The amount of cringey shit Morrison spouts here really makes this a chore. He's not nearly as clever as he thinks he is. Also, we're basically at the half of this book that sets up an ambitious task, changing the world and all that, and we're still absolutely nowhere. I have serious doubts Morrison will deliver something of substance in the next two issues, if the first two were any indication. An more

So as much as I wanted to like this, it ended on such a sour note. The Jason story had a lot of potential and while some things in it worked, especially when it comes to the relation between Jason and Bruce, some really, really didn't. The two biggest faults being that this whole comic revolved around Red Hood and Batman, 5 issues of 6 it was just the two of them assisted by Oracle from her chair. more

If current numbers for Tim Fox books are an indicator then DC will hsemoreage sales after the initial hype wears off.

Mingthemerciless - Aug 13, 2021

I never bought the"dont be stupid Bruce isn't leaving Batman is a cash cow for DC" bleating either. You're right the scraps are no longer enough. Main characters have to be used to trojan horse the agenda because no one reads scraps. Un Tim Foxs case it's his "selfless" war on privilege. Riveting reading I'm sure.
