all. Thanks for sharing it!

    1. Yep. It has been explored here and then in the past but not too frequently. This time around it’s even more interesting since Clayface became a fan favourite over the past 5 volumes and now he’s on the edge of that cliff ready to make everyone doubt him again. Thank you for reading, my friend! I appreciate it a lot! 😀

  2. Awesome as always Lashaan, I’m pretty much in agreement on you about this set of issues – there was some predictability but I loved the focus on Clayface (always enjoyed the animated series episodes with him in, voiced by Ron Perlman!) and yep, the annual made up for any shortfalls in the main story.

    Man, I miss Tynion writing Detective Comics (and the Eddy Barrows art) – Peter Tomasi’s run, so far, has not grabbed me as much, although this week’s issue I did enjoy. I look forward to your thoughts on the James Robinson Two-Face story, which I think follows this if I remember correctly?

    1. Thank you, Chris! Hahaha I’m having a hard time disassociating Ron Perlman from his role in Alien: Ressurection after having recently viewed it. But man, it would be fun to see the character being brought to life on the big screen and have Ron Perlman voice him!

      It was because Tynion announced that he passing on the mantle that I had stopped staying up to date (although I was still collecting the issues as they came out). I’m binging through each volume each week to catch up on the run. Well the next volume is the whole ‘Batmen Eternal’ story, not sure yet if the Two-Face story is in this one. I think it’s later though.
