Even better than the last issue. I am sorry everyone who hates this run, this might be my new favourite run. I love the Batman and Catwoman relationship too much.

The 20 Issue Ceiling - Sep 20, 2019

The original Mirage run is my favourite. I am not reading current IDW TMNT but the 5th turtle reminds me of that live action show in the 90s' The Next Mutation, which hardly anybody seems to remember (probably for good reason)

myconius - Sep 20, 2019

most definitely! nothing ever will come close to the greatness of the Eastman & Laird Mirage. even at the end of the run "Shades of Gray/City at War" was not as good as the early issues. a lot of the fun element was missing. but it was still good. you aren't missing anything by not reading the current IDW TMNT. it drags on and goes nowhere. plus they milk their fans into having to buy tons of mini-series and one-shots just to complete the story. ...yeah Venus DeMilo, the 5th Turtles. just awful!

Darkseid24 posted on myconius's profile Sep 20, 2019

Have you heard it? Tynion is going to take over Batman after King apparently. Awful decision. No improvement herein And is it true, that Bruce will be replaced as Batman? If so I guess DC is just asking their readers to ignore them.

@ohhaimark yeah pretty much. it's one thing if the dialog is compelling, inspired or engaging. it's something completely else when it's ramble on boring dialog that's a chore to get through. Tynion is a tedious chore. @Darkseid24 i don't find Tynion nearly as bad as the trash that King Writes, but he's far from great. he's mediocre at best. tedious and boring at worst.

YourGreenMuse - Sep 20, 2019

I like Tynion sometimes. I liked his Hellblazer run and a good amount of the most recent JL Dark run. His Justice League fill-in issues for Snyder are all his worst traits, imo, and that really sucks.

Seeing how King likes to be "deep and profound", the big change is probably Batman realizing he can be happy and still be Batman.

Tom King is a goner, so I'm presuming that this arc is toast within 12 months of his departure. That makes reviewing this little escapade as anything more than the oddity that it is...well, kinda pointless. I don't mind the "City of Bane" arc itself, but the "how we got here" part with Thomas Wayne was dreadful. But I digress, and I don't want to continue beating up on the soon-departed. >
It was an decent story for what it was...A sexy little rehab of body and mind on the French Riviera or wherever. Perhaps the most intelligible story I've read by King, and that counts for a lot with him.

My complaints are cosmetic:

1. The Cat/Bat dialogue is annoying. I know King is wed to that terminology, but he leans on it way too hard.

2. Training in spandex suits is a little more than silly when you're in some tropical paradise.

3. Practicality aside, they must have zero issues about personal privacy. Never mind that BRUCE WAYNE is vacationing with some knockout babe...and OH WAIT ITS BATMAN.

King hits the relationship notes in a stunted way, and the big pages of working out suggest he's healing. That counts for plot progress, I hope.

The art was great. I bet the artist had a blast not drawing sewage infested streets and chemical warehouses. He draws pretty women in paradise quite well.

Not much more to say about it. Except that GOTHAM IS BURNING AND ALFRED IS DEAD.
