Cover - The N'guyen one. Nice but with no link to the story 1/2 Writing - A story with some moments fun & another very dark. I don't like the bad guys. He isn't convincing at all. I prefer the creation he use. But it's sad to know not much of how he does that. 2/3 Arts - The best part of this ongoing. Thanks to his way to draw the character that soothe the atmosphere. And damn Starfire is beauti more

Glad to see the next chapter beginning after this one, which was enjoyable but did not soar as high as the earliest issues. A good twist for Damian. Jimenez's Teen Titans were a delight.

Often, after reading a particular issue, I like to come on here and read the reviews of said issue. I was actually shocked when I saw what a low composite score Batman #29 had been given. After looking at the reviews, it's pretty much split down the middle, either you loved it or hated it. Hard to figure, as I thought this was an outstanding piece of writing and art.

One of my favorite issues to-date. Again, one of those "this is happening in a comic?" kind of issues. I can see people being disappointed that no one got punched, but this is an interesting story just so happening to occur inside of Batman. I laughed out loud at the Joker's criticism of the Riddler.

A pretty interesting dinner scene concept. Usually I'm not a fan of issue-wide exposition, however King writes Riddler and Joker dialogue so well that it makes for an excellent read. This issue is mostly build up, and will probably read better in the War of Jokes and Riddles trade, but still a great issue.

You could read this issue twice in a row and you'd still be tempted to give it another go to fully grasp the narrative. This is Tom King at his best. People were blown away by King's run on Vision and this is shaping up to be just like that or possibly even better.

The identity of Discord is finally reveled. This is an issue that is heavy on the action which is an interesting change of pace. There is still some heart to the issue though. The art is great and very fitting. I really enjoyed the depictions of action during the chase scenes and the Mosque battle. A great chapter in the series.

Though not much has happened, it was still a good issue, primarily because of the battle between Deadshot and Deathstroke. However, this marks the midway point of the story (excluding the Kite Man issues), so I am hoping that the next issues will be centred around the Joker and Riddler themselves.

Absolutely loved this issue which shows the origin of Kite Man. Batman lurks in the background but feels dangerous when he comes to the fore. The Joker is cool and menacing, and King's version of the Riddler is one of the best I've read. He really feels like a psychopath, always on the verge of flipping out. Recommended!
