Batman: Last Knight on Earth #3

By: Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo
Released: Dec 18, 2019

Gotham City has been remade. Omega reigns supreme. Can Batman finally accomplish what no other hero has and free the world from his dark reflection's shadow? Or is it too late for the recreated Caped Crusader?

Well. That was bad.

Like actually bad.

Terrible even.

Alfred is dead for no reason. And it just didn't feel like it. No one seems to mourn him. What exactly happened to the batfamily? Are they okay?

So, Selina and Bruce got married. Yay.

But my grodd was this a slow and terrible run. And I'm glad it is over. If 35 issues of this were this slow more

thank god this pathetic P.O.S. Batman run is finally over!!

leave it to Tom King to riddle his "grand" finale with a juxtaposition of something totally non-consequential to the climax. this comic is ALL over the place! does he think he's being clever?
i can't believe he re-used the Catwoman gag from ‘I am Suicide’. it was dumb the first time, and even more cringe-worthy now th more

No, Tom King, throwing incoherent shit, glueing it up with no context and pretending it has a message is not writing. 85 issues, and everything you've set up at the beginning, every promising thing, went to complete disrepair, and in some cases was just abandoned. Example? Gotham Girl killing Batman - remember when she, herself, teased that in the first arc of the series? If you do, well, you're o more

Detective Chimp - Dec 19, 2019

You mean in main continuity @myconius? Because I remember in main continuity he died long time ago in 60's smashed by a rock when saving the life of the Dynamic Duo and then soon returned as a very weird rogue named The Outsider. In Dark Knight Returns Alfred dies at the end. And recently he died in Injustice killed by Zaz for Superman order. And maybe there are another 1 or 2 times outside main continuity but right now I don't remember at all.

myconius - Dec 24, 2019

@Detective Chimp - yeah. in the main continuity. he sacrificed himself to save Brice & Dick, and was replaced by Aunt Harriet, then due to Alfred's popularity they just brought him back. i suspect somewhere down the road DC will be widdling Alfred being alive back into continuity, after they're done trying to capitalize on ALFRED R.I.P. ..not sure if i want to actually waste $4.99 on that.

This is great! Snyder delivered the type of Batman story that I wanted and has the markings of being on the same caliber as Court of Owls. Love how he tied elements from his time on Batman into this. The weakest point was definitely the art, while mostly good, having different artists jump in at random times was jarring. I'm looking forward to the Casting and the Metal event more than before.

The better Batman book this week. Batman takes some time to explain a story about him an Harvey Dent that was really interesting and there are some flashbacks that tie in to the present day story. This issue is probably the best issue of this series so far. Scott Snyder is returning to his form from the New 52.
