Batman (2016-) #50 (Batman (2016) (Single Issues) #50) Reviews
Okay, I waited until the day after to review Batman #50 and if you have not read the comic book that was marketed as the wedding event of the year, stop now. There are Spoilers ahead!
Tom King has taken a pretty intimate portrayal over the last 50 books with the Dark Knight and has done some serious soul searching with this character. From self destruction, to suicidal tendencies, to inadequacies, to love. Like it or not, this has been a comic book run that centers a bit more around Bruce Wayne t ...more
Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to witness the culmination of months of storylines with the wedding of the Bat and the Cat. Do I take Batman #50, to have and to hold, to be as good as I’d hoped? I… don’t.
I know, I’m disappointed too. But this bumper-sized wedding issue is unfortunately very underwhelming. Bruce and Selina prepare for their big night on the rooftops (where else to marry but the place they’ve been chasing each other for decades?) and… then there’s the end. In between? ...more
So this was kind of a let down for me. Thanks to DC the ending was sort of spoiled online a day before I got to read it and so I went into it more so just wanting to get through it then being on the edge of my seat like I think I was supposed to see.

Tolik povyku pro takový hovno... Jediná dobrá stránka je ta s Alfredem.
Well, there seems to be a lot of hate for this issue but I enjoyed it. No spoilers from me and I'm not going to go into a detailed analysis of the story. If you are not a fan of Tom King's Batman then this probably isn't for you. That's a shame though because it looks fantastic! In my opinion, it's worth buying just for the many guest artists' different interpretations of Batman and Catwoman. Comics are a visual medium and there's some beautiful artwork in here.
The writing is mostly solid. There ...more
I saw the hype on Twitter about the NYT review and was frustrated at people's reaction. I love what Tom King has done so far and the Wedding takes place over a few issues. It is a good story so far and good stories have conflict and things don't go smoothly, that's what makes them good stories. I am excited to read the next few issues and see where King is taking us.
