This is another okay issue. I'm just not enjoying this series. I keep hoping they are going to do something new and awesome with the property, and I think I'm just going to be eternally disappointed. This issue takes a focus on the demon fighting and it's the same soul stealing demons from the previous issue. We did get a little stuff about Paige and one of her charges. But it's pretty medi more

I was really happy with the first issue of The Big Lie, but this issue left me wanting a little bit more. I enjoyed the change of point of view to Nancy's POV, she definitely knows more than what she is talking about, but I found myself a little lost. I'm not really sure what her end game is, and I understand it's supposed to be a mystery, but I wish there was a little bit more information g more

I'm not really sure what this is, but I kinda liked it. I'm very interested in the magical elements of this, and there is a tad of mystery, but it's seems kinda of thrown in. I need to know more. But I'm not 100% on board. I don't even know our main character's name. Honestly, I'm pretty bad at remembering names, but still. I'm intrigued, but I'm not ready to put it on my pull list quite more

This was awesome! I can't begin to explain how much I love that they are paying off on the emotional affects of Tim's death. This issue, I think, is the conclusion of the Victim Syndicate storyline that has the first victim taken down. Except that already happened. This pits Spoiler against the Bat Family. She is done with the world as it is, and the destruction Batman has caused. I beli more

This issue had Batgirl racing against time to protect Kai. As she had always suspected, Kai is a part of a biological bacteria smuggling operation that is supposed to help our villains pass a college entrance exam.
