    Well, with the new Coronavirus lockdown, I guess I’ll have time to read this entire run.

    How’s the continuity between the books?

    There is a little continuity, but they tend to be kind of their own books for the most part.

    Is that Mr. Oz who saved Tim from all of those drones?

    Oof. This Night of the Monster Men is a real chore to make it through.

    Of the crossovers that Tom King's Batman is involved with, the only one I would say comes close to necessary for his run is The Button. He only writes one of the four issues of the run, with the rest by Josh Williamson, but it is important for the final few arcs of his run.

    (Though you probably get enough exposition in those issues themselves you could skip The Button if you wanted to)

    Monster Men does resolve the Hugo Strange subplot that was set up in I Am Gotham, but is unimportant to his run overall. The last crossover, The Price or whatever it was called, was penned entirely by Josh Williamson without any writing by King (it was awkwardly slotted halfway through King's extremely divisive Knightmares arc). It does involve characters that King uses in his run, but it ultimately is more of a Heroes in Crisis tie-in than anything of relevance of King's Batman. I'd say it could be skipped without missing anything.

    I really liked the Button, when it came out, but in retrospect it was pretty pointless to even have that series. Practically nothing came of it, all the heroes were still completely blind-sided by Manhattan and Ozmandias, and Batman never picks up the button again.

    So don't worry about skipping it!

    Preview is out, if I have anything I would like to say is that I hope they put more emphasis at times of differentiating the time period, because here we have future Selena, switching to present Bruce, then Past Alfred, and then Back to future Selena. Still though, Clay Mann makes this looks great.

    Wasn't a fan of this run but weirdly bat/cat is one of the upcoming title's I'm most excited for. maybe because it promises to be very different from all the current Batman stories

    I’m kind of in a similar way, I liked the first 50 issues but once they didn’t go through with the wedding and then shooting Nightwing and the death of Alfred story, those last 20 some issues just really weren’t for me.

    But a 12 issue out of continuity story that focuses on the relationship of Catwoman and Batman without the annoying breakup because we know their future in this story works for me.

    Almost up to City of Bane. I. Love. This. Run. Seriously. The amount of levels King worked to give Bruce as much character growth as his Batman. This is what I’ve been missing for so long.

    That's the reason I was so interested in this run; I was pretty tired with Batman at the time (nothing against Scott Snyder, I like his run), and suddenly Tom King comes in and tells the story I wanted to read. Also, visually it's a superb run, sadly with many shift of pencillers in the same arc as the story was headed towards its finale. Editorial interference hurt some parts of the run, and Tom King failed to deliver with some approaches he took of certain characters, but overall, I think it was an amazing run.

    I've been looking forward for Batman/Catwoman for some time now, though I stil haven't decided how I'm going to buy it, maybe I'm going to wait for the spanish edition in single issues or I will go for the US collected volume, but it will certainly take a while for a hardcover or tpb to come out and I don't know if I can wait that long

    I truly hope that King can finish his Batman run the way he wanted without any interference.

    I was a bummed on how long we had to wait, but at least we have Mann on the art as opposed to City of Bane where the art change was a bit jarring.
