THE GOOD:

-Wow, Ryan Ottley's art is fantastic! I just loved it.

-The fight scenes were pretty fantastic this issue.

-Nick Spencer has done so much for JJJ in these last three issues. I absolutely loved his character and development in this issue.

-I have to admit, Spider-man chucking the giant Big Man mech out of the building was pretty awesome. >
-I overall liked Spider-Man's speech to JJJ at the end. Not my favorite part, but still good.

-I thought the scene with JJJ and Fisk was great.

-I also liked JJJ at the radio station scene as well.

-Seeing Taskmaster and Black Ant again made this whole issue worth it.

-The end is very intriguing. I'm excited to see where this goes. I just hope they can make this series more focused.

THE BAD:

-I felt like Spidey's monologue recapping the events of the last issues was too long, taking up two pages.

-I didn't like the Foswell Jr. reveal. It felt like it was easy, a cop-out almost.

-The humor let me down this issue. I didn't laugh nearly as much as I felt this series can make me. more

Tomasi’s first two issues of this run came out of the gate really strong, this one started a lot slower.
it needed to make up for the lack of story from the more action and suspense based storytelling from the previous issues. it’s still a good issue though. still was cool seeing Batman actually being a detective.

Batman is called the world's greatest detective for a reason, we know that, but we rarely have an opportunity to see his detective, forensic and investigative skills being put to proper use.

all commenter bring up excellent points. True the Nolan movie lack the fantasy element to make them truly feel like like a comic adventure. the fighting was a bit bland, and Bale's Batman voice got worse as they went on. plus soume of the cop/court room drama was very pretentious. BUT there still are things i enjoy about the movies. it's been years since i've seen them, but there was a time when i'd them multiple viewings. same with the Michael Keaton Batman films. (mostly the 89 film)

myconius - Jan 18, 2019

i don't think we've ever truly gotten an actual comic faithful adaption of Batman in live action, except for the Adam West movie. (which i personally love) but it's not for everyone. i think Mask of the Phantasm was an excellent Batman film, but it's no live action. i'm keeping my fingers crossed that Matt Reeves' The Batman will be good. when i do see it (i have to see every Batman movie in the theater) i'll go in without setting my expectations overly high, and just enjoy it for what it is.

It's almost disappointing to land on a 9 here, because it could have been perfect. The first page, complete with nostalgic Snyder prose IS perfect. I'll never forget that page. But two big-time cringes (page 3 with the syringes and leaning HARD into the Bullock science mumbo-jumbo) felt like glaring, albeit brief, missteps.

Don’t think Batman Inc. was part of the New 52 lineup.

i honestly wish Batman Inc had not been part of the new52. it makes reading the tail-end Grant's run very jarring. but in Batman Inc #13 there was a really cringey line forced in with Gordon mentioning the 'Zero Year'. plus right after Damian died in issue #8 all the other Batman titles had their Robin Requiem.

Oof. I really wanted a few more pages - Bruce's reaction to the traumas he is witnessing is compelling and makes me want to pick it up again in two weeks. Mahnke wasn't as A-plus as #994, but there was great visual storytelling here. Tomasi (so far) is committed to the ground-level detective angle, which should be a crowd-pleaser for many.

"BROS BEFORE HEROES"

Probably my least favorite issue so far.
Nobody seems to grieve about the fact that a lot of heroes died and Harley Quinn is just too
sexualized (page 16, for example, was just not necessary) But overall the art was great as usual.

Booster and Blue Beetle parts were awesome and I liked the ending, seems to be going in an interesting way.

I’ll check them both out. I think there was a lot of potential with the AK comic. Tomasi could have answered unanswered questions like how exactly did Scarecrow survive& what did he do during these 2 years he was gone. Also Jason’s story could have been done better. The comics could have shown more how they planned their attack. And more importantly they shouldn’t contradict the game like Bane getting killed by Jason, while being alive in the game. So much potential, what was all wasted.
