Batman #66

By: Tom King, Jorge Fornes
Released: Mar 6, 2019

The "Knightmares" storyline continues! Something-or someone-is forcing Batman to live through some of his darkest fears, amplifying the Dark Knight's anxieties and reimagining some of his worst traumas. Now that Batman has become aware of the nature of these delusions, he must find a way to break through and find out the source of this disruption. ...

Surprisingly fantastic, in my eyes. Given that my biggest concern with the previous issue was the piecemeal approach to setting of the story, this issue was incredibly focused. A large part of the narrative dealt with the complexities of repairing friendship after a rupture, and Williamson captured it well. The Gothams made their presence felt and I am looking forward to, rather than apprehensive more

I'm coming around to this book. Still upset about Wally. Superman's speech was very well written. If you don't feel the emotions in this chapter I don't know what to tell ya especially with the last page. Clay Mann may very well be one of the absolute best artists in the entire comic business.

Things went about as well as they could for an international super-criminal, particularly now that Catwoman has established herself as a major player in her new town.

This issue was everything I want out of a Justice League title.

Snyder and friends are making the DCU more expansive than it's ever been before. And I particularly love the "all bets are off" when it comes to otherwise retired/limbo-bound characters and history.

This issue reminded me of nothing so much as why Justice League has always been my favorite comic book, though it's more

So did God send Ktar back? Such a weird conceit underlying a really interesting idea for the why in Carter's life. But how does the woman figure into it? Sooner or later, Vendetti has got to bring Kendra into the story.

Superman is in great hands with Bendis. I'm enjoying Action more than Superman but I'll buy and enjoy almost anything Ivan Reis draws for more than 2-3 issues. Rogol Zaar leaves me cold as a big bad.

What a pay-off! This is my favorite Venditti-written series I've read. Hitch's art is always delicious. But the real headline is that we finally have a Hawkman series/origin that's clear, grand as hell, and one that warrants a long run. I've always loved Hawkman but I haven't loved any modern Hawkman title, including Johns' whom I usually enjoy a lot. This feels to me like the best Hawkman series more
