I have a lot of problems with King's Selina, but that's not one of them.
    Gotham belongs to the people of Gotham, not Bruce, Selina, Bane, Thomas or anyone alone.
    And King's Selina never struck me as a down to earth, standing up for the people person. She stole her wedding dress even though she had a rich boyfriend for fun.

    This is such a scam. There's no story in any of this.

    I am completely disconnected from this storyline. I read this and understand nothing and don't care to either.

    900% agree. The problem for me is that Bane is about my least favorite villain. SO dragging this story on & on is just salt in the wound.
    I read every issue thinking "okay, get on with it already!". The Bat/Cat parts are the only interesting bits for me. And while the Alfred death was a shocker, how many issues did it take to even get back to that thread?

    Soooo, current news, Bane is still alive, only in a coma, for someone else at anytime to awaken him up?

    Come on, he was shot in the head, a couple issues ago, he's even been eulogized by his creator, Chuck Dixon, soonafter, only for a chicken out that early?

    Yes, Bane is a big, big, big guy in the Batman lore, but can't a death from a big story last at least five years?

    The headshot really gave the violent thud of convincing death, rather than the umpteen times Joker's been apparently dead, two of them by Dixon.

    Alfred is dead so you could get your wish and that death could last. That death also will have more consequences. That death is already leading to change in the Batman world.

    You can't complain about a death not lasting when you don't know how Alfred's will playout [and yes I'm aware that Doomsday Clock has Alfred but that means nothing]

    Tim was stabbed in the heart and he was fine the next issue.

    Bruce was shot and he was fine the next issue.

    Bane was shot and he suffered some damage. He doesn't have to die and it was never said that he was dead.

    Chuck might have proclaimed him dead [he was incorrect]

    Wait so Alfred is dead? That was the big game changer that was teased? A butler is dead? The horror how will Bruce make his tea now? Lol.

    Do you guys remember that entire issue that was just Thomas reciting a nursery rhyme? Wild.

    Thankfully I missed that gem (or have blocked it from my mind). *ugh*

    So is King gonna end this with Thomas taking on the role of Alfred going forward then?

    Well crap, so the venom in Bane pretty much makes him immortal now? Is he like Wolverine and can regrow part of his brain or something? Unless that Headshot hit in a particular way it's hard not to say, hey we got ourselves a dead one here.
