I don’t like the final issue as much as others do, because it doesn’t give the Watchmen characters enough respect. They also don’t really have a purpose in this story. Plus Doomsday Clock remains to be irrelevant for the DC universe. Overall Johns disappointed at the end.

MAJOR SPOILER!!

No one actually promised a reboot or crisis coming out of Doomsday Clock. From the beginning, Johns a confrontation between the philosophies of Superman and Dr. Manhattan instead of a brawl between Justice League and Watchmen. You can judge how well it performed to that promise.

Doomsday Clock did back then when it was announced& the Button teased that change.

I really don't understand how people can like this. Well, maybe on one level, which is as fan fiction.

I'm not so precious as to say that Moore's wishes should be respected and Watchmen characters should never be seen again....mind you Before Watchmen was a pain (despite beautiful Darwyn Cooke material).

But this...I won't get into the entire series and just mention a couple more

let's see how long it takes for Gotham Girl to disappear from DC Comics, never to be mentioned again.

Detective Chimp - Dec 19, 2019

Amen @myconius . Gotham Girl is just an homage to Tom King´s daughter "Claire". Yes, he just made his daughter a bad copy of Supergirl. Maybe a cameo the day of her birthday would be ok but made his daughter a leading charachter in Batman comic just because he can and want to is very disrespectful and unprofessional.

I secretly expected Tom King would at least provide something special for the final issue. I'll agree with the majority of reviewers that this was not good. It was not even mediocre. It was bad. The art is really good though. Tom King has some great collaborators who provide the soul of the book and give each issue a lot of value.

What I disliked............

1. King just did the minimum to finish the story up. This issue feels like he just threw it together and didn't care about giving the fans a real story. I liked a lot of Kings run and disliked a lot also. However with all of what I liked I felt hopeful and was looking for this to be an epic ending. Instead it was more the dying embers to the fire.

No, Tom King, throwing incoherent shit, glueing it up with no context and pretending it has a message is not writing. 85 issues, and everything you've set up at the beginning, every promising thing, went to complete disrepair, and in some cases was just abandoned.

You mean in main continuity @myconius? Because I remember in main continuity he died long time ago in 60's smashed by a rock when saving the life of the Dynamic Duo and then soon returned as a very weird rogue named The Outsider. In Dark Knight Returns Alfred dies at the end. And recently he died in Injustice killed by Zaz for Superman order. And maybe there are another 1 or 2 times outside main continuity but right now I don't remember at all.

myconius - Dec 24, 2019

@Detective Chimp - yeah. in the main continuity. he sacrificed himself to save Brice & Dick, and was replaced by Aunt Harriet, then due to Alfred's popularity they just brought him back. i suspect somewhere down the road DC will be widdling Alfred being alive back into continuity, after they're done trying to capitalize on ALFRED R.I.P. ..not sure if i want to actually waste $4.99 on that.

I don't know what linear story telling did to King as a child, but it must be terrible. Because King just refuses to tell a story in linear order.

Apparently Thomas Wayne's whole motivation is that he fell in love with the Selina Kyle of his world and he wants Bruce to, in some sort of weird psycho-sexual transference thing, seal the deal.

What happened with Psycho Pirate? And yeah, Skeets too. So much was left behind and people will complain and say “but he didn’t get to do the full run he wanted”.

King and DC are just wasting our time. - AGREED!!! i strongly felt this since Tom King's very first issue. King should have never been given Batman.

I not very enthusiastic about Tynion but right now we just need King to end his terrible run. He said #84 will be full of anger and #85 will make us cry a lot so I expecting the worst in that last issue.

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
Tom King has Batman crying YET again!
maybe Alfred wouldn't have died if Bruce didn't leave him in danger in the first place. this really makes Bruce look like a complete failure. how is it that Alfred was even a prisoner of Bane's in the first place?

Tom King is just NOT a good writer.
he has no idea how to create, innovate or inspire.
all he knows more

I remember, it was THE PHOENIX AND THE TURTLE, from Shakespeare if I remember well.

@myconius this beach scene was one of the dumbest in Comic Book history. I hate Bruce for relaxing& making weird fitness poses with Selina while Alfred was brutally murdered. He doesnt get any sympathy from me. I thankfully can borrow Comics from a friend. I only buy the ones I really like, but since they are all trash lately DC saves me a lot of money.

I don't care about any of this. I'm glad now we have confirmation that Bruce was suicidal at his young age and he did make the vow to be Batman at that same young age. That was an argument between friends that has now been resolved... I mean, I get what King is going for here, but we as readers have known Alfred was dead and have processed that for months now. The wound, if it existed at all, is n more

True, true.

Darkseid24 - Nov 25, 2019

I wouldnt have a problem with a darker& more depressed version of Gotham, but I have a problem with the countless plotholes& with the awful dialogue in Kings run. It’s just so stupid to read. King also cant deal with criticism, he only wants praises & doesnt even care what fans don’t like about his run.
