Prelude:
Tales from the Dark Multiverse has been an interesting title that generally does well.... But, having been a tad late to the party, these reviews so far don't look good. Here we go.

The Good:
Wow, never thought I had to put "nothing" here.

The Bad:

The dialogue isn't well done. It's hard to understand which is worry more

maybe Alfred wouldn't have died if Bruce didn't leave him in danger in the first place. this really makes Bruce look like a complete failure. how is it that Alfred was even a prisoner of Bane's in the first place?

@myconius this beach scene was one of the dumbest in Comic Book history. I hate Bruce for relaxing& making weird fitness poses with Selina while Alfred was brutally murdered. He doesnt get any sympathy from me. I thankfully can borrow Comics from a friend. I only buy the ones I really like, but since they are all trash lately DC saves me a lot of money.

I've seen porn movies with more plot than this disaster of a comic. Once more, King tries (and fails) to mask lack of an actual plot with a second narrative, pretending its poetic themes match whatever's happening on the issue's pages. And also, once more, he ends a meaningless, shallow comic on a cliffhanger teasing what may come... and eventually, I can bet, it won't. I've been burne too many ti more

@myconius I would save Joshua McDonald from Batman News. I think he brings very honest reviews. And what about all that "people" coming just to give a 10 without any explanation just helping to save the people rate from our 1 point reviews? If not for those dubious "people" the ratings would be as low as around 2 points but right now is around 6 points.

still ridiculous how Tom King thinks that Flashpoint Batman is well enough trained to take down the entire Bat-family by himself. Tom King also is under the misconception that Bane is nothing more than a muscle-headed oaf. the explanation for why Bane has it in for Batman is weak at best. barely even a reason.

This issue exists only to promote Naomi and draw people to that title. It’s hardly about Superman despite it being one of his main ongoings, as thusly I would not recommend it to anyone interested in him. Last issue was serviceable, this one is not.

As a Superman book it fails to deliver, it showcases him losing to a C-list villain only to have Naomi show him up and save the day. >
The art doesn’t really work and the dialogue contains some lines which are facepalm-inducing; a stand-out among them being Batman stating “I’m Batman” to have Naomi’s mother reply with “Damn right you are”. Has this man ever engaged in actual conversation.

The premise of the issue, red cloud being a threat, is laughable as she should hardly register within Superman’s radar. However, as he is wont to do bendis forces his creation’s to be the “best”. more

Well, you’re not SUPPOSED to like what he did. But given that he was shell shocked and the story was showing how superheroes can have mental damage and stuff, you can’t say it didn’t make sense. So there’s that. Also, Barry doesn’t know HOW to help Wally. That’s why Wally was frustrated. He blamed Barry and Barry couldn’t come up with a solution so he tried to repeat Barry’s mistake. This is all in the comics if you read them.

Understood and appreciated. I suppose the variance between your score and mine (6.5) is that you chose to penalize King's writing, which I actually thought was among his more intelligible, and not reward perhaps the best artwork in any DC book this week. Seriously, the art was a 6 on a 5 scale. I'm not saying you are wrong for your stance -- perhaps I was with mine? And then there is the meta-issue of how King could totally isolate the couple from the atrocities taking place in Gotham!

Yeah, the art was fantastic. Simply breathtaking. I decided to penalize King strongly, as you assumed, because not only nothing happened in the issue, it was also super stiff and forced. That's the worst kind of filler. So, story and dialogues are 0/10 in my book, the art 10/10, so average 33%.

1.0

an absolutely pathetic excuse for a Batman comic!!

the only thing this comic was missing was Catwoman tying Batman up in bondage with a gag-ball in his mouth, then spanking his fanny with a paddle until he said "Thank you Mistress Catwoman. May i have another?"

this has nothing to do with the issues before it.

I‘ve just read in an interview, that Kings run was cancelled, because his story didnt fit with the events, since the last 12 issues only will be Batman/ Catwoman& thats why he got his own mini series. Quite disappointing & boring, if the last issues wouldn’t have adressed City of Bane, but a lame love story

Darkseid24 - i'm not sure i believe that. i think they are trying to spare him the humiliation of booting his ass off this terrible run. it's good they ended it and saved him from embarrassing himself even further with his pathetic attempts at trying to be epic. the only thing he does that is epic is fail.
