To sum it all up..

There are a lot of great stories from Tom King’s Batman run.

Posted November 2, 2017 by



Batman and Catwoman enters Khadym… to tell Talia al Ghul that they’re getting married? Or is there another reason why the Bat and the Cat entered the city of Khadym? Either way, we’re in for a treat! No one enters Khadym and expects to exits alive. This new thrilling adventure will test their soon to be vows, “till death do us part.”

There are a lot of great stories from Tom King’s Batman run. Most books/chapters are hard to gauge because it is better appreciated being read as a complete story. The same can be said for BATMAN #34. On its own, it had a lousy story and it felt like lazy writing from Tom. But it wouldn’t be surprising if later on, Tom would connect this lazy story to the bigger picture.

I like how Tom King made the story clearer in this issue. The Bat and the Cat’s visit to Khadym is more complicated than what it seems. I am amazed at how Tom King was able to connect his previous stories to this current story arc. But then again, dialogues in this book are lazy. It can easily be read under five minutes.

Joëlle Jones‘ interior art and Jordie Bellaire‘s colors are still amazing. Although the panel transitions could use a little improvement. Other than those, I am still looking forward to what Tom King has in store for his readers. He pulls off the craziest twists in story-telling. Like I said, I wouldn’t be surprised if Tom is able to connect this story to a bigger picture.
