If Brandon Vietti hoped for an emotional resolution to this comic, I think he missed the mark, not mentioning learned nothing from the hate wave related to the abominable Heroes in Crisis. Instead, this short story leaves you completely indifferent not only to itself, but also to what awaits us in Future State Teen Titans.

Bruce's story is not bad. The art is nice and the writing solid so it's worth the read. But I don't see myself ever coming back to read it. I have no problems with it, but I don't care enough about it to read it ever again.

And that is my problem with Future State. These stories can be good at best, but not so good I want to read them again.

As someone who loved Tom King's run on Batman and had to be disappointed by the decision he wouldn't get to tell his full Batman story, and honestly I have been very indifferent with Tynion IV's take on him so far... I loved this. The presentation was amazing, from the way the chapters are introduced, to the great looking art and costumes.

It wasn't amazing but i enjoyed it. This is basically just the Drowned:Justice League event from last year but i enjoyed that too. I thought the dialogue was witty, Howard Porter is always good, and i have hope for some of the tie-ins. Especially Titans. I don't what else to say, this is a terrible review, all i know is that i liked it.
