Oswald Cobblepot has a plan. No longer content with merely being the crime lord the Penguin, he yearns for the love of Gotham City. All he has to do is call a hit on Bruce Wayne, and in one night, the Penguin goes from notorious criminal to beloved savior of Gotham. Everything is going exactly according to plan.

But when chaos strikes, even the best plan crumbles. And when Joker returns to Gotham, chaos comes with him.

Now, with Penguin temporarily out of commission and Batman busy trying to stop Poison Ivy and a group of Joker-obsessed maniacs, a new threat creeps in from the sidelines. He calls himself Emperor Penguin. He's everything Penguin was and more. And he's bad news for Batman...and very bad news for Oswald Cobblepot.

The art is not only great, it is perfectly adapted for the grim world of the Dark Knight, and the stories were excellent. The creative team has done everything right on DC's flagship character.

A new creative team for the book takes things in a different direction as the Penguin gets betrayed from within his own organization and a new player rises up against him. Layman and Fabok take on the reins of the book in a good fashion, driving the story forward in a way that fits the characters.

This third volume of the New-52's Detective Comics switches up the writer and artist and introduces a new threat to Batman's Rogues Gallery. A very solid read by newcomers to Batman, Layman & Fabok.
