Robinson, Kirk, Clarke and Faucher deliver chapter 5 of Face to Face in Detective 819 (July 2006).
Orca, one of Batman’s more recent enemies, has gone missing, and the police and Batman believe her to be a possible victim of whoever is killing the villains. They go into the sewers to hunt for her. But the sewers are Croc’s territory, and Batman has to handle him first.
Batman does find Orca as well. Dead, with two bullets to the head.
As all evidence continues to point to Harvey, even he begins to doubt himself. More dangerously, he begins to talk to himself. Or more specifically, to his other face, as he can now see Two-Face in the mirror.
The story continues in the next issue of Batman.
Jason Bard’s story once again builds directly out of the events in the Batman story from this issue, and once again has the same creative team.
Jason goes to question Orca’s husband. The story gives an unusual glimpse into the everyday life of a Batman villain, and her significant other. It’s all so downplayed and normal, which makes the man’s comments about how Firebig makes a good cup of coffee all the funnier.
More significantly, Jason learns that Orca and the other dead villains had been approached by Harvey Dent, to work undercover as his spies.
But that’s all the Jason can learn, before the widower joins his wife in death, thanks to the new Tally Man, in his debut.
