Another bewildering installment of Tom King's Babyman.

Batman #71

By: Tom King, Mikel Janin
Released: May 15, 2019

"The Fall and the Fallen" continues! Will it be father and son working together, or tearing each other apart? When it comes to the Waynes, expect a little of both. In the quest to get Bruce Wayne to hang up the cape and cowl, Thomas Wayne is going to have to use a little tough love. Only, not all the muscle behind it will be his own.

The purpose of a villain in a superhero story is to challenge the hero, make them embrace their best self, grow and learn. None of that can happen when a random sleection of baddies is being taken down one by one by a hero so overpowered he puts Arya Stark to shame.

Haha I would be totally fine with Bane killing Thomas, since I hate that guy. I rather hope we don’t get some dramatic reunion between son& father. Overall it makes no sense to me, that Thomas is even there. There is zero explanation.

myconius - May 14, 2019

exactly! we've been wondering how Thomas is there or why he'd be helping Bane against his own son. King probably just threw that in there as a mystery box, and now has no idea what to do with it. the whole scenario is just dumb beyond dumb.

Sales are different though. While it’s one of their top sellers, it’s still around 20K lower than the previous writer. So, that’s a real issue. Dido doesn’t seem to have much business sense though and refuses to make corrections to his failed ideas.

Darkseid24 - Mar 30, 2019

I can’t imagine Kings stories selling lower than Snyder’s Gordon Batman story. That one was awful. However Pre52 stories were of better quality. It already became bad, when FC happened, but it turned really bad when New52 started. Even so some stories were ok.

I get it. Bruce feels bad about himself. We know that. Telling us the same point over and over again, doesn't make the story more intersting. And the twist ending really doesn't have the impact that King probably meant it to have.

The whole issue until the last couple of panels is him trying to escape from Mr. Pyg, a villain that I truly hate, not love to hate, but just hate.
>In his attempts - Bats is slung upside down in a slaughter house like a slab of beef - Bats cuts himself to the bone with a hidden batarang to escape. He fights Pyg and only really does damage when he throws Pyg's knife at him. He notes that he really only hurt Pyg by using Pyg's weapon. Pyg easily catches the thrown batarang.

There's almost no dialogue. It's all Bats in text boxes talking in present tense.

While Bruce wonders how he got into his current troubles (again King is all tell, not show) he thinks the the tale of Pygmalion - a sculptor who fell in love with his own creation, but when that creation gained life, she rejected him.

Then when Pyg is unmasked, it's Damian reciting a line from the three pigs - hair of chinny, chin chin.

IT WAS ALL A DREAM. PSYCH. More like Yawn. The art is incredibly bloody. So while well-done, I found it off-putting. But that's me. If you like a comic literally dripping in blood in every panel and full of self-mutilation and horrific violence, then this is the book for you. Psycho.

I hate dream language. No doubt things like only using the enemy's weapon works and falling too much in love with your own creation are supposed to tell us about Bruce's mental health. But that's all King has been doing - driving home the same point over and over again.

It's boring.

I am so tired of psycho Batman. I miss the days when he was smart, self-aware and a true force for good. Now it's all just "you make things worse" and "you're a driven psycho that damages everything you touch" and blood, blood, blood, bodies, bodies and more bodies.

Enough. But that's me. I am a bit of delicate flower.
