I hate what they're doing to Nightwing. I don't care about these vigilante cops I want to see DICK GRAYSON not "RIC". The story was alright, the art was decent. I am a huge Nightwing fan and to see all these other people have his suits is driving me crazy. Change isn't always good (shouts at DC)

I loved the writing in this issue, the art went perfectly with it. The team is on the verge of breaking up (which I hope doesn't happen because I love this Team) because everyone has their own opinions about the hidden jail. Which I knew was going to happen eventually but the ending is what caught me off guard. It was the perfect segway into a whole nother chapter. Hopefully, this chapter will fix more

Tom King hasn't always hit the mark in this Batman run of his but I especially enjoyed this issue. Heartbreak can do a lot to a person and the batman is only human and Tom King is exploiting that aspect of the batman. Honestly, I rated this issue a 9 but I'm am still trying to figure out has Batman gone insane ???

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.

I was disappointed at how they just let Robin go without a fight, although her "loyal" henchman put up a fight it still was stupid in my opinion to let Robin get captured. Also, did she really think she could convince him to switch sides ??

I would really rather rate this issue an "?" because maybe I am just too dumb to get it.

Basically there's no dialog (King's favorite "Elmer Fudd" tells Batman where the person Bats was chasing went, that's all the dialog).

This is one big chase that starts at the top of a skyscraper and descends into the sewers. Bats is chasing someone who looks like the Question, only with more
