So now we’re 67 issues into Tom Kings 100 issue run what are people’s thoughts on this? I’ve been flipping back & forth between enjoying it & wishing he’d get the hell on with it!

Take the last issue - there are next to no words in the entire thing & I can honestly say it didn’t progress the story at all. Considering this arc is meant I finish in another two issues, I can’t help but feel that lots of this run so far have simply been filler to get the count up to 100 issues!

So far, I can’t see anything of substance being added to the Batman mythology by the end of this run - which compared to Snyders run is really not standing up well - and once it’s finished we’re just going to be back where we started 100 issues (plus?) ago.

Do I think “Bat” & “Cat” are going to get back together at the end of this? Honestly? At the moment I’m half expecting a Bobby Ewing / Dallas moment where Bruce steps out of the shower and the last 100 issues never bloody happened!

And I can’t say I’d be sad (apart from the wasting of my time).

It may read better in a trade, but as single issues it’s sucking at the moment, in my opinion.

I think it's "ok" while it being a full 100 issue story is great, it also makes it more difficult to really enjoy some single issues since they are being used to flesh out something we don't know the full scope of. Knightmares is basically the worst kind of story telling IMO, where 'it was all a dream'. I get that you want to show some of Batman's mental state but this many issues of it? Really? That just seems like he's short on ideas honestly
