Steph: "Quick introduction. I'm Robin. And you're screwed."
The new Dynamic Duo takes to the streets in their creepiest adventure yet! Batman and the new Robin face off against the man who may be the sickest psychopath in the DCU: Mr. Zsasz! Can they stop him from slicing and dicing the citizenry of fair Gotham? And in the backup, Part 2 of "Polished Stone" written by Andersen Gabrych with art by newcomer Brad Walker & Troy Nixey! To gain credibility with his people, Orpheus must take down the only man with more power on the streets: Batman!
Summary of Stephness: Stephanie, as Robin, assists Batman in taking down one of the most vicious villains he has ever faced - Victor Zsasz.
Behind the Scenes: A decent issue, though frustrating that Steph apparently hasn't learned from her early days with Robin about killing evildoers (Robin #35). Willingham picks up on this inconsistently injected thread during War Games during her final fight with Black Mask.
Comics legend Tim Sale provided an energetic cover with Steph as Robin.
