If you're going to do exposition, this is how you do it. The full background that we don't often get in new characters. Also, Walker's rendering of Batman is really unique and I respect it - it looks almost like a different series from some of the other characters in a Neal Adam-ish way.

The artwork worth the issue. Is the classic villain origins tale but I like what Tomasi did with this Arkham Knight character, clearly the timeline and ages of the Batman characters has some issues but I don´t have a big problem with that. On the other hand, the Arham Knight's motives for attacking Batman were developed in an acceptable way, so a good issue.

Now that's what I call a hell of a good origin story. For the most part, because there's few elements of it I don't necesarily enjoy.

It was a great idea to humanize Arkham prisoners. I'm really tired of the "good versus evil" war, with one side not having and flaws and the other not having any redeeming qualities. Let the DCU be more grey where it can be, because the constant pursuit o more

Another very enjoyable issue.

Just as I expected, this issue was an origin story for Arkham Knight and it was pretty cool. I find it interesting to see someone raised by villains, It makes sense that she hates Batman. I also really enjoyed seeing the more human side of Joker and the others. I think it was a good origin story that made me like Arkham Knight a bit more as a villain.

Spidey makes a decision, and it did not go as expected -- we've seen this one plenty of times. But it's executed really well here, and with the next issue being a conclusion of Hunted, I am really excited to read it.

Really good issue. I feel like Spencer is really hammering home the Peter/MJ relationship and all that *should* have been. I don't know, maybe I was just reading too much into the part about responsibility and children. But Peter's last thoughts being about MJ were a nice touch.

Decent.

We get to see Batman gather up the Bat-family and preparing to fight Bane, and we also get to see him finally face Bane again. I really enjoyed the mood of this issue, feels like something really big is about to happen. The narrative was a bit confusing at times but I liked the non-linear approach.

Not the best issue by any means, but it's getting better. I am enjoying the story, especially now that the members of the Bat-family are included as well. Bruce seems to be going mad, and it shows. Of course, due to this, the issue was a bit confusing at some parts, as it seems to be following a non-linear plot. Some of the characterisation was a bit off, which is quite a common thing in this book more

Yes Bat-family. Yes moody shadows. Yes emotional turmoil.
Biggest minus? The last line was a little on-the-nose.

THE GOOD:

-What happened here?! Oh, I think I figured it out. Tom Taylor must have written last issue's back up story, planning for it to be the main comic, and what was the main issue last time was supposed to be the backup. That's definitely it. I definitely didn't misjudge the quality of this series. Not at all.

That's a promising start for sure. Didn't blow me away, but certainly has its fair share of potential. Every main character deals with their own problems that hopefully will be addressed properly in the series, and from the get-go there is a tension in between this unlikely bunch of vigilantes.

Wow! From the premise I thought it would be a little more contrived, but it was surprisingly organic and witty. The only points off come from a little bit of "sketchy/cartoony" looking art, but it's a step up from Taylor's Injustice, and the artists did a remarkable job with the "camera" placement to orient to all the different settings/people.

Darkseid24 - May 5, 2019

You could be right with Psycho Pirate, but nothing was shown in the story yet& it would be nice, if King gave us these explanations. I personally think Psycho Pirate is a lame villain& I don’t know, why King treats D villains better than the A villains. I also think Bane controlled or rather used the villains way better in Knightfall. Not to mention, that each villain had a great storyline back then. They were portrayed as a real threat, but like a big joke in Kings run. There are many flaws.
