    July 24, 2013 4:23 am I agree, Batman -- while largely unaffected in the "new 52" -- has struggled nonetheless. The first mistake was dropping Stephanie Brown in favor of restoring Barbara Gordon. By being the lone continuity change, it sticks out like a sore thumb. The Court of Owls was dumb. I can not get over the Joker returning to kill off Batman's assistants -- failing -- somehow causing this giant rift that is obtuse at best, and then the next MONTH they kill off Robin #4 anyway in an unrelated nearly random story that almost seems like an afterthought relative to the 20+ issue Joker series that was priming the death of a Robin. It is one of the worst, most bizarre death sequences in the history of comics. Maybe it isn't the comic book killer that the Death of Superman was, but it certainly estranged my tenous interest in the Batman International series and has tested my relationship with the batbooks. Let's be honest, outside of the Justice League -- which is a really great book to date -- the rest of the new 52 is an absolute mess.
