    In its powerful conclusion, "Cheer" brings together the remaining threads of Red Hood and Batman's difficult past and weaves them into a strong foundation for the future as a person and as a member of the Batfamily. Im going to miss this arc.

    As for the two one-off stories we get in Batman: Urban Legends #6, the Black Canary one is huge. It helps set the table for an upcoming DC Comics title, which I can't wait for. The Zealot story seems to be further setting up for a WildC.A.T.s series, and one would think Matthew Rosenberg will be the one to run that series at this point.

    One of the best issues of the series, with two excellent stories and one very significant one.

    Batman: Urban Legends #6 is a home run, in terms of both finishing out the game and commencing a new inning. From new villains to new takes to announcements heard around the world… this is THE ISSUE!

    Cheer - A great story that utilizes the relationships between these characters perfectly. It also has great action and tension throughout. Blood for Blood - An intriguing and entertaining story that has implications that make me curious as a reader. Great art and action throughout the story. Sum Of Our Parts - The story is good. The action is well done and the art is fantastic. Solo - An interesting and entertaining story that has great visuals and action. I am interested in seeing where this story goes next and what form it takes for the characters.

    Batman: Urban Legends is still a great place to reinvent and relaunch characters that may not have gotten the chance otherwise. Batman: Urban Legends #6 gives its featured characters interesting new directions with fitting art for an exciting entry.

    Batman: Urban Legends #6 is filled with fantastic storytelling. The stories involving Batman, Red Hood, Tim Drake's Robin, and Black Canary are all can't miss. This is a must have series for fans of the Batman Family.

    A great read for Bat-fans who just can't get enough of Gotham and the characters it spawned.

    As has been the case with Urban Legends, the Zdarsky story is worth the purchase while the other stories range in quality.

    Batman Urban Legends #6 was a down issue for me. The Chip Zdarsky Batman/Red Hood story didn't end with the bang I was hoping for, and the other three stories didn't win me over either. The issue looked good overall, but this was my least favorite since it began.

    The first arc is over, and if you can't tell, I'm burnt out on this title. It started off with such promise, yet never realized its potential. Even the high points never rise above merely good, despite the great creative teams behind them. Hopefully future issues are retooled to make this a more palatable anthology series, with more one-and-done stories that aren't there solely to set up a future title.
