It was a book that surprised me and from what I read in other places more than one did. Rosenberg knew how to play with the intrigue, with the times correctly and even though Jason may be wrong in placing his trust in the zombie team, there is a lot of truth in the words said to his mentor who sadly is his father for him, even though it seems that this is a one-way thing.

Pleasant conclusion, to an emotional point.

Jason saves the day, almost at the cost of his life.
It was a good dialogue between Dick and Jason, making Dick look like the old Dick, smart and kind and Jason being mature.

Ouch, it hurt that it wasn't Bruce, and I think it was great for many of us. He deceived us and now breaks hearts by confronting us with Jason's nee more

This was pretty good, seeing Jason achieving peace in a different way than usual was interesting. Though Warmonger is a shitty villain for sure, he's not Gotham material. Even the usurper Batman is tolerable here and I liked that Williamson made Jason the equivalent of Gordon in this Future State. Overall a pretty decent book though I'm not a fan of the manga style, not here at least. Still gets 0 more
