A definite recommendation on this one. I enjoyed this more than the others in this series.

Batman: One Bad Day: Catwoman #1

By: Willow Wilson, Jamie McKelvie
Released: Jan 25, 2023

Selina Kyle, a.k.a. Catwoman, is the greatest thief that Gotham City has ever seen. She's effortlessly stolen countless items of immense value over the years and successfully evaded the GCPD and Batman. But when Catwoman finds out an item from her past is being sold for way more than it used to be worth, it sends Catwoman into a spiral, and she'll ...

I read it this morning and thought “that’s really good”. I read it the second time after dinner and concluded it’s freaking brilliant. If you find yourself working to get through comics, this is the type of book that makes it all worthwhile. I’d give it 20 out of 10.

Art is 12 out of 10. story better than expected to be honest, but felt a bit more convoluted as it progressed. Story is 3/10. I will be back for the next installment and I’m sure most people who read this one will be along for the ride, too.

Batman / Spawn #1

I'm sorry to say this, but this final issue was dissapointed. Batman falling fro m the space? I can tollerate a lot of things in comics, but this is ridiculous. And the final resolution, it just happens, it could have happened at any time, it makes the rest of the things that happened seem like filler. I expected much more.

Batman falling from space and somehow surviving the heat and pressure of the Earth's atmosphere is crazy: crazier than a guy dressing up in a bat costume and hanging around a farmboy alien who gets nigh-invincibility from the Sun? You tell me...

This issue is just silly. And I don’t mean in the fun Scooby Doo way. I mean in the makes no sense in terms of creating a fictional reality where there are rules that define what is possible and not possible.

Ridiculous fantasy story pretending to be sci-fi, with another cray-cray ending. And "I fell from the moon." Do you remember the days when "sci-fi" was not simply another name for "fantasy," but actually had at least SOME elements of "science" in with the "fiction"? What Zdarsky left out were alien unicorns flying from an asteroid to guide The Batman back to Earth. That is the type of Batman that more

To make a book like this work, it has to have subtle character touches like dialogue patterns, even tropes, to add nuance and a sense the book is distinctive. For lessons on how this works, go read early issues of X-Men by Claremont or heck, even Batman and the Outsiders by Mike W. Barr. I would like to see this succeed but without the craftsmanship above, it’s going to be tough. Another idea, more

Not sure who the intended audience is, but there are huge inconsistencies here. Why would Superman crawl through a duct when he can use X-ray vision to just see what was making the noise? Why not just move the wall? The lighter and more bonding type moments are fine, but we literally had nothing happen here. Missed opportunity. Gorgeous B cover by Tomeu Morey is the highlight here.

If it wasn't for the original writers and artists this book would have sucked. You can see the major differences in talent level when you look at the artists of the 1990's to the "artists" of today. Some of the pin ups are not that great.

Good storytelling, Marc Waid has a great talent for writing a fluid story that mixes magic, conspiracy, family and confrontations without getting tangled. The story is easy to follow, enjoyable to read and I really enjoyed the art. The plot moves forward: is Damian really under the influence? Batman plots his course knowing what he is likely to face. The fights with the Robins are a bit "phoned in more
