    This was a blast to read through! It starts with the return of Jace to Gotham and we see his bitter relationship with Luke and his father. His family is complex. He is here to work on some secret mission vs Tyler Arkadine as he is trying to stop this criminal. Then we see the drama that surrounds the family and its intriguing. I love the slow reveals and all and finally we get to see what happened when he was 17 and that led to the damage in the family and where he was all those years.

And then he fights this assassin named Morrigan which was cool. Luke is fighting Ratcatcher to try to find some cure for his sister. Shady things with his father and Simon Saint. His mother in some legal things. And police against the masks and so its a new day in Gotham and everyone surrounding Jace are getting so much character development. Its intriguing to see the origins of it considering we have seen what happens in Future State. And what he finds in the end. I love the slow nature of the story and the way they reveal whats going on, the family drama, the mysterious past, new enemies, changing days in Gotham after Joker War and A-Day and so much more and where he is headed is exciting. I like the art for the most part and I read it in digital and it makes for a better read to binge it. Good stuff and I can't wait where he goes next in Fear state.

    I must have gotten like 75% into this one, and I just couldn’t finish it. I found the writing really bland, sad to say. I find the character of Jace fascinating, but the writing just wasn’t doing it for me. 2.5/5 stars

    This was initially announced as replacing the main Batman line after "5G" and I was very excited for it--however, I've largely had a muted response to John Ridley's work here. I loved "The American Way" and "The Other History of the DC Universe" so this was been a bit of a disappointment. It's admittedly a nice shakeup of the Batman dynamic, but the stories aren't very splashy or exciting.

It's admittedly a nice shakeup of the Batman dynamic, but the stories aren't very splashy or exciting. There are a few tweaks to the forumla that help remove the stink of a "Rich White Man beating down the poor and insane" -- Jace actually says he's appropriating it into something better. Yet, what that is isn't entirely revealed. There are glimmers, like not turning first time offenders and youth directly to the police and giving them alternatives; there's less smashing of bones, etc. But as Jace even comments something to the effect of "Us people? Do you mean us, Black people? Or us, Rich people?" The thread being, that Jace is still from a well-to-do family (Lucius of course worked for Bruce and was COO of Wayne Enterprises). It's just not as "radical" was I was expecting, and I think that's MY problem expecting it from a mainstream corporate book. The being said, the family dynamic is extremely well-written, just a tad slow for my tastes and it's not quite as action packed as other Bat-titles currently on the stands now.

    I enjoyed the Future State title and am enjoying this as far as it setting up and leading to that story and the different family dynamics. I get where someone picking this book up might find it lackluster for a Batman title but that previous knowledge from FS definitely builds some of the anticipation albeit at a smaller degree.

    An enjoyable series, nice to see the origin of Jace's Batman from Future State. As it goes though, it's a little slower for something to pick up as it comes out, so if I come back to this I'm going to be picking it up in the trades. So that's my suggestion, if you're interested in John Ridley writing a black batman, hit up the trade. An enjoyable series, nice to see the origin of Jace's Batman from Future State.
