Someone at DC must have been thinking, "gee...how do we make Jason Aaron's return to DC seem special?" To which someone else shouted, "A Batman miniseries! But make it in space!" And thus, Batman: Off-World was born. This debut issue lacked a punch or a reason for existence, other than to give Jason Aaron's return some extra pomp and circumstances. I never really felt like I was being informed why more

I thought personally this was a great issue, can definitely picture a batman in his early years wanting to take up a challenge like this to grow and become a better batman in the future by wanting to visot ET life.

That's fair and I'm glad you enjoyed it! It just wasn't for me personally but I'd never intend for that to mean I don't want it to be received well by other people!

I'm giving Aaron the benefit of the doubt.i know his tenure at marvel ended badly and fans didn't like his punisher and avenger stuff (I never read it) but for a out of continuity batman book, this is pretty solid. Art is great and hopefully the story continues to be fun.

Back to a win with this issue on Batman. Score would have been higher but just think it's completely out of character for batman to be on his knees simping and begging for Selina to give him a chance.

Batman #136

By: Chip Zdarsky, Belen Ortega

Failsafe and Red Mask have forever changed Batman, and Gotham isn't as welcoming as it once was. Can Batman remind them who he is? Can he remind...Catwoman? The future of the Bat-books starts here, and everyone's world is about to explode!

Since when was issue #25 of any series a "Landmark issue?" Soon Marvel will be celebrating issue #5.

It isn't terrible but it isn't very good either. A very average 5 out of 10 and that's mostly for the art. Nothing much happens in this hyped-up and oversized issue. We learn where the kids came from. And that's about all. Disappointing.

I enjoyed the art, especially Kaare An more

Grey I didn't know you reviewed here too. :) But this issue is just painful to read the art is great but the story is just garbage. I understand the deconstruction of a hero but this seems like total demolition. It make me dread the next issue.

wakizashireviews - May 14, 2023

@banditobane Yes, I drop a couple of reviews when I have time. The only problem with this site is the users who have multiple accounts just to review bomb certain writers. They never write any reviews, just throw out 1s or 10s for writers they seem to either love or hate.
