@Toonstrack Ultimate Spider-Man had more build-up... instead, it feels like a slightly less gross version of Spider-Man: Reign, and I think I'm older and more worn-out (ie: cynical) to deal with such a storyline

I thought this was a really cool issue. Deadshot stuff was kind of cheesy but Deadshot enough. Enjoyed the conversation with the inhabitants. Where are we going with the B plot....

Bump in score cause of the art. The art is amazing, narratively I’d put it closer to a 7.

King’s pacing for the run overall has been slow, I almost feel like this all should’ve been included in the previous issue. I can see where the Bruce and Selena are “talking at not to” perspective is coming from but I don’t think it’s as bad as others.

People giving this a 1 are those who are in the “I hate this run camp.” It’s ok not to like the book but to rate it a 1 is just petty. Your saying that it is literally the worst thing ever written, it’s not.

It’s also not a 10 because OMG shocking event happened!!!

Superheroes for Hire - Aug 26, 2019

What really outraged me was that Tom King and DC said with issue 50 that I'd completely wasted my time and money on 50 issues that were ALL part of one big story arc that was only half over. In my judgement, any payoff after 100 issues of Bat-Cat-Bane was 50 issues too late. It all boils down to Tom King saying Batman can't be happy, Bane will make his life hell, and Batman will save the day by punching people. That's 1 to 6 issues of story spread to 100.

BirdmanG07 - Aug 26, 2019

@Superheroes for Hire I was talking about it with my buddy, too. We looked back at the books and said, that could’ve been shorter, this wasn’t really needed. That dragged out a little long. Etc. I agree with you. I think he bit off a little more than he could chew. I’ve loved stuff by King but for his style I don’t know if the 100 issue route can work, regardless of the character. Not saying it’s a bad thing, just his style.

Meh. It probably says a lot about this run that when something as big as this happens, I don't care. I don't get excited at the possibilities. I don't get sad because something bad happened. I don't even give it more than the half a second it took to read. I just move on, unchanged. The dialogue in this issue is the worst when it's Bruce and Selina. They don't talk like people do.

Jokes aside, the reality is the run is fine, it's nothing special or amazing, but since Batman is so huge and ppl have put some of their personality in it, ppl tend to act irrationally.
