I'm not falling for it. I have no idea what's going on with DCs continuity right now. I suspect even they don't know.
And for all the acclaim Scott Snyder's Batman run has gotten, from the few scattered issues I've popped my head in for, I haven't been impressed. Which is too bad, because I was liking his pre-Nu52 Detective runs.
I didn't read Court of Owls, but the idea that there's been a centuries old cabal hidden in Gotham and rich boy Wayne had no clue it existed is ridiculous.
Trying to wedge Morrison's Batman Inc stuff into the Nu52 continuity was ridiculous.
Death of the Family started out strong, but the ending was weak and underwhelming.
Zero Year shat all over Year One and ended up being No Man's Land caused by the Riddler, which is ridiculous. And it went on way too long.
And then there's the whole Batman has amnesia and Gordon is the Bat-Rabbit Robot. Which is ridiculous. Except for the part where Bruce uploads his e-memory from the machine he had just in case he got amnesia. No wait, that's ultra ridiculous.
And while I enjoy Capullo's art and he had some pretty badass Batman pages, his human characters all look a little too cartoony for me.
