This Batman issue is just absurd, it's boring, and it doesn't move the story along at all. I'm almost to the point where I'm going to stop reading the main Batman book. My completionist OCD won't let me quit buying them but I'll just bag and board them for my collection.

I am very over this run. None of the characters are true to canon and Tom King seems not to care about the timeline at all. I hate to say it, but Batman needs new writer. Disappointing. Janin's artwork is good.

What you have with Reborn is pretty much your standard Heaven vs Hell fantasy epic that has been told many times. While this isn't really a bad thing this book doesn't really grip the reader with how by the numbers it is. The world while very intriguing isn't really fleshed out at all. There are so many questions I would of loved for Millar to of explored and explained but instead we get a panel w more

While the fight between Deathstroke and Deadshot was entertaining enough nothing in this issue really pushed the story forward in any meaningful ways.

I had no idea this was based on a tabletop game and purchased it solely on the fact it was written by Kyle Starks. While the setup of the characters is decent enough the plot seems pretty paper thin.

Another extremely strong issue for this new Spider-Man series. This is pretty much a set up issue with Chip setting up the pieces for his first arc so not a whole lot of action but it does set things up quite nicely.
