The dialogue is all wrong in this book. Kingpin, Mordo, and Captain America say things that are completely out of character. I liked the art though. Story is ok. 5/10

•  With the incredible current events in NYC, Strange must ally himself with some unsavory people.
•  No, Spider-Woman isn't unsavory, though the Doctor is allying with her.
•  It's Wilson Fisk, a.k.a. the Kingpin. That's who we're talking about.

Classic tom king writing and this is probably my favourite batman issue of his run. This does a great job of picking up after the button story and tie into what happened in the button. It completely makes sense given what has been happening during this batman run and the button. If you don't like tom king's writing you won't like this, but if you do this issue is great from the characterization to more

This whole arc is just a teaser for the doomsday clock series that comes out in November. There are no revelations (other than stuff that we already know) and I'm disappointed with what was done with Jay Garrick. There is no plot to this book, it's basically the conclusion of a weird road trip.

Spencer writes a nice villain with his Captain Hydra. Too bad it strains under all the leaps you have to make for Secret Empire to work. Death Camps? Sure, that works in America, never happened before but whatever. Cap takes down mutants, inhumans, and other 'undesirables'. Why not? He manages to somehow subvert Shield, Sword, all eighty some odd Avengers teams. Okay. At this point if you more

I enjoyed the first chapter more, although with Saturn Girl and Johnny Thunder both introduced now, I'm wondering how they're going to wrap up everything in two issues. Fabok and Porter have different styles so if you wait until all four chapters are out and then read them all in one sitting, it can be bit jarring. This chapter wasn't bad but it leaves us on a cliffhanger meeting between Batmen of more
