And Leviathan’s identity is:
Yeah, Bleeding Cool figured that out and spoiled it a month or two ago.
In terms of being a mystery, it's kind of a cop out in that he wasn't a character in the story, so there was no real mystery to solve. You can't guess someone who isn't there and as far as I can remember, hasn't even been around since the late 1980s. But maybe he was, and I missed it. Anyway, the only clues were visual, mostly on one of the covers.
On the other hand, it's much better than if Leviathan was one of the ridiculous red herrings they half-set up.
I read the theory about his identity a month ago, though not from BleedingCool. It made sense, although I won't lie, I wished it was revealed in issue #5, instead of #6.
This DC Event was decent, with the artwork being great, and for the most part, characters sounded fine, and it was nice to see a wide range of characters (specifically Manhunter, The Silencer and The Question).
However, this event won't be very memorable. Honestly, I probably wouldn't have missed anything if I skipped it, and the attempts to keep readers guess Leviathan's identify didn't really work (like when we were meant to speculate if Red Hood was the villain or not).

You know, re-reading Batman Eternal just made realise the irony regarding Alfred’s death.
There, Bane saved him after Arkham Asylum had collapsed.
Now, in City of Bane, he meets his “end” from him.
...I’m still hoping he’s not actually dead, or at the very least, remain dead for a long period of time. It’s weird not having Batman and Alfred together.
DC Comics FEBRUARY 2020 Solicitations
I may pick up the Alfred issue even though I give a year or two before he's miraculously back. I'd just like to read something that celebrates the character (though I'd trade it for one of those character specific collection trades like they did for the "75 Years of..." or the "Batman Arkham" one)
Edit: Snap! There is one that same month. Never mind.
Also nice to see the Stan Lee creates... books back in print as a collection.
Ooh. I always liked his take on Superman. I need to see if they're on comixology.
I don't think they are, they might throw them up on Comixology separately around the time the collection is printed and also available digitally.
I used to have them, but I've been slowly selling off my comic collection. My favorite one was the issue with Shazam.
I read a few back when they out too. I forgot most of the details, but I thought they were fun. I liked his take on Batman.
Was that where he was a boxer? Or am I thinking of Tangent?
I don't remember him being a Boxer. All I remember was his suit actually looked like a Bat and he was African American.
You're not kidding:
Joe Kubert drew that. He was a tremendous artist.
