    This is just a majestically great, emotional resonating collection that I didn't in any way see coming. The Rules of Engagement story line is a good to great plot that ads an interesting real world depth to the relationship between Batman and Catwoman and is a narrative quantum leap fo...

    I received this from Netgalley and Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. Wow, just wow. Best Batman volume in ages, and a wonderful tear-jerker ending, too. Something not normally seen or expected, but brilliant nonetheless. Great work, Tom King! ...

    That was a fun issue. So Batman asked Catwoman to marry him and now we get the silly but fun intermission before the big day. Its a bunch of short stories that all tie into the current stuff but are really side stories. They go meet Talia, meet up with Clark and Lois, and then we get s...

    King has Bruce in a place I've never seen him before: vulnerable to the feelings/words/etc. of another person, and I love it. This volume has nary a fight in it (the only extended action sequence is between Talia and Selina) and instead explores a number of relationships in the context...

    Holy Cinderella, I really enjoyed this one! The "Superfriends" arc that's included in this book has to be one of my favorite Batman stories ever. And the Annual issue included here is one of the best single issues of Batman I've read. Many people like to say that Bruce Wayne is the ...

    The Bat finally popped the question to the Cat and now they?re getting hitched. Which means Bruce has gotta do the banal things many single fathers do when they remarry: meet with the ex, have a talk with his kid about his new soon-to-be stepmother and break the happy news to his fri...

    Batman, Volume 5: Rules of Engagement combines the incredible storytelling of Tom King with arguably the very best artist in the business; Joelle Jones. This is the lead in set of tales that lay the groundwork for the current big wedding in comic book world. The marriage between the Ba...

    Could have been good or great with its focuses on the the double date of Batman and Superman but it settles to somewhat good at best. MY GRADE: B minus. ...

    Perfect. (Or perrrrfect. Meeow.) This volume can be broken up into three perfect segments. 1. Batman and Catwoman's (unsanctioned) trip to Khadym. Issues #33-35 "The Rules of Engagment" 2. The double date. Issues #36 & 37 "Superfriends" 3. Batman & Catwoman's beginnin...

    [Read as single issues] Batman and Catwoman are getting ready to get married - but before they do that, there are a few things they need to sort out first, like telling his best friends, rescuing her best friend, and telling his ex. This'll end well. Rules of Engagement is a three ...

    Originalna subverzija i pozitivni anti-klimaks; kad je retko, retko je. Zdravo je videti superheroje kao, ne ?ak ni heroje, nego samo ljude sa, eto, mal?ice ekstremnijim hobijima. 4+ ...

    Tom King has done it. He has made a 5 star volume of Batman. It's been a LONG time since I gave a Batman book a 5 star. See this volume does something the previous did not. There's no big threat, no danger looming in the background, nobody dies (okay maybe someone at one point) but...

    Although he is defined by tragedy during childhood and uses that pain to justify his purpose to fight crime like a creature of the night, who?s to say that Batman can?t show off his funny side? After the major influence of Frank Miller, most fans and creators would lean towards the...

    Tom King finally wrote one I thoroughly enjoy. It's light-hearted and funny as Bruce dithers over telling Clark he's engaged, he and Selina hang out with the Kents, and the various Robins all get the news from Alfred (I've got to say their terrified reaction the Big Secret would be som...

    Tom King rules. Four issues and an annual where nothing really happens and it's still great. This man is a goddam genius and arguably one of the very top writer in the industry in the recent years. No plot, not really. But characters. Excellent characters. Great interactions betw...

    Mixing Batman and humor is a little like bringing your insanely smart but incredibly weird coworker to trivia night with your friends. On the surface, it seems like a good match??Hey, Frank knows more about Italian renaissance architecture than I do about my own body, and I spend a...

    I was a little resistant at first, but Tom King has totally won me over with his run on Batman. This volume is clever, sexy, witty, fun and humorous. I loved it! This is the best Batman book I've read in what seems like forever, and just thinking about it now puts a big grin on m...

    Wow! I'm impressed. There's barely a villain in the book and I loved it! Tom King has quickly made me do a 180 on the Batman / Catwoman romance. Their relationship and banter here is so fantastic. He's really gotten into their heads. First up, Batman and Catwoman head to the desert ...

    Perfect World: The art is just simply beautiful and the tone is beautiful and this arc is entirely and utterly the perfect arc. The world building is fantastic cause it not only moves the world forward in a way that u did not expect that DC would allow but also honors and deals with...

    The best Batman book ever? Well . . . that's a matter of personal opinion. The best Batman book I've ever read? Yes. Vol. 5: Rules of Engagement continues the story-line from the climax of Vol. 2: I Am Suicide (if memory serves - I read it 11 months ago) in regards to the B...

    Very good! So Tom King as cracked the code on writing a batman comic I feel as these last two volumes have been very good! So if you have been living under a rock, Batman and Catwoman are engaged! Whether your on board or not with that (I am), this volume pretty much focuses on that. I...

    I love this volume. I love seeing Bruce dip his toe into the pool of happiness and peace. I think Bruce Wayne- Selina as well- deserves a chance to be truly happy for once, and they could give that to each other. I also love the art, and seeing the parallels between Superman and Batm...

    This volume explores some of the Batman's key relationships before his marriage to Selina Kyle. We get to see Batman and Catwoman visit Talia, Batman and Superman work on their friendship, and Selina and Lois bond for the first time. Relationship centered books like this are they types...

    This is a great Volume where its more about the characters than an actual story plot. 2 story arcs, the first involving Talia and giving us Selinas actual take on Bruce. The second is a double date between Bruce/Selina and Clark/Lois. Its just the four of them being normal and exposing...

    Who has the patience to wait until May to read the new Batman volume by Tom King? Certainly not me. So I got the single issues and read them all at once. After the brilliant thriller that was The War of Jokes and Riddles, Tom King is taking it slow with Rules of Engagement. There ar...

    I'm giving this 4 stars primarily for being different and unexpected. King shows how Batman and Catwoman are made for each other when they go up against an old flame of Bruce's. You also get to see that despite being superheroes, Batman and Superman are still 'guys', who have trouble t...

    You can find my review on my blog by clicking here. After the newly-found quality that surged from The War of Jokes and Riddles, writer Tom King delivers another excellent volume featuring no supervillains at all. How is that event possible? Rules of Engagement is an exploration of ...

    Beautifully written and poetic, this Tom King authored run of Batman is simply incredible. I guess it is not a spoiler to say at this point that Batman and Catwoman appear to be getting hitched: this volume continues to explore their relationship, their history, their connections, deve...

    If a superhero comic is going to be mostly talking with little action, then it usually has to be very well written to keep my attention. Well, King knocked it out of the park with this one. This volume is all about Batman and Catwoman preparing for their big day, and it is completely e...
