Filler. More filler from King. At this point the entire 62 issue run has more filler than actual relevant content, and I wish that was a joke.
And also, 2 more public domain stories were just used as substitutes for this issue's lack of any story - one about three little pigs, and the other being the myth of Pygmalion and Galatea. Just put the series out of its misery, because there's 38 issu more

I am a big fan of these holiday specials, be it Halloween or Christmas. However this is one of the weirdest. It’s an odd choice to make a Christmas special about a world, that was hit by a nuclear bomb. You are getting 10 short stories& none of them are bad. They all take place in the nuclear winter, where most of people died. But heroes like Firestorm, Batman ( Damien), Aquaman, Supergirl etc. more

There's no denying Batman is struggling - and I'm not talking about his life as a character, I'm talking about Tom King's writing in the series. His run has become so stretched and unnecessarily long, it feels like a cable TV show these days, which would work as a 10-12 episode one, but was turned into a 23 episode giant. I have nothing against writers taking their time to tell a story, I even sai more

Very true, nothing really happens anymore in this book. I used to read Batman because I was excited for the story. Now I read it because it's Batman and I'm just curious what King will come up with next.

Justice League Dark is on its way to become a modern classic. Judging what I've seen so far, I can confidently say it's one of the best runs out there, and could definitely recommend it to any comic reader, doesn't matter if they care about the magic aspect or not. There's way more to it that sheer magic - character interactions, and character choice to begin with, is absolutely brilliant. Each he more

I think I've figured out the problem I have with King's Batman since 20-30 or so issues. He's simply unlikable, which normally wouldn't be surprising - after all, he's Batman, and Batman never was a friendly type. It's deeper than that, because while indeed Bats is hardly a social type, good writers (and that includes King in first 3 arcs of his run) manage to show his human side through his flawe more

Batman #59

Caught between Batman and his unseen enemy, the Penguin has to think on his feet to avoid being taken down by either side. If he chooses one way, he goes to jail; if he chooses the other, he ends up dead. Then again, the choice seems obvious. Is Batman ready for a new kind of avian sidekick?

I really don’t think breaking up with one of his many women would bother Bruce so much. King portrays him as the average guy, who is going mad because of it. As for Nightwing it was shocking for him, but Bruce would never go so far as he did with KGBeast. He needs his no killing rule. King portrays Bruce as a weakling. Bruce isn’t psychological damaged in that way.

Nihilist - Nov 23, 2018

You have a solid point, Batman Jones. I think I indeed may have forgotten how much Bats suffered recently, with Nightwing being shot - the entire KGBeast arc fell out of my head for the most part. I still think the man lost what makes Batman Batman, but now I have few more things to think about. I probably should also re-read past issues to understand the bigger picture, but I really don't want to do it. Like REALLY.
