    part of me thinks they are waiting to see how Tynion's run sales before fully commiting with him.

    Unlike seemingly everyone else here I actually enjoyed Tynion’s Tec lol. He wrote a good Luke Fox, so I’m not opposed at all to Tynion writing Luke’s turn with the cowl.

    He might be a placeholder but I think it's still telling DC put Tynion on their flagship, and he does like Luke...but I can see them wanting to start fresh with 5G!Batman.

    Haha. Well, I ADORE Tynion's Tec. For those two years, it was my favorite title of the time. And I loved the way he wrote Luke, even though it was a bit of a departure from Luke's solo series and Batman Eternal characterization.

    I imagine they keep Tynion how much really specific world building his pitch seems to be doing, and how the rumored Luke Fox is fairly prominent in it. It reminds me of Bendis and DeConnick's situations on Superman and Aquaman, and I'd bet both are staying right where they are for 5G.

    Old money AND new money are both corrupt. I would really like to see a BATMAN title that is aware of this, and builds off that to show us Bruce Wayne navigating a world of scary elites with unlimited resources. See how he wages his war on them, or how he changes to survive.

    Overall this sounds like a 'hard pass' till they announce a new team. With Ellis on THE BATMAN'S GRAVE I have my Bruce Wayne fix for now!

And guess this is supposed to somehow lead to explaining how, Luke, of all people, somehow becomes Batman, because hey, his daddy is already the Butler and they will make a great team together!
    King hadn't planned for Alfred's death to stick. DC decided, after the issue had been released, to make it permanent and King had to adjust accordingly.

    That'a great idea and one that's long overdue. I'm really digging Batman's Grave too, btw.

    King didn't mean Dick's headshot to stick either. Maybe he needs to stop doing major damage to characters if he doesn't mean them to stick. Obviously he is wrong to think his "shock value" maiming and killing of characters would just be resolved and back to normal come next issue somehow given DC's tendency to make them stick AND the difficulty of realistically making it all go away in one issue. It boils down to a major problem with him: doesn't have enough respect for the characters & anything goes for some cheap shock.

    He definitely seems to be doing some build up to Luke, and maybe the reconstruction of Gotham will be more 5G plot relevant then just a current writers plot.

    There's some ideas here but I'm not sure it really makes any sense for the villains of Gotham to be terrified of Batman when they constantly do battle with him. Guess we'll see how it turns out.

    The news of Jorge Jimenez in March has me hanging onto Batman for another two issues/one month. Jimenez is a LONG time favorite of mine (since Smallville Season 11: Olympus - what I wouldn't give for him to do a Wonder Woman run), and his covers look amazing!

    I might pick up the first arc simply for Jimenez; hot damn Super Sons was gorgeous because of him
