Welcome To Gotham Two Where The Rich Aren't Even People – Batman #108

DC Comics published Batman #108, with James Tynion IV, Jorge Jimenez and Tomeu Morey providing one of the best-looking superhero comic books on the stand right now. Not that you'll see Batman in the suit this week, he's a couple of levels deeper into disguises as he meets up with Miracle Molly, who has been running a bunch of urban tech terrorists, The Unsanity Collective, under a Mr Wyze, causing panic across Gotham.

You just have to look… up.

But that's the problem with Robin Hoods. They don't fit into the usual neo-con status quo that superheroes whatever their stripes seem to want to maintain.
