This was pretty good. It's like on the level of Constantine: The Hellblazer from Tynion IV. The art is pretty good. The voice of Constantine is pretty good... It's all pretty good. I'm sufficiently whelmed. This is shaping up to be a book that I don't remember in a few years.

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

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.

DC Stuff - yeah, "figure it out later" that was the mantra to his ENTIRE run!! only he NEVER figured any of it out. the guy is clueless.
