My exact problem with Snyder's writing. His Batman stories have no subtlety.

No subtlety? Man Snyder's Batman run was the best run of this character.

I was originally not going to read this, but then comics pretty much stopped completely, so I figured why not? I was not a fan of the show growing up, simply because I didn't watch it. I've tried getting into it here and there, but it's truly not a bingeable show, in my opinion, so my speed on that front is glacial. It's just not really my thing. And this comic isn't my thing either. It's fine. Ho more

Well, the show doesn't have to be created during a time where "bingeable" is a thing. If it's a show I enjoy, I can binge it regardless. My point is that I wasn't enjoying the show enough to commit to watching multiple episodes at once, therefore making my experience with Batman TAS limited.

YourGreenMuse - Apr 1, 2020

And the majority of the review is directed at the comic, where my biggest complaints are the flat art and the completely passable dialogue, which I nicely attributed, at least in part, to the format of the comic. If I were less nice today, this would have faired worse.

Thank god this bullshit is over. Why anyone would want a Justice League book where the heroes almost never win is beyond me. DC needs to do some housecleaning and Snyder, despite a few good stories, needs to go along with King and Bendis. Get writers back in who know how to tell complete stories and remember what the point of having heroes is. This entire run was trash.

Just like everything Snyder writes, this run ends with nothing. For a worthless, meaningless story, it lasts too long. Perpetua is a boring, annoying, outdated villain and that makes the JL even dumber. I may be wrong but is Snyder whining about editorial decisions in the story? That's pretty unprofessional and narrow-minded I think since the story is JUST BAD.

Detective Chimp - Dec 19, 2019

You mean in main continuity @myconius? Because I remember in main continuity he died long time ago in 60's smashed by a rock when saving the life of the Dynamic Duo and then soon returned as a very weird rogue named The Outsider. In Dark Knight Returns Alfred dies at the end. And recently he died in Injustice killed by Zaz for Superman order. And maybe there are another 1 or 2 times outside main continuity but right now I don't remember at all.

myconius - Dec 24, 2019

@Detective Chimp - yeah. in the main continuity. he sacrificed himself to save Brice & Dick, and was replaced by Aunt Harriet, then due to Alfred's popularity they just brought him back. i suspect somewhere down the road DC will be widdling Alfred being alive back into continuity, after they're done trying to capitalize on ALFRED R.I.P. ..not sure if i want to actually waste $4.99 on that.

A good writer? Some of his stories are mediocre at best, but his Mister Miracle already was awful, if you actually know& love the New Gods. Same goes for his Batman run. And he doesnt have any reason to be pissed at DC when he is allowed to write every crap he comes up with. That makes no sense.

I don't know why Magnett continues to review these issues when they disagree with the core premise. They might as well not even bother.

If the dialogue for these biblical figures doesn't ring true enough for you in this satirical comic, then don't read it.

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.
