To be honest, it was pretty okay. Doesn't save this arc being terrible, but at least this was okay and not annoying or feeling like filler. Art was great and writing was passable, a bit messy but not bad. I get what King was trying to do, but it was executed pretty badly.

But this arc took way too long. 8 issues is too much for so little story that feels so disjointed.

So, we're done with Knightmares. About damn time! What was the point of the entire arc, aside from being practically nothing but filler? I don't know, but comparing this week's issue with those preceeding it, I can confidently say it'd alone be enough. Yay, we got some predictable answers, and we got some, any, story progression. That's more than all previous issues combined.

@RBL I agree with you here.

Antonio - Apr 17, 2019

I think the big problem in King's run is the -meh- issues, I mean before and after 50 some stories could be shorter plus the repetitive topics, some guys may like it and others may hate it but these two elements are present in King's Batman.

This time King uses a dance to tell the readers what's happening and push us forward to the story. Something that I like is that for the first time in a long time, We can see Batman actually reasoning and evaluating his situation like a detective would do, in fact he's thet world's greatest detective, so is good for me to see a thinking Batman, more or less.

There is some interaction be more

The thing is Scarecrow is in covers of issues 70 and 75 and according to the saying of King in next issue (70) there will be another revelation. So lets see what happen.

Scarecrow is my favorite villain, but if King doesn’t do him justice I don’t want him in the story.

Question 1: Why does Batman like Sophie Tucker? Who listens to that? The song is creepy, and old, and does make you feel lonely.... sure... which Batman is BUT, who even knows that song and why is King tying that song into this dream? Again, how many people know they song? I can thank my grandma for that knowing that song but 1/10 readers will get that .... AND it doesn’t really add much to the more

I don't know how to feel about this issue. On one hand, things did indeed happen. On the other hand, most of the revelations were not revelations at all for this reader. On some mutated third hand, I'm glad that this Bat/Cat relationship seems dead as Batman admits to himself that it was never love. I never felt it was genuine and I'm happy that feeling was validated. Unless it's just a nightmare, more

So that's it, we are finally done with Knightmares.

To be honest, I expected more. yes, we got some answers to what "Knightmares" was all about and we finally got to see Thomas again so there's a story progression, but the issue still left me unsatisfied. I wanted to see Batman actually breaking through the dreams to face Scarecrow or his father but instead I got to see Bruce explaining more

I hope King just ignores Scarecrow until the end of his run. It’s for the better. King definitely doesn’t understand how the fear gas works.
