OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS: Tommy Elliot's life-and-death experience in the present sheds light on some interesting secrets about Thomas and Martha Wayne in the past. What is the mysterious connection? Guest-starring Catwoman! And in the new Two-Face co-feature, Harvey Dent faces off against the Falcone family. Will any of them survive the encounter?

Are you kidding me, DC Comics? Are you serious?!

On DC's own website, they have this to say about STREETS OF GOTHAM #15...

"Tommy Elliot's life-and-death experience in the present sheds light on some interesting secrets about Thomas and Martha Wayne in the past. What is the mysterious connection? Guest-starring Catwoman! And in the new Two-Face co-feature, Harvey Dent faces off against the Falcone family. Will any of them survive the encounter?"

So I went to the comic shop yesterday and grudgingly paid my $3.99, even though DC screwed me last month with only 12 pages of Paul Dini's HEART OF HUSH sequel and 18 pages of an awful Two-Face "backup" (by Ivan Brandon and Ramon Bachs) that shouldn't be called a "backup" when it's longer than the main story.

Anyway, I opened issue #15, which began with the Two-Face story. And I thought to myself, "Huh, that's weird. Maybe they've swapped it around so that that Hush story is now the backup." So I kept flipping pages ... and ... there was no Hush story. Nothing at all. No Tommy Elliot. No Thomas and Martha Wayne. No Catwoman. Certainly no Batman.

So instead of last month's 12 pages of Hush and 18 pages of Two-Face, this month we only get 27 pages of Two-Face.

And it's still $3.99!

Easily the worst $3.99 I've spent on a comic book in 2010.
