    Not exactly what I was thinking, but I actually think JPV would make a good boyfriend, at least when he's stable. Dude's a sweetie.

    Back in his solo series, I was hoping he'd win over Babs. Though I was still satisfied with how that subplot was resolved, especially now that I can relate to it.

    You're right, this IS day time! And they're active!

    THIS IS BLASPHEMY! Everyone knows that only Batman's closest ally, The Signal, is capable of handling the far more dangerous daytime of Gotham.

    Another complication is that Steph has her full mask, which she didn't get until the end of TVS.

    Maybe the Bensons don't follow 'Tec and just assumed what the team was, with their only knowledge being the often brought up "TIM IS GONE", and NO ONE in the creative process pointed out the error. It sounds unlikely but hey, this IS DC.

    I dunno, because they know that Steph is rocky with the rest of them now based on interviews.

    I mean, that's possible, but the Bensons usually seem pretty up on continuity.

    Maybe Steph was also looking for Riddler, and just ended up in the same trap or just reluctantly worked with Batman and his team to help get the job done.

    Azreal and Batwing could easily be explained not being their. I assume Barbara would have told Bruce Canary and Huntrees are out of town so keeping some people back for other crimes or emergencies is probably smart

    Isn't this the arc where all the men of Gotham are struck by a mystery illness?

    Azrael is probably still healing - he was in a wheelchair last we saw - and Batwing always has tons of stuff to do - playing catch with Rookie, giving Rookie a cool new paint job, hanging with Tam and Tiffany and his folks...

    Oh, wait, that's just my daydreams.

    I will say that though the Bensons are pretty solid on continuity, as previously mentioned, their editorial seems to not be very careful - they've consistently let word balloon misplacement/misattribution and coloring errors confusing Babs and Dinah slip through.

    I like the idea that Steph and the team stumbled onto the same problem. Hopefully this week's Tec leaves them in a place where she's more ready to work with Batman and her friends.

    I was thinking about it last night and basically got this same thing.

    Well this issue was a whole lot of nothing. Did they mention Helena going to teach before, cause I honestly can't recall if they did. Also, her skin tone coloring was all over the place. Overall this book seems to content to stay mediocre and continues to sell poorly. At least the art was okay.

    Yes, they've been seeding references to Helena teaching for the past 6 issues (after the first arc). I was disappointed that we didn't see more of Helena actually teaching and forming relationships to her students. It was nice seeing her drag Black Canary into her world, but it felt so inconsequential.

    I do feel quite sad that the book hasn't gotten significantly better - I thought it was fun - dumb fun, but fun - in the beginning, and still enjoy it on a very superficial level, but this was one of my first comics loves, and seeing it be so shallow makes me sad.

    I feel silly for not remembering that, but I guess its like you said. I actually was expecting them to show her teaching or something. I was literally waiting on them showing her first day, especially after moving from teaching at as a spy.

    I'm just glad we got Helena being pretty cool in Nightwing. I hope that she gets some good stuff to do as a leader of all the young vigilantes in the upcoming Manslaughter arc.

    So I guess Batman never fought Deacon Blackfire before...? But didn't the Eternals confirm he did ?

    Catwoman and Ivy coming into assist Batgirl like this just felt so weird. Just the whole dynamic and having them be on the team like this just feels off to me.

    I know there was a lot of them but a thug getting the drop on Selina and smashing her goggles? Poor form Catwoman .

    The art was okay.
