@ComickerPerson - I'm curious, why is it "bland and lifeless"/ bad writing? Genuinely asking and hope you respond (articulately). I'm go'n give you the benefit ot the doubt and ignore @daspidaboy and @VicSav's claims you're biased (meaning I'm not going to check your past ratings of GJ's comics). That said, HARD disagee with your review. Think this book (and the volumes before) are well written and serve as an interesting take on the Bat-Universe/Mythos. Each instalment has been a great....

Mr. White - Jun 11, 2021

...addition and showed organic growth of the characters/ world involved. The spin on these characters are also interesting. Having read a Batman who is arguably "more than human" for way too long, it's great to have a version that is closer to the "original concept". Earth-One Batman is definitely my favorite Batman (at least for now) and would love to have more, though I do fear that more may result in an implosion. Just like the Ult. Universe.

You mean the twist with Jessica and Arkham? I thought that was a great reveal and twist. I didn’t see it coming. The book kept me guessing.

Asger - Jun 13, 2021

no no no. That was great. That was the ending which was great, the epilogue I am reffering to is when Johns went nuts and just introduced Robin, Batgirl, Ragman and so on out of the blue. It was really bizarre

Yeaaah....You can definetly see that Johns had 5 volumes planned, and rushed the hell out of the third. The last few pages are so hilariously terrible, seriously. Should've just focuesed on making a cohesive third chapter, not...whatever the hell that was.

Sick Two-Face redesign, too bad it's wasted. Great Catwoman, terrible redesign. Great Croc, though. Heartwarming as fuck.

How was it wasted? I thought what they did with Jessica was brilliant and a sick twist. And the ending is teasing the future if there was ever more, he’s hoping to see people get more excited for another one, which he succeed I look forward to what he’s going to do with Joker.

Cough New-52 redesigns and retcons, Miller's Superman Year One or All-Star Batman & Robin The Boy Wonder, Bendis' Superman, King's Batman and most importantly Heroes in Crisis cough. And that's just the tip of a gigantic iceberg. Future State is pretty bad, but it won't have any lasting effects on the continuity. It's just a bunch of rushed, badly written short elseworld stories and that's about it.

How’s any of this is fan fiction? In TKJ it already gave us the wife and son angle, if TKJ point was that everything joker is a lie then what’s the point of that comic? Expect it wasn’t, the one bad day was the fact that joker wife and son died, but the twist her makes it interesting, it could add new meaning to the future of these characters. Hell they can make joker son a hero or a villain.

@The Dark Knight Detective - thank you! ... OH! absolutely. ....i may not care for Johns' writing on Batman, but his Superman, Aqualman and Green Lantern writing are great!!! he has a good sense of how to tell uplifting inspiring stories. i've not yet read his Flash. but i hear good things. ... Tom King on the other hand likes to peddle stories about depression and PTSD, as if he'd not already outed himself as a one-trick pony ages ago. he just writes every character as pathetic and sad.

Ben Reilly - Aug 14, 2021

@myconius I don't know what specifically King went through and did while he was in the CIA but whatever it is must've shook him. There's also the consideration of his own personal life. However, that doesn't mean that every one of his stories should be about depression and PTSD. I don't read comics for torture porn or for characters being miserable UNLESS it's done well and it brings a bit of hope and inspiration in the end.
