Batman (2016-) #50 (Batman (2016) (Single Issues) #50) Reviews
Loved the guest art.
Though.. Except that Alfred moment it was a bit letdown to me. But last panel - woohoo.
First, I would say I didn’t really care for the “interludes” that were letters from Catwoman and Batman to each other with a splash page from a guest artist. The art was fine in most cases, just the letters were really dumb, like a lot of the dialogue between Selina and Bruce is tbh (namely, that issue where the only dialogue was them saying bat and cat to each other).
Secondly, I read the NYT article that spoiled the issue last week when it came out. I really really don’t get why DC did ...more
The two highlights of this issue:
1. “And you were another man asserting your will. Trying to lord over a world you didn’t understand.” Some great tea right here.
2. Alfred sitting down next to Bruce and hugging him after delivering a sass attack.
All told, I wasn’t impressed. It ended just like I expected it to and I heartily object to the “happy”thing. I am so ready move on and get passed the drama that NYT article caused.
I don't how good this issue was written or how beautiful those pages were drawn by several artists (and they are indeed good and beautiful). The story betrayed me. King betrayed the fans.
I woke up to spoilers for this from the New York Times (NOT cool, NYT). Actual rating not reflecting comic; going by what the NYT said I'm disappointed, but I'd be lying if I said I was surprised.
I saw the hype on Twitter about the NYT review and was frustrated at people's reaction. I love what Tom King has done so far and the Wedding takes place over a few issues. It is a good story so far and good stories have conflict and things don't go smoothly, that's what makes them good stories. I am excited to read the next few issues and see where King is taking us.
Let me begin by saying that I think Tom King is a brilliant writer, easily the best working in mainstream comics today; his Mister Miracle run is probably the most significant work of comics in years, perhaps of this decade. I've been following this Batman run since the Rooftops two-parter (#14-15) which I still count among the best batman I've ever read. His voice with these characters is so distinct that it feels weird now when I read other writers using them.
I don't see how anyone c ...more
