If you ve ever asked someone to explain quantum physics in Latin while gargling mouthwash, then you ll know how I felt trying to understand what was happening in this book.On the plus side, there is just a murder s row of artists killing it here So there s that.Here s hoping Vol 11 returns to some semblance of coherence Or at least loses the mouthwash. Each single issue is a different nightmare Batman is experiencing Every story is tailored for the artist of that issue, some obviously working better than others It s an interesting concept that gets better as the issues continue and you start to learn what s going on The execution in the beginning was clunky as there didn t seem to be a point Ultimately, I grew to enjoy it but it took getting

without the glasses I know that was kind of the point of the nightmare but I still like to be able to comprehend the art on the page without going cross eyed At a glance at the overall rating for this

when I saw that it was going to be in the Big House way illustrated by committee Theartists names on the cover, theI guess it is a fill in, random volume And this is what it at a glance is, a series of issues on a related topic But it is a topic that Tom King has become known for The dark inner workings of Bruce Wayne s mind So this is the most experimental volume in the series, which I known is a risk with the action oriented Bat community But I say the team pulls it off, in bringing us back to the madness of Bruce that King explores in Volume Two, I Am Suicide A few stories in this volume help us recall the love and occasional happiness and joined commitments Bat sometimes achieves with Cat, but in the end, can being with anyone or doing anything ever make him truly happy So the Knightmares are actually drug induced nightmares, as Batman is being held by Scarecrow These nightmares, one after one, contain his worst fears And because of the dreamscape nature of the approach, this gives all the artists freedom to be differently surreal in the separate volumes, but maybe especially the visual artists So we get horror Gorgeous night terrors No, I don t think this is going to be anyone s favorite volume of the series, and it s not mine, either, but I love the wedding of alt comix with superhero comics, when it works It reveals the depth of King s mind in understanding the depths of darkness in Bruce You may not agree that the darkness is as deep in Batman as King claims, but I am persuaded as I have been by others as well I m honestly disappointed to be saying this because I ve so enjoyed his Batman run and I ve come to view it as one of the few dependably good titles out there at the moment but Volume 10 Knightmares is Tom King s first Bat stinker He s written a coupla average books before, like The War of Jokes and Riddles and the Wedding book, but Knightmares is the first one where I couldn t have cared less about what I was reading Scarecrow and Bane have drugged Batman and he hallucinates a series of disc I m honestly disappointed to be saying this because I ve so enjoyed his Batman run and I ve come to view it as one of the few dependably good

Knightmares is the first one where I couldn t have cared less about what I was reading Scarecrow and Bane have drugged Batman and he hallucinates a series of disconnected, trippy, barely coherent, and generally confusing scenarios He s also still mooning about Catwoman dumping him Ugh It s not just that the Scarecrow drugs Batman with ANOTHER variation of his fear gas trope has been done to death released concurrently to this stretch of King s run was a separate limited Batman series called Kings of Fear that rehashed that very same storyline but it s been done better before and fairly recently in Grant Morrison s Batman run where Batman battles the Lump in RIP, which was farcompelling to read than this meandering treatment was I can t help comparing the two because they re so similar and, as a result, Knightmares suffers from the comparison Bruce Wayne as a kid sees his parents murdered but Batman s there too Professor Pyg is torturing Batman but who s really under that mask Catwoman DIDN T leave Batman at the altar but what s John Constantine doing there I get it, it s a dream knightmare, whatevs The weird n whacky scenes aren t doing anything for me though if this is all they are The only positive about having such a zigzagging narrative approach is the myriad of top artistic talent that contribute pages to this book Jorge Fornes art in Batman 66 blew me away for how similar it was to David Mazzucchelli s style I honestly thought Mazzucchelli had returned to draw Batman for a special one off, particularly as that issue so heavily references Year One I also loved Fornes and Lee Weeks collaboration for the next, near silent issue where Batman s chasing a masked man across the Gotham skyline The art is incredible and I think King was going for a Looney Tunes pastiche in this issue not just with the relentless Roadrunner Wile E Coyote style chasing, or with the Beep Beep at the end I know, Roadrunner says Meep Meep , but also the cameo by Porky Pig, the human bartender version, from King Weeks Batman Elmer Fudd issue Mikel Janin and Yanick Paquette s issues have fantastic art too and I always enjoy seeing Amanda Conner s artwork She draws Lois Lane and Selina Kyle s hen night at the Fortress of Solitude where they get plastered on alien wine and watch robot Superman strippers It s pointless but I adore Conner s character expressions which are never shy of perfect Batman, Volume 10 Knightmares is an artist s book then The main story stalls while the artist s shine boring to read, beautiful to look at I just hope this isn t the beginning

collection While not as strong as the last two volumes it s still good A 3 out of 5 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.

A thoughtful exploration of Batman s fears to set up the long built toward City of Bane This collection of one shots hashighs than lows, especially when it comes to the artwork.
