    1. Yep, especially in that last issue with the whole monologue about eyes and all. Tom King really went into some deep romance stuff. Some might even call cheesy to some extent hahah I’m a believer that there’s definitely a graphic novel for everyone, you just have to find the right one. Hopefully some day you’ll find it and it’ll give you hope in the medium! 😀

    1. If it’s just those pages with the crow winged Batman, then it’s Tony S. Daniel’s artwork we’re talking about, and I can assure that his stuff has ALWAYS been stellar. I’ve never been disappointed by his style, it’s sooooo beautiful! If you like the art in the other pictures, like those full-blown pages of batman/catwoman, then I’d recommend checking out my next Batman review. 😉

    1. Thank you, sir! Batman comics are what started my love for comic books/graphic novels too, and he is my all-time favourite hero since the animated series back in my childhood! I’ll probably always share my reviews, even if it’s not everyone who reads them. And when there are folks who do read them or enjoy these, I’m always extremely happy! 😛 Thanks for reading, Paul!

    1. Thanks Tammy! Definitely a double-edged sword on that regard. Some might actually find these risks incomprehensible and hate the whole volume, but I personally loved it. He has taken risks almost as crazy as these in the past and those didn’t work out that well (his earlier volumes, for example).

  1. I’ve been looking forward to your thoughts on this sir and as always it’s a wonderfully insightful review! I think you’re right in that this passes Jokes and Riddles by an inch, a slim inch as that particular story was so good. The Booster Gold arc was a bit on the bonkers side, but (together with his team-up with Superman in Dan Jurgen’s final Action Comics run) it did have me invested in a character I’ve never really been all that interested in.

    But the highlight is undoubtedly “The Best Man”, just a perfectly executed lead-in to the special issue itself. Tom King does a great job of really diving into the tiniest of character nuances in a way that celebrates their history whilst gently adding new layers.

    I do get what you mean about the artwork in #50, in one sense it works but it also jumbles the visuals a little with so many different styles – inevitably (and subjectively) some of it looks better than the rest. My one hope is that King does move things on from the Bat/Cat saga eventually though but I like the way he’s dealing with the fallout so far and how it’s shaping the future of both characters.

    1. Same here. Booster Gold is too rarely used at his full potential. Sort of laughed at that moment where he explains how he could time-travel, fly and have a force-field. I actually thought those were his powers!

      Yep.. It’s really the only downside. Some of the artwork also made no sense within a wedding context. Would’ve been nice if they all have a similar theme going on. Yep, I’ve read other reviews out there about the ending in #50 and a lot of people were disappointed about it. Let’s see what Tom King will do with it all during the second half of his run.
