    A lot of people die in the Bat-verse, both henchpeople and normals...

    Oh hey, Penguin's Henchgirls are re-canonized! And they're killers.

    All I can say having read this issue is why would go into law enforcement in Gotham as it seems like something of a Suicide mission.

    Bruce's plan to send all those trigger-happy goons to the same place seems so poorly thought out, I really don't understand it. I mean he basically inadvertently masterminded the deaths of like 200 people apparently.

    I expect no less from Tom King's Batman, honestly.

    Clock King sent them not Bruce, he’s the one who has been writing the “notes” hence the obsession with time

    Not gonna lie, I LOVED that reveal. I actually laughed out loud with surprise and joy.
    Theorising that it could travel within its own timeline, DC stepped into the Crisis accelerator and vanished. DC awoke to find itself trapped in the past, facing mirror images that were not its own, and driven by editorial to change history *for the better* *to be more cohesive* *Silver Age nostalgia* *for the sake of it*. And so DC finds itself leaping from Crisis to Crisis, striving to put right what once went wrong, and hoping each time that the next leap will be to a perfect DC Universe…

    I've got to say, I don't think I've seen so many people killed in the first 3 to 4 pages of comic before.

    I imagine Tom King has just set some sort of Guinness World Record.

    The dialogue for Nuri Espinoza aka Agent Pottymouth is illegible, nobody talks like that. The highlight was the return of a classic yet underrated Batman villain, who needs to be showcased more in the future.
