Why did they even bother trying to cram that much story into a regular size issue?

Tolkien would have told him to edit it down a bit.

Standard fill-in stuff. Don't use Deathstroke like that.

Batman #86

By: James Tynion IV, Tony Daniel

It's a new day in Gotham City, but not the same old Batman. With Bane vanquished and one of his longtime allies gone, Batman has to start picking up the pieces and stepping up his game. Batman has a new plan for Gotham City, but he's not the only one. Deathstroke has returned as well, under a mysterious new contract that could change everything.

Bendis spends so much time trying to convince everyone that he "gets" Superman, but he just comes off as a try-hard who changes things to suit himself, not the character or his fans. The Bendis Speak is in full effect here and makes everyone sound the same at best, but makes me want to punch everyone most of the time.

First 1/10 of 2020. Both writing and art leave much to be desired.

More pages than necessary devoted to the background of a villain, that despite how much he wants to pretend is good will never be more than a C-lister. The “red cloud” is a joke.

The end shows that even if bendis is working on “developing” a character he has no idea what to do with them. The team-up is more

Yeah, if DC actually supported Doomsday Clock and planned around it, maybe promote it a bit more than this ending might've stuck. But who knows at this rate.

Detective Chimp - Dec 19, 2019

You mean in main continuity @myconius? Because I remember in main continuity he died long time ago in 60's smashed by a rock when saving the life of the Dynamic Duo and then soon returned as a very weird rogue named The Outsider. In Dark Knight Returns Alfred dies at the end. And recently he died in Injustice killed by Zaz for Superman order. And maybe there are another 1 or 2 times outside main continuity but right now I don't remember at all.

myconius - Dec 24, 2019

@Detective Chimp - yeah. in the main continuity. he sacrificed himself to save Brice & Dick, and was replaced by Aunt Harriet, then due to Alfred's popularity they just brought him back. i suspect somewhere down the road DC will be widdling Alfred being alive back into continuity, after they're done trying to capitalize on ALFRED R.I.P. ..not sure if i want to actually waste $4.99 on that.
