Would have enjoyed this issue if only the art was even somewhat decent. So many panels when the art is ruining the moment whether the changes in Bens face or Gerbil Beast Boy. But other than that great dialogue and finally the story is progressing more that we’ve had in last 4 issues. Though the possessed Gerbil Beast Boy felt a tad forced.

Well, maybe I hold it to a bit too high standard, which to me would be King's first 3 Batman arcs, all being super solid, emotional and tense.

Not to mention King’s obsession with ellipses. It’s.... extremely... frustrating. At times I can’t tell if the character is being dramatic or their out of breath. I agree too that the series has been mediocre so far. Especially since it was marketed as the best thing since sliced bread.

this is a synthetic imitation of a Batman comic.

it was laugh-out-load hysterical seeing Batman beating up that inflatable Bane doll.

and Batman socking Gordon in the mouth (though predictable) was also really funny.

this story fails as a Batman comic, but totally wins as a parody.
