Tom King officially off Batman after #85, gets his own maxi-series. (Which I guess is a 15-issue miniseries.)
An article just for you, CKD.

Just neddling you. Anyone who writes the main Batman title gets overly praised fairly or unfairly. It is just the way it is.

CBR are shills and their tastes are either s*it or five years behind the times.

I disagree. I think Scott Snyder gets the right amount of praise. Most reviews love him, but most reviews also maintained that the "Jim Gordon gets a Batman Mech" storyline sucked.

I've noticed they seem to be very pro-King. They've done a LOT of reporting on this whole "Tom King booted from Batman title", and it's all in King's court.

I like the idea that King is writting a pro-Bruce/Selina story overall. Yes, I know about being fooled into thinking a wedding would take place and it didn't,but the story is not over yet.

Also, thanks to the other media always portraying Bane as a super henchman its hard not to think of him as something else aside from that and being a one trick pony,but Bane is a mastermind breaking Bane psychologically. I give him credit for adding something to broke Batman, briefly considered Ra's heir and was Ubu, then became the son of King Snake after thinking he was Bruce's paternal half-brother and joining the Suicide Squad. That is it though.

How much longer do we have to put up with Ric Grayson?

I am not a fan of King as he forced PTSD into super heroics by pretending a remedial getaway always existed so Wally can commit involuntary manslaughter x 12 and then instead of fixing his mistake he committed he frames two random people and then commits suicide?

Yeah, DC Comics is pretty bad right now. King's responsible for 2 outta 3, and kinda responsible for Ric Grayson, too... although his initial idea for Dick getting shot and developing vertigo (and having Tim take on Nightwing's role while Dick recovered) was pretty okay.

Interesting that Tim would have taken on Nightwing. I always wondered if Tim were to be inspired by Dick that he became Nightwing a sleuthing fan of Robin instead of a successor Robin.

Justice League is a headache with all this alternate reality and dimensions and special forces. I have adjusted to The Green Lantern though. Its only pulling about 46k. Kinda low for Hal post-Rebirth and with Morrison's name.

Everything is supposed to mean something which brings me to ask, why focus on a actor who meets Dr. Manhattan for a yearly cup of coffee and prediction only for his own mother to murder him? I don't get it and don't feel like digging into it. Though he is likely screwing with Wally and responsible for the murders at the PTSD center. Why else would Wally cover up murders and commit suicide without going back and time and stopping himself from the accident?

Because we've already seen what happens when a Flash corrupts the timeline.

If Rob Liefeld were sucked into a black hole, not even his carpet lice would miss him or care.

Hey, Liefeld wrote the worst title DC ever came up with as far as my preferences are concerned, I only thought CKD might want to read the article.

I refuse to miss any opportunity to figuratively sh*t in Rob Liefeld's mouth. If I could do it literally, I absolutely would.

Headline should read, "Functionally-Illiterate Dudebro Who Can Barely Hold A Pencil Thinks He Has Relevant Observations." Like even if his opinion turns out to one day be accurate, who cares? It's Liefeld. The only thing he has to say that I'd personally wanna hear is, "Got hit by a bus. Feeling ".

Kinda mean, maybe, but that guy is a one-man plague.

I hate Jason Todd and Starfire and have a distaste for Arsenal. What does he do? Crammed them a into a comic in a reboot that I did not want.

Feel free to knock Dick Grayson's greatest nemesis Dan Didiot.

I might be incredibly biased, but I think the sex would be much, MUCH better with a 7-foot-tall intergalactic stripper with kitty cat eyes who hates wearing clothes and "learns languages" by tongue-kissing people, vs. a librarian who's mostly been in a wheelchair.

I mean, Babs is fine, too, but c'mon.

Also, it's not like "comic book time" was ever gonna move the story forward enough to see Dick ever settle down and get married to either one, no matter how many times it's teased, so really, who gives a f*ck about "shipping" either way?

I'unno. Seems like a dumb reason to dismiss the seven-foot-tall half-naked stripper. Not that there's any GOOD reason, of course.

Absolutely hated that Gar's mind turned to Terra in Heroes In Crisis...but then, his entire romance with Raven doesn't exist in Rebirth canon, they're just best buddles/almost sibling-like. At least the TV shows still carry a torch for what they had.

Speaking of Heroes In Crisis, Wally West is getting a new limited series dealing with his redemption...and it's written by Scott Lobdell, 'cause s*it.
