I've read ur reviews on Tom Kings Batman, and while I'm not a fan of that series it's pretty clear you let that series affect your judgement on this book.

Note that I actually enjoyed first three arcs of his Batman run, and I often defend them. He later lost his way, clearly, and I don't feel like this comic is any different.
