This was amazing. I didn't expect the City of Bane to literally be a working city ruled by Bane. It was simultaneously striking, alien, and hilarious to see all the villains doing what they do in this issue.

Also the way y'know who shows up again? Perfect.

"All can be doubted. All but Bane."

Here we are, City of Bane has begun and it's a blast. After breaking the Bat in the last 25 issues, the Venom-infused giant made his move on Gotham.
This issue is divided in 3 parts :
First, we have a glimpse of the New Gotham City under Bane's reign. We see Riddler and Jocker doing detective work and it's incredibly cool to see how King h more

I love when Tony draws Batman, some people just don't like it or some people just hate it, but I like tony style and the Mitch art is awesome 10/10. The story starts strong I think big things are coming, the dialogues are good, and this issue feels like a Batman story but you know, it is a twisted Batman story. (10/10).Overall, I guess if you don't like this Batman maybe you don't find anything in more

What an epic start to this arc.

In this issue, we get to see Gotham under the control of Bane. Joker and Riddler taking on a homicide call, Hugo Strange is the commissioner and Batman is Thomas. Everything is different now and not only it is fun to read, but it also sets up the story amazingly well.

On the other side of the story, we got Bruce, on a quest to find someone who more

"...I'm still here"

Damn, that last line gave me chills.

So we see the often criticized use of a folktale from an earlier issue used as double allegory for the events of the run, and more parallels to Bane, with the climbing out of the pit. There is something really satisfying about Batman breaking out of his funk of the past like 20 issues and denying that Bane or Thomas Wa more

A lot of things here. First, the Kindred stuff. I liked it a lot. I've been calling for a while that Kindred is some form of Peter Parker, perhaps the pre-OMD Peter. The clues are mostly in his design. He's been getting redder and bluer with each appearance. His golden centipedes remind me of the Iron Spider costume. Civil War did lead into OMD...

That is 10/10, but like I said before, We know that the art has never been an issue to this book. Most of the complains about this run have one name "Tom King".

@Linkush - you're 100% right in saying that. the last we've gotten a Batman story even remotely similar, was the Kelley Jones 'KINGS of FEAR'. ...and that one was a LONG time coming. i couldn't even tell you how long it's been before that that one. ...at any rate, i'm thrilled to have gotten this story, i really hope we get more like it in the near future.
