I really liked it.

I can already see people complaining about how this is filler but I think that it's good to finally have a more laid back issue that focuses on Bruce and Selina's relationship, especially after they were separated for so long. I thought that it was well written, heartwarming and beautiful. The art is so good I don't think I know a word to describe how good it is. And more

^^This! And even though it's an interlude, it's still crucial to the overall story. It answers the thesis to King's entire run: can Bruce be happy and still be Batman?

Talon1load - Sep 13, 2019

Bruce HAS been happy before. And this idiotic interlude is only important because King is forcing it to be. It still makes zero sense. Why did those guys even know what could beat Bane? Nothing makes sense.

Not bad, it is funny how it feels legitimately desperate. I still have a problem with Gwenpool's characterization. She was never this Deadpoolish.

It is 2019. You don't need to explain the definition of "insanity" anymore, even though you said crazy... and I know crazy and insanity are splitting hairs. It is a total cliche at this point. Also, the villagers are seriously throwing molotov cocktails at a demonic creature with its head and ribcage on fire, I would say the definition of stupidity should apply to them, but it actually seemed to s more

Doublechecked. So you are right, he did meet Jay Garrick, but he kept forgetting his name as he stood in front of him and by the end he didn't remember him anymore.

The 20 Issue Ceiling - Sep 12, 2019

It is probably similar to how Wally could only exist if someone was his "lightning rod" and remembered everything about him.

That was a beautiful issue and actually really captures the loneliness, and dodging, of a relationship with hurt on both sides.
