Awww.
Well, I'm disappointed. I mean, I was really hoping that that ending wouldn't happen, but it went down the way that I think everyone expected it to go down. (view spoiler)

On page two of this book Green Lantern commits suicide by power ring and blows his own head off. Wow - top that for a wedding toast! I knew a Batman wedding was never going to be normal but I don’t think anybody expected that!

As good as the lead-in books to Batman and Catwoman’s wedding have been, the actual event itself is… underwhelming. Like The War of Jokes and Riddles, this is unfortunately one of my least favourite books in Tom King’s Batman run. And I’m not saying that because one of the

A totally out of character Booster Gold gives Batman a wedding present by saving his parents setting up a Bat version of Flashpoint where everything is WAY worse. I had a hard time getting past the fact that Booster would never muck with time that way. Maybe Booster and Beetle would back in their wacky JLI days, but the Geoff Johns and Dan Jurgens penned versions of Booster over the last 15 years? No way. He secretly corrects time. Hell, at the same time these issues were coming out Booster was ...more

Things I learned from reading this volume of Batman:

-If Booster Gold wants to give you a wedding present, don’t make eye contact, run away as fast as you can, and notify your local authorities (you might also consider notifying DC Comics editors, reminding them that Booster Gold is just a complete and total douche in tights, and suggesting they ban writers from using him in anything other than a Lobo team-up book henceforth)

-Tom King prizes characterization over storytelling logic; he writes a

Oh man. This is impossible to talk about without spoiling everything, so I won’t. But this was phenomenal and beautiful and so emotional and gut-wrenching, and I love these characters, I love Tom King and this was just... ahhh. So good.

--You can't really talk about this book without SPOILERS, so I am going to be better than DC and actually warn you of the SPOILERS that are incoming.--

Wow, what a clustertruck, DC. You write one of the biggest events (or non-events, as it turned out to be) of the year, and then you purposefully spoil it for everyone before it is released because of sales figures or some such nonsense.

This volume is really hard to review. It had some fun moments but, in the end, it all turned out to be pointless

Well we're at the half way mark. I have to finally say it after 7 full volumes...King has probably done my favorite Batman run of all time so far.

This is basically all leading up to Batman's big wedding day. We start with Booster Gold trying to give Batman a gift. As his usual self, he fucks up big time as always. Then we have Joker being very upset someone is getting married so he starts murdering people to get the Bat's attention. In comes Batman and then Catwoman. Then last arc is, well, the

And the “Wedding”…
Made my heart hurt.
I feel like the parent who tells their kids “I’m not angry, I’m just disappointed.” And it’s true, I’m not so much angry at the turnout for issue 50 (it was spoiled for me ahead of time) as I am wondering what the point of it all was. They had several guests artists, and all this promotional stuff, and like 2 years of build up to this (longer if you’ve been with BatCat since the beginning), and for

There's no doubt Tom King is a talented writer, and this volume is full of interesting ideas. The short scene with the Joker waiting for the arrival of his wedding invitation is excellent and I think perfectly nails what makes the Joker so terrifying. Also loved the conversation between Bruce and Alfred. It's great. And the issue with all the guest artists is captivating, and I even dug the gooey "your eyes" stuff.

But perhaps my biggest gripe about this run (which I'm very lukewarm on overall) i

A most beautiful and interesting end to comics longest courtship.

World: The art for this series been fantastic, it sets the tone so well and the panels speak so much more than the dialog that accompany it, this creative team just knows how to compliment each other (like Capullo and Snyder). The characters are beautiful, full of character and personality and as I said, the silences speak louder than words because the art is so good. Then there is the huge list of different artists that came and c

You can find my review on my blog by clicking here.

The moment has come. Marking the halfway mark in Tom King’s legacy as a Batman writer, he brings on some of the most riskiest moves ever pulled by a writer, but also reveals the big (or maybe not so big) wedding between Batman and Catwoman. While this run has been bumpy, it has always been a progressive improvement with which volume. His style is easy to identify, especially with his way of approaching character development, but also his needs i

[Read as single issues]

At last - Batman and Catwoman are going to tie the knot. Or, so they think. Before they can finally walk down the aisle, they have one final set of hurdles to overcome, including an ill-fated wedding present from Booster Gold, and the Joker, who has a proposal of his own. But even if they can survive all of this, when the fated hour arrives, will Bruce and Selina go through with it? Can Batman find love and happiness, or was the Bat/Cat romance doomed to fail from the star

“Can Batman ever be truly happy?”

This is a question that has long been asked throughout the various media of the character’s history. Given how tragedy has been a defining element of Bruce Wayne, going back to the death of his parents, throwing a bit of happiness into his life might mark the end of his vigilante alter-ego, which is what exactly happened at the end of The Dark Knight Rises. When it comes to comics, especially superhero titles, these characters will forever have adventures and Bat

I received this from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Multiple ratings would be appropriate for this one.

The first part with a suicidal Green Lantern and Booster Gold was just weird and I really had no idea what was going on. Two stars.

The second part was better, and starred Catwoman and the Joker. During a fight they mortally wound each other and simply talk to each other while bleeding out. The dialogue was very good. Five stars.

The third part was Batman and Catwoman getting set fo

My new favorite Batman writer does not one but two Alan Moore homage stories leading up to the big wedding and knocks them out of the park. The wedding issue itself with its telegraphed ending and numerous pin-ups shoehorned into the narrative was a disappointment, though the twist in the kicker was good and left me eager for the next volume.

I must admit to being disturbed by the sequence of Joker shooting black people in a church with his Dylan Roof haircut. I don't know if it was intentional,

Ah, time travel tropes. Booster Gold and his AI Skeets travel back in time to spare Bruce Wayne's parents from being murdered, to Set Right What Once Was Wrong as a gift to Batman for his upcoming wedding. But Booster discovers the initial change has created a World Half Full scenario in the future that resolves itself rather tragically (playing off alternate realities). Also, a dash of fatalism to spice everything up.

Meanwhile, the Joker wants an invitation to Batman's wedding. Actually, Joker

The lead-up to this was so great that the actual "wedding" can't help but fall short by comparison. Three issues devoted to a Booster Gold-Flashpoint kind of timeline, where Bruce's parents weren't killed, yet everything still goes to hell in Gotham. Then two issues of the Joker blathering on about how he's going to make it without Batman. And then the wedding issue itself (already somewhat ruined by its inclusion in The Wedding Album collection, which was released before all of this). I like To ...more

Okay. I took a few days, talked to a few people, and lost my sh*t on some Subway Batman fanatic employee, but I am finally ready to make a review other than...

"WHAT THE F**K!!!!"

--Fair warning I hint at what happens in this volume but don't explicitly say what occurred---

Tom King wasn't nailing it out of the park with Batman for me like he has with others. He's good I'll give him that but his stories are more humor filled and more of a character study compared to earlier Batman comics which I en

Love this!! The booster gold arc was awesome, the joker arc was initially solid but then finished with a bang. I did find the #50 a little distracting with the different artists but overall really enjoy Kings run.

And with the wedding issue, my opinion that Tom King is an overhyped pretentious average creator is solidified.

I wish him no ill. Every now and then he has a story that’s pretty solid.

A lot of this wedding has been boring, chopped up, or long meaningless monologues to fill up the pages. The tie ins were boring too.

The final wedding issue itself pretends to be a celebration of all of Batman and catwomans past complete with meaningless symmetry scenes going through the mechanics of a wedding inter

[includes review for Vol. 7 and Prelude to the wedding books & Catwoman #1]

I was hell of a lot disappointed with this one . The gift story line involving Booster gold had some many time paradox errors that it gave me a headache and I just couldn't swallow that story . But in reality this book is all about the Wedding and while we knew King would pull something like this , we wanted to know the reason and the reason were very very very underwhelming. Heck the reasons weren't even

An ambivalent trade. Five good issues and a disappointing one; the famous wedding...

Warning- A bit of spoiler between the lines.

A good 3-parter to start with, Booster Gold with a stupid wedding present with consequences. It starts with a surprising “Bang” and then King totally masters the plot and the narration to rewrite history time and again.

Another good 2-parter with Joker, funnily crazy or crazily funny depending on your pov. A good dialogue between Catwoman and the Joker that heavily f

How does Tom King approach the Bat-wedding? With an unusual spin, of course. He takes traditional wedding tropes, and twists them in crazy ways.

The Gift (#45-47). What a bizarre story! Booster Gold decides to give Bruce Wayne a gift on his wedding ... by saving his parents. I mean, is Booster really stupid enough not to understand that such a gift would almost certainly paradox the marriage he was making a gift for. Maybe? The result is a somewhat typical dark future that's still quite interesti
