Exquisite.

Batman #79

By: Tom King, Clay Mann
Released: Sep 18, 2019

In the concluding chapter of the two-part "City of Bane" interlude, Batman and Catwoman pull a job to stop Bane's supply ship from smuggling dangerous cargo into Gotham City. It'll send a message back to the big guy that his reign of terror is soon to be over...but what does it also signal for the future of Bruce and Selina?

Just great. The only problem now is that there's only one issue left. I feel like this series could have been twice as long and would be all the better for it, with the obvious caveat of how long it's taken to get to #11. I'm happy that Johns is involved with DC film and TV but boy do I miss him as a full-time comic book writer. I love a lot of DC's writers over the last 20 years but I probably lo more

For 10 issues straight, we've been asking many questions about the series, its plot, potential endgoal and impact on DC Comics. How is it all connected, what motivate the main cast? There's still left to wonder, but let me tell you - #11 answers a lot. More than expected, in fact, showing us how intricate, detailed and interconnected its story is, really. It's not just a prelude to the finale, it' more

Hi, Ni.. hmmm... interesting. Let me ask you, Did you able to follow the story? That also another complaint which some people have that it's kinda uneven/hard to follow. And, the funny thing is, Some are worried about the conclusion. I hope that Geoff johns delivers.

Nihilist - Sep 6, 2019

If you know Watchmen, and have the basic understanding of DC's universe, you should be fine. It's still a multilayered comic, with plenty of parallel arcs and themes going on, but so far, it's been pretty competently explained, I think.

It just keeps getting better. And Tony Daniel's contributing the best work of his career. I've always liked his art well enough but he's been out of this world on this arc. I've loved the slow burn/long game of King's run but we're nearing the endgame now and pace has really picked up and the urgency has too. The last two issues have been fantastic.

King really made me hate Thomas more than I already did, so as for me I hope he does die a painful death or gets erased again ( not that we finally would have an explanation why Thomas even is in that timeline) I don’t care much for Gotham Girl. He character is pointless& her beating Captain Atom was just dumb.

This is damn good comics. Snyder gets better and better. I found his Batman run to be mediocre apart from the Court of Owls arc, but Metal was good, Batman Who Laughs has been very good, Justice League has been great, and Last Knight on Earth has been super-great.

What a wasted opportunity. This could have been a City of Bane tie-in that might have connected some of the dots. Instead, in the middle of a major 'Villains Take Over Gotham" arc, we got a forgettable collection of shorts that could have come out in any of the last 30 years or so. The Risso art was nice but there was nothing else at all to distinguish this issue. .

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.
