It was too short. And it felt not complete, only Bat's Robins and Barbara are here. There should be others, like Alfred daughter Julia, Supes Cassandra, and others.

Batman: Pennyworth R.I.P. #1

By: James Tynion IV, Eddy Barrows
Released: Feb 12, 2020

Alfred Pennyworth served the Wayne family for decades-even through the tragic loss of Bruce Wayne's parents. His death at the hands of Bane is the only event that could possibly compare to that fateful night in Crime Alley, and it leaves Bruce at a similar crossroads. If Alfred was the glue that held the Bat-Family together, how will Batman deal wi...

very good points. no mention of Alfred's daughter has even been made. and Superman and Wonder Woman definitely would have been there as well! this just shows how phoned in this really was.

I am once again mad at myself for buying this book. It has sucked from day one and does not look to be ever going to improve on that. Total waste of money. The issue is badly written. The art work was terrible. I kept saying I'm not going to continue to get it but I keep hoping it will get better and I just really like the character of Tim Drake even though he now is basically being called a male more

Not sure when they added Walker as an extra writer and Oeming as an extra writer, but I think only Bendis/Grell were the originally solicited team. Glad I didn't get hooked in by the Warlord tease.

I have no hopes this series will ever become better, and by "better" I mean "any decent". Bendis created his microcosm at DC, time and time reminding us about how Wonder Comics' characters are interconnected. And you know what? I don't mind that, the panel where Jinny's hunk of junk of a truck is being hauled by combined efforts of Wonder Girl, Naomi and Teen Lantern, is some real cool shit. That' more

It's frustrating because, most of Snyder's Justice League is technically well written and enjoyable, but it's so frustrating to have another non-end. I swear, since the Metal, it's been non-stop, "You won't believe what's coming next!" every seven months. Like, can we get a proper ending please? Is that so hard Snyder?!

After the onslaught of new story elements, I finally quit when I heard of Hell Arisen and the Infected storylines. He couldn't even conclude Dark Nights Metal. Last thing I ever want to see is Apex Lex vs Batman Who Laughs vs Perpetua.

Thank god this bullshit is over. Why anyone would want a Justice League book where the heroes almost never win is beyond me. DC needs to do some housecleaning and Snyder, despite a few good stories, needs to go along with King and Bendis. Get writers back in who know how to tell complete stories and remember what the point of having heroes is. This entire run was trash.

The Good:

The tying together of everything was great.

It's going to be interesting to see where things go from here.

Jimenez's art is great.

Just like everything Snyder writes, this run ends with nothing. For a worthless, meaningless story, it lasts too long. Perpetua is a boring, annoying, outdated villain and that makes the JL even dumber. I may be wrong but is Snyder whining about editorial decisions in the story? That's pretty unprofessional and narrow-minded I think since the story is JUST BAD.

not in love with this as others are, but it is a good start. It's almost impossible to not compare this issue with how Aaron's thor started, and it's weird to see that Cates went with Galactus as part of the story again, as we saw that in part of the Old King Thor arc in Aaron's original God of Thunder arc. I do like the herald angle that occurs, and also how that restores his arm. I guess Thor more

I don't want to give a higher score for a first issue, but this run starts promising... albeit it's funny how some of Aaron's "WILL LAST FOR THE END OF TIME (SIRIUSLY!*)" changes get undone in the span of a single issue (not much of a spoiler, the biggest was literally on the cover).

Schadenfreude isn't a nice thing, but I take what I can get.

Read Aaron's "God of Thunder" for the basic premise and best story of the run, and you basically know most of what happened to Thor in the last 7 years. It took a lot of detours after that, but basically he lost an eye and an arm and became King Thor as foretold in the early part of Aaron's run.

I didn't love it. Anyone notice how Donny kind of adds a gimmick to every character he works on? Venom is now more dragon, Frank Castle is goofy and in space, The Inhumans had Vox, Silver Surfer is black, Rocket had a mech suit, and now Thor is Super Saiyan 3 Goku. I am starting to see this personal trope in his work.

There's an obvious gimmick to get the speculators buying extras and readers hooked with something shiny. But Cates actually has purpose and satisfying story beats that follow, unlike many of his peers that endlessly kill, maim, and swap heroes to try and drum up internet headlines.

I don't really know how we got here story-wise but honestly, after reading this issue, I don't care.

It is exceptionally well written with an art that is immaculate. The new status quo for Thor can serve as a perfect jumping-on point (I'm living proof of that) and the unfolding story pretty much hooks you in form the start.
