Another issue trying to retroactively show that there was always a story here when it is obvious that King was too lazy to do anything of the sort and needed these last dozen or so issues to cover his own tracks. We were supposed to get the answers to Thomas Wayne, but I guess it's the questions that King didn't understand, namely, how was there a Flashpoint timeline for him to come from and why more

Putting in quotes from writers can be good, I actually like that, but in Kings story it feels out of place.

Ugh, you know I have to get a pesky wisdom tooth extracted today and I think that will be at least 5 times better than this issue. His "explanations" aren't explanations. This is just shitty. "Thomas Wayne is an asshole because... he's always been an asshole." My mind is blown. We knew that Thomas Wayne was an asshole, we didn't need most of this. And again, what happened with Booster?

King fans after this issue: The book was kind of rushed and sloppy in execution; not a great penultimate issue either. It also has some plot-holes and raises more questions than before.

Also King fans after this issue: 10/10 rating

I don't care anymore. This book is an embarrassment to the comic industry. I feel bad for anyone who enjoys this book.

This isnt as bad as the last few issues, but still bad.

We are finally getting an explanation for why & how Thomas can even be in this timeline. I don’t read Flash, but I don’t think Reverse Flash is powerful enough to bring people from already erased timelines back to the canon ( if so, he should bring Pre52 Darkseid& Desaad back to me), so this feels like a deus ex machina.

Reverse flashbacks might sound very artistic and deep. It actually makes it a bit more jarring, especially since I don't remember Flashpoint so well. So if someone wants to enjoy this issue more, you need to read Thomas bits backwards.

I don't know what linear story telling did to King as a child, but it must be terrible. Because King just refuses to tell a story in linear order.

Apparently Thomas Wayne's whole motivation is that he fell in love with the Selina Kyle of his world and he wants Bruce to, in some sort of weird psycho-sexual transference thing, seal the deal.

I don't blame Tom King though. I get it now. He got pulled off his book and he is taking the piss at DC. But he is alienating his fans. We get a recap of things we know. That's all. A recap.

then Tom King has been taking a piss at DC since his first issue of Batman. his whole run has been a mess, though not as bad as the corner he's painted himself into at the end here. he had no plan of what he wanted to do with this run, and it shows.

Darkseid24 - Dec 5, 2019

A good writer? Some of his stories are mediocre at best, but his Mister Miracle already was awful, if you actually know& love the New Gods. Same goes for his Batman run. And he doesnt have any reason to be pissed at DC when he is allowed to write every crap he comes up with. That makes no sense.

Using the word "earlier" for every panel makes it feel incredibly messy, and as we're talking about a character from an entirely different Earth it muddles it even further. I'd say there would have to be a better way to indicate where and when things happened but simply "earlier" is not it.
