WOW.

To those that are disappointed that Batman's acting 'out of character,' I'm here to tell you that's what often happens when someone is brutally traumatized, particularly when it happens over and over. Of course Batman isn't himself. That's the point.

For him Pre52& also in Rebirth. In Kings of Fear he just put them on the same level once again. People are saying Catwoman due to her popularity, but those people most of the time don’t know the comics. And neither does King& that’s why he ignores Talia or Bekka.

Darkseid24 - Dec 10, 2018

There were stories were he had an emotional breakdown like in Bruce Wayne murderer or after Death in the Family, but those were better written. The pain King creates for him seems quite common& he actually could deal with it, since he did with worse before.

had this 'side' series been consistently this good, i'd be more upset to see it end.
but as it stands with this series overall infrequency in quality, i'm just happy to see the series end on a high note.

Feel like a bit of continuity is off with some of the characters that we’ve seen in other books. The dialogue and the art work was eh. At least only part that really got me was the cliffhanger! Feel like now we are going full throttle for Banes plans. I’m very curious to next issue on their interactions.

Well, Batman still acts like a d-bag, who traded imposing presence for childish tantrums and still beats criminals senselessly. But I think there is a far more important question to be asked here.

Why is Alfred FEEDING Penguin? WHY? That scene makes absolutely no sense whatsoever and is dumb. His hands are free, he can hold the plate himself. By the way, his h more

This issue was beyond stupid. Batman is the world's worst detective and now just goes around beating on people.
