While the premise for this comic is definitely good, aside from the fact Alfred's death was one of the most disappointing moments in already utterly disappointing run of Tom King's Batman, the execution seems... cynical, calculated. It didn't feel like celebration of Alfred's life and his relations to the rest of the Bat Family. Instead, I though I'm reading carefully crafted chain of scenes desig more

Batman: Pennyworth R.I.P. #1

By: James Tynion IV, Eddy Barrows
Released: Feb 12, 2020

Alfred Pennyworth served the Wayne family for decades-even through the tragic loss of Bruce Wayne's parents. His death at the hands of Bane is the only event that could possibly compare to that fateful night in Crime Alley, and it leaves Bruce at a similar crossroads. If Alfred was the glue that held the Bat-Family together, how will Batman deal wi...

Killing alfred isn't my main gripe of his run, though I do think his quote is funny, "I put it in the script, like, of course, we'll figure this out later and he's not dead." Figure it out later? you are killing alfred and you only have 8 issues left! You would think if you kill him to bring him back, you would have a story idea when you do it!

I liked a lot of Kings run also. Dislike a lot as well. I think the biggest problem DC has right now with it's books and writers is that they are trying to write books/novel like stories and most of the writers just are not good enough to write that long or detail involved story. If King had wrote this as only a 12 issue arc it probably would have been amazing. But he tried to spread it out through his entire run and failed because of it.

If I'm being honest this wasn't my favourite issue of King's Batman, but I still liked it. The issue felt like it tied a lot together, explaining the reasons for the events in both king's run as well as things in in Brian Azzarello's original batman flashpoint book. I could go into more detail as to what I liked and what I didn't but I have a feeling others did that already, so do I agree with th more
