this is a joke, right?
this was supposed to be a joke?

why is DC trying to force Tom King on the Batman series for 100 issues?
the man didn’t even have 50 good issues in him, let alone 100.
DC really needs to find someone who actually understands Batman,

Yeah, being suspicious doesn’t really have anything to do with being fearful. Hadn’t really paid much attention to that but you’re right. Should definitely have been superstitious.

i mean it is kind of a minor thing, but that tiny attention to detail i notice quite a bit. especially since i've read so many of these classic stories in reprints over and over as a kid.
