“Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo have done wonders with Batman and just when you thought it couldn't get any bigger or better, here comes Endgame.” —Tech Times
“Endgame, as with all of Snyder’s run of Batman so far, is a story that simply should not be missed. Snyder’s themes are boldly stated yet again with an intent to add even more to the Batman mythos.” —IGN
“Why is Gotham City crumbling, you ask? Well, that’s mostly due to Batman writer Scott Snyder putting the city through the wringer time and time again in consistently excellent stories like Court Of Owls, Death Of The Family and now Endgame.” —Nerdist

The story kicks off in explosive fashion, with Batman being attacked by his allies in the Justice League. The confrontation is as thrilling as you might expect, though a little familiar. On this occasion, each member of the League has been singled out and infected with a new strain of Joker venom, which has caused their homicidal rage. It was a little disappointing that all members of the League did not make an appearance, though my guess is that some confrontations were reserved for a tie-in issue of a different series. In any case, the issue sets the frantic pace of the rest of the book.
In fact, it's the pace that I feel is the books greatest weakness. While it makes sense that Batman would refuse to take a break until the crisis the Joker unleashes on Gotham is resolved, it left me feeling like the book would have benefited from a narrative that played out a little slower, with some character moments every now and then in order to allow the reader to get their breath back.
At its heart, Endgame is about the unique relationship between Batman and the Joker, who is more ruthless and dangerous than ever before. A large cast of supporting characters make an appearance but they fade into the background as Batman and Joker's mutual obsession inevitably guides them to a seemingly ultimate confrontation.
The portrayal of the Joker as being intent on humiliating and eliminating Batman, rather than the usual slow torture he is intent on having the Dark Knight endure, is an interesting and unique iteration of the character. His implied immortality is another source of intrigue in the story.
Snyder ends the story with his typical ambiguity, but the threads that are concluded do so in a satisfying way. It's a shame the story wasn't more of a slow burn, I think, but all the same, Endgame was an exciting and enjoyable read for me.
Joker is off the chain as he ends his relationship with Batman and all hell breaks loose.
Friends become enemies, enemies become friends all before a huge finale that feels intimate and personal.
5/5 for a Bat-classic!
