I try to be as open minded as possible, and even, or especially when I encounter something I don't like, I try to give it a fair chance, and understand why I don't like it if I still don't like it after giving it said chance. It was the case with post I Am Bane Batman series by Tom King, which I grew to dislike only more and more with every passing issue. Enter Batman/Catwoman, which made, to say more

someone else on here said it well - it feels like Snyder slapped the word "hope" on a dialogue balloon for at least one character every other page, and crammed the book with....stuff. From that we're supposed to ignore the messy, stretched-out storyline over two similar events, and all we get at the end is a reinforcement of Morrison's "Multiversity" (which was great) by saying there are other mul more

Did Scott Snyder, the writer of the COURT OF OWLS storyline, just kill DC comics? I don't see anything good coming out of this event, man. The guy's career at DC began with a bang and ended with a whimper. You can slap the word 'hope' on each page and insert a thousand heroes but that doesn't make it a good comic book. Especially if the consequences are flat which this event has in droves... Also, more

This whole thing feels unearned and inconsequential with its over-the-top story. It's a discombobulated mess!

Superheroes for Hire - Oct 4, 2020

Your answer to Scott Snyder lies in the fact that he's going mostly independent after this. Clearly he is not writing this series based on any ownership in the ongoing narrative after this series ends. He isn't going to be the Justice League ongoing writer like after Metal. He isn't going to be a character book writer like for Batman. This was supposed to be basically the whacky conclusion to his splintered version of the DC Universe.

Superheroes for Hire - Oct 4, 2020

DC editorial convinced him to make this "count" so they could try another patch on their broken continuity. I still don't think any of this will really matter going forward. That's always just the buzz word these companies tell you to get your buy-in to huge costly events. "Read this. It changes everything." I only bought issue 1 out of morbid curiosity, and I wasn't enticed to read further.

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.
