I wanted to discover this series because I was very intrigued. I was afraid it would be cheesy but it wasn't at all. I really enjoyed this first issue: the story is nice, the duo is fun and innovative and Jorge Jimenez's art fits very well with the tone. It gave me faith in the series and I'm clearly going to read it as a trade at least.

As with the previous issue King's writing beautifully captures the dire tension that is the "war" to come between Batman and Bane. We see both Batman and Bane making their preparations for this battle and get that phenomenal tease of the action ahead in the final page. As always Finch's artwork amazes and really drive home what is at stake in Gotham. Much like belt buckle after thanks giving this more

It's a little better than last issue but it's still weak. Scarecrow's origin and plan are inconsistent. It really disappointed me because I love when he becomes a yellow lantern in Blackest Night but, here, I don't get the explanations. Besides, Simon's portrayal is much better than before. Now that he finally understands what it means to be a Green Lantern, I hope that he'll get stronger and beco more

I still think this comic will be a lot better than the the current Justice League title, but I will admit that this issue was slow and is probably unnecessary to get. It is just another case of heroes being reintroduced, but I do see the necessity for it.

I was a big fan of the looks into the Odinson's past to highlight the flaws in his thinking. We see how Odinson defined himself by holding the hammer even before he could. That thinking is the driving force in this limited series. It is a really great tale with some of my favorite art in a Marvel series coming from Coipel. I can't wait for the conclusion.

I'm more interested in Superwoman's disability than second Clark Kent's mystery, because this second one still doesn't move forward. I'm really waiting for answers in the next issue, because it's becoming really lengthy. Moreover, I'm eager to know what will become of Superwoman. Unusually, the art is quite weak in this issue. Many facial expressions are odd and some pages are a bit overloaded.

I'm really enjoying this series! I'm very happy to see Saint-Walker with his Blue Lantern Corps again. For me, they're an important part of Green Lantern's mythology and they're finally back. Also, the page layouts are splendid in this issue. All I love in Green Lantern is here!

I really didn't expect much from this series but I was very positively surprised! I was afraid by the composition of the team because it seemed quite heterogeneous to me. Ultimately, each member has its place and the main direction of the title is interesting. Overall, the narrative structure of the issue is rather classic but it's not a problem because it's a Rebirth one-shot. The teasings at the 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

I've been waiting for this since the first arc, and I wasn't disappointed! Tom King skillfully develops Batman's relationships with his allies and what it means to be a Robin. I loved the "Batburger" restaurant, very fun as always. Still, I expect even more from the next issues. Also, I'm eager to know what will be Gotham Girl's role.

I'm really not a fan of John Romita Jr. While I was positively surprised in the first volume, the art here is totally different, and it's ugly. The problem is that the style changes every issue because there are many different inkers and colorists, so it's very unconsistent. Sometimes it's fine and sometimes it's too detailled and unreadable. I have no idea why. Maybe Romita hadn't enough time to more

First off, ignore that big #1 on the cover and start this run from the beginning. While technically the start of a brand new arc, you'll appreciate it that much more if you're all caught up. In fact, these first three arcs seem to be forming into some kind of trilogy, and I dream of them being collected together in a single hardcover edition. The current story looks to be a retelling of Moon Knigh more

I enjoyed this arc. The beginninig was rather slow but it quickly became very interesting and original. The ending feels rushed but I really like how Dan Jurgens compares Superman's mistrust in Lex Luthor and in the Godslayer. I didn't understand all the teasings at the end of the issue. For me, they're too much.
