Prelude:
Tomasi had a good start with the last issue but as we move further and further away from Christmas, how does this stand up?

The Good:
Always like Bruce doing detective work.

Art was good.

The Bad:
Story was hurried and wrapped itself up way too fast.

The end got a bit boring.

This issue is nothing special, but it’s not bad either. It’s the conclusion to the last one.
It’s always nice to see Batman doing some detective work, since many writers ignore this these days& thankfully the villain or rather Batman‘s opponents became a little more interesting than last issue.
I also liked, that Batman didn’t beat the monster by beating the hell out of it as more

Is this a conclusion to anything, really? If yes, then it's one hell of an uderwhelming mess looking like it was heavily rushed, not bothering to explain a single thing to us. Where's mystery, tension, plot? This issue feels like Tomasi had second thoughts about this arc and just wanted to finish it ASAP, and write something else. Strongly disappointed with this one, it feels so empty and shallow, more

It's good to read a Batman comic which was written with a plan in mind, for once. Sure, the plot so far rings the familiar bell of Arkham Origins game, but I'm definitely interested in what's going to happen next, and what kind of role will Penguin, Riddler and Bullock all play.

people needing to constantly litter this site with burner accounts shows their absolute insecurity. the funny thing is they are so salty that Tom King is no longer being on Batman (THANK GOD) that they are going out of their way to try to sabotage the scores. what the pathetic boobs do not realize is that James Tynion's (IMO) mediocre writing is going to do that all by itself. personally, i have nothing against Tynion, nor do i hold him in any high regard.

I enjoyed this issue of Batman for the most part. I didn't totally like the art. This artist tends to draw people a bit oddly. Their features lean more on the side of cartoon-ish rather then real life. But other then that I liked it. It touched on Alfred's loss without being to much in it. I enjoyed seeing Catwoman/Selena being a major player in Bruce's life still. It's a interesting twist in the more

It feels like a Batman book.

A good Batman comic? Could it be?! Well, considering it's Tynion who took over the series, I expected nothing less, but still, I was afraid Tom King's awfulness preceeding this new run could affect it more, dragging it down. That didn't happen for the most part, naturally not including Alfred's death, which up to this point, has been just pointless, it was merely shock for the sake of shock.

I don't think Selina's identity as Catwoman is as widely known among Gothamites as it is among villains and heroes (and Gordon probably, but he's infected now), but I may be wrong.

Quinn - Jan 8, 2020

If Selina has a police record, which is a matter of public record and available to Page Six gossip columnist-types, the world knows. Bruce is big news and who is acting as his wife-like hostess at a public event will be investigated by the media as a matter of course. That’s what bugs me about the Bruce-Selina romance. A problem that writers can’t deal with in a “realistic” manner if you can say that about a story featuring a man dressed as a bat.

A promising start with an interesting set-up and some wonderful action scenes.

I liked how Tynion didn't just ignore King's run and that we can see how Alfred's death affects Batman. I'm also pleased to see that Selina is still a major supporting character.

Another thing that I enjoyed was the epilogue. I really like how Tynion is setting up the Joker. I hope this will pay more

I agree in many ways with Linkush, this isn't a real ending and I was flipflopping on if I was completely satisfied with it.

Doomsday Clock may be Johns' opus magnum, and I don't think it'd be an exagerration to call the comic a masterwork. It doesn't try to cash out on the name alone, like Before Watchmen comics, or to a degree the movie, and now the TV series. It takes the mythos, and faithfully expands it, merging it with the main continuity of DC Comics, in an organic, consistent and clever way. This is where Johns' more
