It's time for the big showdown. Batman is calling Bane out. But is the Dark Knight Detective ready to take on the foe who broke him worse than any other that came before? And what else stands in Batman's way, to put an obstacle between him and his enemy? Tread lightly, Batman, because not only do the lives of your son and trusted friends hang in th...

oh for pete's sake!!!
the painfully obvious back-peddaling that this issue starts with
just proves that Tom King had NO plan of what the heck he's doing.

King never bothered to read Flashpoint to learn that Thomas Wayne uses his guns
to make up for the fact that he lacks the years of training that Bruce had.
Tim Drake's lack of reflex skills was just LAUGHABLE!!! more

The worst part of the book is that it got published. It feels rushed, the twist here is just incomprehensibly stupid and based on tons and tons of pure luck. But the worst part of it is that it clashes with the previous 20 or so issues.
It's hard to decide whether this or Heroes In Crisis is Tom King's lowest point.
What started as an interesting story ended up being filler after fille more

At this point, I cannot say Tom King is a talented writer. I never read Sheriff of Babylon, and I only read through issue 6 of Vision (I had no background with the character). But Omega Men was the only thing I've read of his that had a coherent story. Batman has been all over the place, but has trended to garbage. And Mister Miracle was garbage disguised as philosophy. There is no plot, no resolution, no continuity, no morality, no purpose. Just B.S. philosophy, a suicide, and an open ending.

Miracle Man is the most over-praised, over-hyped book in the last forty years.

Putting King on this book has been a blunder of epic proportions. It is clear that the man does not know what he's doing.

The problem was leaving him on this book. DC should have pulled him from the book 50 issues ago and let someone else pick up all the dangling plot lines. It's not like King is doing well with tying any of it together.

myconius - Oct 16, 2019

i'd go as far to say that he should have never been put on as high profile a book as Batman. he just never bother to do any real research into the characters nor did he set up some sort of plan what to to with this run. it's felt like he's been just making this SH%$ up as he goes, and digging himself a deeper and deeper hole. he's still never bother to answer many of the questions that were brought up early on. with the amount of filler in this run, it's obvious he has no answers. he's a hack.

I'll be damned, I don't know what worse in this piece of filth of a comic - writing or art. It's bad on every considerable level, from the storytelling perspective, through dialogues, to sketches and inks. It's trash. Just trash.

Back when King started his Batman run, he created I Am Suicide arc - and as I said many times before, I like it, a lot in fact. The final plot twist, showing h more

Nihilist - excellent points made on all topics!

Darkseid24 - Oct 22, 2019

I like majority of Black Label titles, but apart from the cursing nothing is in it, that justifies Black Label. Doug Moench wrote good stories& he wrote Detective Comics& Batman both for a while. So I think writers can, if they actually are talented enough.

I've always loved JR Jr and his art. Especially when he was on ASM. But now it just doesn't seem right. It seems like he is not focusing as much in this, as he did in ASM. A New Ways to Die, ASM #600 all had better art than this. Maybe his style just doesn't fit Batman as well as it does on Spidey.

As for the rest of the issue. It was bad. Just no. All this being Bruce's big plan that h more

"No plan until you realize you have to give DC something so you make up some crap that makes it seem like it was all part of the plan" seems like the routine King went with this.

DC Stuff - Oct 16, 2019

remember, this is how Heroes in Crisis ended as well...the "Puddlers" were a clue at first and ended up being something Wally once heard Barry say and instead of clues and a solid look at the Sanctuary and it's AI we got time travel nonsense and Lagoon Boy no longer dying in a totally different way than we saw. Not to mention there was a Green Lantern dead which never was addressed. The only thing that Tom King plans are ways to fool people using social media!

I've been very supportive of Tom King which was a mistake. I dropped Heroes In Crisis but kept buying his Batman. Supporting him. This is the issue where it's obvious that the writer doesn't care, the editor doesn't care, the artist doesn't care.
Nobody cares but they still ask for our money. Huge plot holes covered with cringy excuses and dialogue.
I get it that Tom Kin more

King does it again! Just like in Heroes in Crisis where he wrote himself into a corner, he tries to get out by overexplaining everything that was supposed to be part of his long Batman run from the beginning, but he seemed to never show at all! Seriously, if you believed his lies after he lied about the wedding, then you are just not all that with it! This run has been full little to no setup a more

Not only am I never reading another Tom King series, but I never want to read another series edited by Jamie Rich. That's the editor King dumped onto Batman after King got Mark Doyle fired for the proposal art.

DC Stuff - Oct 16, 2019

Yep! Doyle acted like an editor and King cried and got his Yes Man Jamie Rich put in and was allowed to not tell a story for years
