One thought on “NML Crossing, Episode 064 – Azrael: Agent of the Bat #52 (1999)

  • I hope that they got the desired sales bump by putting the No Man’s Land trade dress on this issue. This adds nothing to the No Man’s Land story and only continues to beat the dead horse of Nicholas Scratch. Maybe we can finally get his motivation for wanting Gotham turned into a No Man’s Land now that he is there.

    You mentioned the bizarre shift in dynamics between the mother and daughter, but the No Man’s Landers that attacked Scratch had just as bizarre a turn in motivation. It seems that every normal person in this issue is kind of two faced. Strange that Azrael is the most normal person in this story.
