Great read!! Not sure why I picked this up. It wasn't on my radar, but a lot of indie books I'm reading either wrapped up or were on hiatus, so I gave this a try and I'm hooked. Excellent first issue. Looking forward to issue 2.

Wow - what a f****** rip off. This book was $4.99?!?! There was multiple pages of NO dialogue and it ended so abruptly. This comic is worth no more than $2.99 at best.

Where is Swamp Thing's Rebirth? Swamp Thing was one of the few titles that was consistently good, proving that not everything during the New 52 era was all bad.

Scott Snyder just gets too cute with his storytelling. It seems like he has to try too hard to have some spin or surprise that alters a character's origin or makeup. Case in point; the surprise revelation at the end of who the boy was running from the bobbies in London.

Not what I was expecting. The arrival of *spoiler* came out of nowhere and even though it was cool to see how the fight scenes were done with the minute countdown I couldn't help feel it was filler as there are a lot of panels with no dialogue. I was expecting an issue showcasing Barry and Bruce's detective skills. I am sure this will be cool in the end, but this issue kind of disappointed me.

I wasn't impressed with this series, but stuck with it due to Landis stating there was a big surprise by issue 7 or 8. I''m glad I did as this issue by itself made it worth sticking around and now I am intrigued as how this will end. Incidentally, I guess the big thing that inspired Landis to write this happens next issue.

It's fine, not great. Recycling the prejudice theme for the billionth time. I like the 80's lineup of characters. I like the tension between Kitty and Colossus. Giving Rachel the new name of "Prestige" is the worst idea ever. 5 bucks for 5 minutes of reading is hard to justify. If you are going to emulate Claremont's work from the 80's, try using at least 20% of his word count.

Reborn did a great job explaining the blue energy in past issues of Superman as well as the other Clark Kent and even what Lana was dealing with in Superwoman. It was genius how it all cane together in a way that was plausible. Question; as Mr Oz is talking in last panels it appears the very last panel focuses on a red planet. Is this a clue as to who is behind everything?
