Rucka, Lieber and McKenna continue with the saga of Sasha Bordeaux in Detective 774 (Nov. 02).
She isn’t dead of course. If you thought she was dead, you’ve never read a comic book. While still unconscious, Sasha was taken by Jessica Midnight to Checkmate headquarters.
She is offered a new life, as they “ended” her old one, as a Checkmate operative.
Batman does not believe that Sasha is dead, and gets confirmation that some government agency took her from the prison and faked the death certificate. He suspects Checkmate, but it takes months before he runs into David Said, and gets that confirmed.
As the story ends, Batman breaks into Checkmate and confronts Jessica Midnight. They refuse to tell him anything, and Batman does not even realize that he is standing right next to Sasha, who has undergone reconstructive surgery to give her a new face.
The story concludes next issue.
That scary beast man keeps on killing people in this chapter of The Hunt, by Moore, Hoberg and Gaudiano.
Still no answers, explanation, nor even a clear view of the main character, but it works.
The Hunt concludes next issue.
