  1. Last issue was pretty damn convoluted. Tomasi had to mix Death of the Family, AND Batman INC, AND his own story in a short amount of time. Also, I hope Gleason is doing the art in this issue but I have a bad feeling he isn’t.

  2. This is without a doubt my favorite bat-title. The cover is sick. I love how dark and twisted the stories are.

    • I used to not be a fan of Tomasi, but I have really liked this book, so I guess I am know a fan. Gleason is great, he really is. And Damian is awesome.

  3. I would have enjoyed this so much more if the zombies had turned out to be real. Batman needs more clashes with the supernatural. It’s part of who he is as a character, going back to the vampires he fought in the 1940s. As it was, this issue was a big disappointment. The pages not drawn by Gleason were horrible. And I did not want to see another tie-in with Scott Snyder’s storyline. He burned me out with that in his “Court of Owls” saga. This book is going down hill fast!

    • Court of Owls didnt really need to tie-in but “Death of the Family” definitely has to, it’s specifically about Joker attacking the other members of the Bat-family.

    • Batman also fought Vampires a few months ago in ‘I, Vampire’. I think it was issues #5 and #6. Great story.

      It will be hard to keep certain Bat Titles that take place in current continuity out of big crossovers. Although two that don’t usually are Batwoman and Batman Incorporated. If you don’t like crossovers you might like those.

  4. I liked the art but there really wasnt much story going on. It feels like both #13 and #14 could’ve been told in one issue and maybe something a little more connected to the plot going on in batman #14 could’ve been shown here.

    Either way, it was enjoyable.

  5. I love this issue. Again it should have been listed as an official Death of the Family tie in. They are probably losing out on sales by not listing it as such as some will just buy the official tie in issues. The Joker had a huge impact in this story. Oh, and I LOVED the last page.

  6. Art’s bad when Gleason’s not doing it.
