This issue discusses what we know to come, but the characters don't. Kimberly gives thought to when her time as a Ranger will end, and isn't sure she's looking forward to it. I can understand, because the series was heading downhill by then. I dread if the comic will get to that bad point.
This interdimensional battle should be something. I recognize Ransik from Time force on the last page, a more

Alpha to the rescue. Is there a reason the alien king had the same hairstyle as Vegeta from Dragonball? It was also a pretty exciting conclusion to the first battle with King Aradon. A guy like that may have withdrawn, but he'll doubtlessly be back as soon as he sees the perfect chance to strike again.
It seems like things are building up as #100 approaches. It should be a lot of fun.

A story that adds depth to the characters far beyond anything the show would have done. It's difficult to cope with the loss of a parent when you're a teenager. It looks like things are going to be hard for poor Jason as well. It may make it hard for him to perform as a Ranger or his life as a Ranger may become all he feels he has. The possibilities are numerous and intriguing. I expect things to more

This was a battle Royale issue. Soniic vs. Surge, Tails vs. Kit and Dr. Eggman vs. Dr. Starline. Tails seemed to gain ground appealing to his opponent, but he had a few moments where sayiong the wrong thing got Kit pretty vamped up. The bad Doctors was a showdown we've been expecting for the last couple of years. I doubt we've seen the last of Dr. Starline, though I doubt he'll be back very soon. more

A fitting poor end to such a poor story. If I gained anything from this it's a new appreciation for Batman Forever. It wasn't what we hoped for, but it could have been worse. It could have been THIS.

Better than the usual penultimate issue of a story. It looks like this story will end on as exciting a note as it began and has developed these past few months. This was King's best work in several years, that I must say.

Usually by the 4th issue a story reaches its peak of interest. This one looks like it's still going to be pretty exciting to the finish. The best part is King shows he does still have the ability to put out a good Batman story.

Not bad. It's a little less interesting than the last few issues, but this seems to be becoming another story with the whole Justice League getting caught up into it. It hardly seems like a Batman and Superman highlighted story right now. That's really my only complaint.

I'd say Zdarsky's off to a pretty decent start. I just hope he doesn't choose to make his entire run into one big saga. That's what I always dread with a new writer. The plot grows tiresome and I stop caring before everything is resolved. But from what I saw in this issue, he's doing well enough. Better than any other writer since Tomasi was on Detective.

Not too bad, especially for a sign-off issue. It's rare for a writer to end their time with a simple stand-alone story these days, especially on Batman. And I say kudos to Williamson for it. I grow weary of how writers like King and Tynion trying to make a name for themselves by doing something never attempted before.
I also have to say I hope this is the last we hear of Batman Inc. for a lo more

This was another reference to the Space series, which IDW's writers are big fans of, but I am not. So most of this was an average issue. The most impacting part was the end. You never got stuff like that on the old show, that's for sure. It definitely promises an emotional next issue.

After the last couple of issues only gave us brief viewings of this new villain, it's good to see King Aradon in action at last. He's an enemy that doesn't seem to mind fighting his battles himself.

This issue was a bit flat compared to the last two. I have a feeling this is just another tie-in to Dark Crisis. Especially with the last few "Shadow War" chapters I've read. I know DC has big plans for Nezha. He's likely the villain of their latest in an endless line of crises (Don't really know for sure, I'm not following it). This is the first encounter with him, and there's no telling what hap more

Since this series has been released bi-monthly, I'm rather weary of it. It's good that it's finally finished and we can finally get to #50. It was a pretty good issue. Surge and Kit are interesting enough new characters, but like most of the IDW additions, seem to lack something the Archie characters had.

It's kind of nice to have a regular down to Earth Batman story again that doesn't have the characters going on and on about the impact the last big event had on them and that isn't 8 or even more parts long.

Slade fought rather clumsily to be so easily outmatched by Talia. This guy is supposed to be DC's toughest mercenary. Maybe the loss of Respawn got to him. Either way this was an action packed issue with little else to offer. I'll be glad when this 3 star crossover is over.

As expected, this story is reaching its climax, but the most anticipated part is that it will soon be over. If this didn't tie in with Batman I'd not even be reading it at all.
