Short review: TRASH, TRASH, TRASH. A SHAME for the great art being wasted.

Long review:

This story gets worse& worse. King really wants to make us believe, that Bruce would go shopping with Catwoman in Paris, while his city& family are in great danger? Wounded or not, I can’t see Bruce not trying to make contact with the batfamily or with the JL& waste precious time like t more

more ridiculous, random, nonsensical gibberish.

-more Bruce acting like a pathetic boob.

-more regurgitation lines from Frank Miller out of context.

Alfred - alongside Gordon & Joker - is the only essential character of every portrayal of Batman's mythos.
Killing him in such an anti-climatic fashion, without previous "character work" or diegetic-dialogical preparation, doesn't represent a brilliant estrangement, or some sort of Freudian
"unheimliche": it simply attempts to delegitimize the narrative foundations of this - Batman's - more
