Amazing ending, only one thing left me somewhat sad. Eddie remember your promise to Dylan

I gave it a 5 because I love Dexter Soy so those points are only for him and I subtracted for life points because the writing was a mess. Geoffrey Thorne is kind of a jerk, if you've seen his Twitter you know this but maybe you didn't know that he's also bad at writing comic books. This issue wasn't terrible but it wasn't far off and for some strange reason he's using Teen Lantern who is just a po more

WHY is Harley Quinn still getting featured on this book? Seriously, she was pretty much the main character of Joker War and she's still on this

Only redeeming thing about this book is the art, which remains as fantastic as ever with Jimenez. The writing is strictly sub-par and should not be the norm for DC's premiere title.

Ming - Good point: "Quinn wasn't persecuted." In Quinn origin story of 2013 blames her family (problem always family, always "someone else's fault," other than taking responsibility for your own actions). But yes, Intellectual Property argument (I bet DC would debate) and "expand the audience" mission going on. AT&T-WB/(DC)/ Disney (Marvel) debate is over what they can put on video/movies.While DC dotted-line to Warner since 1969, ATT 2018 purchase was game-changer.

Bats20832 - Apr 10, 2021

Same issue with Marvel purchase by Disney in 2009. We now have movie coming up with Jane Foster as female "Thor." ATT/Disney, etc. want to reframe Comics and Comics Characters for video/movie marketplace "audience expansion." So ATT will also ignore Harley Quinn choosing to be a mass murderer. She has the right identity, and will get the right sales in the only market that they think matters in terms of $$$$. Not only just reinvention, but re-investing in comic character to get best ROI.

Wow, Tynion really must think himself so smart with the "strawman" metaphor that wasn't AT ALL super obvious to anyone. The Harley bits were cringe, even though I'm not against her role as sidekick to Batman, it's just that the writing was painfully bad. And again with the parallels to covid quarantine.

Bats20832 - Apr 9, 2021

With respect, while I agree with a lot of the commenters, I don't see this as a "Tynion problem," but a "DC Comics problem." DC has been told AT&T, and told its writers, find a new audience... OR ELSE. So all of them are looking to create new characters to "expand" the audience. They figure they HAVE you as a reader. You're not going anywhere. So logic, reason, loyalty - phaw! It is all and only about $$$.

Bats20832 - Apr 9, 2021

For example, take a look at new "Harley Quinn" writer, Katana Collins, for "Batman White Knight" insanity. "Best-selling writer" Katana Collins is a romance story writer and "go-go dancer." I mean, seriously, do you think she cares Quinn was a psycho killer and The Batman's mission? Please. This is a great chance to make $$$ and get publicity. And good PR for DC... to "expand audience." That is the heart of Future State, no matter who the writer is.

Let's see. Everything is a set up of the new status quo. Scarecrow is calling the shots with the guy who will make tomorrow. Harley tries to do good, but because she's nuts, she's hitting cops who surprise her with baseball bats.

The Gotham police are actually doing their job, so they don't appreciate Bats contaminating crime scenes, and Barb is setting up mini-Batsignals across Gotham. more

I don't know Tynion I was very disappointed with his Joker War, they left excellent elements for a Buum, you know Ric could have fought directly with Batman (I can imagine the drama) Tim being precarious with the metal instability of his mentor, Damian gone, Red Hood accepted with great tension between the bat (the garbage that Swan wrote does not count) instead it was a disaster.

"it seems as if they want to retire these two" - DC leadership and writing team would have done this 10+ years ago, if they cou.d. The problem has been $$$$. They can't do it until they can justify with sales figures. Part of Future State is to get sales to a point where they can do this and similar moves... and leave "retired" characters in archives where they can resurrect them for occasional "big events" or specials. But wishes are not $$$$, so they keep redefining around the edges for now.

Agree 200% with not knowing Phantasm! I see the same thing starting with Red X in Teen Titans Academy. Introducing a cartoon character into the comics should be a big deal, but Tom King seems like he is too lazy to do any of the leg work and just hopes you watched the movie!

I think King should read some real literature where real writers show him how to really flashback, Luis Spota, William Faulkner, Juan Rulfo or John Le Carré.
