Putting King on this book has been a blunder of epic proportions. It is clear that the man does not know what he's doing.

Batman #81

By: Tom King, John Romita Jr
Released: Oct 16, 2019

It's time for the big showdown. Batman is calling Bane out. But is the Dark Knight Detective ready to take on the foe who broke him worse than any other that came before? And what else stands in Batman's way, to put an obstacle between him and his enemy? Tread lightly, Batman, because not only do the lives of your son and trusted friends hang in th...

The problem was leaving him on this book. DC should have pulled him from the book 50 issues ago and let someone else pick up all the dangling plot lines. It's not like King is doing well with tying any of it together.

myconius - Oct 16, 2019

i'd go as far to say that he should have never been put on as high profile a book as Batman. he just never bother to do any real research into the characters nor did he set up some sort of plan what to to with this run. it's felt like he's been just making this SH%$ up as he goes, and digging himself a deeper and deeper hole. he's still never bother to answer many of the questions that were brought up early on. with the amount of filler in this run, it's obvious he has no answers. he's a hack.

It's impressive how many parallel points of view Tom King manages to squeeze in just one issue, and make them all so bland and pointless at the same time. I'd love to see the story from Kite Man and Scarecrow's angle, I'd love to see more Gotham Girl, and Robins as well, since they were criminally underused in this run. But at the same time, I can't stop thinking, there's something big missing in more

City of Bane continues to introduce us to the New Gotham City. King's still writing so there the same qualities and problems than the last 75 issue. I really enjoyed the issue, the stakes keep getting higher. The Batman chasing vilain was cool and it is nice to see Kite Man again. Hoping to see more of him in the next issue.

Tom King also does not understand nor does he respect any of the characters within the DCU.

him being one of the main writers is a major reason why DC Comics is in so much trouble right now..

AH! if Snake was in charge, they'd be number 1 in the industry!!! ..no. i definitely don't think DC will be closing up shop any time soon. but this tightening of the belt does have me worried. laying off Mark Chiarello was a major loss. and i really feel that taking away Swamp Thing, Hellblazer and Animal Man away from Vertigo with the new52 was a huge mistake. i just hope they don't end print and phase into digital. as much as i may complain about clutter, i love my books and comics.
