I feel like I'm living through Office Space but instead of every day being the worst day of my life, ever new issue of Batman is the worst issue I've ever read. This was a lot of, just stupid dialogue. Batman was tied up and in order to get free, used a batarang, that's taped to his chest for some reason, and cut himself until it's embedded in the bone so that he can pull it off of his chest and more

Terrible issue with no forward progress and art some may find enjoyable but hurts the hell out of my eyes personally. King continues to keep the Batman book at a very below average clip.

I get it. Bruce feels bad about himself. We know that. Telling us the same point over and over again, doesn't make the story more intersting. And the twist ending really doesn't have the impact that King probably meant it to have.

The whole issue until the last couple of panels is him trying to escape from Mr. Pyg, a villain that I truly hate, not love to hate, but just hate.
>In his attempts - Bats is slung upside down in a slaughter house like a slab of beef - Bats cuts himself to the bone with a hidden batarang to escape. He fights Pyg and only really does damage when he throws Pyg's knife at him. He notes that he really only hurt Pyg by using Pyg's weapon. Pyg easily catches the thrown batarang.

There's almost no dialogue. It's all Bats in text boxes talking in present tense.

While Bruce wonders how he got into his current troubles (again King is all tell, not show) he thinks the the tale of Pygmalion - a sculptor who fell in love with his own creation, but when that creation gained life, she rejected him.

Then when Pyg is unmasked, it's Damian reciting a line from the three pigs - hair of chinny, chin chin.

IT WAS ALL A DREAM. PSYCH. More like Yawn. The art is incredibly bloody. So while well-done, I found it off-putting. But that's me. If you like a comic literally dripping in blood in every panel and full of self-mutilation and horrific violence, then this is the book for you. Psycho.

I hate dream language. No doubt things like only using the enemy's weapon works and falling too much in love with your own creation are supposed to tell us about Bruce's mental health. But that's all King has been doing - driving home the same point over and over again.

It's boring.

I am so tired of psycho Batman. I miss the days when he was smart, self-aware and a true force for good. Now it's all just "you make things worse" and "you're a driven psycho that damages everything you touch" and blood, blood, blood, bodies, bodies and more bodies.

Enough. But that's me. I am a bit of delicate flower.

Or I could be wrong. more

It's a short mystery Crisis story... in league with something like Identity Crisis, but much better so far. This story has far more personality, while balancing its dramatic themes well and clearly with imposing force. But, if you hate the characterizations I guess there would be no saving this one for you. I just think writers should have a chance to work with characters that are more malleable, and not bound by other interpretations in such a rigid way.

Darkseid24 - Jan 3, 2019

In my opinion Identity Crisis is a far better story than HiC. Identity Crisis qquestioned the heroes methods, but there is no real plot in HiC yet apart from deaths for shock value.

The analysis is just what happened in the comic. In the end, it was just to get Mathew back in people minds and off to Arkham to team up with bane and really, Thomas Wayne. Problems though are why is this kid not already in Arkham and it's not because he's a kid since he looks to be in a general jail...blackgate?

I think it's a small inconsistency. In today's Drowned Earth we can see one panel where Titans with Garth are helping in Japan, where in last week's Titans, that takes place at the same time, they get separated. Garth stays behind and Titans boom room to somewhere. Things like that just happen. If Penguin would die, I would have a problem with this, but as long as his head was still attached to his shoulder and no one declared him dead, I can live with inconsistencies like that.

I don’t believe Ivy is dead yet, but being queer isn’t the reason, why she shouldn’t die. It’s because she is a popular character& deserves better. Harley& Joker were way more fun together. It’s Harleys own fault, that she followed Joker. She enjoyed killing people, Joker didn’t force her to do that. Since he broke up with him, she turned into an annoying& ridiculously overpowered character, while Ivy became lame. Nowadays both are portrayed as hypocrites.

the Nightwing series from the 90's definitely had it's high points, but they were smart about it. they kept the story loosely still tied to events in Gotham fairly often. it didn't feel as divorced from the Bat-family as say the majority of the new52 or rebirth nightwing series. neither one of those ever reached the level of being as entertaining as the 1996 series. one of DC's biggest problems is taking great supporting characters and trying to branch them into their own series.

Batman #53

By: Tom King, Lee Weeks
Released: Aug 15, 2018

"Cold Days" continues! The jury in the Mr. Freeze trial is hopelessly deadlocked because one man won't vote guilty-and that man is Bruce Wayne. Freeze's defense is that Batman used excessive force, making his arrest illegal, and Bruce is the one man who actually knows for sure what went down between Batman and his ice-cold nemesis. And if Bruce is ...

As you may have expected, everything we've een in last few issues got resolved - there was no real stakes or tension compared to Flashpoint, which in a similar matter introduced an alternate, dystopian timeline, but even after Barry returned to his time, things were different. On the other hand, King pulled off some real dramatic moments and perfectly captured Booster's goofy personality, with rea more

"THE TRAVELERS" part three! As Booster Gold, Batman and Catwoman zero in on the time anomaly, what they find and their actions to correct it will have ramifications on all of the DC Universe. Tom King and Master Class artist Tony S. Daniel end their first story with a bang that will tee up the next big development in the Batman/Catwoman romance.

Can you elaborate Jim?

DC Stuff - May 17, 2018

Tom King announced his Sanctuary story where heroes and villains go for treatment for PTSD and mental issues. Tom King seems to have used the Everyone Loves Ivy and this story to set up Ivy and Booster to be part of it.

Welcome to the Oblivion Bar where the first round is on me and the pretzels are free! Be warned: like the pickled eggs at the bar, this issue is going to get SPOILED rotten.

Ok, so here goes. Let’s unwrap up this gift shall we!?! We open with Bruce, and probably some of his Waynetech peeps, trying to fix Skeets so they can go back in time. Skeets reboots only to find that Boosters v more

We get what so many wanted yet still we complain. Haters are gonna hate. T-Swift said that but I’m sure Jesus said it first..... anyway... I had fun with it and think it was amazing. I hope you all look at his arc with your glass being both half full and half empty because technically.. it’s both. If you like what you heard, love talking all types of comics, and are interested in joining a comic chat group, hit me up at dispatchdcu@gmail.com or @dispatchdcu on twitter. Catch you all later!

Nice review as always! I am actually just upset that Tom king has used this story just to set up Booster to go into his upcoming sanctuary stories...i dont like a ptsd booster, but this 3 issue arc was less wedding present and more to make booster insane

Let’s dive in to this litter box shall we. We open one year later with Booster being stuck in this alternate timeline. Gotham is in utter chaos, War is everywhere and Thomas Wayne feels like he’s FAILED THIS CI more

"THE TRAVELERS" part two! Booster Gold's wedding present has screwed up Batman's past, and done even more damage to his present. Now, with the Caped Crusader himself refusing to cooperate, the only way for Booster to correct this runaway timeline is to get Catwoman on his side. But with her own past altered, can he make Catwoman recognize the quali...

Normally, I like to give a rundown of what happened but in all honesty, we can probably explain that REAL quick. We simply look at Scott and Barda juggling the war on Apokolips with being parents. The end.

Mister Miracle #8

By: Tom King, Mitch Gerads
Released: Apr 18, 2018

This issue, it's back to Apokolips-and a return to war. Scott Free is engaged in a bloody battle against Darkseid's forces, this time without Barda by his side-because her hands are full, thanks to a domestic situation at home. With his attention split by his concerns for his wife's commitments back on Earth, can Mister Miracle hold his own against...

Can I put this up as a "second opinion" review? My theory is still that mister miracle is Tom king himself...started a family whole being in the CIA and called back to fight war on terror. And the bit where Batman kills babies is,the idea he was too busy writing the first year of Batman that he missed a bunch of his kids baby years. Also, he did start writing the series after having a panic attack/near death experience kind of like mister miracles at beginning.

You can certainly put it up as a second opinion.
