Portentous, pretentious, depressing, dull, padded, poorly paced. Why is everyone raving about this? There was about six seconds of interesting plot development, but this is otherwise another overrated dud from King, whose work has gone from incredible to miserable in three short years.

What do you do after the most death-defying act of your escape artist career? You go to war, of course! Scott Free has skipped out on his trip to the great beyond and taken a boom tube to New Genesis instead, where he and his wife, Big Barda, take on the invading hordes of Apokolips. Things are a little off, however, and Mister Miracle starts to do...

The Vision was fantastic and Sheriff of Babylon was also great, but everything after that by him was mediocre at best. Beside the Catwoman-centered issues, which I really like.

I'm with you king' s gone from great from miserable... but I did like the 1st arc of Batman

I'm giving it 10 to balance those 1 ratings that I believe are ridiculous and are based strictly on their own vision of what Batman should be. My "real" rating wouldn't be so far from it though. Tom King is breaking some of the status quo with his vision of Batman as a more grounded and meditative character, without taking away the action and its classic side. It finally gives some meaning to vill more

"THE BALLAD OF KITE MAN" part two! In our second "War of Jokes and Riddles" interlude, it's the making of a super-villain! He's been pushed by Batman to snitch on The Joker, and cajoled by The Joker to betray Batman-now, the flunky who would be Kite Man finally snaps. He's lost everything, and a life of crime is the only way to go.

I'm glad that you're such a positive person who doesn't just shit on people who disagree with you we need more comic readers like you weather I agree with you or not

The bad who - Sep 10, 2017

True that. Discussion is a rare thing on internet nowaday. Most of the things a discover are through discussion and reading things I thought was bad before trying it.By the way I'm not so positive usually! Just a guy who understand people have different opinions.

How do people keep giving this a 10 out of 10? Do people forget that the plans that Batman is doing in this issue is nowhere close to the plan that Bruce Wayne gives us in the last issue? This book has become one of the worst stories in rebirth and I hope Tom King get this s*** together or get off of this book for good.

Another boring issue to the series with really nothing at stake. Too much talking about an outcome that doesn't matter because we know Batman won't die The Riddler won't die Joker won't die none of this matters. And I hate how many Mikel Janin draws Riddler when Joker was fantasizing about killing him he had the largest breasts I've seen in a Batman comic.

This was an awful story. The art was some of the worst that I've seen in weeks. My exposure to Mister Miracle before now was his time with the JLI and that is not what I got here. I assume this book would be enjoyable closer to Tom Kings fantastic Grayson run but it looks like it's closer to his mediocre Batman work. I would not recommend this story to anyone.

Raptor was completely seeley's creation not an element from a previous run, and you think its boring. You think Pigeon and Defacer are great!? As if more reason to dismiss you opinion was needed after giving this masterpiece a 4.0

Mechanical Mudd - Aug 12, 2017

No Raptor is a garbage rip off of Tiger from Grayson, and enjoyable characters in Nightwing are the Runoffs. As for King's Batman, I Am Gotham was a Masterpiece and I did enjoy I Am Bane, but I Am Suicide, Jokes and Riddles, that Rooftops thing, and even the Button sucked in my opinion. I think King has a lot going in this story like the possibility that everything is a lie created by the Apokoliptians to trick Mr. Miracle, but I still stand at 4/10 regardless.

I'm tired of a boring, forulaic, Suicide Squad. Where is the death of Z-List villains? Why am I suppose to care about Frost? When will this book get good? The New 52 Suicide Squad was in no way revolutionary, but it did give me exactly what I wanted when it came to nonsensical violence and dark comedic enjoyment.
