Man, what can we really say about this book? Thomas promises to his dead parents that he will spend the rest of his life warring against anything that might cause Bruce pain. Except for him apparently. He can completely fuck Bruce's life up and that's all okay. Bruce also doesn't see what Thomas sees in the Joker, whatever the fuck that is, we don't know because it's also not explained. Thoma more

somewhere in Tom King's feeble mind, this all seemed so "epic" and brilliant. ...he's probably bruising his palms by patting himself on the back too hard, as we speak.

Not gonna lie, whatever this was, good isn't it.

Using the word "earlier" for every panel makes it feel incredibly messy, and as we're talking about a character from an entirely different Earth it muddles it even further. I'd say there would have to be a better way to indicate where and when things happened but simply "earlier" is not it.

I don't know what linear story telling did to King as a child, but it must be terrible. Because King just refuses to tell a story in linear order.

Apparently Thomas Wayne's whole motivation is that he fell in love with the Selina Kyle of his world and he wants Bruce to, in some sort of weird psycho-sexual transference thing, seal the deal.

Above sentence should read "vibe" not vice.

Detective Chimp - Dec 6, 2019

The story of #84 is crystal clear. Thomas gets laid with flashpoint Selina giving him a new hope and sense for his life after the death of his son and his jokerized wife (killed by himself). He even stop killing the rogues but the Selina dies fighting crime on his side and the darkness backs to the hearth of Thomas and when he realize Bruce is repeating his own story he decides to step and "save" his boy. That's the story and I think is easy to understand. Now when comes to like or dislike this issue #84 is up to you. I liked it but I understand if others don't. I think King's Run overall is terrible but this issue was very interesting for me.

it's not so much that Nora was some deep fleshed out character, but what she represented. she was the one good thing Victor had to lokk forward to. ...and now we see that this whole time that he was just pining over some mean and cruel bitch.

myconius - Nov 28, 2019

but as i've been saying, this bi-weekly release everything gets rushed. under developed. i just wasn't sold on Nora being corrupted by the formula that Lex gave Victor. ...that was hid wife. Victor would have known something was up MUCH sooner. had Tomasi been given more time to plot out his story, he could have went back and wrote in some hints and clues as to what might have come. but no. we just get this.

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.

I guess we're just supposed to assume that Batman telling Freeze that accepting a deal from Lex Luthor was bad and Freeze should have expected this as explaining why Nora has the sudden character change. One line of dialog just doesn't cut it though as an explanation. As I've said before, Freeze is a villain with a shelf life. His always going on about Nora gets old, so the writer tried to mix things up. I feel this shows Freeze as a recurring character is at an end. Or I could be wrong.

it was very well written. opening very emotionally powerful.
the art was also terrific.

point's lost for Paul's nagging reminder of 'Batman#77'.
points also lost on this issue for being slow at parts.
A LOT OF PARTS! not enough action, LOTS of talking.
also wasn't a fan of the constant references to Year of the Villa more

Detective Comics #1014

By: Peter J. Tomasi, Doug Mahnke
Released: Oct 23, 2019

Nora Fries has been the apple of Mr. Freeze's eye for a long time. For years he has toiled and suffered to try and cure her of her ailments, and bring back the life they had together. He has finally done it, but will Nora Fries be the same person she was when she was frozen? Or is there something broken that can't be fixed?

This issue should have been two issues and go in more detail about Noras heel turn because that is completely forced and out of nowhere. Highly recommend someone to just skip this issue! The moments with Nora and Victor should make me feel something but none of them do.

Aside from the fact I generally love to write, and take pleasure from doing it, I regularly review comics because it's a great way to interact with other fans of the medium, exchange opinions, and learn from them. We recently had a great discussion with myconius and Darkseid24 regarding bi-weekly comic releases, and how this tight schedule hurts DC's flagship series. We all know (or should) how di more

Nah Freeze had some good stories Pre52.

thank you for the nod, Nihilist. ...hopefully someone at DC decides to do the right thing, and stop milking us fans for extra money each month and go back to putting the necessary time and effort into telling great stories again. ...this nickle and diming of the customers has no real longevity.

This is how King has Batman characters win. They get beat on and beat on, and once the attackers get all tuckered out from pummeling the victim, the victim then turns around, all bloody and beaten, and hits them once and they drop like a sack of potatoes.

Apparently, in King's world, there's not such thing as broken noses, concussions, internal bleeding , damaged backs, knees and hands. more

It's time for the big showdown. Batman is calling Bane out. But is the Dark Knight Detective ready to take on the foe who broke him worse than any other that came before? And what else stands in Batman's way, to put an obstacle between him and his enemy? Tread lightly, Batman, because not only do the lives of your son and trusted friends hang in th...

Just be sure to give me credit. It’s hard to think up original snarks. I am very proud of that one.
