Valdosta Daily Times sugarcoats a James Tynion Batman story

The Valdosta Daily Times thinks the dreadful scriptwriter Tynion's work on a Batbook titled Deux ex Machina is worth the price of admission:
As noted in previous reviews, if you don't like Batman in a team situation, skip writer James Tynion IV's run on "Batman: Detective Comics."

But, again, Bat-fans who skip it will be missing out.
Given that this is the same writer who's forcing his ideologies on Batman co-creator Bill Finger's other co-creation, Golden Age Green Lantern Alan Scott, that's why we won't be missing anything.
Again, if you don't like Batman in a team setting, or even though the book bears his name and he is the leader but is often absent from the pages and story arc, this "Detective Comics" run from a few years ago will not be everyone's cup of tea.
A team setting is fully acceptable. Why, so is a team-up like the old Brave & the Bold series. It's just the assigned writer who's not.
Still, readers who decide to skip Tynion's run will miss young Bruce Wayne learning illusion and mystic arts with a young Zatanna.
Sorry, still no temptation here. I love Zatanna, but aside from the likelihood the artwork in this new book could be subpar, the writer is such an ideologue, it's not worth providing him with the satisfaction that people are wasting money on his work. Besides, as I've observed and argued for some time now, there's way too much Batman around on the market. It's time already to downplay the whole emphasis on the franchise.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
