"Lost Daze" continues as Batman's battle with the Splitt reaches a fever pitch, but the Dark Knight isn't getting any support from the Batcave. The normally reclusive Bruce Wayne is too busy lavishing cash all over Neo-Gotham to care that his protégé is in trouble. Does this out-of-character behavior have something to do with the strange goings-o...

Well the art was good and most of the dialogue except for Damian, that felt odd. Her backstory was eh ok. He's truly a terrible father if he just home schooled her and let her at times go around in Arkham. Joker felt out of placed though with the other villains.

There's a rumor that Tom King's run on Batman has been cut short by DC and that his last issue is #85. As much as I don't like King's run, I think cutting it 20 issues short is a bad idea and that he should be able to tell the story he wanted to tell and clearly planned on telling, especially after all these years. Why give him all the support he could need only to end his run prematurely in the home stretch?

Meh, guess Kings Batman run is a good example for what happens, if you make fanfiction canon. King doesn’t know how to write these characters at all& at this point I can only hope, that it won’t be that bad after all, when he said, that his run will change Batman‘s character for generations. Hope this is just his ego speaking.

there were things i did enjoy about this issue, mostly the art. the art was excellent.
but the big shocking reveal for the motivation behind the Arkham Knight was extremely forced and very poorly handled.

Darkseid24 you were very right to be apprehensive of them bringing the Arkham Knight into the main comics. i should have headed your warnings.

Darkseid24 - May 25, 2019

Yeah, ever since Darkseid War I‘m quite pessimistic, when new comics are announced, especially when my favorite characters are in it. These days you always have to worry that DC is messing them up. I unfortunately was right with comic AK.

agreed. i can't say i've ever loved anything Tynion has done either. Batman Eternal was bad, and Batman & Robin Eternal was even worse. both those weekly garbage titles are what got me to drop 90% to 95% of all the DC titles in my pull-list.

Darkseid24 - May 25, 2019

Me too. Batman Eternal still had some good scenes, but B&REternal was just awful. It ruined the origin of so many characters. But thanks to Batman Eternal The Dark Knight series was canceled, which was one of the few New52 titles I enjoyed. Bi weekly can work, if you have a good writer. Doug Moench could do it in the 80ies after all, but King isn’t talented enough& don’t get me started with Tynions awful Detective Comics run

myconius posted on Darkseid24's profile May 24, 2019

my thought is this . . . .Tom King really had no idea of what direction he wanted to take with his Batman run, and really had no idea what to do with it. he kept promising it would all pay off in the end, but really he was just writing checks that he couldn’t cash. ...eventually he wrote himself into so deep a hole that there was no recovering from. the last few random turns in the series were desperate acts to try to distract readers from all the questions his run asked, but never answered.

it probably won't be canon. but it'll probably be best to skip it anyway. ....UHG! just hearing Batman mentioned with Geeoof Johns name is giving me nightmares of that awful Earth One he did. how it ever got a sequel is beyond me.

Darkseid24 - May 25, 2019

Since it’s King it’s probably going to be canon, since no matter how bad he writes he can do whatever he wants. Agreed, I hope Geoff Johns stays away from all the Batman characters. It was probably because of his name, why it got a sequel.

This story continues to be a big disappointment.
Talking about timeline errors, what are the biggest problem in this issue. If Astrid currently is like 15-20 years old& villains like Harley& Joker were all already in Arkham before she was even born, it would consequently mean, that Harley is like 40-45 years& Joker 55-60 years old. Same would go for Batman. This might have worked at the end more
