The big finale of the “War of Jokes and Riddles” arrives on shelves this week. We get answers, at least Catwoman’s big Y or N with this conclusion and maybe, for some of us readers, closure. It hasn’t been a smooth reading experience for me, others might love this story, but Bruce Wayne telling Selina Kyle – pending her answer on a marriage proposal – a story of something that has troubled him since his early days in the cowl, ends now with a shrug of a last chapter. Hell yeah!
Then we hear from Selina and YEP – she says YES. She could have answered no or yes for me and I wouldn’t have cared honestly. I’m hoping that in METAL Catwoman battles an evil Batman and calls the wedding off…Selina and Bruce do deserve each other, but I’m not a fan of character weddings so we shall see. Right now I can’t remember where I saw it, Twitter or another comic, but Bruce has a daughter coming up right? Helena? Am I getting lost in Tylenol PM again? Anyway, it might be the seasonal sickness I’m swimming in, but I have to say it took A LONG TIME to get to this conclusion. If my memory serves me well, eight chapters of WOJAR is about four too many.
