Agreed!

READ RUMBLE - Aug 18, 2017

Final Crisis made no sense either. I'm a DC guy and loved Crisis and Infinite Crisis. This, however, is a mess. Abominus fulcrum thing?? JL voltron?? Wagon comes from root word wayne?? You guys are buying into this?? Just because Snyder/Capullo names on it people think its genius. Its not. I don't get blinded by writers celebrity - I'm about good stories and this book was cringe worthy.

This was an incoherent mess. 'Wagon comes from the root word Wayne...'' Are you f------ kidding me?!?! Man, Snyder just tries too hard, man. None of the characters sounded themselves, either. Cyborg saying he's scared? And another panel he's shaking?? The end with the surprise appearance of a certain character cemented how this book is all over the place. It just does not fit into Rebirth - more

I had dropped GA as I was tired of the Ninth Circle and Ollie keep getting his ass handed to him. However, I found myself missing it. These last two arcs are great. This issue is probably weakest one, but still good. Percy just does great character work and that is why I missed it despite this ninth circle storyline going on way, way too long. Can't wait for when Ollie finally kicks their ass more

So I've read Snyder and Capullo's complete run and I've read the first part to Dark Days: The Forge... And I still don't know what the hell is going on half of the time and why I should care. I'm so sick of DC's over reliance on multiverse events and I haven't even read that many of them, how do they still excite long time DC readers? Moreover, why is this a one-shot?
