The 52 Book Club: Week Forty-Eight

Hello and welcome to the 52 Book Club, where each week we read an issue of the acclaimed series in celebration of its 15th anniversary!

This week we’ll be reading issue 48, written by the usual gang of Greg Rucka, Grant Morrison, Geoff Johns and Mark Waid, with art breakdowns by Keith Giffen and finishes by Darick Robertson. This story also features a Secret Origins back up featuring the Birds of Prey, written by Waid and art by Nicola Scott.

Renee Montoya and Nightwing ravage the Gotham Underground in search of Batwoman and the Religion of Crime before it’s too late. With time running out, Renee must embrace her destiny and pick up a fallen mantle!

Looking forward to discussing this issue with you all! :smiley:


This whole Intergang fight seems above Renee and Dick’s level, but they rise to the occasion. The cliffhanger ending with Black Adam doesn’t bode well.
