    I don't like the shoulder things. If it was a normal cape id be happier.

    I like that it has some colour, but I don't care for the cape attachment. The dome-shaped cowl is an interesting change, but I wouldn't want every artist to draw it that way since it takes away the expressiveness of the cowl.

    To be honest, though, this suit will probably be gone come July.

    At first glance i liked it,. but after looking at it more i love/hate it. I hate the purple in the cape,. and the yellow on the belt seems alittle odd. However int he epilogue the belt was completely yellow,. im curious how other artists will be depicting this new suit on other titles.

    Yeah Paquette ignored the dome look as well in his part of #50.


    I like that Capullo ditched some of the piping from Lee's design, but I don't like the purple cape lining at all. The yellow on the bat and belt I could get used to. The cape being attached to his shoulders is odd.

    Now Didio wants to pinpoint Joker's identity.

    I hate him, and everything he's done at DC.

    I'm very much looking forward to the 3 new Batman titles, especially Detective Comics! The new suit is fine by me.

    Saw that and laughed so hard.
    This is exactly the stuff why the reboot failed.
    Dc and the writers forget that they are NOT the ones who make the canon...its the fans that tell what is canon and what not.

    And didio is not strong enough in terms of writing to pinpoint the joker in any kind of way.
    Not even the best writer can do this at that point.

    If 'Rebirth' is going to do away with some of the bad characterizations Snyder has brought in the last few years, I'm all for it. I really enjoyed (mostly) the Court of Owls story, but everything started to go downhill with 'Zero Year'.

    I really didn't like his take on Jim Gordon. He always seemed 'off', and then when he went and turned him into Batman it was clear he had no concept of the Jim Gordon character. (Plus, doing a 'someone else is Batman' story so recent to them doing 'Dick Grayson is Batman' story was annoying).

    I mean, I'm not happy to hear they are going to try and do ANOTHER Joker origin story, but this one, like the others, will probably be retconned out of existence within months of it being clear that it is the failure it is destined to be.

    I've liked the uniform a couple of times, but it really seems to depend on the artist for me. I liked it a lot here, for instance. I don't like how Capullo draws it.

    I realized something while reading this issue: snyder and Capullo are FINALLY of batman! I'm so glad! This issue was as boring as most of snyder's work.

    DKIII continues to be amazing. And the mini comic was much better with Miller's art than if Jim Lee had done it.

    yeah, issue 4 was incredible. Although they keep making Kal a tool. It's consistent with his DK characterization.

    I really liked the issue, it was a nice "goodbye" issue.
    Having it be a bit calmer and without too much action, was a cool idea.

    It also gives the new writer a good base to make his own mark on batman.
    There are some nice panels in there that really look spectacular and show a perfect picture of Gotham city.

    Yeah, it sucks a lot. Scott is being replaced by another great writer though.

    How did you stick with a book you find boring and celebrate the end of for over 50 issues? That's like 150 bucks at least.

    In france, we have each month a book that includes: batman/tec/robin/grayson/batgirl for less than 6 bucks. So I read everything.

    I loved Snyder's run but am eager to see someone else take the reigns of the flagship title.

    That said... WILL Batman still be his flagship title or will it stick with Snyder over in All-Star?

    That was a solid last issue, definitely good close to a 5 year run. The next writer on Batman has big shoes to fill....

    I think Batman will be the main title. But isn't All-Star more villain focused?

    I think I'm in the minority in that I didn't really like Snyder's run much, aside from Court of Owls and Zero Year. I did however loved Batman Eternal, and Batman and Robin Eternal.
