Red Hood and the Outlaws #25

By: Scott Lobdell, Trevor Hairsine
Released: Aug 8, 2018

Batman versus Red Hood for the right to fight in Gotham-grab your ringside seat for the battle 25 years in the making! Jason Todd broke a promise to his mentor, and must now confront an angry and betrayed Batman. That means a good time for readers, but probably not so much for Jason: it's likely going to take more than the Outlaws' help in order fo...

Teen Titans #20

By: Adam Glass, Bernard Chang
Released: Jul 25, 2018

Batman has no idea what he's doing. Superman? Not a clue. Wonder Woman? Whatever. Damian Wayne is Robin, and he's done with the bleeding-heart approach favored by the heroes of the senior circuit. New plan of action: recruit a new Teen Titans. Kid Flash, Red Arrow and newbies Roundhouse, D'jinn and...wait, Lobo has a daughter? That'll end well. And...

Calling it now:
Talia somehow mixed both Bruce and Slade's DNA together, therefore Deathstroke and Batman would technically be biologically his fathers. This would preserve Damian and Bruce's relationship while creating a new one with Deathstroke. It would also explain why both Batman and Deathstroke tested positive in Damian's DNA test, even though Bruce thinks his was faked. I think that th more

Deathstroke #33

By: Christopher Priest, Carlo Pagulayan
Released: Jul 4, 2018

Forced to team with Deathstroke, a man he loathes, Damian Wayne must discover the truth of his lineage. Is he really Bruce Wayne's son, or is Slade Wilson his true father? As Batman draws closer to finding them both, Deathstroke must complete a hit, while Robin shadows the killer for hire.

Absolute trash. We have all these preludes and specials for something that doesn't happen. This was a marketing stunt, plain and simple. Tom King says his arc is 100 issues. So what? That gives you a free pass not to be criticized? I was never a fan of King's run, but was actually thinking this could be somewhat good, to see Batman in a different light than ever before. But no.

The wedding night's barely over, but Catwoman's back on the streets, this time to expose a copycat who's pulling heists around Gotham City. As Selina cracks the whip on her former criminal cohorts, she's attracting unwanted attention from one of Gotham's most dangerous groups. The mob? Nope. Try the GCPD.

Ok. So, this is slightly better than the previous issue. I still don’t care for it. What is King trying to do? Reminisce about the “good old days” of Batman villains? Won’t Batman be a little pissed that Catwoman went for the kill? Is she “jokerized” or something? When did Joker poison Batman? Quit making Batman so inept. Quit trying to be clever and meta and write a comic Batman fans more

Bored...I’m bored. This conversation has gotten fairly pointless. I don’t think anyone is going to change anyone else’s mind. Aether is obviously a troll that has drank the Tom King cool-aid. Some people like King’s Batman and others do not. I do not. I will continue to think that way and rate his comics that way. At least until he changes my mind.

Tom-king cool aid? I didn't even like Omega Men. His only other comic I've read. So far he's 1 for 2 in my mind. also yeah, I'm done with this thread, we got way off topic. We should just stick to talking about issue 49.

The whole thing is messed up. King has really good concepts, but the execution is just horrible. No substance! He just builds an arc around a wow moment. And this series dosen't humanize Batman at all. He let Alfred tell his son(s) that he was getting married!

myconius - Jun 7, 2018

i agree. it's all just lazy set-up for a cheap shock moment. no, this Batman definitely does not feel humanized. the way he let Joker just kill the last hostage then still mindlessly went to pray with Joker. he feels more like a Zombie or a Robot.

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. Joker kills everyone right in from of Batman, and Batman still wants to kneel down and pray with Joker, but gets blown up. that was hilarious! :D
