Gotham City Sirens #2

Wow. So Talia Al Ghul taught Catwoman secret mystic mental defenses to protect Batman's identity should he die? That is one convenient and ridiculous way to get out from last issue's cliffhanger. Heck, Catwoman should have just had some "Keep Secret ID Spray" in her belt. After accepting that dozens of men have been the Batman, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn make friends with Catwoman and get back to their regular lives. Harley gets bored, and when she gets bored, she goes shopping. I'm happy to see her react in such a womanly fashion (sarcasm). In fact, other than the off-handed comment Harley makes about what she considered Batman's motivations, this didn't have a whole lot to it. Hush is still pretending to be Bruce Wayne, and after being kidnapped he links up with Harley and plans to use her to get to Catwoman. This picks up from Streets of Gotham, which I haven't been loving either, so the Hush storyline in particular doesn't have a lot to get excited about.

Guillem March continues to mix hot pin-up shots and awkward storytelling. I think he's a great cover artist for cheesecake, but I'm not as big a fan of his sequential interiors.
