Matt is writing this stuff because DC Comics sales are in the trash, with the belief this will improve them. Bad idea. Bad management. And using this disaster to slime JSA heroes is a seriously bad idea. And of course, ripping off the head of Solomon Grundy ("Sol" eyeroll) does not kill him. Someone should read comics someday.

By the way, I still am not confident that Batman is "dead" i more

"Then let's do this. Together." A story based on courage, sacrifice, fearlessness, and heroes and heroines. A story from a time when our heroes and heroines WERE heroes and heroines. Some comics reviewers might not recognize it because it may be out of step with post-modern comics anti-heroism.

The Post-Modern Anti-Hero "Justice League"? Jon Kent creates a "Justice League" with child-mass murderer Harley Quinn and criminal Killer Frost. There is no plan, no structure, no direction, no story.

Here is the problem with the Batman, Inc. storyline: Ghost-Maker is a killer. Batman Issue #109, page 10 (June 2021)- quoting from Ghost-Maker himself: "I was eight years old when a psychologist put a name to what make me different. I am a Psychopath. I do not feel empathy or fear."

The story fell short of expectations, and it was mostly because it completely downplayed Dick's and Damian's bond.
These two characters have a lot of history and are probably the closest amongst the Robins. Damian just plain hating Dick or saying he never looked up to him pretty much destroys what could be an emotional or compelling story of Damian having to kill a brother or even a semi-fat more

James Tynion got his last story in with Matt Rosenberg having to deal with the fallout. But the only legitimate part of the story, I believe, is that Damian Wayne would have no hesitation about killing Grayson after Grayson murdered Damian's father.

You have ruthless psychotic Dick Grayson mass-murdering his family.
And now he is kind-hearted psychotic vampire ruler Dick Grayson.

This Batman is written like absolute shit. Can I borrow whatever weed you smoked to make this seem like a 10/10...... Batman would not condone looting because " those stores have insurance and these people just want the American dream of a bigger tv and a faster car etc" This is the worst Batman has been written since Tom king wrote him as a bitch who needed catwoman to do anything. 10/10 this guy is either the author himself or paid to write this review here. This was trash

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.

As soon as it was said that the enemy was one of them, I immediately guessed who it would be, what I liked here was the sacrifice, although this has not felt anything new if not in constant winks with Dceased, the sacrifice that Jason made to saving Damian by offering his life and preferring death before his conversion as a true hero would make this number worth it.

In a creative story, a talented writer does not have to "cheat" to create effective mystery/suspense/thriller.
