The Alfred nightmare scene is heartbreaking, and terrifying! I miss him so much, so this really hurt to see. I cannot wait to get my hands on this issue, and read James Tynion’s dialogue! While this art is stunning, it’s only telling us half the story.

What about everyone out there? Are you all excited for “Joker War”? Are you missing Alfred as much as I am? Please let us know your thoughts, and leave us your comments.
