[World of Bats] Detective Comics #975-981 "Batmen Eternal"

Hello and welcome to the World of Bats, the Batman Book Club!

This week we’ll be finishing another long saga within the history of Batman by taking look at the final arc of the “Gotham Knights” era of Detective Comics, written by James Tynion IV, with art by Alvaro Martinez, Javier Fernandez, Eddy Barrows, and Phil Briones.

Following the tragic death of one of their own, Batman’s team of vigilantes falls apart! With his squad completely shattered, Batman must confront Red Robin about the future of their partnership…if there even is one! Following her deadly actions in their last adventure, Batwoman faces scrutiny from Batman and Red Robin but stands up for her actions. Will Batman allow her to continue bearing his symbol after everything she has done? And will the fallout put these cousins–Bruce Wayne and Kate Kane–at irreconcilable odds with one another?

Way to kill a good idea early, DC…

It was nice while it lasted. Now Detective Comics is just the supplemental Bat-Book again.


The Gotham Knights team was a fun idea and it gave them something to do with those batman adjacent characters when there’s not enough pages in Batman’s solo book. The OMAC and future Tim stuff was interesting and it seems they brought that to a satisfying conclusion.

I thought that the “Trial of Batwoman” was a little cheesy but the scene with Kate and Bruce at the restaurant was nice. It might have been cool to see Batwoman, Azrael, and Batwing take their show on the road
