    Default BATMAN #32 Preview/Discussion/SPOILERS (Zero Year: Final Act)

    The penultimate issue of ZERO YEAR is here! Batman gets one step closer to the endgame with The Riddler as the final chapter of ZERO YEAR: SAVAGE CITY draws closer to its stunning finale!

    Full article here.


    Almost the end. As much as I want to see Batman back to present, Zero Year has been a great ride. I really enjoy young Bruce and hope DC will make limited series/one shots/annuals featuring young Bruce

    Ha, that Riddler robot is pretty great. So is Bruce throwin hunneds at a ukulele bearing hobo and Gordon leading a crack team through sewer filth by his glorious and exposed red beard. Capullo and FCO have truly achieved all time legend status with this arc.

    Definitely - they could've continued the training flashbacks for longer and I'm loving the weird new punk Bruce kid we're seeing.

    That said, I suspect after a brief spell in the Eternal status-quo Snyder will be jumping into the far future pretty quickly from here...so will likely be another writer if any.

    Snyder's entire run has been absolutely brilliant but even more so, this arc has been nothing short of phenomenal. The writing, the colors, the artwork, just about everything has been terrific. I can hardly wait for this entire Zero Year to be collected. I think that will show just how amazing this run has been.

    It looks amazing, as usual. Really loving this arc.

    I'm not a big fan of this story, which is ironic. This is the origin of the offbeat Morrison era Batman that is less brooding and more adventurous and surreal at times. Snyder wrote a new origin for 'that' Batman. I have plenty of reasons I don't like it, but I can't call them bad comics.

    Looks awesome. I think this has been the best arc yet from Synder's entire run
    Action Comics, Aquaman, Batman, Batman/Superman, Green Lantern, Justice League, The Multiversity, Superman, Superman Unchained

    There's like ten other titles, and at least two of them are, in my mind, anyway, better books. Possibly three.

    (It's Batman '66, Tomasi's Batman and Robin, and the current Francis Manapul/Brian Buccellato Detective Comics "Icarus" story.)

    Detective and Batman Beyond are the best of the bunch, easy.

    Nothing's better than the Snyder/Capullo Batbook. Tec could get to that level if it keeps it up, but no way is B&R even close in my eyes.


    Bat 66 isn't my cup of tea, either.


    Can't wait to read this issue! Looks fantastic (as expected).

    We couldn't disagree more! But we've gotta offer alternatives to anyone who suggests that one Batman title in particular is somehow the only one, and the things they don't like about it mean "get rid of the writer" as opposed to just "read a different Batman book".

    Batman is a solid book. Looking back on the whole of it, the only thing that actually derailed it for me was DOTF. Owls might have built a little fatigue, but generally speaking I love the over-the-top tone of Owls, the creativity on display with all the historical Talons, Thirteenth floor stuff, even the fakeroo non-committal "brother?" ending. The Harper issues are decent. The Clayface issues were great. Zero Year has been tons of fun (even if it too has a little fatigue). I think fatigue is natural for 12-part storylines - although Black Glove did avoid that in two ways; 1. It had agency because it was set "present day" and 2. Split into three parts, third being the mastermind play. Zero Year is doing that too, smartly ... but being set in the past ties a bit of an anchor to it. Eager to see what the next year of this title is all about.

    It is pretty good. So much pop color. I'm eager for the storyline to end, but it's nice seeing a Secret Origin of the Riddler on this scale. I couldn't help but realize this issue, that the fact that he's "Used" the Red Hood Gang, Doctor Death, and Pamela Isley's chemicals is really not all that different from Hush, where he also "uses all the other villains" like a mastermind.

    But thankfully, Zero Year actually ends with an neon Egyptian themed death-trap - always a far superior way to climax a Riddler story.

    FCO Plascencia is the star of this issue.

    I really kind of liked how it all came back to the same place where both Batman and Riddler meet originally, before they even became who they are now. Very nice how it all comes back to it in that way.
