I would like to give this a 1 just to even out all the King Cult members wbo will give it a 10 but I wont do that. This issue is the epitome of what we have gotten the whole series which is nothing. You get Tom King using the majority of the issue just using a folk tale for dialogue (which he does more than write his own anymore) a story that goes nowhere, and a zero questions answered. I can not more

Batman #74

"The Fall and the Fallen" concludes with a father-and-son showdown. Flashpoint Batman reveals his fiendish reasoning for dragging Batman into the desert, and who is in the coffin they've been dragging along with them. But is this a step too far? It's Bruce Wayne versus Thomas Wayne for the right to wear the cowl, and all of Gotham City hangs in the...

Yeah, that's all I am, someone that loves Batman and loves King's run. I'd never tell anyone to kill themselves, especially over not liking a thing I like. That's absurd and awful. I'm sorry that happened to you.

Batman Jones - Jul 17, 2019

I do give King's Batman 10's but I'm genuine in doing that. And I don't give him 10's across the board. Maniax posts a 1 star review to every issue of King's Batman at midnight each Tuesday night. I'm not like that. I don't have an agenda to drag anything up or down. I just love this run. Reasonable people can/will disagree about pretty much anything. That's what makes the world go 'round.

I do not understand how people are giving this (and other books) 10/10. That is a perfect score. You are saying this book is perfect and there were no faults. Yet these people give 10s almost every book they review. It is a joke!!

This book was the usual Tom King nonsense. No build up, big wow moments that are supposed to make you think its good, pretentious dialogue, the usual random, more

more random, all-over-the-place, decompressed, pseudo intellectual gibberish.

nothing was properly set up. we are just thrust into Gotham being run by villains with Flashpoint Batman in charge of Wayne Manor and the Bat-cave.

i should have known to stay away the first time i left this series. but i allowed myself to be lured back with false hope. what's worse is so many stories leading up to this issue have been nothing more than useless filler!!

Hey now, I really liked BvS. Don’t try to tarnish that by associating it with Tom King. Lol

myconius - Jul 8, 2018

Talon1load - you're right! to be fair, i really enjoyed BvS when i saw it in the theater. i even bought the blu ray as well. but it definitely is a guilty pleasure. i can admittedly see it for all it's flaws. but as you said, it DOES NOT deserve to be lumped in with the filthy mess that is Tom King's Batman. lol
