Baturday

Welcome to the second installment of the longest-running column here at Comic Booked: Baturday, in which we discuss all there is to talk about the Dark Knight at the end (or, in this case, beginning) of each and every single month. There were lots of great things that happened to the Caped Crusader and his friends, family, and foes in the second month of the new year. Here are my thoughts and reactions to all things Batman-related in February 2019:

My Pick of the Month for February 2019:

  • DETECTIVE COMICS!!!

So there you have it. Now, before we chat it up in the comments or on social media, here are some of my spoiler-filled thoughts on February’s Batman-related releases. Peter J. Tomasi’s “twist” ending was not only expertly pulled off, but it took away the possibly one bad mark on his entire Batman writing career: the needless death of Dr. Leslie Thompkins. So great job, as usual, Mr. Tomasi, and thanks for not making me upset for more than a couple of months. Gotham’s insistence that Jeremiah is the Joker went from annoying to somewhat intriguing (due to a great performance by the actor) to sorta blah. But the inclusion of the Ventriloquist (albeit for only part of one episode) and the preview of James Gordon Jr. in the form of a fetus made me one happy viewer. That confession sequence in Heroes in Crisis showed us that Wally did provide the hope that Rebirth gave us readers, but we were selfish to ignore the signs. He was utterly broken and lost, completely surrounded by everyone that needed him and never once asked him what he needed. I still hate that he’s dead (even if it’s maybe not completely what it seems), but Tom King did a great job justifying his choice to take away one of my favorite characters who I had been missing for so very long. Just a few hot takes for the month of February. But enough of my jibber jabber. What did you think? I’d love to hear from you. See you in a month, Baturday fans!
