Kicking ass with brawn and class! With brutality and sass, they break the black mass, and boy do they have the brass for the task! It's the team up that, frankly, I never would have thought of wanting! In this thirty-first issue of DC's weekly Batman happening, Alfred Pennyworth fights his way from out of the wreckage of Arkham Asylum with the help of the masked beefcake Bane, who, despite not actually being very insane, was being housed at Arkham, probably for the safety of other prisoners (I think it's that case for a number of Batman foes). Meanwhile, Hush brings the hurt to Spoiler and Batman develops a rapport with Julia. This issue does a great job making up for that lackluster previous one.
