Tom King once again proves that his comics are worth their weight in turds.


actually, turds are more valuable than this crap.

Batman/Catwoman #7

By: Tom King, Liam Sharp
Released: Sep 8, 2021

When Batman begins to doubt Catwoman’s allegiance, it leads to trouble on the streets of Gotham. Who does Selina support: Joker, Phantasm, or the Dark Knight? Well, he’ll soon find out that some questions are better left unasked. If he’s going to test her loyalty, she’s going to test his mettle. Thus, Bruce Wayne finds himself locked in a b...

this did NOT feel like what we'd seen in these movies. it feels like they are trying to take the world of the Michael Keaton Batman movies and make it feel more typical of Batman of the comics. then what was the point of revisiting this universe in the first place?

did not care for the art at all. something very awkward about it.

Batman '89 #1

By: Sam Hamm, Joe Quinones
Released: Aug 11, 2021

Step back into the Gotham of Tim Burton’s seminal classic Batman movies! Batman ’89 brings in screenwriter Sam Hamm (Batman, Batman Returns) and artist Joe Quinones (Dial H for Hero) to pull on a number of threads left dangling by the prolific director. Gotham becomes torn in two as citizens dressed as Batman and The Joker duke it out in the st...

did you get a chance to watche the Burton films then read the comic? how well did it hold to the tone of the films?

Ben Reilly - Sep 8, 2021

I did! I wrote a review for it if you want to check it out, but basically the gist of it is that the tone of the book matches the films in my opinion. It's not perfect but it's not entirely bad.

1.I’m getting a little tired of some fans saying Taylor is a bad writer. I’m not sure that anyone is writing a better series than this one, possibly at any company. He has also made me a fan of Jonathan Kent and even of him in the Superman role in one issue flat. I didn’t think any writer capable of that. The guys is shitting gold lately.

@Weird Sciene Jim I can agree with you (at least to an extent). I'm a first-time Nightwing reader and I've been loving it so far. I appreciate the love Dick Grayson is getting so far in this series but I think now is the time to see him go through some tough obstacles and challenge the hero.

Not gonna get deep into the Afghanistan pullout because nuance is dead here, but "Afghani" is a currency. Calling the Afghan people "Afghanis" is basically telling everyone in the room that you don't know anything about the conflict.

This is a new level of bad. Geoff Johns should never touch anything DC related ever again.
The Art is great, but it’s totally wasted for this trainwreck of a story. 4 years this storyline was teased by DC & the actual plot is just underwhelming. Joker created these Jokers to create a new better one, what doesn’t even make sense for his character. Then he kills his victims. The alternati more

@The Dark Knight Detective - thank you! ... OH! absolutely. ....i may not care for Johns' writing on Batman, but his Superman, Aqualman and Green Lantern writing are great!!! he has a good sense of how to tell uplifting inspiring stories. i've not yet read his Flash. but i hear good things. ... Tom King on the other hand likes to peddle stories about depression and PTSD, as if he'd not already outed himself as a one-trick pony ages ago. he just writes every character as pathetic and sad.

Ben Reilly - Aug 14, 2021

@myconius I don't know what specifically King went through and did while he was in the CIA but whatever it is must've shook him. There's also the consideration of his own personal life. However, that doesn't mean that every one of his stories should be about depression and PTSD. I don't read comics for torture porn or for characters being miserable UNLESS it's done well and it brings a bit of hope and inspiration in the end.

it might not be accurate but from what i'd heard the story of the 3 Jokers was built up like a mystery, then at the end Batman was just like "Yeah. I knew who he was the whole time." ....that sort of renders the entire mystery aspect as moot. though from what i'd seen of the art, it definitely looks worth a trade copy for that alone. but my collection is already long since toppling over itself with so many pretty stories that i just cannot get myself to re-read.

Ben Reilly - Aug 14, 2021

When it comes to the comics I have on my shelf, if it's been a long time since I read the story and I have no intention on rereading it any time soon, I just give it away either by selling it or donating it to my local library. But if the artwork is absolutely gorgeous, I'll just keep it on my shelf if the story isn't terrible and just skim through it like it's an art book.

I know I feel like I'm in the minority here, but I actually like Tynion's Batman run. Is it better than Scott Snyder or Morrison's Batman? Of course not. But it's fun and entertaining and Batman feels cool to me. He's not written like a wimp in Tom King, and i like how Tynion makes Batman usually win by using his gadgets.

Basically Nakano hates Batman because during the Joker War there was a situation in which Nakano's partner died and he blames Batman for it. Also, I must've blocked you by mistake. Should be fixed now though!

As for best crossovers in 2020, I think I would agree on Joker War being my favorite, although I never read King in Black since I couldn't afford it at the time.
