Very great start to a very interesting story. You can tell Johns is pulling from several different types of stories for inspiration but still feels fresh. I really enjoyed it

These two are like Batman and Robin, this book reads smoothly. Art work is excellent, story flows nicely. This was my favorite read of the week. Although some of the stuff (no spoilers) had me asking myself questions, hopefully those questions will be addressed next issue.

What can I say? King's weaknesses as a writer are out in full force in this issue.

We are now a third through this story line and we know virtually nothing. Andrea Beaumont, for all intents and purposes, is a new character and we know nothing about her, her relationship with Bruce and her relationship with Selina. There is the movie, but this is her comic's debut and it's been a long ti more

Agree 200% with not knowing Phantasm! I see the same thing starting with Red X in Teen Titans Academy. Introducing a cartoon character into the comics should be a big deal, but Tom King seems like he is too lazy to do any of the leg work and just hopes you watched the movie!

Don’t know why King keeps pushing this relationship between Catwoman and joker. A lot of other issues with the story, pretty boring read. Would have gave this a much lower grade but Clay Mann has really put this mini series on his back.

How can a book go from so good to this bad! The first issue was great, good build up, climax and ending. The cliffhanger was great and I was so excited to buy this issue. This issue was bland, the fight scene with the other guy was dull. The ending was the most boring thing I’ve ever read in my life.

And future State, it had some good parts and I drop everything, you don't really miss a thing.

Mingthemerciless - Mar 4, 2021

Future didnt really interest a lot of DC readers and it's probably fair to say it was too late for DC to change this issue away from the FS storyline its hinting at. But from what I'm hearing Tynion has been given the Batverse to oversee and hes clearly not up to the task. Batman is my favorite character and I waited for Snyders final run then Kings abysmal run to end so that I could start enjoying the book again. DC gave it to Snyders protege who has not even a fraction of the talent to fix it

Quinn - Mar 6, 2021

Mingthemerciless, glad someone gets my humor. And bingo. Tynion’s characters are bland, interchangeable forgettable. I too await Alfred’s return. But the way Tyrion writes the book, I keep thinking Alfred is just in the kitchen, and he is not really dead. And who are they kidding. We all know he is coming back. Why bother “killing” him at all. Or I could be wrong.

Bats20832 - Mar 7, 2021

I was just re-reading The Outsider story again the other night in Detective Comics #356 (October 1966). Alfred always comes back. I don't know how they will do it. But if they buried Alfred and had him come back as The Outsider, we know anything is possible. Heh and that was in "canon." Well, with "everything" being "canon" now, who knows what will happen?
