It's an anthology, so of course it's a mixed bag, both from an art and story perspective. There are some really outstanding stories here. Paul Dini's "Case Study", the first story in the collection, is a nice and perceptive look at Joker's psychology, painting him as someone completely sane, possibly even hyper-sane, who uses the trappings of insanity as a mask. Howard Chaykin's "Blackout" took me surprise. It's set in the 40s and co-stars Catwoman, and surprised me by being an honestly good period piece. Most of the other pieces are decent reads, though there are a few clunkers. I very much could have done without "Batsman" or "Snow Job", and "The Black and White Bandit" is almost painfully forgettable. But there's more than enough good here to make this a worthwhile read, for Batman fans.
