King fans after this issue: The book was kind of rushed and sloppy in execution; not a great penultimate issue either. It also has some plot-holes and raises more questions than before.

Also King fans after this issue: 10/10 rating

I don't care anymore. This book is an embarrassment to the comic industry. I feel bad for anyone who enjoys this book.

I think it's nothing more than just an oversight. One small panel, that has really no relevance to the story. Still, it's worth pointing out. Shouldn't the editor or someone catch things like that? And yes, Forever Evil was awesome.

Tom King has officially turned bane into the biggest fool in Batman's rogues gallery, while simultaneously leeched all of the tension out of this worthless event.

I liked the last one better.

This one was just a recap of Reign of the Supermen, but with Lois instead. No world-building, no interesting character interactions, just pages of Lois being very angry and killing people.

A bearable Tom King Batman comic. It's not good, not terrible, but readable.

I like the art.

The one thing that prevents it from being shit is the fact that it is just a compilation of Batman doing wacky silver age stuff like fighting dragons and aliens, riding horses, and competing in boxing matches for charity.

Very stale, but it accomplishes its function.
