This was fine. Not as emotional as some might have expected. The problem here is that without Rick, I've barely got anyone left that I want to read about. So I'm going to give this series till issue 200 to hook me again.

I'm going to sum this book up so you won't have to waste 3.99 on buying this trash. Batman gets beat up by Bane and Tom "can't write a good plot" King gives you a recap saying that everything that has happened in the last 72 issues has been BANE! wow, what a twist.

Every 2 weeks I’m trying to give King's Batman run another chance & to find some good things in it, but I think it’s just not worth it. This issue only sums up, what Bane‘s plan was the entire time& it’s a good issue for those, who just started reading Kings Batman run& for those, who forgot about some parts.
However Bane‘s entire plan is just utterly nonsense. This entire run feels more

This is basically an issue-long "previously on Batman".

Nothing happens and it ends with Thomas Wayne Batman saying he wants to help Bane's plan to Detroit Bruce Batman.

It's so decompressed that if it were a basketball, the only sound it would make is splat when it hits the floor. It would be so flat it couldn't even roll away.

Or I could be wrong.

There are two plot twisting gimmicks I'm truly sick and tired of - "it was all just a dream" and "it all is connected". Now, to be fair, the latter, if done correctly, with proper foreshadowing, details hidden in between the lines and actually logical story progression leading to all the reveals, can be great. One issue stating "it was all a part of the plan since the very beginning" is not a vali more

This issue is supposed to explain Bane's plan, right? It doesn't. It just tells the reader what he did up to the wedding. Which is new information, technically, but all it does is tie events together by just saying "Bane Dun Did It". This plan makes sense if Bane is omniscient. There's understanding your enemy and there's... this. It's too absurd. This is the same trap Heroes in Crisis fell into. more
