Welcome back, sorry that I have missed a few, but we are back to reviewing comics every day! Today, Seppin is going to be reviewing Batman #66 written by Tom King and art by Jorge Fornes
So Tom King’s Batman run has started to slow down in my opinion. I really loved how he started his run on Batman and I know its controversial, but I even liked how he ended the wedding. However, the last few issues have not caught me as much as The War of Jokes and Riddles or I am Suicide. The last two stories have felt important because of Bruce’s emotional trauma, but I can’t help but desire more. I just wish that we could get a little more character and a little more information about Bane.
Nevertheless, I don’t mind this issue. It’s another one of Tom King’s cool side stories while Bruce is lost in his own mind recently. This time we hardly get any Batman and instead get an intense meeting between Catwoman and The Question. I love that the Question is back in the DC’s continuity and I have been in love with the current Catwoman run so I liked this story. But again I couldn’t help but want Bruce to appear and maybe ask the questions or maybe have him escape. And I know why I want this. This is not a story that should be read issue-by-issue, I theorize that this story would be amazing if you read it all at once so that it flows better. The art’s good and that’s it. Not incredible, but by no means bad. I just wish we would get a little more. Each issue feels like a tiny side plot and I just want to see some progress.
Overall, I liked it, but I think that we can get better from Tom King.
(How good is the story? Does it stand up to others?)
(Does it tell the story? Does it work well with the character?)
(Does this story need to be told? Is it helping the Character?)
(Is the character represented well? Does the writer understand the character?)
Total: 13 / 20
