THE GOOD:

-Hey! Mitch Gerads is here! I didn't know that! Tony Daniel's art was good, but in my opinion Gerads' was superior in its atmosphere, truly capturing the "apocalyptic" Gotham this issue is trying to sell. Plus he is not only a fantastic penciller, but a damn good color artist.

-This wasn't as bad as the last few issues.

THE BAD:

-There is no more

This book feels like it's been treading water ever since 'Ric's' injury but I liked this issue well enough. I'm much happier to read Jurgens than Lobdell and I liked the art too.

There was one major no-no, though... I think superhero comics (the ones involving secret ID's at least) should *really* avoid acknowledging facial recognition software and to the degree they just pretend it doe more

Nightwing #62

By: Dan Jurgens, Ronan Cliquet
Released: Jul 17, 2019

After the epic conclusion to the Burnback saga, it's clear that while he may have forgotten his past, Ric Grayson's innate skills and instincts as a team leader elevate Team Nightwing to a new level. But what does that mean for the Blüdhaven PD, and what does that mean for a man who is looking to live a life without the baggage of his past to ...

Agreed. I guess I'm just used to indulging in a healthy dose of suspension of disbelief with comics and somehow this particular thing of facial recognition software just took me out of that. Really hard to suspend disbelief about that.

Batman Jones - Jul 18, 2019

Even Green Arrow's beard, which is ridiculous when keeping up a secret ID, I was willing to overlook (for 50 years now) up until this one issue.

I would like to give this a 1 just to even out all the King Cult members wbo will give it a 10 but I wont do that. This issue is the epitome of what we have gotten the whole series which is nothing.

Yeah, that's all I am, someone that loves Batman and loves King's run. I'd never tell anyone to kill themselves, especially over not liking a thing I like. That's absurd and awful. I'm sorry that happened to you.

Batman Jones - Jul 17, 2019

I do give King's Batman 10's but I'm genuine in doing that. And I don't give him 10's across the board. Maniax posts a 1 star review to every issue of King's Batman at midnight each Tuesday night. I'm not like that. I don't have an agenda to drag anything up or down. I just love this run. Reasonable people can/will disagree about pretty much anything. That's what makes the world go 'round.

I love when Tony draws Batman, some people just don't like it or some people just hate it, but I like tony style and the Mitch art is awesome 10/10. The story starts strong I think big things are coming, the dialogues are good, and this issue feels like a Batman story but you know, it is a twisted Batman story.

So we see the often criticized use of a folktale from an earlier issue used as double allegory for the events of the run, and more parallels to Bane, with the climbing out of the pit.

i'm definitely in agreement with Darkseid24 here. Batman is DC's biggest cash cow, and they handed it to someone that doesn't understand or respect the character or his mythology. he's too busy breaking the character down, to the point of not being recognizable anymore. and he never shows the slightest inkling that he'll ever build him back up. Batman is supposed to be the ideal. the peak of human performance both physically and mentally. but NOT Tom King's Batman. his Batman is pathetic.
