AzBat patrols the city and broots while recapping Abattoir’s escape, before we go to Graham’s father, who is in prison in Blackgate, speaking to his lawyer about putting a contract on Abattoir – not because he’s worried about his son, but because he’s worried about the trust that his son is trustee of.

Elsewhere, in a Gotham tough guy bar, Ballistic goes in, hands the bartender his business card, and says he’s up for some contract work. Elsewhere, 3 knuckle-headed former musicians turned leg-breakers (with mannerisms like the Three, and a leader who is inspired, visually, by Iggy Pop), are learning about the open contract, and these 3 “Stooges”, if you will, decide to go after the contract.

Get it? Because Iggy Pop’s band was called The Stooges? Get it?!

Back with Ballistic – he gets a call about the contract, while AzBat shakes down the associates of Abattoir’s known associates – all while we have vignettes as to what Commissioner Gordon, Bruce & Alfred, and Tim are up to.

Ultimately, AzBat, the Stooges, and Ballistic track Abattoir’s associates to a fence as the issue ends.
