I must admit that this run is absolutely incredible, all five issues so far hit it out of the park. In this volume Mr. King continues to explore Batman and Catwoman’s complex relationship through words and deeds (read: action). This is a very humane book, even though the hero and sometimes heroine spend a fair amount of time beating on the baddies. I loved the spin this volume put on the banal things one has to do when remarrying (meet the ex, talk to the kids, tell friends, etc.), only that Bruce Wayne doesn’t do anything “simple” and Selina Kyle is anything but “banal”.

Tom King is quickly becoming one of my favorite comic book writers working today. The story is easy to follow, exciting, and the art work is solid, making the whole cast looking remarkable throughout. There is a stylistic break during the Swamp Thing story, but it fits very well and I didn’t mind it. Tom King is making his own Batman, taking advantage of the character’s history, weaknesses, flaws and, of course, his strength. He handles Bane very well, making him a villain which resides on the same side of the coin of the hero he is fighting. Mr. King enjoys elevating Batman…
The art of this book is fantastic, absolutely gorgeous and moves the story forward in leap and bounds.
