Good issue, but some ideas / characterizations seem weird like why such a bad hairstyle for WW or I don’t really buy Ivy helping them. Or what’s the point of big baby GL? And what I also didn’t like is the treatment of Darkseid once again, whom we see beheaded just to make the newest villain Omega ( who might be one of the batfamily- hopefully Jason not Damien) look cool.

It looks promising. I liked it; this Bruce Wayne seems much more caring and light-hearted than the usual Bruce Wayne throughout decades and he is starting to grow on me, but there are some things that I didn't understand like what was the purpose of those baby GLs? they've felt out of the place.

I guess telling two halves of a story at once is a good way to engineer a false sense of forward momentum. I wish King would just stop with the gimmicks.

I think even King is starting to realize that people are catching on to his writing tropes, and since they're not ones that you can easily diversify (There's only so many ways you can tell a "ch more

OH MY GOD.

This is just a rehash of the Knightfall story arc from the early 1990s.

Bane breaks out the Arkham crew. Batman is stressed out, pushes allies away. Hits Robin the same way Hank Pym hit Wasp back in the early 1980s. (The action, while bad, is not a symptom of being a wife beater, but rather psychological stress).

The worse thing than telling one story with no substance is telling two at the same time. King's writing reminds me of drunk or drugged people mumbling incoherently, probably believing what they say (or try to, at least) makes some, any sense, but it doesn't to anyone who's not as wasted as they are.

We've got an antire arc worth of hallucinations and delirious nightmares coming true. A more
