I find the villain of this one, Scarecrow, to be boring in most instances. Less boring this time out, but not my favorite bad guy for the Dark Knight.

So, we get the origin story Scarecrow, and it's very creepy with his dad being this completely amoral scientist. But the parallels between young Crane and young Wayne I thought were tenuous at best. And then right in teh middle of this is the #0 volume where it is "finally" revealed that the Wayne's were murdered as a crime of opportunity, nothing to do with the Court of Owls or conspiracy, etc.
Also, New 52 was supposed to be a full reboot, and I have mentioned in another review that Batwoman depends on reading the Elegy storyline that takes place a year or so before New 52, well, this book depends on an older storyline as well, namely the events of the Killing Joke and Batman's guilt for Barbara getting shot and being paralyzed from the waist down...made more confusing because I know the Batgirl series is starring a very mobile Barbara Gordon...

A narrativa podia e devia ser mais densa e menos elementar, mesmo que bastas vezes colmatadas tais lacunas por uma arte que merecia melhor base de desenvolvimento.
Aliás, não fosse a arte e ficar-me-ia pelo singelo-enjoado «it was ok». ( )
