This story has potential, but right now it's just too frustrating to read with this never-ending influx of new characters, and the fact that the current Batfamily is basically just Harley and Ghost-maker.


The art is still absolutely stunning and is one of the redeeming qualities of the book.

Remember if you have a diferent opinion you are racist, homophobe, pedo..whatever.If something is pure garbage, it is pure garbage, that´s it. I dont care if it´s for kids, for women or dogs all I care it is the quality of the work.

Finally, after a couple of issues of Catwoman without Catwoman, we get to see her again.

Let's see, who did Tynion rip-off this issue? Well his new armored vigilante is John Walker replacing Captain America all over again, and that plot was done more than 30 years ago. The armor is a nice touch, but it is also just Azrael again.

Mingthemerciless - Jul 8, 2021

Not sure if its the same with you but with a story like knightfall (poorly aped by tom king with city of bane and Tynion with Joker war) it felt much more organic and it had a genuine resolution....that a more violent batman in Valley was not what gotham needed and only Bryce Wayne could be batman. Tynion cant seem to tap into anything deeper than fanfiction and hollow original characters. All this while looking to leas to Future state and remove Bruce Wayne for another checklist creation.

Mingthemerciless - Jul 8, 2021

Bendis basically aged Jon Kent (another checklist character) solely to accommodate future state and sideline Clark Kent. That's just basement level storytelling and DC wonders why its got problems? And advances are saying that fear state is to set up major changes in 2022. Does DC know Future state bombed?

even though it takes a pause from the main story, I want to see the progress of the story but it was good, and the main story will continue from the next issue.

It was a character-driven story where Catwoman's Past was explained characters like Shoe,maggie.
Catwoman did not appear in this issue though. but does not mean it was bad.

I loved it. It's a great character-focused Issue that walks the reader down memory lane. It offers a look into what of Selina's long history Ram V is going to include. After all the care Selina has shown toward the people of Gotham, it's chilling to see a colder side of her, that she might need to survive Father Valley and Fear State.

The art worked well, had an almost dream-like qualit more
