This character is so completely unbearable, he could never live up to the REAL BATAMAN, BRUCE WAYNE, not even the weakest robin. Insist on this DC guy and we'll see if he doesn't blow up in your face.

Wow, this one was bad. I mean, I expected that but I thought since they brought Coipel, Ridley would try something better but nope. Let's just see some lines here.

"He can't see behind my mask. Or that I've appropriated a mask he helped create" YES, Ridley, thank you. This coming just after talking about sincerity is incredibly ironic but I loved it. At least deep down he knows he's doi more

This character is still a bad impostor with a great bet to fail, no matter how much magic they want or skills that come out of nowhere, this is not a bat and much less Batman, just a crutch to satisfy a few who are not even aware of the publisher .

Maybe Williams can do something about Batman, sometimes he does interesting things, other times he writes very youthful. Pfff I think that next year, if not before I will close the DC chapter due to so much mediocrity.

"Who does the driver remind me of?"

The "mask" that Jace Fox really wears has nothing to do with Batman. The "mask" that Jace Fox wears is one of pretending to be an honest and sincere person, who is an unpunished killer. A self-loathing hit-and-run killer wearing a Batman costume gets his own comic series as "I Am Batman." As he states in "I Am Batman," "If you can fake sincerity, you more

Mingthemerciless - Sep 18, 2021

Great observations Bats. We ve gone over the various reason why Ridleys character isn't going over. The sales speak for themselves..with every Tim Fox book (including trades) the first few issues do well them they drop out of the too 50. By contrast every other bat bat centric book remains in the top 50. As we ve discussed Tim Fox is a poorly conceived character who's stories and mission are not appealing to the audience that buys the bat books. That may change with better writing and art.

Mingthemerciless - Sep 18, 2021

But as of right now Tim Fox appears to be "Batman" by DC edict alone. The fans arent buying it.

I have read bad things and this, not that he tries but since the characterization of each of the characters is bad and stupid, Gar seems to be saved a bit. The fight with Cyclops is exhausting. If Scott wrote this with your butt, I congratulate him, but if you wrote it with your brain, the best writer should dedicate himself to washing dishes or something else.

This was awful from start to finish, at least the Daredevil parts. The whole "re-cid" (recidivist) drug that makes the prisoners antisocial and violent just so they can come back is cringey and very, very idiotic. It's not like the people ending up there were the most responsible citizens in the first place. This victim mentality is nauseously obnoxious. Then there's Cole North who blatantly says more

I mean, I saw it from the first issue, it was pretty obvious but people here called me insane because apparently if you try to read the messages that writers put between the lines you're nuts. Oh well. I've seen this happening more than once in comics but it was usually just artists drawing masks on characters' faces in situations when they weren't really necessary. Apparently Chip went all in.

Merlyn - Sep 8, 2021

What I don't get is why would you be so sadistic to remind people of all this horror instead of helping them escape it? We deal with this daily, we need to try to escape from it at least in fiction, why would you be so petty to remind people of this even in something they read mostly to escape from it. I just don't get it, you'd have to be a pretty shitty person, from my point of view, to do that.
