Quinn reviewed Batman #78 Sep 11, 2019
3.5

The art is great, that is why I rate it this highly. The whole issue is Bruce and Selina talking at each other, not to each other.

Basically, Selina says she gave up the relationship to be a hero, but she is not a hero, she is a thief.

Bruce said he thought Batman had to be alone to work. But that doesn’t explain Robins 1-4, Multiple Batgirls, Batwomen, justice leagues, com more

I really liked it.

I can already see people complaining about how this is filler but I think that it's good to finally have a more laid back issue that focuses on Bruce and Selina's relationship, especially after they were separated for so long. I thought that it was well written, heartwarming and beautiful. The art is so good I don't think I know a word to describe how good it is. And more

^^This! And even though it's an interlude, it's still crucial to the overall story. It answers the thesis to King's entire run: can Bruce be happy and still be Batman?

Talon1load - Sep 13, 2019

Bruce HAS been happy before. And this idiotic interlude is only important because King is forcing it to be. It still makes zero sense. Why did those guys even know what could beat Bane? Nothing makes sense.

This is just like most of Bendis' books. Lots of talking, with dialogue that just keeps going and going. And... Not much else. Unfortunately, his dialogue is insipid. So I don't like this book.

DC really had to get the LSH relaunch right. It cannot have too many more chances in such a crowded market.

Unfortunately they have made a right mess of it, and really ought to cancel the new series before it even begins. Bendis is not the man for the job.

"This epic story spans the course of 1,000 years and, for the very first time, connects all of DC's future timelines!"

First, I am certain that past writers have connected all of the future DC timelines. Second, this issue does not connect these timelines; it simply shows some of them. What *is* the connection between Kamandi's world and Tommy Tomorrow's, beyond "one happened first"? more

If this hadn’t been marketed as the return of the legion I wouldn’t have been as disappointed. Not a terrible story, just not what I was expecting/wanting.

Houston, we have a problem.

Brian Michael Bendis has tried to relaunch the fan-favorite Legion of Super-Heroes franchise with a book that features...no Legion. Instead, it's a series of wandering vignettes through future history. "President Supergirl", Batman Beyond, Kamandi, Tommy Tomorrow...they all get a piece of the action, visited by Rose/Thorn -- a curious character choice to be more

Superheroes for Hire - Sep 9, 2019

Exactly right. Bendis logic may be sound, but this issue does nothing to actually tie together the various future timelines we know of. There's nothing "definitive" here, even though Bendis has been very adamant in interviews that this miniseries was going to be the definitive word on the DC future. Its the vaguest, lamest story filled with odd vignettes instead. His timeline is "and then" and another "and then."

2.5

No Legion, a POV character that Bendis only recently forced into his books and story and dialogue that goes nowhere, but takes a really long time to get there! I was hoping the awesome roster of artists would save the day, but that is not the case. This is yet another book that makes me wonder why DC is giving him the keys to the kingdom! He still doesn't seem to have a full grasp of DC charact more

Well, this comic certainly won't warm up Bendis' reputation among DC fans and be the first step to redeem him after wave of bad-to-mediocre-at-best comics he's been writing for a while now.
The plot is a disjointed tale of an immortal woman, who lives long enough to se multiple periods of time, and encounter iconic characters in each. Too bad it all feels pretty pointless, since probably only more

2.5 points for middle ground art by committee. Each individual artist does well, but nothing inspires as a whole. This is when we bring out Jim Lee - for Rose and future Supergirl? 1 point for a mostly incoherent narrative and shaky logic, and...for no Legion when it's clearly in the title. Are we to believe the future Supergirl ages so much in Bruce Wayne's lifetime? Because Batman Beyond happens more

Intriguing for sure, but I don't know what the functional purpose was for having this issue be mostly exposition from Lex and Ozymandias. With all the exposition, we still don't know how the Watchmen reality would be saved by Ozy's plan in the DCU being successful. The most compelling part of the story is seeing how the "real world" is responding to the superhero stuff in real time. I appreciate more

Art continues to be fantastic from Bogdanovic, although here there were a few quickly drawn faces that detracted from some of the shine. Mother Shark seems to be an unreliable narrator, but if she speaks truth, then the continuity of recent stories gets even muddier. Can't wait for more, as Kelly Sue DeConnick weaves her Old Gods plot lines in with the previously ongoing storyline.

Mother Shark, man. Mother Shark! Such an intriguing new character with a creepy interest in Arthur Curry Aquaman. Viktor Bogdanovic fits nicely into the current art paradigm for Aquaman, and his depiction of the giant Mother Shark is the fantastic icing on the Aquaman cake. The ending cliffhanger is quite the twist that doesn't yet make sense with recent continuity.
