    Default Batman #84 Talk.

    Two good things about the issue. Jorge Fornes art and we're an issue away from King's time on the main Batman book coming to an end. You'll be drunk early with the amount of earliers here.

    I appreciate a good continuity-pluck issue. Fornes art made it really work for me, and I was in it for the art more than anything. I dunno, I guess we get a solid motive. And some nice continuity cross-referencing. This one feels like the "how long did this take?" Geoff Johns Crossover issue. With a Brian Azzarello Crossover built in. It still doesn't solve the problem of City of Bane being undercut as a concept by the fact that it was never actually a City of Bane story. King's thesis statement might be that "Bane is Evil" but the story told presents a thesis that "Bane is Bullshit". No more than a physical threat to Batman, always ignorantly being the pawn of other players.
    Retro315 no more. Anonymity is so 2005.

    I think the biggest problem on this final part of the run is the death of Alfred
    It is hard to recoincile what Thomas wants to do taking in what he did with Bane and the dead of alfred despite being unintended by the run does stick up like a soar thumb

    The conclusion I got from this issue is that Flashpoint Batman should have been left alone instead of being shoehorned into becoming Darth Batman.

    Wally West deserved better than Heroes in Crisis

    Pull List:

    DC: JUSTICE LEAGUE, JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK, JUSTICE LEAGUE ODYSSEY, ACTION COMICS, LEVIATHAN, LAST KNIGHT ON EARTH

    MARVEL: AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, VENOM, WEB OF VENOM, ABSOLUTE CARNAGE, DAREDEVIL, HOUSE OF X, POWERS OF X, FANTASTIC FOUR

    This. I'll stick to the Flashpoint event, the story by Azzarello and the Button crossover for Flashpoint Batman.

    Everything about this issue just felt like padding until the next. This has been my biggest gripe with City of Bane; this arc has been stretched way too thin.

    A few more earliers and Thomas would have witnessed the creation of the universe.

    That has been King's shtick for some time now. He promises that when we finally see where he's going with his story everything that felt like filler or like it didn't make sense will be worth it.
    We still have one issue left, but if HiC is anything to go by it's probably not going to change people's minds on this run.

    Yep. Thomas Wayne is ruined in my eyes.

    I forgot King wrote that POS. When King's good, he's good but when he's bad, it's bad.

    Try and do what I am and think on Flashpoint Batman before King though as stated, I did like the Button cowritten by Joshua Williamson.

    Yes, that is exactly what I felt.
    «Let me get this straight: you kink that your client, […], is secretly a vigilante who spends his nights beating criminals to a pulp with his bare hands and your plan is to blackmail this person? Good luck.»

    «Joker is a violent and inartistic movie, not like that masterpiece of A Clockwork Orange.» Yes, some critic of the AMPAS was able to say that.

    «What weight 6 ounces, sits in a tree and is very dangerous?» «A sparrow with a machine gun!» from "Batman'66 the movie"

    I actually really enjoyed the button and Thomas Wayne in that story. The differences between Thomas there and every other appearance in King's run afterwards makes me wonder how much of it was written by Williamson or Geoff Johns, who was apparently also involved in writing that story.
