I created an account on here just to give my two pence on this series.
This comic deserves a 5 based only on the art, which is phenomenal. Unfortunately, the story simply doesn't match up. I take umbrage with the pacing of the story, the convoluted manner in which it got to this point, the treatment of Wally West as a character, and the simple fact that the payoff wasn't anywhere near as good more

Yeah it was quite a mess. On the other hand it shows how lowly Bruce seems to think of Selina& Lois due to how disrespectful they acted towards Superman.

King just keeps trying to ruin these characters. why is editorial ok with this?

All throughout the issue kept on saying wtf. And not in a good way. I get that Bruce is in a dream but we literally had a Bachelor party issue. The dialogue was awful! Only reason to get this issue was the art! And the fortress of Solitude scene and the bachelor party scene were just god awful!

This is a weird issue. It's all a dream, but it plays like it's a memory of one night.

Basically, Lois and Selina go to the Fortress of Solitude to have a girl's night out/bachelorette party.

The art is fun and nice. The hi-jinks are meant to be fun, and I can't say they're terrible, but they are sort of a 1980s thing. The jokey vibe doesn't fit with King's dour Batman.

I am very conflicted here. the reason is - I liked most of the comic. I did, really. And you know why? Because it was fun, contrary to regular King's Batman comics. As a refreshing filler issue, it would be good, if not great. Heck, this is exactly what we should have gotten instead of terrible Preludes to the Wedding leading to even worse #50. But it's too little too late for a bachelorette party more

Filler. More filler from King. At this point the entire 62 issue run has more filler than actual relevant content, and I wish that was a joke.
And also, 2 more public domain stories were just used as substitutes for this issue's lack of any story - one about three little pigs, and the other being the myth of Pygmalion and Galatea. Just put the series out of its misery, because there's 38 issu more
