Why is Tom King so fucking shit ?

What a waste of three issues. King really has no stories to tell until this goddamn wedding, everything since The War of Jokes and Riddles has just been filler.

>>

>>
>>100517750
Tom King doesn't care about faithful characterization. He rejects the notion of playing within the established borders with toys he uses. The problem is, the end product is below the quality that we seen from people who abide to those borders, so in the end it just feels disrespectful instead of creative.

WTF is wrong with King's Booster? Booster was a goof but he wasn't so manic. Is King making him super happy and cavalier just to try and send a message about depression or something?
>>
>>100517705
>>100517711
I guess that's why Booster is going to be in the Sanctuary. He got fucked in the head, because of this arc.

This is really Bendis tier dialogue.
>>
>>100517670
Jesus Christ King don't make this Booster's fault.
>>
>>100517750
King thrives on writing characters that there hasn't have a definitive fanbase since he can do little changes wily nily and no one will care.

>>100518141
booster is a character that is depresion almost 24/7, so hey, it's not that different

Because it's fun.
>>
>>100518482
This whole arc has been terrible. I’d call it the worst of the run. At least the other stuff had some fun moments (unintentionally or not). This was just dull.
>>
>>100518564
You getting run over by a truck is also fun.

>>100517689
Well, King actually managed to do something interesting, potentially bringing a grizzled, older Bruce Wayne into the future Gotham as a punisher expy. Not the best idea, but at least it's creati-
>>100517705
And this arc officially had no impact on anything ever.
>>
>>100517628
I really hope he means the actual armour and not the force field. Because if it's the latter his bullets would have to be stronger than the Persuader's ax and Superman.
>>
Did he shoot past Booster in the chest? And it didn't result in a time loop so now the canon Booster is a year older and crazy as shit? How hasn't Jurgens murdered King yet?
>>
>>100518195

Yeah, it sort of does. This kind of fits in with the JLI version of the character. It's just that he's had decades of character development since then and is long past being this feckless, foolish dandy. It comes across as inauthentic.

If his past self died here, future booster would have had to start vanishing. But since future booster is talking to batman and catwoman at the end, then past-booster had to have survived and still went through with it, which is pretty fucking retarded.
I'm glad I don't waste money on this garbage.

>>
I get the feeling that this story arc would have been better if it wasn't Booster Gold, as people's main gripe seems to be his characterization. The issue being is that I don't know any other time traveling heroes at DC. Otherwise I think the hate is kind of overblown, I'd say that King's run is on the same level as Snyder's, not too amazing with plenty of bad moments, but wholly awful either.

Booster is probably the most famous one right now, followed by the LoSH, Rip and Flash. But this story wouldn't have worked with any of them either.

A Flash, or even Hunter would work better with this fuckup.

Grimdarking Booster, is a total character assassination.

>>
>>100521156
I mean, the entire point of Booster, is he appears to be a fuckup and self serving buffoon to the public and other heroes.
But, behind the scenes he is protecting the timeline, and master of time.

This completely flips the story. He appears to be a fuckup, and self serving buffoon, and behind the scenes he is a psychotic villain.

This is worse then the Amanda Waller assassinations.

>>
>>100521184
While I don't think this makes him a villain, I think you hit the nail on the head. Booster Gold is on the service level in it for himself, but he's got a heart of gold. This arc portrays Booster as wildly incompetent, causing a dark timeline where he goes crazy, colludes with murderers, and gets people killed. Also, is there a reason why Booster didn't jump through time to stop himself from saving Bruce's parents as soon as the dark timeline was revealed? Does Skeets have a cool down?

>spins this so it's somehow not evidence that he is and always has been a garbage writer.
I agree the vast majority of his Batman run has been garbage, but it's always funny that /co/ quickly forgets his earlier stuff. There's a reason that everyone flipped their shit when they initially brought him onto Batman. Vision, Grayson, Sheriff, and Omega Men are all great.
>>
>>100521654
Booster gets the idea to record irl highlights of both Bruce and Selina's life and struggles. He justifies this because they won't be effecting time just recording it and no one could top that gift. For the last recording they go to the night Bruce's parents getting shot. Skeets argues if it's tasteful to show their last night together as a family and they have a long drawn out debate. Booster in a temperamental spat kicks something on the roof that goes down the alleyway and spooks the Mugger away. Booster concedes and they go forward in time and discover something went wrong.
>>
>>100522025
No they are not. 50 issues of garbage is not an outlier. Bruce Wayne just killed himself. It's the exact cutesy melodramatic nihilistic violent garbage found throughout everything he writes.

>But I'm sure you don't actually dislike Kings batman at all and think it's just contrarianism.
Nice job just assuming I'm lying when I go against your theory that you have to like everything by an author or nothing. Personally I'm dreading King's supposed 100 issue run given that I can count the number of issues of his that I really liked on one hand. The style of writing he refuses to leave does not mesh well at all with Batman. Also some of the best issues of Grayson were definitely written by him.
>>
>>100522090
It is all garbage. Even the people that defend it have about two or three meme issues to choose from out of fifty written, one of which stars Elmer Fudd.

>I mean, the entire point of Booster, is he appears to be a fuckup and self serving buffoon to the public and other heroes.

Why do people think Booster was always like this? Before Ted died he was a retard buffoon who needed to get his shit together.

Ted is now alive in this universe and we don't know what of Boosters history remains intact

>>100522062
Yeah it's hilarious. Only someone with King's comedy chops could have Batman kill himself.

It's really sad that every King storytime quickly stops being about the issue itself and just turns into a handful of anons yelling at each other about how King is the worst writer of all time/perfect.

>>
>>100522325
>>100522328
Discrediting people who hold no stakes in a story is valid because they're discussing something as if their opinion matters. They don't spend money so it shouldn't.

Only a normie would think referring to it as "geek cred" was applicable at all. It's like going to English class you aren't a part of, not doing the readings and speaking on the subject.

>>100522308
It's not hypocrisy. I'm simply pointing out that if we're all making unsubstantiated claims then they're annecdotes which are basically offset by tallying.

Yes? This is a ridiculous line of thinking. Something is either good or bad regardless of whether you've made yourself personally financially invested. Imagine if you applied that standard to other shit: "You can't say the movie was bad, you borrowed the DVD", "How can you say that the book was poorly written if you got it from the library?"

Booster is a time traveler, retard. This is clearly closer to his gloryhound days than his serious hero era. And even when he was more mature he was still a fuck up, not counting the old man Booster who knows Rip Hunter is his son and has been a proper protector of time for decades.

You say this like upping the dollar amount proves your point. Art stands to criticism regardless of how much you paid for it. You're coming off as an autist who is angrily defending his decision to pay for/support something he hates.

It does when you consider thisndoesnt atajd to criticism. And that the only positives people ever share are "oh well this page makes the issue" or "it's not that bad".

Those are weak praises from people who don't see a reason to be critical about a comic since it's low-stakes.

Like sure, after all the stuff Booster has been through, he could have PTSD. But after watching an alternate Bruce kill himself? That's nothing compared to the other shit he's gone through in his jaunts through time.

King seems to especially like taking things seen as silly and making them suicidal in an attempt to give them more meaning. He seems to especially want to be given the keys to booster completely to add to his PTSD sanctuary book.

He's absolute trash.

But 52 and the ensuing Booster Gold series already accomplished this without making him seem like a retard. Booster doesn't deserve this.

>>100520381
it probably depends where. in places like Japan where there are mor cult to heroes it's probably more normallized. In the US it's probably frowned but it's ok, like dressing like bin laden or el Che.

They weren't. That was just before people stopped convincing themselves this entire run was garbage.

Beside the two meme issues which by some miracle came after, ever since the proposal this book has been nearly unreadable.

It won't affect sales one bit. The next arc is a tie in to the wedding and stars the Joker; it's gonna sell by the truckload.

i'm genuinely puzzled by some of the reactions here. King is the best writer in the biz at the moment.

>>
>>100528045

King is the best writer on the biz on literally anything but Batman, and I say this as someone who thoroughly enjoyed this run up until the past dozen issues.
>>
We're coming up to the point where King has written the same amount of issues as Snyder did, (let that sink in for a bit) and the only issues that have been good are #23 with Swamp Thing, The Elmer Fudd special, Superfriends, and the Catwoman annual. That's 5/50. I can't wait for the 5 good Batman issues over the next 2 years.

Okay, what was the point of this story? To show that Bruce is undeniably a dickhead?

>>100517711
By the way guys, King implied he's writing more Booster in the future.

So yeah, fuck Booster fans.

I’ve been liking Kings Batman Run so far, but this arc and this Bosster was just god awful! especially after The Action Comic arc a couple months ago with Booster where he stopped Supes from essentially doing what he just did here

Wonder if Batman realizes that Booster Gold is potentially the most dangerous hero in the universe, and is only balanced by the fact that he's small minded and kinda stupid.

Also they did some odd contrast there.
>Booster in Superman crossover = Manages to save Superman from his own faults, and breaks the rules to save Superman's family. All around saves the day even if no one knows
>Booster in Batman crossover = Fucks up everything and barely overwrites a bad time-loop. Might be insane now.
