This is for sure a stand out issue for sure. From the fantastic art to the eye bulging cliffhanger, picking #978 up is a great idea.

I enjoyed how the relationship between Batman and his former partner is written and played out. We see that even though Tim has served independently before and with great success, Bruce still has to remind him to slow down and look at the little strings th more

Good solid read. I wish the book would've had more of a 'This is gonna be big' feel, but all in all I enjoyed the overall story. Although some may dislike the art, I rather like the style (though there was a few pages where it seemed a bit off).

The conflict within the bat family's ranks is interesting to me and I have a great time seeing how it is played out so well on the more

Things started to move forward after Clayface's death and initial collapse of the team resulted by it. New arcs are set up and some characters take new, lonesome paths, but overall the issue did not feel like either an end of the old, or a beginning of something new. It's a connective tissue between what was, and what will be, meaning as an element of series, it's necessary and welcomed, but as a more

I think that as usual, the art is amazing and really does all it can do to redeem the book, but sadly, in my opinion, it was not enough to completely carry the load. I'm not saying King can't write, but he's just not my favorite when handling the Bat himself. I actually rather like his portrayal of Catwoman and understand that a person in love reacts different than a loner, but sometimes in this b more

Ugh Tom Kings Batman has become boring. I want Batman to be a savage that stalks criminals in the night. Batman is not interesting to me when he’s in a relationship. This is a broken human with issues. Nobody reads Batman to see him attempt to be “happy”. I understand King is trying to do something different with Batman but it’s not working for me.

Promising start to a new arc, but this was so short that I can't even comment much. I am probably a minority, but I really enjoy Janin's art, and it definitely was very good here.

I think that this introduction is over amplified for the situation. A story that should've only taken a few pages took up the entire book. I likewise wasn't very fond of entire panels and pages taken up to show scenes that could've been presented in a far smaller space. As usual, the art is top grade; pages 5-7 being among my favorites.
