Okay... was the first page a dream or something? if not... why is everyone in costume?

It's a dream in this specific instance, but the way Duke describes it makes it sound like a thing that actually happens. Since it's in the morning, it could be an after-patrol debriefing sort of thing.

Interesting idea having Gotham's crime scene be mainly during the night. You'd think criminals would quickly figure out that the way to avoid getting assaulted by a billionaire with emotional baggage is to plan crimes around 12 pm instead of 12 am.

Yeeea, I kinda remember the Bats doing a fair amount of daytime crimefighting. Not *as much* to be sure, but bank robberies are normally during business hours.

This is kinda odd!

Who is the guy between Kate and Tim, above Nightwing?

Anyway, really not a fan of DC citizens acting like Marvel ones. I know this unfortunately has been going on for some time, but this is a new low. "You and your people constantly save our lives, and just now you intervened to stop a bad guy from hurting us, but it's not the usual time, so fuck off you creep!"

The scene did a far more efficient job to convince me that the Signal is unnecessary than the number of people in the Batclan. He is unnecessary because those ungrateful bastards don't deserve to be protected.

Batwing II. Luke Fox.

And surely even Marvel civilians have never been that petty and stupid toward a hero, just for saving them because it's the wrong time of day.

It's an obvious jab at Duke's detractors. Which disappoints me, since the first page, while REALLY on the nose with the meta, felt quite honest and humble.

I mean sure, a fucking mountain recently appeared in Gotham and the entire city was rearranged into the four circles of hell, but let's whine about a superhero in daylight.

*sigh* Snyder, don't do the straw critic thing. It's beneath you.

Well, the city getting turned into a new corner of Hell is hardly anything new.
That's a bad Tuesday afternoon in the DC universe.
But a Bat-Hero operating in daylight? Run for the hills! The non-made of pure evil hills!

Okay, can we just... ban creators forever from adressing their critics in the actual comics? Even when Lee was telling everybody what giant meanies they are for complaining how Sue Storm was written back in the sixties, it was never, ever a good sign.

I do love that Snyder acknowledges from the get-go how bloated the Bat-Clan is and the challenge of introducting someone new to it.

I've never felt for a moment that Gotham was supposed to be safe during the day.

Even if Batman is more associated with the night, he's certainly capable of operating during the day and wouldn't stop pursing a criminal just because the sun was rising. "Oh shit, I have to stop pursing Penguin and that busload of nuns he's just hijacked because the child of morning, rosy-fingered Dawn, dost appear"

What criminal WOULDN'T commit crimes when he knew Batman wasn't around?
