Just okay. It was a pretty interesting concept, but wrapped up too quickly and neatly. Could have been better.

Just fine again. If the rumors are true and a new creative team is taking over after 100, I would welcome that instead. Tynion's first 2 issues just feel very by the basics run of the mill Batman, which is fine, especially after the divisiveness of King's 85 issue run. The art is also just fine, which is disappointing after the incredible run of artists during King's run (hate that run all you more

I didn't include his name because honestly I forgot that he drew in that run too which says enough I guess

I agree with your assessment about this run so far.

Not digging it as much as I was Tom King's run, but it is alright. Is it just me or does it seem like Tynion IV is going for another big masterplan immediately after City of Bane? It almost feels like he is telling the same story we just heard, but minus the stylistic writing or depth that came with it. Overall it is an enjoyable but completely disposable Batman so far.

There are some plot points seemingly being reused from earlier in the run, but it does seem like it is going elsewhere based on the "Next" cliffhanger and that could lead to an interesting arc.
