Batman #35

Colorist: Jordie Bellaire
Publisher: DC Comics

This arc by Tom King has been pretty good so far, as it is not simply just two characters fighting because it looks cool or just fighting for fighting sakes. In the last issue it was determined that Catwoman was actually trying to get Holly back after she had run away. This issue was quite good but the great dialogue is really what stands out.

One of mine and many peoples' problems with Tom King's writing is the repetition of dialogue that he uses. Sometimes repetition of dialogue can be used in a cool way to elevate books, but I feel that as it is becoming more and more popular, it instead sometimes comes across as a tactic to feel pages.The fact that the dialogue between Dick and Damian and Selina and Talia is so good is what makes this issue to be a satisfying conclusion. The voices of the characters are so spot on, that it makes the issue a really enjoyable read.

In conclusion this is a solid ending to this short arc, and also does give me hope in seeing that Tom King will handle this engagement and marriage well. Next is Batman, Selina, Superman and Lois interacting which should be really intriguing to see.
