I think it was ok, but nothing outstanding.
The dialogue between Batman and Two Face was interesting, but in my opinion Kobra isn’t really interesting as an enemy. So I don’t think much has happened in this issue.

A new iteration of Arkham Knight is mentioned, I dont know if it takes place in the Arkhamverse or if AK is put in the canon timeline. I loved Arkham Knight& it’s my favorite of the Arkham games. Thought the story was better than the others.

myconius - Nov 15, 2018

they made the ending too final. felt like they were trying to ape TDKR. they could have left the story open where some other studio could have picked up the story and continued it. ...it was funny how they claimed Arkham Knight was an ENTIRELY NEW character, even though everyone suspected it was just Jason Todd. and low and behold, it was Jason Todd.

i just felt the cutting was very unnecessary. ...almost like that lost chapter where Bruce nearly spent half the family fortune at nudey bars getting lap dances.

Talon1load - Nov 16, 2018

Bruce wasn’t portrayed as psychotic for most of his existence. That’s been a fairly recent development that I don’t care for. I hate how they have to keep bringing the heroes down. They are supposed to represent an ideal and thats been taken away.

i'll definitely second that notion that it's time for a new writer on Batman. ...i'll 100% agree that Robo-Gordon Batman was a terrible idea. i cannot believe it went on as long as it did. ..yeah i felt the handling of the New Gods in Darkseid War was not very good at all. ...i'll have to dip into Doomsday Clock again. the first few issues i'd read felt very fan fiction'y to me. but i'll eventually give it another shot. did they ever give a reason as to why the Comedian was saved?

I went in wanting to like this one. I kept looking for moments, but there were few I liked. Overall it was an uninteresting story, with muddled dialog, and was completely void of any emotional content or connection to any character. The art was good, but too detailed in places (especially the smaller panels) which distracted me from what was happening.

I actually always thought, that Thomas Wayne& Gotham Girl, Bane etc. weren’t really there, but the pic was just a flashback for everything bad, that happened to Bruce during Kings run. But since Thomas also was in the Penguin story King seems to be serious with the story idea.

The worst story arc in comics is one that the reader doesn't care about. It doesn't have to be bad, it doesn't have to be relatively decent, but its story makes readers just indifferent, uninterested, apathetic.

Totally. Super Sons, Batman and Robin and Superman are all great series. I really think he can salvage this series.

Harley wants the Trinity’s attention but instead of staying at Sanctuary she runs and then lures them to her in some convoluted mess that ends with her beating the three of them. King, once again, makes Batman incompetent. Booster is now just a nutjob with no real explanation other than the other convoluted story that King wrote.

THE GOOD:

-Outstanding art. I've never really been a huge Greg Land fan, but this story arc made me see why many people are. His art works excellently for both this series and the characters.

-Very compelling characters. Havok and Beast, stand out as the most well-written, more
