This issue reiterated points already made. The Omni verse needs a Batman. After defeating the enemy du jour, this earth’s Selina kicks one-handed Bruce through the portal and he meets all the other Bats in all the other earths.

Did Batman just lose a hand? In a story where Batman is fighting a foe we don’t know, one whose motives are unknown other than to be evil so Bats has someone to fight, Ghostmaker cuts off Bats’ hand.

So what the hell, dude. My reaction wasn’t how will he handle a life-altering injury. It was “no way this will stick, so who cares.” But that is just me. Your mileage may vary. B more

DC screwed the pooch after Zdarsky’s first story arc. Multiversal madness is old news. Even in Batman’s case.

On the plus side, as I was typing Zdarsky’s name my iPhone tried to auto-correct to Z’Dar, as in the late Robert, star of the Maniac Cop series. “CoRdElLlLlL…”

Using comics Elseworld stories to put homophobic words in the mouth of a major costumed hero helps no one. Yes, of course, people will blame Meghan Fitzmartin (and given her educational background even more controversial). But let's be clear DC Comics editors approve this and DC Comics publishes this.

Tom King's background & writing in hero-based comics is disturbing. Even if USA were in different era it might. But with massive anti-human rights campaigns by CIA, to have have a former CIA go into DC Comics and manipulate editorial on justice stories is troubling. The Batman represents defiance to blind authority and a symbol of individual to stand up for justice, even when authority cannot/will not protect public. Having a former CIA writing on The Batman sounds like bad conspiracy novel.

Mingthemerciless - Jul 23, 2022

You're not wrong Bats. CIA/state department has an abysmal record with conflicts and "regime change". Who do you think is keeping hostilities going in the Ukraine? They've stymied peace negotiations throughout the conflict. StateDept/CIA indeed advocates blind obedience to authority. Batman is a force of justice not authority.

I get my numbers on what is available to the general public (I've included a link) I didn't see the series in Amazon's top 100 sellers either. So I don't know what you're basing your viewpoint on. For what it is worth every time I've walked into the LCS there are at least 5 shelf copies of the series unsold. https://icv2.com/articles/markets/view/51096/top-50-comics-april-2022

Mingthemerciless - May 13, 2022

Taylor was pushing the Amazon top 100 a couple of months back. The reality is the book is selling poorly other than gimmuck issues which spike for that month. Same as you noted the LCS I go to the book is not selling. Now to be fair the only DC books that are selling well are the batman books.

Truth is, hardly anything matters in comics. Every now and then publishers reset continuities either because they became convoluted, messy and often self contradictory, or sales dropped alongside readers' interest.

Dark Crisis is completely 5G, they insist something is not working, but for the first time I think there is a little bit of light at the end of some series like Detective Comics, White Knight, and I just got Batman/Superman this issue was nice. I don't trust in Chip either, he's not a bad writer but I'm very disappointed in BUL, so I don't expect much from him.
