You know, I used to complain that today's comics were all pictures and no words. Well, Tynion has gotten around that problem by putting in a lot of words without any action. And what action there is, is just hitting without context.

We don't see how Bats actually out-think his opponents. He just hits them. And when that doesn't work, he hits them harder -and that works. We don't see him more

Agreed fun conversation.

Comics Code Authorities - Jun 8, 2021

Your take on Ghost Maker is head-on. He's just a wannabe. And all he was trying to do was impress Harley out of hopes of bedding her. Truly pathetic. If Tynion is trying to sell this character to us he's doing a pretty bad job of it.

Supposedly shes from Bolivia, but it might as well be anywhere. The character is completely unlikeable.

TJMB3891 - May 4, 2021

For some reason I thought it was Brazil lol. I'm not a fan of the character either. She's totally pointless and we have too many Earth lanterns already. She could very easily be edited out and nobody would care.

Amazing art, Jimenez is at his peak. It did however feel more like I was reading that Cyberpunk comic, not a Batman comic. Tremendous in that three issues in to this arc and still basically nothing has happened. The mayor's police squad has it's first recruit and Batman got a tour of the unsanity collective's secret base. Snoooooze.

The anime art style kind of works. I'm only really reading on to find out what the 'secret' is. Bit cheesy and hollow so far. Lots of talks of high stakes but starting to get bored.

Bats20832 - May 2, 2021

Uktsr - the closest Marvel character to The Batman was the 20th century Reed Richards of Fantastic Four. But even the brilliant Mr. Fantastic was not as calulating and strategic as The Batman. The Marvel characters (angst-aside) are largely action characters. Classic The Batman is a general in a war against crime. As much as he acts, he also thinks more. I see this Batman character as deductive, but not much of a Thinker. The thinking part is the essential power of The Batman.

Bats20832 - May 2, 2021

Even Adam West in the 1960s camp version Batman TV show was a calculating thinker as the character. It's a key differentiator from other modern costumed characters. Last century, the early characters were "thinkers," because few had "superpowers." The Shadow, Green Hornet, The Batman all come from the same era of costumed heroes using their minds as well as their determination to fight crime.

Great title until this latest arc. Hopefully gets back on track but I dont honestly think I can read another whilst this artist's name is on the cover. Mashed up distorted faces, lips looking like the joker. I honestly have seen amateur artists magnitudes of order higher quality than this art. Sorry to ramble but it makes the whole issue offensive to the eyes. Makes liefield's work looks phenomena more
