The story refuses to move more than 5 minutes. At least, that's what I think, since we have no events to actually establish a timeline or have any sense of movement in the story itself. Nothing happens, suggesting that Tom King really doesn't know where to go with this arc, though it is a really cool concept. He just wants to add filler to make us wait for Selina's answer, which I didn't care abou more

A 20 page dinner party? There's no story here. This long-stalled arc is a major let down. The art alone keeps me from dropping this title.

Another boring issue to the series with really nothing at stake. Too much talking about an outcome that doesn't matter because we know Batman won't die The Riddler won't die Joker won't die none of this matters. And I hate how many Mikel Janin draws Riddler when Joker was fantasizing about killing him he had the largest breasts I've seen in a Batman comic.

This story arc is so frustrating. There have been five issues and nothing makes much sense. I understand what he's going for is a sort of political debate and choosing the lesser of two evils which I think is cool. The execution, however, does not establish the differences of each side very well. Bruce Wayne in this issue was very bizarre, he does something that is unnecessary as motivation for Ri more

It was weird reading this issue and Metal back to back. Snyder and King have completely different takes on Batman and I have to say I dig Snyder's more. While this was no doubt a unique issue and the storytelling was presented in a different way, what was absolutely terrible in this issue was Joker's portrayal. He's not at all scary anymore. The fact that you would let Joker have dinner with you a more

This Batman issue is just absurd, it's boring, and it doesn't move the story along at all. I'm almost to the point where I'm going to stop reading the main Batman book. My completionist OCD won't let me quit buying them but I'll just bag and board them for my collection.

I am very over this run. None of the characters are true to canon and Tom King seems not to care about the timeline at all. I hate to say it, but Batman needs new writer. Disappointing. Janin's artwork is good.

As with most of King's run on Batman I've liked one issue and then be completely disappointed with the next. This nothing but pure filler! So King decided to give us an origin story of Kite Man. But of course he had to jump around timelines and cut back and forth on when things are happening. The art is good enough but this issue was boring and completely unnecessary. Im starting to wonder if doub more

This issue was garbage. a)Joker acts a little off. The whole "pulling all the teeth" is more for shock value than something Joker actually would do. He is written better when he prefers the psychological torture than the physical one. Joker isn't Zsasz. b)Riddler another clone of Zsasz. Drawing a "?" in blood. This is more stupid than him stabbing someone 26 times for each letter of the alphabet more

I, for one, am tired of Tom King's run on Batman. I didn't care for the Bane arc and I am just bored by this one. Batman is a hero. Yes, he makes mistakes, but he deserves a heroic arc. Not wearing a super-powered foe out by getting beat to a pulp several times and the. Getting lucky with a head-butt. And in this arc he's doing absolutely nothing except intimidating a small-time crook into ruining more
