Looking forward to talking about this story with you all! :batparrot:


This was a great miniseries. I found the story and the art to be compelling pretty much the whole way through.

I don’t love Equilibrium’s motivation, but like Batman said, paraphrased, grief has a way of twisting things. From a certain point of view, and all that. It works well enough for the story.

I definitely get some Dark Knight Returns vibes; older, bulkier Batman that’s lost a step working with a young, female sidekick.

One final thought. Did anyone else get hit in the feels by this panel, or was it just me?
