I'm glad Jim posted the original solicitation above, as it really shows this issue changed drastically since its inception - and I'm very curious as to why.
Where did Paul Jenkins go? At one point he was slated to take over writing duties with this issue, then Hurwitz was announced, then Winick for the Night of the Owls crossover. Now his name is off the book but Joe Harris is credited as 'Words'. Did Jenkins fill in the basic story but had his name removed for reasons unknown? There's no White Rabbit, Jim Gordon is not working a high-profile case, and 'Wonderland' is at best a metaphor that is barely touched on.
If the end product was good it'd be one thing, but it's still tepid. Maybe better than the randomness of issues 1-7, but still leagues below what Snyder and Tomasi are doing. The villains are played as 2-dimensional cutouts and Ed Benes' art declines in quality as the issue progresses - by the end there's hardly any background detail during the fight on the rooftops.
Hopefully this is the worst for the series and everything will get better from this point on.
