RedKryptoSuperman - Aug 12, 2022

Thank you for the concern on how I spend my money, however completion of a run is important and I'm optimistic that things will improve eventually. Bendis at least understood the character of Superman and knew to keep stories short to appeal to a large audience. The formula is simple 3 stories that are 4 issues each that tie into a larger story arc to be resolved during the summer annual season. This is just banking on trade paperback sales. I understand their shift but I don't have to like it

Amazing Psycamorean - Aug 13, 2022

...I mean, have you been out of comics since the late 90s? Cause that's when the trade paperbacks really began to play a role in the construction of stories in the ongoing titles. Bendis' run had long arcs, but they were incoherent, which is why you thought it didn't.

what were they trying to say with the ending? Was it that the parents argument that ept on following the child?

DDJamesB - Aug 8, 2022

Now this is strictly my opinion, so it could be wrong. I took it that the dad/ the "broken home" is pretty much the monster. The dad was caught in the closet and instead of owning up to it he blamed it on the kid having nightmares. I just think the emotional distress the dad put on the family made the child's ideas get worse and thats why no matter what it followed them because, its pretty much the dad's crappy parenting that is leading the child to have these issues.

This was a fun read albeit with low points. There are some really bad issues in this where Batman takes a back seat in his own story to characters like Peacekeeper-01 & Poison Ivy. Peacekeeper has an arc that feels the same but different, and the whole "Queen Ivy" arc fell pretty flat for me. The Gardener was an unnecessary villain and wasn't needed at all.

Hey Dan, so I dont know if you can do this but is it possible for you to remove the Batman News website from this and not count their reviews anymore? The reason is that whenever they review something, they do not actually give out solid criticism on why the issue worked, and they are emotional and it brings toxicity in the comic book review community. I understand if you cant do it but they often give books negative reviews because a character is eating a hamburger, or how they go on rants.

Bats20832 - Thank you. I think that unfortunately many new Batman readers that jumped on at TheNew52 (and afterward) really had gotten a poor iteration of Batman. I’d say this current version of Batman is actually worse than the paranoid and psychotic Batman from back in Tower of Babel and War Games/War Crimes. Batman became a meathead bruiser in the hands of Scott Snyder. And he only further devolved with Tom King.

myconius - Aug 7, 2022

Bats20832 - Agreed! I’m not a fan of reboots. But honestly so much damage was done to Batman after Tom King put his stink on the character. His is the most pathetic version of the character I’ve ever seen. Batman was inspired by so many great fictional characters like Zorro and Sherlock Holmes. In the Bronze age they even started taking influence from James Bond to make Batman even cooler. But now he’s just a sad, weak, emotionally unstable basket case. They really need to fix the character.

Batman is getting his face caved in by a giant robot, the Batfamily has to come save him and then are demolished themselves. That's pretty high stakes. Then he resorts to using another unstable failsafe program. That matters. The complaint of set up issues having nothing of substance is getting ridiculous when this is normal practice in comics now. Stories are told over longer arcs that have payoff an issue or two later so they give you an action heavy issue to put the protagonist at a low point

Quinn - Aug 4, 2022 (edited)

Not high stakes, predictable cliches that show no clever plotting or characterization. Or I could be wrong.
