It seems like forever since I reviewed a new comic, much less read a new batman comic. It seems like I only show up in Gotham when something big is happening. However, this issue caught my eye because it's an Amanda Conner one. The preview pages had the feeling that Tom King was giving her a script that suited her talents and were much like the work that she and her husband Jimmy Palmiotti have come to be known for. While I like the creators behind this issue, I really dislike the way Batman has been treated in recent years.
I am old enough to remember Marv Wolfman and George Pérez's New Teen Titans, and one of the things I remember was at the wedding of Donna Troy, several women were talking about all of the men drooling over Starfire, and remarking out how they wanted to hate her, but couldn't because she's so darn nice. That's how I remember Starfire, which what made me so disappointed in DC's treatment of her over the years, culminating in her depiction in Red Hood and the Outlaws as "Nympho From Another Planet."
