Batman, Volume 10 Review

    Not a lot of thoughts about this arc other than it was once again solid Tom King Batman stuff and I really enjoyed it, and all the different artists on each issue absolutely knocked it out of the park. Can't wait to see what's coming next.

    Knightmares is a bunch of short stories all coming together. This is Batman going through various nightmares. Some of his worst fears, including the loss of Salina, his kid, facing off against a old villain, and more. The fears and problems range from worldwide treats to personal demons that he hasn't gotten over yet or fully accept. While this volume various in quality it's still following something I really enjoy. The mental breakdown of Bruce is both interesting and sad. Never has Bruce been Knightmares is a bunch of short stories all coming together. This is Batman going through various nightmares. Some of his worst fears, including the loss of Salina, his kid, facing off against a old villain, and more. The fears and problems range from worldwide treats to personal demons that he hasn't gotten over yet or fully accept. While this volume various in quality it's still following something I really enjoy. The mental breakdown of Bruce is both interesting and sad. Never has Bruce been shown in this way that he's losing himself. To me it makes him most relatable. Especially the story with bachelor part. The ending leads to something exciting as well. Not every story works for me though, especially the joker one in here, felt kind of lame. Overall a solid collection. While not as strong as the last two volumes it's still good. A 3 out of 5.

    ”You let him get the knife.You traded the blood for the knife.Now he has the knife.All you have is the blood.” King and Co. swing for the fences with the most experimental arc yet, though the anthological nature of the story, mixed with the whiplash-inducing changes in tone and style, doesn’t always make for the smoothest reading experience.

    [Read in single issues]Confusing to read as it's coming out but as a trade, it comes together beautifully.

    Each issue is a separate journey into Batman's mind. It's okay but everything comes across like an "imaginary story" although there is a deeper meaning to each story. Well done but these type of stories have just never interested me a whole lot. I'll be happier when Batman wakes up.

    Read as single issues.I'm realizing that skipping The Button arc has made this even more confusing than it already was. Regardless, I continue to be less and less impressed with King and look forward to the day in the near future where Batman is given to a new writer. Finally.

    Read the single issues. A brilliant descent into the Dark Knight's mind.

    Another knockout arc from King and a troupe of impossibly good artists. I really enjoyed the "Knightmare" issues - so trippy, so fun. I always look forward to reading this title.

    Taken together I think Batman vol 10 Knightmares is strong. Some of the issues stand on their own, like 62 which is the meat locker nightmare. Others like 67 which is the primarily silent issue are much better as part of the whole.I think whether or not someone likes this relies on a few things. One is that much as I like the story it’s indulgent to the format. It’s excessive, compare it to Grant Morrison’s issues where Bruce is trapped and need to fight his way out. Different take from a. Diffe Taken together I think Batman vol 10 Knightmares is strong. Some of the issues stand on their own, like 62 which is the meat locker nightmare.

One is that much as I like the story it’s indulgent to the format. It’s excessive, compare it to Grant Morrison’s issues where Bruce is trapped and need to fight his way out. Different take from a. Different run but those only took two issues. But here’s the thing. I really like these kinds of storylines and it’s a different take and different run. This story is trying to do something different and it may be excessive depending on your definition but it’s effective, at least for me.The second thing is whether or not you get a kick out of references smuggled into the comics in the form of lines, costumes, situations, flashbacks, etc. I happen to love. Not saying it’s subtle, the comic is very transparent about its love for the Bat and it’s something I appreciate but others may not be as charmed as I am.The third thing is the use of classic literature and poetry in the text to make a point. I like this approach but I also like the approach where a text speaks for itself and that doesn’t always happen here.But besides those things you’ve got stellar art. Writing that may not always have the best or right pace but is very clearly passionate and trying to do something. And a wacky storyline that gives you a lot of different flavors.I liked a lot of those flavors.4 stars.

    A compilation of short stories with the framing narrative of being dreams. Quality is a bit mixed on these but the ones that work are Tom King at his best: emotional, subtle, poetic, understated but ultimately deeply moving. I loved it.

    Overall, a very disjointed collection/arc, and one of my least favorite installments of the series. Especially frustrated by the rehash of Bat and Cat. You're not doing anything to make "The Wedding " volume sit any better.
