    When a Baaaaat loves a (Cat)woman… ! The wedding’s right around the corner but there’s more adventures to be had first! Batman, Volume 6: Bride or Burglar? collects four stories of differing length. And, as usual, Tom King’s done it again, producing yet another corking Batman book! The opening issue highlights how insane Bruce Wayne/Batman is, just in concept, when Bruce encounters a wealthy young boy, accompanied by his own butler, whose...

    I knew after the last volume it would be hard to top it. This isn't as good but honestly? That's okay. So this has three parts. Super Friends part 3-4 (Now it's Bruce and Diana's turn to be besties) as they fight for over 20+ years together against a endless horde of monsters while Selina tries to free them. Then we have a Poison Ivy story, which I'm going to be honest here, has never been one of my favorite characters. I get WHY people Love her,...

    I received this from Edelweiss and DC Comics in exchange for an honest review.Another good volume in Tom King's Batman run. I'm really enjoying how we are seeing deep into the psyche of not only Batman, but into the people around him, villains and heroes alike. I'm not going to say any more, because I don't want to spoil anything, but I've also enjoyed the ties back to previous storylines and obscure plot points.

    Wow. World: The art is fantastic. King is an artist's writer, he let's the art tell the story and allows this mediums strengths to support the tale. The quiet moments with no dialog, the beautiful panels, the emotions the nods are all so beautiful. The world building is also solid, using the pieces that he's been building since Rebirth and also the history of the relationship between Bat and Cat it's perfect. The 2 issue arc with Diana is also wo...

    A wonderful collection of story arcs that focuses heavily on the relationship between Batman and Catwoman. I loved how it was explored with so much depth and so indirectly. As complicated as these two have had it between each other throughout their whole legacy, it is amazing how Tom King finally glues the pieces together to make it all work, and to make it all come true for fans. And Mikel Janin's artwork is really addictive nowadays. Really nic...

    Stunning artwork.Sleek and sexy with a little gore and heartbreak... the best type of Batman comic. The epic saga of Batman 💘 Catwoman continues. I thoroughly enjoyed this graphic novel. It was a little difficult to follow in some parts but eventually I got the story out of it. A little less straightforward than some. Still very good none the less. I need to get my hands on the rest of the series for my library.

    [Read as single issues](For the purposes of this review I’m assuming that this actually collects #38-44 and not #38-43, since the trade cover is from #44, the issue title from #44 is the same as the trade title, and volume 7 apparently collects #45-50, so otherwise it’d be missing)“Will you marry me?” – Those four words upended Selina Kyle’s life; and then she went and said yes! But before she can get hitched to the Batman of her drea...

    We’re a few issues away from the big wedding with Batman #50, but there are still obstacles that are set to challenge the romance between the Bat and the Cat — whether it’s one man’s faithfulness to his one true love or the search for that perfect wedding dress, they’re explored in this latest volume of Tom King’s phenomenal Bat-run.

    “You're not Bruce Wayne! You're a sick kid with dead parents.”“Well, yes… but… but what else is Bruce Wayne?”Wow, there hasn’t been a Tom King batbook I haven’t thoroughly enjoyed yet, and this volume is not the exception. Bruce Wayne fanatics, never ending monster hordes, Wonder Woman, more BatCat, and a story line that not only does not portray Ivy as a villain (FINALLY), but furthers her relationship with Harley? What more coul...

    The big day is just around the corner and we got some more insanity to encounter before we get there. This volume collects three stories. The first story is one of those insanity thrillers you either come to love or hate from King (I personally love it). The second story is an interesting team-up of Wonder Woman and Batman that I did not see coming. The main story though involves a very devastating attack by Poison Ivy, which ties back to Batman,...

    I'm still a sucker for the whole Batman-Catwoman wedding thing, which takes up part of this volume. Other elements are quite as strong, particularly a rather rushed story about Poison Ivy taking over the world, except for Bruce and Selina, who are immune to whatever plant-based trickery she's come up with (Ivy controls the entire Justice League, including Superman). Much better is the two-issue story about Batman and Wonder Woman giving the Gentl...

    I received a copy of Batman, Volume 6: Bride or Burglar from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.I am a huge batman fan and try to read any story line of his that I can. So far, I have thoroughly enjoyed this Batman series, especially I Am Bane and The War of Jokes and Riddles. That being said, I could not wait to get my hands on the sixth volume in the series, Bride or Burglar. However, I found myself not as satisfied with this v...

    Note: I received a digital review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.I was initially hesitant to pursue this narrative yet eager to form my own opinion, as it has received quite a bit of social backlog. There’s too much a sense of nostalgia, not enough plausible “action” apparently, too many references to DC’s Silver Age.But even if the feeling tone may not necessarily coincide with collectively adored depictions of Ba...

    "The Origin of Bruce Wayne" from issue #38, with art by Travis Moore, is the best story by far in this collection. Batman encounters a boy who is the mirror image of Bruce Wayne, albeit a dark mirror image. We see how Bruce Wayne could have turned out by the death of his parents, how probably most people would have reacted. This once again shows why Batman is such a powerful character; he overcomes the utmost tragedy to become a beacon of hope."S...

    You will have noticed that the subtitle of this book is not exactly Batman, but actually, in reducing the man's presence and importance on these pages, the result is perhaps better than it might have been. We start with a one-shot that doesn't do what it promises, for one, before a two-issue piece where Selina learns some lessons before the will-they-won't-they wedding that was supposed to be such a showcase for DC in 2018. Yes, Selina is the sub...

    Batman vol 6 continues to be interesting. I’ve been keeping up with the series issue to issue but reread the trade before putting it on here. And I’ll tell you this reads much better in a trade then a single issue.Batman and Catwoman are getting married and Catwoman gets to see Bats do his thing before the nuptials. He fights alongside Wonder Woman as he did Superman last time, though I think Superman’s was more interesting. He helps anothe...

    The road to the altar is turning out to be very difficult for Batman and Catwoman. In this collection of comics, Batman #38-44, Batman and Catwoman must team up with friends and even enemies to defeat old and new villains. From hordes of sin created monsters to Poison Ivy. Bat and Cat also struggle to define their relationship and what it will mean for both of them when they say "I do". I am really enjoying the lead up to the wedding. The creator...

    Batman, Vol. 6: Bride or BurglarWell, with one arc, Tom King has wiped out nearly all the good he’s done with The Batman title since Rebirth started. The final book in the arc, where the name comes from, was good in that we got to see the evolution of Bruce/Batman and Selina/Cat Woman in both costume and relationship but it felt flat. The Ivy story was good but too truncated. I’m tired of storylines that basically affect the entire world then...

    I'm generally a Batman fan but Tom King isn't my favorite scribe for the Dark Knight. He is a little too cerebral, exploring the psychological side of Bruce Wayne. I can't imagine the creative struggle King must go through to come up with new material. However, this book felt a little like filler to me. This trade covers Batman #38-44 and it's a part of the buildup to the biggest event in modern comics (possibly). One of the better parts was the ...

    Though this wasn't my favorite in the King run so far, there are some really nice stories, like the tale of how Bats and Wonder Woman replace the Gentle Man in Gehenna for a day, which for them turns out to be decades, and they have to confront their past feelings for one another with the shadow of Bats' marriage to Selina hovering over them. Good stuff, and some of the other single stories were good. As for the Poison Ivy three-party, it felt a ...

    qué lástima que ya me enteré que todo este arco va a terminar con una babosada. qué coraje, porque tom king parecía --y, en cierta forma, fue, al menos en war of jokes and riddles-- un guionista capaz de subvertir el status quo de batman. el tipo dice que hay que darle chance al resto de su estancia en el título, sin embargo, y esto ha estado tan bien escrito que me siento inclinado a darle el beneficio de la duda.

    The big ceremony is just around the corner and the issues are still great. In this volume you get a bestie adventure between Batman and Wonder Woman, a great Poison Ivy arch, and grieving kid that worships Bruce Wayne. Each story brings something new to the table. Each one has its own vibe while all clearly belonging together in the world of Gotham. Plus they are all told with art work that is sleek and beautiful.

    Will we finally see a wedding between Batman and Catwomen? To be continued. Love the illustrations throughout the comic. The romance between Batman and Catwoman is romantic. Love how Superman is always fighting with Batman. Poisob Ivy illustrations are great. Her character grows through each scene. Comic has romance, fights, death and flashes of the future. Will love catch the bats heart or will he turn to the dark?

    Tom King's Batman run continues to be one of the most exciting things ever to happen to the Dark Knight. Even when the stories are global in scale, they are small and intimate affairs. Before Batman and Catwoman tie the knot, these are stories of self-reflection, as Bruce and Selina must decide who they are as individuals; and of bonding, as Batman shares a kind of camaraderie with Wonder Woman and Catwoman helps Poison Ivy to see who she really ...

    Once again, King keeps giving us a more emotinal take on the Bat. The way he manages the balance of the dark and gritty vigilante stories with the more personal side of Bruce, the one trying to be happy is fantastic. There were great moments throughout the entire book, but the Poison Ivy arc tying in to The War of Jokes and Riddles was definitely the best. Please keep this coming Mr. King, I anxiously await the big day!

    Basic plot: Several short stories leading Bat and Cat closer to their wedding.Nothing could top the previous arc in my mind, but King is still on his game. Theae shorts highlight the partnership between Bat and Car, and what they go through in their crazy life. Some of this felt a bit rushed, as is the nature of shorter stories sometimes. The art was always great, though. There were some particularly beautiful panels in the Ivy storyline.

    It's Tom King. It's Batman. What more is there to say? King's run has far overshadowed Snyder's New 52 outing - the emotional depth of the characters is truly awesome, and the unique stories that King comes up with leave me smiling ear to ear. Let's hope King stays on Batman for a very long time.
