Batman #71

By: Tom King, Mikel Janin
Released: May 15, 2019

"The Fall and the Fallen" continues! Will it be father and son working together, or tearing each other apart? When it comes to the Waynes, expect a little of both. In the quest to get Bruce Wayne to hang up the cape and cowl, Thomas Wayne is going to have to use a little tough love. Only, not all the muscle behind it will be his own.

Shazam! #5

By: Geoff Johns, Dale Eaglesham

In the latest chapter of "Shazam and the Seven Magic Lands," the kids visit the Gamelands, a colorful world of races and games where all that matters are your high scores! But as good as Pedro and Eugene are with their arcade cred, can they score high enough to survive it?

This story arc continues to be disappointing& I’m happy, when it’s finally over.
On the positive side Bruce& Damien are both well written, in character& their interaction is good. I also love the art.
On the negative side we get some plot progression, since the identity of the new Arkham Knight is finally revealed& it’s a big disappointment.

I like the character of The Batman Who Laughs. I love the creative team. I genuinely don't get why people are geeking out on the series.

Not saying I'm right and others are wrong. Probably it's the other way around. But every month I hope and believe I'll dig this book and I haven't yet.

The purpose of a villain in a superhero story is to challenge the hero, make them embrace their best self, grow and learn. None of that can happen when a random sleection of baddies is being taken down one by one by a hero so overpowered he puts Arya Stark to shame.

Haha I would be totally fine with Bane killing Thomas, since I hate that guy. I rather hope we don’t get some dramatic reunion between son& father. Overall it makes no sense to me, that Thomas is even there. There is zero explanation.

myconius - May 14, 2019

exactly! we've been wondering how Thomas is there or why he'd be helping Bane against his own son. King probably just threw that in there as a mystery box, and now has no idea what to do with it. the whole scenario is just dumb beyond dumb.

It's not a bad thing to have a lot to tie up. I personally think he has the tools, skills, and the knowledge to tie it up nicely for those of us who do enjoy his writing.

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.

Batman 68 was a waste, HIC 8 was ok, but nothing groundbreaking or deep character exploration. I mean how? The way the fear gas reacted made zero sense& so did Bruce’s „nightmares“. They didn’t fit his character at all. Writing characters out of character isn’t groundbreaking, it’s just bad writing.
