This is how King has Batman characters win. They get beat on and beat on, and once the attackers get all tuckered out from pummeling the victim, the victim then turns around, all bloody and beaten, and hits them once and they drop like a sack of potatoes.

Apparently, in King's world, there's not such thing as broken noses, concussions, internal bleeding , damaged backs, knees and hands. more

No shock here....more garbage by Tom King! As I've said before, he can't leave this title soon enough. The art is also well below average, so this month the art can't even help the book at all.

Wait. I thought Catwoman standing Bruce up "broke" him? Now he says his brokenness was part of a master plan? So that means he proposed, knew he would get stood up, and even knowing that, let it "break" him? HUH???

Also, the "epiphany" Batman had about needing others to help him? The guy is in more groups (JLA, Outsiders) than anybody else, and he's been relying on his support family - more

Come on King, you have 4 more issues left, you can't do a recap now, that's not the right time.
Even the little bit of progress we did get was unsatisfying because Bruce's plan doesn't make any sense. And on top of that, the art was underwhelming and boring to look at.

What a waste of time.

I like majority of Black Label titles, but apart from the cursing nothing is in it, that justifies Black Label. Doug Moench wrote good stories& he wrote Detective Comics& Batman both for a while. So I think writers can, if they actually are talented enough.

This is the THIRD issue of this type in this run. It was lazy every single time. The way you properly set up a twist like that is that you foreshadow it. You leave connections and clues. You don't just think it up, not bake it into the background of the story, and then at the end go "Aha! I'm so smart!" I don't understand how anyone could read this and think it's good. And, by the way, I called it more

I think that the next thing Tom King should tackle is the X-Men. To hell with Hickman, Tom King should write X-Men. His ability to tell a "story" without actually telling one is truly Uncanny.

oh for pete's sake!!!
the painfully obvious back-peddaling that this issue starts with
just proves that Tom King had NO plan of what the heck he's doing.

King never bothered to read Flashpoint to learn that Thomas Wayne uses his guns
to make up for the fact that he lacks the years of training that Bruce had.
