After a slow build up, the crazy has arrived. I am loving this Joker.

Fuck DC for capitalizing on the Bat/Cat drama when Tynion is doing an awesome job at portraying them as a functional team while maintaining their own agenda.

The story itself is getting duller. It started as a promising new take, and it's possible it will reach a surprising destination, but at the moment it's pretty much the same old recipe as the New 52 and King's arc. It's done well, and let's be honest, the writing is smoother than King's. But it lacks its intensity, its spiraling madness. It's a million times better than the New 52, though. I'm just tired of reading the same thing over and over.

And Punchline really needs a personality and a voice. She has such potential, why would Tynion waste her on cringe lines in the background of an otherwise good Joker/Batman unrequited romance scene?
