The issue's heartbreaking in that it's a window into how much better this series could've been with both a re-prioritization of... priorities and tighter pacing. We needed this dive into Flashpoint bat so much like 30 issues ago, maybe showing the character motivations so we know why things are happening or something, maybe dropping bane entirely because he doesn't do anything interesting and thom more

"City of Bane" chapter eleven! The end is near as one victory leads to another defeat. As Batman reclaims his city from Bane, can he regain his sense of family? More specifically, when a man who is your father from another dimension has torn everything down around you, what will it take to build it back up? Especially when that man is currently sta...

Agree. Is sad to think about how good this book should be (because is BATMAN!) and how bad actually is for a real lack of common sense from King.

It's neat. It's an issue mostly here to catch you up on the world and central thrust of the plot. It's most successful when it's the likable main character giving it through her perspective and feels the most lore-dumpy the one time where that falls away.

This would've been better if it wasn't connected to knightmares. The Lana/Selina half is the most solid part, giving a nice respite for the run and giving King the opportunity to focus on someone who isn't a despondent baby.

It’s impressive how King manages to write a story without dialogues (there are 2), the fact that there aren’t dialogues doesn’t mean that King has done a “lazy job”, all that movements of the characters and their facial expressions are in the script of the issue.This issue symbolize the fall of Bruce Wayne and damn Tom King tells it in a very good and powerful way.

A 10 would mean this was the absolutely best comic that could have been produced. How could you possibly believe that? Or are you just trying to raise the score because you like King?

The worst issue in the run so far. We (and Batman) already realized this is a dream last issue, this issue wallows in the surreal without doing anything with it. The scenes with Selina feel like a waste of time and Constantine isn't given room to breath. Ends up feeling like a knockoff 'For the Man who has Everything'.

This could've been partly saved by some cool art (like last issue) more
