Nothing more than a filler issue. We learn a little bit of Larry's back story and see what his life would of been like if he had not been assigned to be Gert's guide. Nothing that pushes the story forward and after the masterpiece that was issue #12 this felt like a little bit of a let down. Hopefully the next issue will get things back on track.

This is exactly what a Spider-Man book should be! Peter swinging around New York City stopping muggers, obnoxiously spouting one liners, and trying to juggle his super hero life with his personal life!

So I'm going to try and stop laughing just long enough to write a review on this magnificent book! I really don't know what else to say about the book that the title hasn't already said. Its a man who is shirtless (pant less as well for most of the comic) who fights bears! What follows in this story is some of the funniest panels I've ever seen in comics.

This book is an incoherent mess. It jumps around timelines, plots, settings without explaining anything. Even when I feel the book is trying to explain what is going on it does it in the most confusing and vague way it can. I read this entire volume twice and don't have a clue of what exactly happened. I'm giving it a 3 just because I loved the art. The character/monster design is fantastic and th more

So this book is extremely hard to review. While I enjoyed it there isn't much to it. There isn't any character development, no real plot, not much of anything other than a woman getting possessed by some demon/monster being and getting her revenge on the people who wronged her in the past. That's it. We don't even really get any info on what this creature is. The entire story is as thin as the pap more

Honestly this was kind of a boring issue. While not bad it just sets the groundwork for the next arc focusing on Azrael but it does so in a little bit of long winded fashion. I feel like we could of been told what is going on in this issue in only a few pages and got a little bit more into the actual conflict this issue. The art is pretty good this issue and no complaints there. I feel this issue more

This is great! Snyder delivered the type of Batman story that I wanted and has the markings of being on the same caliber as Court of Owls. Love how he tied elements from his time on Batman into this. The weakest point was definitely the art, while mostly good, having different artists jump in at random times was jarring. I'm looking forward to the Casting and the Metal event more than before.

Overall a good set up for the Dark Days: Metal event. A lot of the players are set up nicely in this issue as we see Batman looking for a mysterious force. While the other DC heroes start to notice something is up with Batman and start to investigate themselves. The writing in this issue is paced quite well giving us a ton of clues along the way of what's going on but also keeping a ton of mystery more
