I want Matthew Manning or Doug Moench. These two would be my favorite choices, but after Dceased I’m fine with Taylor as long as he doesn’t kill any character I like. @myconius You are too optimistic, I fear the worst lol

YourGreenMuse - May 22, 2019

I don't know enough about Matthew Manning and I haven't read anything recent from Doug Moench and I don't just want to assume he'll be good based on decades old work. I don't mind characters I like dying as long as it's a satisfying death and actually has an impact.

there were things i did enjoy about this issue, mostly the art. the art was excellent.
but the big shocking reveal for the motivation behind the Arkham Knight was extremely forced and very poorly handled.

like i said there were good things about the issue, but i'm honestly very disappointed.
will go into more detail later after i've had a chance to re-read this.

If Astrid currently is like 15-20 years old& villains like Harley& Joker were all already in Arkham before she was even born, it would consequently mean, that Harley is like 40-45 years& Joker 55-60 years old.
