And trust me, that's high praise.
The story has Batman trying to move Two-Face out of the city - but an army of super-villains are standing in his way, so they must fight their way past some of the most powerful, fearsome and generally gruesome villains in Batman's Rouges' Gallery.
It's a fast-paced, high-energy series packed with amazing art by John Romita, Jr., and a multi-layered script by Scott Snyder.
As always, Snyder often goes a bit too far - so we see even Batman's closest allies turning on him, thanks to a blackmail threat.
It would be nice to think that the good guys could resist that sort of thing, but we'll see where the story is going before rendering final judgment.
