Batman: Detective Comics, Volume 3: League of Shadows: 01/24/23
Batman: Detective Comics, Volume 3: League of Shadows by James Tynion IV (2017) focuses on Cassandra Cain's dark past. It's a melodrama fest.
I really dislike how comics pull this shit on female characters. There are plenty of male characters already with messed up backstories. Cassandra Cain's, though, seems to take the typical male story and turn it up to eleven.
So volume three is grimmer and darker and angstier than the previous two combined. Cain and Supergirl should sit down for tea or maybe a few stiff drinks and compare notes. Her story is just as unnecessarily dark and incoherent as Supergirl: The Girl of Steel (2005). I guess once a decade or so, it's time to torture another female character for teh dramaz.
The fourth volume is Batman: Detective Comics, Volume 4: Deus Ex Machina (2017).
