I think Coates has successfully reeled me back in. As long as he continues to have something to say, I'm on board. This can turn into a bad book if Coates's writing feels uninspired, so it's crucial that he maintains this going forward.

Yeah, I think it's a bit dumb to be upset about Alfred being replaced, at least as it relates to this specific issue. This just so happens to be the first comic published with Lucius in his position. And it's not even the focus of the book. The comic itself is good. It's not Tom Taylor's best work and he's certainly trying to hit that emotional core that he hit so well with things like Friendly Ne more

Why did I read this? I felt like wasting my time and sanity, that's why. Ugh, this was an insane slog filled with social commentary and all the bullshit that entails.

This was solid. I liked all the character interactions. I just wish things were moving at a quicker pace, and we weren't just teased for future stories. That ending, though, that's a big deal. Although, I think the show handled the reveal much better, but these comics put the characters in very different circumstances, so it had to go down slightly differently.

This was pretty good. This series feels a bit like a throwback to a more traditional, classic comic book style. And I can see why some people aren't into it, but I don't know, I get this sense of nostalgia from these sorts of books, even though they aren't rehashing things, but rather making something new.

I like that we got a issue to ruminate on the team and the status quo. Sometimes, especially with team books, we don't ever get that and it begins to become a drag for this reader. I just wish this book wasn't forced to tie into Year of the Villain. I feel like that is it's biggest problem. It can't just tell its own story.

I liked this one, although I thought it was a bit slow. I don't really care for the Knightfall stuff. Bane can't catch a break lately, it seems. The Azrael Batsuit looks slightly less dumb than it did in the 90s, so that's something. I'm on the edge of not caring, but there's enough here that I remain slightly invested.

This was a good issue, but perhaps slower than the other two so far. Batman's being a detective and that's cool. The action looked a bit off this time around. It mostly all connected, but there were a few instances where the art didn't translate the action. And since pages are sacrificed for action in this series, they have to be astounding. It reminds me, in a lot of ways, of Warren Ellis's Moon more

I did not expect something of this quality from Dan Abnett. I know, I know, he did great things with Marvel Cosmic over a decade ago, but his recent stints on Aquaman and Justice League Odyssey have made me think less of his work.

I enjoyed this more than I thought I would, mostly because I don't know the writer and I fear the unknown. But this was fun and frantic, and Sentry was badass.
