I came to an obvious realization while reading this issue that Zero Year has literally taken a year to complete. It was a literal year. I know a lot of people who are ready for this year to be over. They say it’s been going on for too long. But really when you look at it, Zero Year was brilliantly written as long form and short form storytelling. We’re given stories within stories within stories here and we act like its passé. We’ve been given action, drama, explosions, and we pretend like it’s boring. We’re complaining that a story feels “never-ending” when we’re reading a series that has been in print since 1941. It’s asinine.

That little rant aside, Batman #32 was a great read. It was flashy and exciting, subtle and dynamic. It’s the kind of comic Batman should be in. This couldn’t be done without an amazing team. Snyder, Capullo, Miki, and Plascencia are an unstoppable wrecking ball. They could make a plain white room interesting.

From the beginning of the New 52, Batman has been a top notch, fireball of a comic. It’s been passionate, lively, and insular all at once. It’s been everything I’ve wanted out of a Batman comic and more. That hasn’t changed in 32 issues.
