Glass brings in something I don’t think I realized the comic was missing–the Jim Gordon character. Some kind of person for Furious to have a conversation with about things, even if it’s brief.
It totally changes the tone of the comic, though the plot for the issue also changes things up a bit. Furious attends a press conference in her honor–the idea is to appeal to the public–while the villain is out there causing lots of trouble still. Glass starts to explain the villain, but the full resolution is undoubtedly next issue. Hopefully after the hard cliffhanger gets a resolution.
So it’s kind of a talking heads book with this cop talking Furious down while she’s trying to beat a confession out of someone. Then there’s a lot of talking at the news conference. It doesn’t feel bridging though, Glass is still building story with the scenes.
