THE GOOD:

-This issue gets recognition for just being such a massive improvement over the previous issue. Whereas issue 54 felt like a pointless filler, this issue takes its concepts and uses them originally and sets up a great new status quo for Nightwing.

-Tony S. Daniel's art is excellent. He captures the characters well and portrays a variety of scenes with different feel more

Nyet, comrade-it has to do with Bruce Wayne's recent court case involving Mr. Freeze. Something is rotten in Gotham, and you can still smell it, even if it's on ice!

UHG! i thought this was the same Tom King that wrote the hit series 'Grayson'.
what happened??? did he completely forget how to write the character?

Nightwing's jokes were SO bad in this!
such painful dialog!!!
i was actually almost happy when he got *SPOILER WITHHELD* !
...also, Nightwing getting *SPOILER WITHHELD* in the *SPOILER WITHHELD* was very predictable.

He makes a meta reference to readers' opinion on his stilted script with self-perceived humor 'cause he thinks that'll deflect legitimate criticism and warrant his repetition ad nauseam.

--Let's see if a later issue will include a line similar to the one above to fill the space that should be used to tell a good story, and thus create an oh-so-clever meta-ception.

For the most part I liked Snyder’s Batman. I’m not as big a fan of his work sense then but I likes his Batman. I can not stand King’s Batman since it isn’t recognizable as the actual character. Add to that shitty storytelling and dialogue and there is nothing redeeming about this run.

myconius - Sep 7, 2018

i really loved the very first issue on the Snyder/Capullo Batman. i think it lost it’s charm for me upon re-reads. so much of the exposition is just painful for me to get through. Capullo’s art is amazing though! Tom King’s Batman seems like a practical joke to me. the dialog sounds like malfunctioning robots trying to communicate with each other. and King’s Batman is so incompetent. if Batman wasn’t my favorite character i wouldn’t even bother sating my morbid curiosity.
