Tom King has written some great Batman stories, and a few pretty bad ones. Thankfully, this is a good one.

I’ve read a bunch of Riddler origin stories. This is about as good as any of them. It might be the most complex. Which considering the lead character, isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

And of course, Mitch Gerads delivers. He and King almost always do.

Incidentally, Riddler has a teacher in this book that looks a lot like a West Wing-age Bradley Whitford with a mustache.
