Batman (2016-) #50 (Batman (2016) (Single Issues) #50) Reviews
I woke up to spoilers for this from the New York Times (NOT cool, NYT). Actual rating not reflecting comic; going by what the NYT said I'm disappointed, but I'd be lying if I said I was surprised.
You are invited to the wedding of the Cat and the Bat
There are a bunch of guest artist and writers with panels. It lives up to the build up to issue #50.
This issue should be renamed "Batman : How not to write an arc 101". Contrary to most people, I'm not disappointed the wedding didn't happen. DC stands for Divine Cowards after all. It's no surprise they refused to change their main title's dynamic. The recipe's worked for ages, do not try and shake things up, god forbid! Even though I had a tiny bit of hope, it's them going for it that would have been surprising. Therefore, the wedding not happening left me indifferent.

The two highlights of this issue:
1. “And you were another man asserting your will. Trying to lord over a world you didn’t understand.” Some great tea right here.
2. Alfred sitting down next to Bruce and hugging him after delivering a sass attack.
All told, I wasn’t impressed. It ended just like I expected it to and I heartily object to the “happy”thing. I am so ready move on and get passed the drama that NYT article caused.
Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to witness the culmination of months of storylines with the wedding of the Bat and the Cat. Do I take Batman #50, to have and to hold, to be as good as I’d hoped? I… don’t.
I know, I’m disappointed too. But this bumper-sized wedding issue is unfortunately very underwhelming. Bruce and Selina prepare for their big night on the rooftops (where else to marry but the place they’ve been chasing each other for decades?) and… then there’s the end. In between? ...more
Will I stop reading this series?
This was a really weak explanation for a tired and old twist.
I expect more from Tom King.
Okay, I waited until the day after to review Batman #50 and if you have not read the comic book that was marketed as the wedding event of the year, stop now. There are Spoilers ahead!
Tom King has taken a pretty intimate portrayal over the last 50 books with the Dark Knight and has done some serious soul searching with this character. From self destruction, to suicidal tendencies, to inadequacies, to love. Like it or not, this has been a comic book run that centers a bit more around Bruce Wayne t ...more
