Summary
That dark Terminator future that I spoke about last issue and that I was worried about… oh yea its happening. Those damn OMAC’s and Brother Eye are fully back and no one is safe. Technically Btorther Eye Batman says he’ll keep everyone “safe”, but we all know how it will means; Everyone being turned into brainwashed machines going out and killing everyone. Detective Comics is surely to go down as one of Batman’s best comic book since the start of Rebirth. With James Tynion IV leaving very soon, well hope whoever takes the Detective Comics bring the same passion James Tynion IV gave us on his run. For now let go back and worry about our poor Red Robin. Hopefully they can bring him back from this crazy nightmare.
