Today I clicked on a link supposedly containing the full leaked batman 17 (expecting some nonsense haha! xD ) turns out the guy who posted it wasnt lying, and since i was just so excited I read it straight away! Now, I wont be posting the link AT ALL because I suddenly realized how much effort would've gone into the comic, and if everyone read it for free and off an unofficial link, it would be pretty mean for the hard work the writers put in (hope this makes sense as english isnt my fist language! xD) Any way, here are some early thoughts of the comic (SPOILER FREE!!)
- Overall: It was a pretty good conclusion, there was more than one jaw dropping moment!- including one I think NONE of us saw coming between batman and joker!!! For some reason it felt a bit rushed and short, but thats only my opinion! There are some questions left unanswered at the end- leading into the next issues of course, but most of the things explored in pervious issues are covered. Under the trays you may ask!?!?! Well.. you'll see.. When you first see you'll be really surprised! But shock value was lost a bit near the end.. It was definately a comic that when you put down you would be thinking about for a while (not just a read and drop haha!) , there was a lot of really cool new theories based on the relationship between joker and batman and they are really put to the test! But let me just say this, despite some minor let downs, this was and is THE BEST JOKER STORY EVER TOLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D
Seriously, this conclusion and series for me blew away any other joker story ever told!! Some extremely deep stuff is addressed in this conclusion that has been questioned since the first batman and joker encounter but never EVER has it been discussed in a comic like this did! Seriously, Great job Synder! It is obvious from the conclusion that this batman tale will go down in history as one of -batman and jokers biggest and greatest battles! -
to wrap up, the minor (teny tiny microscopic) let downs are EASILY shrugged off, and this conclusion acts as the fantastic end to a- masterpiece-. I would give this comic and series a 1,000,000/10.
