They say that good things come in pairs, but while today’s featured contestants are one halves of notable relationships, they’re going to need to rely on themselves if they want to overcome their First Round geek match-up and beyond.

- When was it published
- Where can I find it
- Why should I read it
- How much will it cost
So read on to see my breakdown and review of the second part of Morrison’s Batman saga!
