Filler. More filler from King. At this point the entire 62 issue run has more filler than actual relevant content, and I wish that was a joke.
And also, 2 more public domain stories were just used as substitutes for this issue's lack of any story - one about three little pigs, and the other being the myth of Pygmalion and Galatea. Just put the series out of its misery, because there's 38 issu more

I didn't find it funny either. I mean, it was clearly poorly written, after all who normally calls their mom by her name? The joke indeed may have been a bit funny at first, but after few days it got old. But as with anything normies touch, it has become painfully overused.

Darkseid24 - Jan 17, 2019

Some people do indeed, but it made sense for calling her Martha, since how else would Batman know if he saved the right woman? Besides it was to show, that Superman is human.

I get it. Bruce feels bad about himself. We know that. Telling us the same point over and over again, doesn't make the story more intersting. And the twist ending really doesn't have the impact that King probably meant it to have.

The whole issue until the last couple of panels is him trying to escape from Mr. Pyg, a villain that I truly hate, not love to hate, but just hate.
>In his attempts - Bats is slung upside down in a slaughter house like a slab of beef - Bats cuts himself to the bone with a hidden batarang to escape. He fights Pyg and only really does damage when he throws Pyg's knife at him. He notes that he really only hurt Pyg by using Pyg's weapon. Pyg easily catches the thrown batarang.

There's almost no dialogue. It's all Bats in text boxes talking in present tense.

While Bruce wonders how he got into his current troubles (again King is all tell, not show) he thinks the the tale of Pygmalion - a sculptor who fell in love with his own creation, but when that creation gained life, she rejected him.

Then when Pyg is unmasked, it's Damian reciting a line from the three pigs - hair of chinny, chin chin.

IT WAS ALL A DREAM. PSYCH. More like Yawn. The art is incredibly bloody. So while well-done, I found it off-putting. But that's me. If you like a comic literally dripping in blood in every panel and full of self-mutilation and horrific violence, then this is the book for you. Psycho.

I hate dream language. No doubt things like only using the enemy's weapon works and falling too much in love with your own creation are supposed to tell us about Bruce's mental health. But that's all King has been doing - driving home the same point over and over again.

It's boring.

I am so tired of psycho Batman. I miss the days when he was smart, self-aware and a true force for good. Now it's all just "you make things worse" and "you're a driven psycho that damages everything you touch" and blood, blood, blood, bodies, bodies and more bodies.

Enough. But that's me. I am a bit of delicate flower.

Or I could be wrong. more

It's more like Spider-Geddon farewell issue, than Spider-Gwen issue. But it is a good one, so I don't have a problem with that. And it still focuses on Gwen.

In the aftermath of SPIDER-GEDDON, Gwen Stacy has a unique ability all her own - one that will set her apart from other Spiders for years to come. But with that unique power, there will also come a unique - and grave - responsibility. One that Gwen will have no choice but to bear alone...

Art was okay.

And that was the only positive about this issue. What are the negatives you may ask?

Well, first of all, nothing happens to move story forward. I get it King, 100-issue story arc is a lot of writing and it is certain that some of the issues would be filler. I'm okay with that.

Not happy with what they are doing to Harley. But “pure garbage?” Really? It’s not great but I have read much worse.

it's the amount of fanfare that DC is heaping upon this title that makes it so much worse. they are totally overselling it, and putting way more importance on it than it deserves.

There's a sweet Stan Lee in memoriam page at the very end of this comic, naturally with his signature "Excelsior!". I have a better quote, though. One that could summarize what I think of Heroes in Crisis, and what Tom King should ask DC to do with it. Or him - doesn't make a difference to me.
