For my last week on the job before Jay_Kay takes over, we’ll be looking at the last few issues before the Knightfall story arc.
Our selections for this week are (attempting to stick them in a fairly coherent reading order; sorry if I fail to do so):
-OPTIONAL: Detective Comics #654-656 (Largely irrelevant, but if you’re feeling completionist, Bane and his henchmen cameo at the end of #656, so it’s technically part of the Knightfall lead-in)
-Detective Comics #657-658
It’s a rather eclectic selection, so it’s hard to present good questions, but here’s the old college try:
BATMAN 488-490 AND DETECTIVE COMICS 657-658
1: Are Bane and Azrael living up to your expectations so far?
2: Is Bane’s manipulation of Batman’s existing rogues gallery effective or cheap?
3: How 'bout that costume change for Azrael, huh?
1: What do you think of Bane’s plan? How would you go about taking down Batman?
2: Was Gordon right to disobey Krol, or was more force authorized?
3: Did this issue leave you excited for Knightfall?
I’ve been running these a week, so that would be midnight Eastern on October 7th, but basically it ends whenever Jay_Kay puts up the next one.
