Gabrych, Woods and Smith continue their story of family troubles and mob manipulations in Detective 793 (June 2004).
Below the rubble of the building, Batman finds Leslie, L’Shea and the still-dying girl, now with the baby delivered.
There is no clear way out, but a small passage that Batman has opened. L’Shea crawls out with the baby, her grand-child. It’s really not clear if she will take the baby to the hospital, or just dump it and run. Batman and Leslie stay with the mother until she dies.
Batman hunts down Mr. Freeze, unplugging him and quickly removing him from the picture.
The story ends as Bruce and Leslie take a walk through the rarely-seen gardens surrounding Wayne Manor. L’Shea did get the child t safety – and to the media, where she spun a story of delivering the child herself and earned the monicker Miracle Mom. Bruce and Leslie are neither impressed nor surprised, but have also found more understanding between themselves.
Liberman, Dziakowski and Green get things set up for the finale of The Tailor, coming in the next issue.
Each page of this story shows the Tailor getting prepped for the coming fight, and along the bottom, his three former team-mates approaching Gotham, as the mileage signs mark the distance.
The story concludes next issue.
