i liked the series for the most part. everyone being ok with jorel, a guy who hates humans, just taking the family on a space safari seems pretty stupid. but it didnt damper my feelings towards the series. why?

because supermans been a little bitch for a while now. theyve basically rewritten continuity to include his pussyass personality. plus, DC has no one editing or overseeing these more

Dissapointment. Story Has Been building up for 20 issues, and we have very childish reason, well spoken and written, but still childish.

Edit. My copy got glued, and I didn't realised how little content is here. There is about only 19 real pages. Most of it are pin, up which are really boring.

2 years of investment, months of hype and advertisement, tie-ins, multiple covers, midnight releases, even a friggen Spotify wedding playlist and now we’re left with a vague tweet hinting that things MIGHT work out for them in the next 50 issues

As another reviewer put it, this is comics snake oil at its prime. DC Comics should be ashamed of themselves for the marketing campaign alone more

Joker puts a gun to Batman’s head and Batman just stops. Then Joker threatens to kill himself and not only does Batman stop again, but he kneels down next to him as asked. Has Tom King ever read a Batman comic? Has he read any DC book ever? He has no feel for the characters. Makes them act completely out of character. I did like the maniacal, homicidal Joker.

This was such a waste. After a really solid Joker story in DC Nation #0, somehow Joker goes from menacing to just trite. It felt like Batman didn't even try to stop Joker.

i'm really not sure what Tom King was trying to achieve with this comic. i agree 100% about the monologue. it went nowhere. i didn't even bother to finish reading the man's overly long prayer in the beginning as it was so obvious that he was going to be killed anyway. even the Joker story in DC Nation #0 was very predictable like that. it was so obvious that Joker was just going to torment the guy then kill him anyway.

This is clearly a very divisive run. Everyone should keep their head about it. Some people like Tom King's style (me) and others don't. I do understand some of the complaints about his characterization of Batman, but I personally enjoy King's writing enough to ignore it. It is a different Batman, but that is okay imo.

i found the funniest part of this comic not in any of the Joker’s jokes. no. not at all. what made me laugh was how spectacularly Batman failed at everything he did in this issue.
