State of Shock
I'm just doing a super short review since I'm so far behind on reviews.
I haven't enjoyed the Warth arc so far in Detective Comics, so I was not expecting much from this issue. When I heard Layman say that he pulled out all the stops and just went crazy with action in this issue, I mentally rolled my eyes figuring he had just phoned in the issue. However, I found this story to be a surprisingly invigorating read. Layman didn't lie when he said he simply went for broke and threw in a bunch of awesome set piece moments. Coupling Layman's cool ideas with Fabok's pencils and colors that seemed less drab than the past two issues went a long way towards redeeming the arc.
The plot was still not great. (Spoilers) Why did Wrath leave an off switch to his trap? Why did it take six minutes for the devices to kill the police officers? Doesn't Wrath know he should password protect his computer? Everybody has a freakin' password on their smart phones for crying out loud!
Despite this, the cool action did a lot to mitigate these faults.
