Many golden age stories didn't age very well. Readers' expectations have evolved and changed - we now expect more character development for our heroes, narrative complexity and deeper themes than just punching irreeemably bad guys to save the day.

It's by far one of the best looking Batman comics in a while, filled with gorgeous art, from start to finish, but that's the tragedy of it - it looks great, but offers nothing of value otherwise.

AdmiralWhiskers - Sep 11, 2019

Understood and appreciated. I suppose the variance between your score and mine (6.5) is that you chose to penalize King's writing, which I actually thought was among his more intelligible, and not reward perhaps the best artwork in any DC book this week. Seriously, the art was a 6 on a 5 scale. I'm not saying you are wrong for your stance -- perhaps I was with mine? And then there is the meta-issue of how King could totally isolate the couple from the atrocities taking place in Gotham!

Nihilist - Sep 11, 2019

Yeah, the art was fantastic. Simply breathtaking. I decided to penalize King strongly, as you assumed, because not only nothing happened in the issue, it was also super stiff and forced. That's the worst kind of filler. So, story and dialogues are 0/10 in my book, the art 10/10, so average 33%.

Tom King is a goner, so I'm presuming that this arc is toast within 12 months of his departure. That makes reviewing this little escapade as anything more than the oddity that it is...well, kinda pointless. I don't mind the "City of Bane" arc itself, but the "how we got here" part with Thomas Wayne was dreadful. But I digress, and I don't want to continue beating up on the soon-departed. >
It was an decent story for what it was...A sexy little rehab of body and mind on the French Riviera or wherever. Perhaps the most intelligible story I've read by King, and that counts for a lot with him.

My complaints are cosmetic:

1. The Cat/Bat dialogue is annoying. I know King is wed to that terminology, but he leans on it way too hard.

2. Training in spandex suits is a little more than silly when you're in some tropical paradise.

3. Practicality aside, they must have zero issues about personal privacy. Never mind that BRUCE WAYNE is vacationing with some knockout babe...and OH WAIT ITS BATMAN.

King hits the relationship notes in a stunted way, and the big pages of working out suggest he's healing. That counts for plot progress, I hope.

The art was great. I bet the artist had a blast not drawing sewage infested streets and chemical warehouses. He draws pretty women in paradise quite well.

Not much more to say about it. Except that GOTHAM IS BURNING AND ALFRED IS DEAD.

Superheroes for Hire - Sep 9, 2019

Exactly right. Bendis logic may be sound, but this issue does nothing to actually tie together the various future timelines we know of. There's nothing "definitive" here, even though Bendis has been very adamant in interviews that this miniseries was going to be the definitive word on the DC future. Its the vaguest, lamest story filled with odd vignettes instead. His timeline is "and then" and another "and then."
