I was excited after the first issue and thought that maybe I would actually be reading a Marvel comic every month for the first time in many years, but, this book has now become too political and is constantly taking shots at our current President, so it's time for me to say goodbye.

This was an awful story. The art was some of the worst that I've seen in weeks. My exposure to Mister Miracle before now was his time with the JLI and that is not what I got here. I assume this book would be enjoyable closer to Tom Kings fantastic Grayson run but it looks like it's closer to his mediocre Batman work. I would not recommend this story to anyone.

Raptor was completely seeley's creation not an element from a previous run, and you think its boring. You think Pigeon and Defacer are great!? As if more reason to dismiss you opinion was needed after giving this masterpiece a 4.0

Mechanical Mudd - Aug 12, 2017

No Raptor is a garbage rip off of Tiger from Grayson, and enjoyable characters in Nightwing are the Runoffs. As for King's Batman, I Am Gotham was a Masterpiece and I did enjoy I Am Bane, but I Am Suicide, Jokes and Riddles, that Rooftops thing, and even the Button sucked in my opinion. I think King has a lot going in this story like the possibility that everything is a lie created by the Apokoliptians to trick Mr. Miracle, but I still stand at 4/10 regardless.

The change in Volstagg has been a bit jarring for some, so this issue serves as a bit of an explanation. Corruption from power is a common thing in the Thor comics so we should have seen it coming. That same corruption theme is what is bringing Jane closer to death each time she becomes Thor. That need for power is also what drives the Odinson. There is a lot of fun themes that Aaron is playing wi more

Propaganda at it's finest. You can see the political agenda flowing through the cracks of it. If more people read this it would get obliterated with negative reviews. This series isn't what it used to be when the character first debuted. Kamala Khan's title is now only used as to express writer's beliefs which are unsettle and hit you over the head.

Don't like it. Don't read it. Simple.

RustonLF - Aug 1, 2017

I would say Marvel has a long history of commenting on current social issues and leans heavily toward liberal thinking. If propaganda bothers you, or the propaganda they are spreading, maybe you are not the audience for their titles. There is nothing wrong with that, unless you are reading the titles just so you can complain about them.

I, for one, am tired of Tom King's run on Batman. I didn't care for the Bane arc and I am just bored by this one. Batman is a hero. Yes, he makes mistakes, but he deserves a heroic arc. Not wearing a super-powered foe out by getting beat to a pulp several times and the. Getting lucky with a head-butt.
