Boring subject, writing is not juvenile, it is childish to die for. And this is going to be the new superman? it's totally disappointing and the art gives the perspective that they want to give a touch of the Invincible comic, but in my opinion it's pretty bad.

The death penalty should be imposed on Tynion, Taylor and King for the appalling way they write. I agree with Q if Williams decides to fix this mess and if you allow him I can almost be sure that he achieves something more decent than this man with the nonexistent gift of writing.

Mingthemerciless - Oct 8, 2021

First thing...work on bringing Alfred back. Second thing...dump Tynions original characters. Third thing make Batman the star of his own book again and understand what makes Batman/Bruce such a great character. If Williamson can do that hes well on the way to righting the ship.

I mean, I know that people will not like that I say these things, as you can very well see. And I'm sure there are a lot of people who think this way but don't want to get in trouble for it so they stay silent. That's how the mob always wins, by applying enough pressure on people until they shut up and just go about their business because they don't want to put up with their crazy. I don't want to put up with their crazy either but I don't see a solution either in shutting up.

As for the part where " it also doesn't mean just because someone whose politics differ from", if you were referring to me, I feel the need to add, if the story was good and not ham-fisted like this I would rate it higher, even if I'm not a fan of Tom Taylor. But this is just pandering to the left and nothing else, no nuance and is full of a lot of plain falsehoods. I CAN like comics from writers I don't like, I love Taylor's Injustice, I can' wait for the animated movie.

Okay, so can you please elaborate further on your problems with the first page? You're unhappy that Sam Wilson says people can't validate Steve Rogers because he might be a descendent of slave owners. Is that true?

Merlyn - Sep 22, 2021

I'm unhappy that Sam and Steve, two best friends, two people who have been through so much are put by Cantwell in a position where Sam is saying to Steve that he can't validate him because of what his ancestors may have done. Do you realize how poisonous of a world view that it? To blame one of your best friends for something one of his ancestors MAY have done hundreds of years ago? It's frivolous and frankly, it's pretty racist too.

Great observations Bats. We ve gone over the various reason why Ridleys character isn't going over. The sales speak for themselves..with every Tim Fox book (including trades) the first few issues do well them they drop out of the too 50. By contrast every other bat bat centric book remains in the top 50. As we ve discussed Tim Fox is a poorly conceived character who's stories and mission are not appealing to the audience that buys the bat books. That may change with better writing and art.

But as of right now Tim Fox appears to be "Batman" by DC edict alone. The fans arent buying it.
