No. Just no.

I had hoped that King's successor would build on the good stuff that King did. And to be fair, for all my criticisms of King, I must acknowledge he did some good things - especially his relationship with Catwoman.

But that's where this issue really falls apart. It turns out that Catwoman, Riddler and Penguin were part of some cabal with a secret agenda. (Apparent more

King didn’t do any good stuff so what would he have to build on?

Quinn - Feb 6, 2020

Like I said, I liked that fact that he was serious about the Batman/Catwoman romance. As to whether that was really good, I'll say it was mixed, but understand if others didn't like it. But all in all, it was something new and there was enough there that I liked that I'll say it was good. Again, good not great. Or I could be wrong.

I feel like I should be more excited about this issue than I actually am. Maybe it's the comic, or maybe I just have a bad day, but either way I couldn't really get into it, get invested in the story and appreciate the groundwork Tynion is laying down for events to come and mysteries to unravel. It's all fine, nothing's missing, nothing's lacking, but while it is an entertaining read, I don't thin more

It's good to read a Batman comic which was written with a plan in mind, for once. Sure, the plot so far rings the familiar bell of Arkham Origins game, but I'm definitely interested in what's going to happen next, and what kind of role will Penguin, Riddler and Bullock all play.

Again, a five. I liked the art and I liked the fact that the colors were bright. King's Batman used muted colors, I guess to symbolize depression of the mind.

The plot is that the five assasins are locked up in Bruce's supermax holding cells he built for the city. But the cells don't work and they escape. Jinx or Minx or Lynx or whatever her name is, gets hit by a semi-truck so bad that more

A good Batman comic? Could it be?! Well, considering it's Tynion who took over the series, I expected nothing less, but still, I was afraid Tom King's awfulness preceeding this new run could affect it more, dragging it down. That didn't happen for the most part, naturally not including Alfred's death, which up to this point, has been just pointless, it was merely shock for the sake of shock.

I don't think Selina's identity as Catwoman is as widely known among Gothamites as it is among villains and heroes (and Gordon probably, but he's infected now), but I may be wrong.

Quinn - Jan 8, 2020

If Selina has a police record, which is a matter of public record and available to Page Six gossip columnist-types, the world knows. Bruce is big news and who is acting as his wife-like hostess at a public event will be investigated by the media as a matter of course. That’s what bugs me about the Bruce-Selina romance. A problem that writers can’t deal with in a “realistic” manner if you can say that about a story featuring a man dressed as a bat.

What to say, what to say? The art is good. Tynion definately is taking the book in a new direction, but is it really a new direction? We see Bruce at Bats being ever so dedicated to fighting crime that he neglects his guests at a Wayne Enterprise event. That's not new.

We see him fighting an unnamed evil organization with a secret goal. That's not new. We see Selina acting at "Mrs." Way more

Interesting. Between Dick Grayson, Jim Gordon and now Luke, it seems that DC wants anyone BUT Bruce to be Batman.

myconius - Jan 8, 2020

yeah. pretty much. i guess they think it creates a sense of intrigue. as if more people will tune in to see who the new Batman is, and what he'll do. Knightfall and Az-Bats already happened years ago. the only reason Dick Grayson's tenure as Batman worked so well was because of the given history and Legacy. at this point the rehash of re-inventing the wheel is getting MAD old!

Deathstroke was beaten pretty fast by Batman & while I don’t really think Deathstroke to be an interesting villain, he shouldn’t be beaten so easily.

The fight between Catwoman and Raina Creel turns personal, as the Creel goons descend on the pawn shop. Their target? Catwoman's right-hand man, Carlos. If your opponent has better weapons than you, it makes sense to take out the supplier. Especially when you have a new enforcer coming into town to put the hammer down.

All well said. Question - why is Selina staying in this city/country? Why not take Maggie out? Why was Maggie there? What is Selina's long-term goal? Does she want to take Creek out? Does she regret fighting Creel? We should have a sense of all this by issue 18. We don't. Or I could be wrong, but keep up the good work.

Yeah, but then again, he was writing Batman's series with "Batman" in the name, so sales had to be high. The name alone makes the book more popular than Detective Comics.

i don't think King deserves any of the credit for Batman selling well. it was a brand new #1 with a huge hype driven campaign. it was going to sell well if a monkey was writing it. i actually think DC would have been much better off had they actually HAD a monkey writing Batman instead of King. all he did was damage the brand and made readers drop the title like a bad habit.

You mean in main continuity @myconius? Because I remember in main continuity he died long time ago in 60's smashed by a rock when saving the life of the Dynamic Duo and then soon returned as a very weird rogue named The Outsider. In Dark Knight Returns Alfred dies at the end. And recently he died in Injustice killed by Zaz for Superman order. And maybe there are another 1 or 2 times outside main continuity but right now I don't remember at all.

myconius - Dec 24, 2019

@Detective Chimp - yeah. in the main continuity. he sacrificed himself to save Brice & Dick, and was replaced by Aunt Harriet, then due to Alfred's popularity they just brought him back. i suspect somewhere down the road DC will be widdling Alfred being alive back into continuity, after they're done trying to capitalize on ALFRED R.I.P. ..not sure if i want to actually waste $4.99 on that.

Huh.

I really don't have anything other to say here. City of Bane that has no Bane in it.

Broken Bruce who wasn't really broken.

Alfred who is dead, but nobody cares and buys it.

Summary so bad and full of lies, but is still better and has more story than this issue.

Art so good it almost makes you miss the wanna-be-deep-done-bad-writing. >
This doesn't make feel anything. Alfred's death means nothing to me right now. Huh. I guess that is an accomplishment.

What will happen next? Who even cares at this point. more

It's chapter nine of "City of Bane," and it's time for a reckoning in Gotham City! Thomas Wayne has joined forces with Bane, and that alliance threatens to throw a monkey wrench into Batman's plans. And as Bane's evil army begins to crumble, the Caped Crusader must face the real force behind it all. As the end of this epic tale grows near, Batman a...

And Bane... And even Thomas Wayne, if he is killed by Gotham Girl or if returns to his flashpoint dimension or even if remains in this reality as a Batman rogue he is wasted anyway for the terrible writing of King. Such a fascinating character from Flashpoint so poorly played.

I hope Thomas gets killed, but King sure turned him into an even sicker character.

Wow. Just wow. This is the more humanized Batman? Last issue this guy got shot in the gut and this issue he's completely fine. In this run he's been shot, had his throat slit, and broken his back multiple times to just pretty much walk each off as if nothing happened. This isn't a humanized Batman, this is a terminator Batman who is emotionally stunted. Don't worry though because Tim magical more

He was taken against his will out of Gotham and Bane and Co. made it a fortress in his absence.

i just don't buy into Bane and his goons running Batman out of Gotham. it just makes Batman look like a pathetic loser. what makes it even worse is how Bane is after all of this, Bane easily getting taken out like a chump. the whole entire thing makes Bruce look all the more pathetic for letting Alfred get killed.

Mikel Janin's art gets drowned by bad plotting. Alfred's death has zero emotional impact because it happened two months ago and even before it happens we know it won't stick because of Doomsday Clock and the upcoming Crisis. Alfred deserves better. Murdering characters is Tom Kings "thing". But as with every storytelling tool it must be used sparingly or else it ends up being a joke. How many char more

He is not actually a good writer. He's written maybe 2 or 3 good short stories.

Rascal4Hire - Nov 28, 2019

I think he's a good writer. I've enjoyed his stories in the past and Batman till around #30 or something like that. After that it all went downhill.
