That "best day eva" is the worst line I've ever read in comic books. If you're a girl and your boyfriend leaves you for the pride squad, IT'S THE BEST DAY EVA!!! Pathetic how they're trying to write these kind of things into existence.

These stories where boring and uninteresting the first time they where printed. Let alone the second time for a cheap cash grab during pride month, because nobody cares about these stories when they came out originally, as seen by the fact the first issue tim came out in, sold less then the previous issue did that was the end of an arc.

My rating has nothing to do with sexuality and all to do with a poorly written story. It is not well written! So many reviewers will use this one to virtue signal that it isn't even funny!

Where do I even begin?

Challenge for Fitzmartin: stop taking the plots of other detective comics and making it seem like you did anything with them. This is just lazy writing. The fact that I knew what story she would use next based on the preview talk of a stolen diamond and framing someone, given her previous history with other old detective stories, made this as lame as the previous more

It'll be interesting to see the reactions. I'm still not entirely sold on the general feeling they seem to be going for with this as it seems ill-suited for a serious Tim Drake solo. That being said I could have done Rossmo's art if the story was spectacular, but Fitzmartin has already shown us her inability to tell a story regardless of who her artist is or the characters she gets to handle. If they want a good Tim solo, they need to ditch her first.

SomeRandomSmartA55 - Oct 27, 2022

Oh absolutely they need to get Chuck Dixon, James Tynion, Chris Yost, Fabian Nicieza, or Devin Grayson to take over the writing

I was very curious how Johns would explain the existence of the three Jokers. I thought maybe these are just a three Jokers from different timelines like Golden Age, Pre-Crisis and Post-Crisis Jokers? I mean, we had Kara Danvers' Supergirl and Earth-Two Kara Zor-L... so it's still according to comic books rules. But apparently I was wrong.

This is a really good analysis of what worked and didn't work in the story for you. I enjoyed reading it, thanks. Love your point about the three Batmen. It could be something we see from Johns and Fabok in the next 5'ish years! I'm also curious to read Zero Year, now.

This was a massive disappointment for me. The story itself fails to show why there was even a need for 3 jokers and it really shows how DC, more specifically Geoff Johns, never really had a plan for DC Rebirth. What was the point of the 3 Jokers? Turns out oh it doesn't really matter since only one does. Why have this mystery then? And why make Joe Chill the target to be the new joker? In my more

Yes, my ideal Batman run would work more along the line of Detective where arc would alternate between new and old villains. 6 issues to tell a story for an old villain, while using the next 6 to introduce a new villain or a new story for Batman. So that will keep the reader guessing as to who the next Batman villain or story is. If you keep using the same villain over and over again, with the same story basically, it does get repetitive and readers start to drop books

Batman Jones - Oct 29, 2020

Never had a plan for Rebirth indeed. So true. I remember loving and being so excited by DC Rebirth Special and each of the promising new arcs that were clearly meant to spin out of it. Well, I re-read it after reading this issue and was flabbergasted that not a single thing in that comic book resulted in anything at all, apart from that dang button. (Remember Diana's brother Jason? Yeah, me neither.) Literally nothing came from that Special apart from the utterly disappointing Doomsday Clock.

Underwhelming ending for an overhyped series.

Art was great, but the whole story was absolutely useless and added nothing to the mythos besides the Joe Chill redemption and wife & child twist which invalidates the whole point of the Killing Joke. If Joker was always an asshole before his transformation, then the "one bad day" perspective threaded through the book m more

Nah, he wasn’t evil before that, he had signs of it, he wasn’t having a healthy relationship so he lied about it and that one bad day completely transformed him to it, made him go all out and embrace who he is. Three jokers said he was kind of abusive to them and they didn’t want to be part of that family. It doesn’t say he was evil or an asshole, it was just that he wasn’t true to what happened. They just wanted to dump him.

Toonstrack - Oct 29, 2020

Jokers "one bad day" was ALWAYS BS and hes been proven wrong on it many mant times including in TKJ. He tried to do the same thing to Gordon and it DIDNT WORK. Joker was never an innocent victim, he made bad decisions and did bad things long before that vat of acid.

The art's great and all, but the plot is obvious. It'll turn out the pills did nothing and Joker is as nuts/maybe-not-nuts as ever. He'll run for mayor, win, and then just as all seems lost he'll whisper to Batman that he poisoned Alfred, setting all this in motion. And Batman will record that and be vindicated.
