Tom killed this issue. Normally this is a mid-tier book for me, but this issue was my Pick Of The Week, so great. Here is my video review for it. https://youtu.be/8l8czOKI3ow

In the afterward of Excellence #1, writer Brandon Thomas admits that this is a very personal story for him. Some of the events in this book are real to his life. Writing from personal experiences gives an author the ability to draw from a deep emotional well and ground fictional stories with real feelings. Sometimes however, that emotional well is too deep, too dark, and too difficult to climb out more

Excellence #1

The art wasn't great. Maybe in trade all at once this would be a good read, but as a single issue, we were introduced to random characters I can't remember now, and that's about it, I didn't really feel there were any hooks in this book to make me want to come back for an issue 2.

9.0

Strong showings from Warren Ellis, Scott Snyder, Paul Dini, and James Tynion. Worst of the bunch is either Kevin Smith's or Geoff Johns's stories.

Detective Comics #1000

By: Peter J. Tomasi, Neal Adams
Released: Mar 27, 2019

After 80 years, it's here-the 1,000th issue of DETECTIVE COMICS, the title that literally defines DC! This 96-page issue is stacked with an unbelievable lineup of talent that will take you on a journey through Batman's past, present and future...plus a sensational epilogue that features the first-ever DC Universe appearance of the deadly Arkham Kni...

I thought Kevin's was the best. Denny O'Neil was by far the worst. Geoff Johns was also disappointing for a writer I usually love.

What exactly happened in this issue? Don’t buy it! It’s literally a waste of an issue that doesn’t tell you anything and highly doubt it will come up later especially how this is just a nightmare.

Batman #67

By: Tom King, Lee Weeks
Released: Mar 20, 2019

The "Knightmares" continue as Batman chases a new foe in an impossible race. Over rooftops, across alleyways, up and down the streets of Gotham City, this lightning-fast crook outsmarts the Dark Knight at every turn. Is that because the man under the mask is someone more familiar than he knows? Artist Lee Weeks returns to BATMAN for an all-out acti...

Batman is still in dream world. This guy is dead on roof. Someones in a trenchcoat is running away. He chases the guy the whole issue through rooftops and stuff. They fall into a river. It’s revealed to be Joker. Batman asks, why he killed this guy? Joker pulls out a horn you squeeze, and he squeezes it twice. Took 45 seconds to read entire issue because there is barely any words.

I'm not sure if read Dark Nights: Metal and not liking it just made me more suspicious and critical of Snyder's writing here, or this issue is genuinely worse than the previous two. I'll probably have to come back to it later to be sure. But I feel like the tightness of the original, more metaphorical conflict is being stretched out by a more and more complicated plot.

The Batman Who Laughs #3

By: Scott Snyder, Jock
Released: Feb 13, 2019

All the pieces are starting to fit together as the Batman Who Laughs acquires another key element in his plan-one that is linked to the founding fathers of Gotham City and to a legacy started by the Wayne family and protected by none other than Oswald Cobblepot. While the Penguin goes head-to-head with the darkest version of his mortal enemy, Batma...
