This issue is like being forced to listen to someone you don’t like while they tell you a story but they never get to the point. Also in this situation, it’s clear that this person isn’t failing to get to the point because they’re bad at telling stories or because they’re a bore. Those things may be true but that is not the reason. No, it’s clear this person is just saying a whole lot of nothing to you as an excuse to prolong the time they are around you.
After the last issue where “Bane” killed “Alfred” (“Batman” doesn’t know yet) and “Batman” and “Catwoman” talked about going back to “Gotham”, you’d figure they would… Ya know, do that. Instead, they chill out on a beach talking about “Catwoman” leaving “Batman” at the altar and how they’re both sad about it. “Batman” keeps saying “he’s fine” when he isn’t and the whole thing is tedious and annoying. This person who you don’t like who is telling you this story won’t just tell you “he actually wasn’t fine at all and they were both codependent nutcases so they got back together” even though that obviously is how the story ends.
In the middle of this, they do some training by climbing a mountain and “Batman” throws a “batarang” at “Catwoman”. He throws it all weak and “Catwoman” tells him to throw with his rage at her leaving at the altar. “Batman” completely punks out and just drops the “batarang” in the sand. Then “Batman” finally admits he’s “he actually wasn’t fine at all” and he’s completely dependent on her in a sad, unhealthy way. So because they were both codependent nutcases, so they got back together. Yay?
… The art is great though… Maybe next time there will be a fight or something interesting for the artist to draw. You couldn’t be safer skipping this issue. C-.
