So far I’ve only read Fraction’s story and that’s what my current score’s based on. I loved the story, the simplistic art matches so well with the writing, and the close up panel of joker’s smile just before batman arrives as well as the ending is something else in making you feel emotions.

From the start of this run I’ve been waiting for a Wow moment to happen. still waiting. This whole arc for me has been a mix of existing stories done worse(city of bane, endgame, a little batman R.I.P with
hallucinations)and attempts to make Wow moments but not delivering

“The Joker War” part five of six! Things have changed, as Batman realizes he can’t fight this war alone. He’s going to need help. Before he faces down The Joker, he must call up his trusty partner Dick Grayson! But can Dick reclaim his lost memories in time to join the battle?

We hope you give us the conclusion that Tynion has promised so much. Personally, I think he did all this to get the Punchline series out, Tynion is not such a bad writer even though I hate how he handles Jason. However, he has given good stories, I do not know what is happening to him. Let's just hope for a good closing. Or maybe they want to do it in the special issue of the Joker war

Batfan - Sep 15, 2020

Yeah I can definitely see a big Punchline run happening before he leaves, which I won’t be buying. I don’t have high hopes for #100 but at least there’s Tomasi’s detective comics to turn to

I feel that this number fell short of the expectations of many. Tynion promised too much and has given too little.
He did not know how to characterize the Joker, there is no dramatic meeting of the Batclan, it is cold, tasteless. Batman seems to be on a couch covering couples therapy, only the couple did not arrive and the beginning without her, talks all the time about his relationship with more

This entire arc up until now could've been done in 2 issues.
What's even more disappointing is the fact that the previous arc also led up to this.
Will be dropping this book after #100

It is so very clear from this issue that Tynion has been stalling throughout this arc just so all the fireworks go off in #100. And considering how the first arc of this run was just a prelude to this arc, that just makes it even more meandering.

The last issue was fantastic, but this entire arc (#95-100) is only worth reading for the wonderful art of Jorge Jimenez and the colors by Tom more

James Tynion doesn't understand the character of the Joker one bit. On the previous issue, when he recalled C.J. Henderson, I got my hopes up a little and I thought maybe it would make a decent Joker story in the end, but in this issue, Tynion disappointed me sharply (once again). His Joker is grim and no fun at all. He's using the army of the living dead against Batman, where's the humor in that? more

Finally, the fast pace that should’ve began at the start of this run. This is probably the best issue out of the average story because stuff actually happens. I liked the different perspectives Tynion gave Harley and Punchline although I’m still not sold on the character. We get she’s Joker’s biggest fan and is delusional but what is there to like about her personality? Her arrogance? Also more

I feel like most of this issue is just a repackaging of what came before. We haven't had a face to face talk between Bruce and Dream Alfred, but almost everything he says is something that's already been explored in this run. And then with Punchline... She's just the worst. Her reason for being trash is not a good reason. She's just an insufferable twenty-something brat who buys into the Joker's b more

Tynion is lucky Jimenez and Morey are putting their all on this series because the story itself so far is still lackluster. Everything feels slow and I can’t say I was surprised or excited by the end of it. On the plus side, I’m glad Harley’s back and Clownhunter seems cool.

Wow, again nothing happens. Batman wakes up after being drugged last issue. Harley was taking care of him, I guess, by watching Batman sleep, and he goes to Monarch Theater where Joker has dug up allt he corpses of the people he has killed. Guess people don't get cremated in Gotham.
