    A fair point, and I pretty much was waving my arms around when I typed that. It's tough to define. I felt Nolan's Dark Knight movies captured the spirit of Batman, despite their departure from canon....

    Yes, and also comic book fans tend to vastly overestimate their market value. The number of people who read BoP regularly makes up a vanishingly small percentage of paying moviegoers. Who cares about...

    To paraphrase, the death of one person is a tragedy, the death of a million people (or a city) is a statistic. So I tend not to get too invested in the "big" stories. On the other hand, it's kind of...

    Reading digitally is like browsing with an adblocker. I find print comics sort of jarring now.

    Yeah, I agree with this. The best parts are the dialogue and banter between the characters. There's a lot of humanity there. And the story beats are well-timed, but the overall story is kind of...

    He kind of needs the equivalent of Born Again, a real before/after set of events that defines him as an independent adult. The super-spy stuff was so unique and fresh and I think it should be brought...

    I love grass-roots Batman and I'm happy his new ride is a souped-up muscle car. Gets the job done, '80s style. Minimising gadgetry and Lucas Fox's super-genius ability to invent "prototypes" that...

    People read superhero comics for all kinds of reasons of course, but I’m curious: do you actually like Batman comics outside of that marriage story thread, considering it will never be some permanent...

    Still a little too gadgety for my liking, but I like Tynion's dialogue a lot. Some good character moments too. He seems like a more confident writer these days. And as a lover of an ambiguously...

    Does anyone have any idea when the final trade will be released? Looking forward to a re-read of this series.

    Tynion seems like a nice guy and he often nails dialogue. But overall this feels like something a fan would write, and that's never a good thing.

    My biggest issue with Tynion is his reliance on sci-fi gadgetry and Battlestar Galactica-levels of personal transport. Batman flying around Gotham in what is effectively a spaceship, calling upon...

    I've long maintained that a universe with "real" time that ends with a reboot every five to ten years or so is the way to go. That way, creators get to write stories with real consequences, and not...

    I'm not sure if I'd start with this, but I'd love to see a JSA movie set in the 1940s with a strong Darwin Cooke feel to it. We saw hints of how cool this would be with WW and starting things off...

    My recommendation is to finish the original 41 issue series, as it doesn't sound like you have. Then read Killers, which deepens Virginia's story. After that, you might be more interested in Sunshine...

    That had not occurred to me. It feels almost Morrison-like. In fact, the entire story feels sort of like a Morrison creation except the characters are the usual instantly relatable Lemire creations.

    That occurred to me but it seems kind of obvious. I was thinking an actual alien. However, it can possess people, like Norton Sinclair, so maybe you're right. Then there was that sort of cosmic,...

    This is a great idea. That old Action Comics Superman was a lot different than today's, kind of a gritty, hard-punching hero of the working class.
