    Default Batman #61 preview

    Maybe we won't get a direct continuation of last issue just yet. Let's wait and see

    This was... okay enough? I mean, I saw that "twist" coming a mile away and I wasn't a fan of the villain the first time he appeared but still, the contrast between Bruce and him was decently done.

    Art was good overall. Not bad, not great, passable.

    Pretty much what I thought about the issue. Ok
    The art itself was definition of servicable as well (IMO).

    This kid is batsh!t crazy, lol. I love these little one and done side stories, (Crazy Matt first appeared in #38 I believe) that King drops in, in between the bigger overall story he’s telling. It’ll be interesting to see Matthew’s progression while in Arkham, won’t be easy adding to his body count in there.

    Maybe a stupid question but:

    spoilers:
    Is it possible that Matthew is going to be the Arkham Knight in Detective Comics?

    Nah I doubt it. Tomasi is going to want to set things up on his own.

    Why is everyone trying to be Morrison? Grant took Batman and did amazing things when it came to tinkering with the past and throwing things at us that we weren't expecting. But now two writers have tried to imitate his style brazenly. It's not even subtle. King is trying to be cute. It's not working for me. It's even come down to throwing a nonsense issue before continuing his storyline just like Morrison did before ending his Batman Inc. run. Sigh...

    Seriously, where do you see any similarities? And how is having a "nonsense" issue something unique to Morrison? How do we even know this is a "nonsense" issue? A lot of King's issues don't seem to tie into the overall plot of his arc.
