I don't have a lot of Wildstorm background, but absolutely loved this issue. I imagine it's even more fun if you know a lot about these characters and teams. Looking forward to re-reading once more is explained.

I really want to like this book (great characters, good concept), but the story has just been too hard to follow. There are way too many things going on and, while there is tons of narration, it doesn't really clarify anything. Looking forward to the conclusion of the arc in the next issue, but that'll probably be it for me.

Looking forward to seeing what you come up with for a review. Probably no surprise, but issue #7 didn't save this for me - disappointing.

Tom King and David Finch conclude their "I am Bane" arc great. I love the part in which Batman almost mocks Bane for saying "I'm going to kill you". This accumulated everything that has been established in his whole series so far. Ending was almost bittersweet. I encourage individuals who dropped this to give it a second look because I think its fantastic.

Tom King will never stop surprising me! Since the beginning, everything this series has delivered was perfect: the characterizations of every single character is masterful, the story-telling is always innovative and elegant and the plot is unique. This arc is the best of the series and I'm really excited to know where the author is going from here!

Very solid issue, great to see King writing the other villains in this issue, all with suiting personalities. Particularly enjoyed the Two-Face and Riddler moments. Bane remains a terrifying presence with Batman trying to buy as much time as he can keeping him out of the way. I've never been as wowed before by Finch's art but here he is killing it even with deadline pressures.

I love everything Tom King writes in this series. Bane is still the most complex, psychological and interesting character of the series and I've never seen him like this. Before reading this arc, I knew that it would be masterful, but it's even better than I expected!

Tom King is, for me, the best comic-book writer right now. He's a genius! The story is really interesting, dark and terrifying. I love in this series how he compares Batman with his enemies, before with Catwoman and now with Bane. He's proving us that Batman is the best and there's no other hero like him. And David Finch's art keeps getting better and the confrontation is incredibly illustrated.

Tom King continues to rise to the occasion as Batman and Bane finally come to blows. This issue displays a great handle of Bane and the parallels he shares with the protagonist. Now as much as I like what King did in this issue the star of this book is Finch the art in this issue is fantastic it really elevates the work. I felt this great chapter in the I am Bane Arc.
