All these dream issues lead up to Bruce telling dream Selina, who keeps changing form into the various Catwoman depictions made over the years, that his greatest fear is that he does not love Selina.

The other part is Old Thomas Wayne scrapping with NAKED Bane. (For the record, fighting with your testicles and penis hanging out to flap around is really a had idea. That's how sopranos ar more

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.

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.

Awful issue. Does King ever research the characters he is writing or does he just force his story on them? I’d say the latter.
The nightmares Bruce is having, turn out to be a fear gas illusion indeed as it was mentioned some issues ago. However two things are really wrong here: Normally Batman can only overcome the fear gas by either facing his fears or enduring them until the fear gas we more

Nothing makes sense anymore. King should have quitted after 50, it was mediocre until then, but it turned so bad.
