    Bats is kissing Cats in pretty or sexy environment. Constantine is there to harsh the buzz.

    On the final time Constantine tells Bats that he is caught and hooked up to a machine that makes him dream, with the final scenario having Cats die.

    That is the whole issue. This story is so decompressed, if it were a set of tires, you wouldn’t be able to drive 10 feet.

Heh.

    Also, this is the second story this week wheres King’s protagonist is dreaming that his significant other is constantly getting killed. (See internet uproar over Walmart Superman book).

    The art was nice, but the story was slow. Three issues to tell us Bruce is mindtrapped. I feel so jerked around.

I miss Dad & Dan.



Thanks for reading my review.

I'v seen a lot of online reviews that are stunned that King has shown that Batman is afraid of happiness because he's afraid once he achieves it, this happiness will be taken away, so he self-sabotages.

One - That is hardly a profound observation. We all self-sabotage.

Two - That's a writer's choice. Instead of writing a story about a relatively-mentally healthy Batman, writers since Frank Miller have mostly been writing him as a psycho.

The observation that Bats is a control freak and self-sabotaging is hardly new and at this point really tiresome.

Or I could be wrong.
