The cover looks awesome! Jason Fabok captures what makes comic book characters larger than life without going over the top or cramming a lot of action into the picture. Scot Eaton's work on the books interior also has a sleek look to it and really makes every blow look like it has weight behind it.
Why wasn't this issue #1? The story continues very little in this issue as a lot of time is spent having Bane give Cobb a tour of Gotham and let him and by proxy us know what has been going on. Had this been issue one it would have been a positive, but as it is issue #4 it seems thrown in to get people who haven't read the book up to speed and really does little for loyal readers of the book. There are some odd characterizations in this book, particularly the subservient Cobb, that seem to contradict established canon.
If you want to see Batman's villains crack each other's skulls then this is the comic for you. Very thin on plot, heavy on action, exposition, and sleek art. This book is recommended for anyone looking to get into this series or those who just enjoy good action. People determined to have the entire series and loyal fans will no doubt buy this issue, but they will most likely be very disappointed with the lack of forward momentum this book has.
