    Nothing says "realistic Batman" like getting beat up and your identity exposed in the first few pages by black (?) Leslie Thompkins...

    To be fair, incompetent Batman is probably the second most realistic Batman, behind only dead Batman.

    Well, it is a "BLACK LABEL" title?

    DR. THOMPKINS?!

    The youth, not the black. Why do they always make her young?

    Okay so she's not that young...

    Compared to New 52 Leslie, this seems like an okay compromise. She's obviously older and wiser than Bruce here if not as old as Alfred in that one panel of him.

    Funny enough, the hardcover has been listed on Amazon (UK) for months. All I need is Andrea Sorrentino. Sold.
    Just. Be. Nice.

    It gave me Netflix DD vibes. It's a decent issue with twice the normal amount of pages. It also has some fun Batman Villian reimaginings. If you like rookie Batman in a more grounded style, this is for you.

    Picked this up because I was looking for something new to read and Sorrentino will at least get my eyes on it. Liked it. Has a very movie feel to it. Halfway through I was wondering if this takes place in the same universe as the new movie. Some of the characters even look like they were drawn that way. Sorrentino could draw the phone book and I would buy it. And, yes, incompetent Batman is the most predictable route in the world but that at least keeps it grounded. I also like the fact that we're three years into his career and he's still has no Batmobile. Ditto the zip lines and motorcycles he leaves all over the city. I would estimate Leslie at being around 50. Though I can see why some would think she's younger. I like the new cop and the fact that they're not just rehashing Montoya or Harvey. It's obvious that something happened to Gordon in this universe. It will be interesting to see what.

    This was absolutely top notch, if this is a sort of movie tie in and the movie is even half as good it just might be the best Batman movie ever.

    Agreed.

    The moment that took my breath away and sold me completely that this was going to be really special was the nature of Bruce’s signature. For so many reasons.

    I've been spoiled the last few days. I read batman nine lives for the first time and then this.. Talk about a good time!! I almost don't want to read anything for a bit because I don't want to go back to d.c current yawn.
