This is one of the most constantly great series published by DC and this issue is no exception. The plot is original, the characters are complex and the artwork is beautiful. Still, in my opinion, the series doesn't improve much and struggles to surprise, even if I enjoy it a lot.

8.0

This issue is a satisfying conclusion to the best arc of this series yet, but it's not as enjoyable as the other parts of the story. The ending is quite rushed and the epilogue is rather too long. Still, the quality of this series is constantly improving. Another let down is that Di Giandomenico doesn't illustrate the entire chapter. The other artists are good, but not as good as Di Giandomenico, more

Definitely a very interesting one-shot! The art is tremendous. It's dark and creepy, but at the same time perfectly readable and the action is always clear. I particularly love the hand lettered sound effects. The story is also excellent, with an unexpected twist at the end.

This issue is mostly set up even if it's still very enjoyable and masterfully executed. The art is great as always, but I found some facial expressions a bit odd.

This is a Rebirth one-shot, so I didn't expect much, but I got everything I wanted. Batwoman's story is recapped effectively and the direction of this new series is set. The teasing for what's to come showd me exactly what I am expecting. The art is gorgeous and fits perfectly with the character. Alas, my pull-list is already too long and it's not the most important DC series, so I'm going to read more

This issue disappointed me. The first pages promise a Stranger Things-y story, but, the plot is quite confusing and the ending is rather rushed. I wish they had taken the opportunity of this one-shot to develop the relationship between Jon and Cathy more. The new artist, Sebastian Fiumara, has a lovely style, but I found some scenes oddly illustrated. My interest for this series is decreasing and more

This issue takes an unexpected turn. The Challenge of the Gods is an interesting idea and I'm eager to see what will come out of it. The artwork is fantastic as always: dynamic, colorful and with very original panel compositions. Moreover, I love it that, since the last issue, they include concept art and letters at the end.

Characterization continues being the most impressive aspect of this series. In these three excellent stories, Tynion skillfully manages to develop his bat-team and introduces new intriguing threats at the same time. Nevertheless, it feels more like a "deluxe fill-in" than an "oversize anniversary special. I would have preferred this issue to be a stand-alone story rather than a prologue to the nex more

This issue is very enjoyable and keeps the arc's momentum going. The beginning is quite slow and the cliff-hanger is rather odd, but the use of captions is skillful, the plot is great and the take on the Rogues is tremendous. As always, Di Giandomenico's artwork is splendidly unique and Plascencia's colors are vibrant. The splash pages are numerous and particularly gorgeous. So far, the arc is alm more

Another great issue in this mini-series. The plot doesn't move forward a lot, but, as Aaron continues thoroughly exploring the relationship between Thor the Mjolnir, the story finally gets its worthiness. What started as just an enjoyable tale is turning into an important part of Thor's saga. The different artists are all excellent and the idea to insert the guests' flashback scenes between Coipel more

This is the most relevant comic-book series published at this moment. This issue tackles new themes, like feminism and economics, as well as the usual ones, like family and politics, in just 22 pages. It's unbelievable. The artwork is also excellent and goes way beyond merely illustrating the story: the facial expressions are hilarious, visual gags swarm in the background and the panel composition more

This arc started with a great premise but ultimately fell flat. In this last issue, the plot is quite weak, the dialogues are rather clunky and the villain is very uninteresting. DC's multiverse is tremendously rich and it isn't exploited to its full potential in this story. The ending is intriguing but this kind of "Rebirth teasing" cliff-hanger starts being repetitive and I hope we'll begin gett more

I enjoyed the small arc a lot. It skillfully managed to move the series' plot forward and, at the same time, set the stage for Batwoman's series. But what I liked most is how they explore the differences between her and Batman.
