I hope we won’t say in a few months ,,King was better after all“. I just want a well written story& characters in character.

This issue is nothing special, but it’s not bad either. It’s the conclusion to the last one.
It’s always nice to see Batman doing some detective work, since many writers ignore this these days& thankfully the villain or rather Batman‘s opponents became a little more interesting than last issue.

As an ending of an arc it fails to stick the landing, but no one arc of "ric" ever managed to really take off, so this just botching the end is already a vast improvement. As a single issue the fact it fails to commit to the single change most fans have been asking for since Batman #55 is its biggest drawback.

I liked the visit through Dick's past.

Travis Moore's art was great when he was in the issue.

The Bad:
Undid the last couple issues of progress too quickly for my liking.

Gave me hope for Dick and then snatched it away.

This issue was rushed. I don’t know why, but writers let Dick win way too easily & way too fast. He overcame the Talons manipulation as if it was nothing. Same happened with Scarecrow, with Joker‘s daugther& now with the Talons as well. If you write the villains too weak, how much is the victory of the hero worth? Nothing.

It was ok, but not great. At least Tynion is writing dialogue, that actually is readable. However I hate, that Catwoman is still a part of the story. She is just pointless.

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

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!

the batman at the end of this story is not a depressed maniac. omega can say he's the real batman, but for me at least after reading this story, the batman that defeats him is the true batman that snyder is pushing for, I like to not take dialogue too directly or seriously, so when omega said no I'm the real bruce wayne, i just thought that was a clever twist. It's similar to what the movie Logan and Superman 3 did by literally having a clone of the character fight the main character.
