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.

The apparent culmination of the Game of Thrones-style struggle for DC continuity supremacy is here, and I worry that the least potent of the mix won out.

Tom King fell by the wayside, his Heroes in Crisis devolving into a critical disaster. His Batman couldn't recover from the post-Catwoman non-wedding storylines. Now, his Strange Adventures and his forthcoming Bat/Cat miniseries have more

My review is only about the Ashes Of Eden story by Sam Johns and Laura Braga. A horrible story that erases all character progress of Poison Ivy and pretty much turns her into a Nazi planning to murder the entire Gotham City as a response to her garden getting burned. Laura Bragas art is buried underneath 90s edginess and what pretty much is a copy paste of Carnage USA only with Ivy in the place of more

The only defect I saw in this number was the quantum leap from the camera to Gotham, however for those of us who follow the series we are going to find a lot of sense, it was an excellent drama with action.

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

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

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.

Beyond_Batman - Sep 18, 2020

What did you want Jurgens to do with Bea? Stop the whole joker war storyline so he could dedicate an issue to their relationship? Go watch a soap opera. In my opinion it was a perfect way to put it on the back burner until the joker war is over in only one page like it did. A relationahip issue doesnt do much to add to that storyline. This book is not perfect, but that is not one of the issues unless you want a soap opera.
