It's saying something when a LoSH character hanging out in Batman is hardly the most WTF moment of an issue.
The circus is a strange place, evident by the endless Nightwing stories that come from it.
Man, I sure wish Damian showed up in Batman books too... you know, where it'd make total and complete sense?
More mess is made. Lots more. I hope you weren't fond of the Royal Flush Gang.

Panels of the Week
Not so much a panel, as it is a page, but this one page from Batman #6 really serves as the turning point of the story, and the tipping point where Bruce goes into full badass mode, threatening to come after each and every member of the Court of Owls.
Dick Grayson with a devilish grin while dangling a guy upside down, off the edge of a building... perfect
Even though Jesus Saiz didn't draw this issue, it'd be hard to notice. Javier Pina perfectly depicted the badassery of Katana and Poison Ivy here.
The climactic scene in Under the Hood is probably one of my favorite scenes in modern Batman history. It's genuinely emotional for both characters involved, so any recreation of that is going to get me.
Right after Selina dropped a bomb on Bruce. The tenseness is captured perfectly, showing one of those rare moments Batman is actually speechless. I also think it was a great move to have it be a completely clear panel, no words, no nothing, just mimic the silence of the scene.
