I was pretty goddamn unimpressed by this to be honest. The spreads are nice, but they're being used as filler. Literal page-filler because there's not enough story.

Batman's narration is ... lacking. "I was the Dark Knight... I was the world's greatest detective... the caped crusader... I was ... a superhero." [END]

What? Really? That's terrible and stupid and no way to end a comic book.

I'm worried this whole "War of jokes and riddles" thing is just a circle-jerk for the artists. There's not much to it. The first issue was at least interesting, and had some nice dramatic moments, but this was a let-down.

And I don't like this versio of the Riddler. He's, like, ripped and looks like a total douchebag. I want Joker to shoot him in the head.

The fact that the Riddler is a big enough threat to pose a challenge to the Joker is (no pun intended) a joke. He's a corny villain, and he's at his best when he's written as kind of weak and opportunistic, bouncing back and forth between being a "good guy" and being a manipulative fuck (a la Hush).

The art is good, but the story needs to improve for me to keep reading.

hmm. Well, as usual, we seem to like the same things but have totally opposite opinions of them haha.

I think it's gonna be a slow burn because it's an 8-part story. Most of these arcs tend to be like 5 or 6. Not that that's really a defense or anything for the pace, rather just a thought.

The art is great, though. That 2-page spread of Ivy taking out the thugs?

Speaking of "the thugs" - I really liked the way that all these kind of nameless victims are given names, and some little piece of trivia to make them actual people in this story.

I don't think anybody likes this version of The Riddler, though. I mean, I don't hate him - I don't think he bothers me the way he does others. But nobody loves this version.

I did like the "mirror" throwback scene, though. And I'll admit that the "May flowers" joke man me smirk. Maybe because it's New England humor. Ha.

Currently reading The Unworthy Thor vol. 1 TPB (and it's fucking awesome).

Also read the first issue of Black Bolt, and it was pretty good.

Also have been reading the more recent Old Man Logan comics. I think I'm up to speed now. He just fought Dracula, and went into space.

That's a good book... Old Man Logan. Edgy as fuck.

But I can't tell you how awesome it is to see Joelle on such a major book. She's so awesome.

NR: Have you heard of this? The TDKR prequel that came out last year to virtually no fanfare?

Miller and John Romita Jr. do a Joker-centric story of the events after Jason Todd's death, in "Batman: The Dark Knight Returns - The Last Crusade."

the leaked poster for Avengers: Infinity War made my heart skip a few beats. Seeing the Guardians Of The Galaxy on the same poster as Avengers and Spider-Man was kind of a "so this is what it's all been leading up to" moment.

Would love to hear any updates from Scott Snyder on Wytches and possibly any new American Vampire SLs, but I think he's mostly there to promote Batman Metal. I also wonder if there will be any tributes to Bernie Wrightson.

I've not read this Wytches but I've heard great things, and I like Scott Snyder quite a bit. Quite a fucking lot actually. The Court of Owls was one of the best additions to the Bat-mythos since fucking ... I don't even know. Since ... bah. Whatever. Long time.

DC/Warner Bros. are going to phase out Ben Affleck's Batman.

Right before the JL movie, a would-be universe building endeavor, is set to come out.

What the fuck? Could they not have figured this out in like 2015? Of course he's not going to work for a number of reasons, but now what the hell are they going to do? Swap him out?

Burn it all down.

Yeah, I guess it is just a rumor. It's weird though... I wanted him to leave since he first took the part. But now he's embedded, and leaving would cause more problems than it would solve, so I don't Fucking know.

I guess there's still hope for certain parts of the franchise, but I think a Batman movie with Batfleck would be the death of everything.

I want them to rebuild from scratch, and do individual movies. NOT build up to a team flick. Great Superman trilogy, great Wonder Woman trilogy, eventually a great Green Lantern and Flash movie at least, if things go well. But these characters don't work as plot devices in the same way Marvel's do. They're older and their stories are less intertwined.

I just want a good fucking Supes series really. Goddammit.

War of Jokes and Riddles is pretty much shit. Filler story. Now a Kite-Man interlude? Stakes better get high fast. This is nowhere near as good as I am Gotham/I Am Bane.
