8.0 out of 10 - salloria
Jean-Paul gets to LeHah first, and he immediately regrets it as he's showered in a hail of bullets. Bruce and Alfred arrive soon after, and while Alfred tends to Jean-Paul's wounds, Bruce goes after LeHah. Unfortunately, LeHah turns the tables and kidnaps Bruce, and then proceeds to drug and torture him for information on the vast Wayne fortune. Meanwhile, Jean-Paul and Alfred deduce where LeHah's next target is located, and the race is onů

Dennis O'Neil adds a little gas compared to the previous two issues as the storyline picks up speed towards the conclusion. Once again, his characterizations - especially where Alfred is concerned - are pitch perfect, and his overall timing and flow in this issue is an improvement. I believe the fact that O'Neil has taken a lot of the pseudo-religious speak out of the dialogue helps that flow; we'll see if it appears in the fourth and final issue.

Joe Quesada also shows an improvement in the timing and flow of this issue, and the panel layouts are much easier to decipher. His visuals of LeHah are really starting to grow on me, as the character seems to get increasingly creepier as the story progresses, and the scene where LeHah dons the Batman mask - complete with maniacal teeth - is a show stopper. Throw in that last two-page splash and you've got a visually stunning issue.

Each issue seems to get better and better, and since the next issue is the last in the mini-series, hopefully that upward trend will continue.
