ModestMoonMan reviewed Batman #29 Aug 16, 2017
9.0

A pretty interesting dinner scene concept. Usually I'm not a fan of issue-wide exposition, however King writes Riddler and Joker dialogue so well that it makes for an excellent read. This issue is mostly build up, and will probably read better in the War of Jokes and Riddles trade, but still a great issue.

Batman #29

"THE WAR OF JOKES AND RIDDLES" part four ! Batman has done his best to keep the peace, but with neither faction backing down, he may have to choose the lesser of two evils if he wants the violence to end. Will Batman embrace the murderous anarchy of The Joker or the bloody fascism of the Riddler? If he wants to win, he'll have to choose a side-and ...

An okay issue overall. Decent artwork by Cory Smith, but not his best work. A ton of action in the first half of the book, so the plot didn't really pick up much until the later pages. Glad this series will finally be getting away from the Secret Empire event.

Was really disappointed in this issue. Had been looking towards the reunion of Laura and Logan, but this was just lazy writing. No explanation of how Laura traveled to the past. She also showed no emotion for being reunited with someone who's recent death highly affected her. Generations seems to be nothing but classic characters propping up replacement characters. Laura and Logan both deserve bet more

Compared to the previous story arcs in Superman Rebirth, this one underperformed. At least out of the gate. There's promise here, but the plot seems random. Hopefully part two will give us a more clearer picture on the story direction.

ModestMoonMan reviewed Green Arrow #29 Aug 16, 2017

So far, the best of the Hard-Traveling Hero issues. Having said that, I've tired of the Justice League cameos issue by issue. It'd be nice to get back to just Green Arrow again. Issue #29 had a pretty good story though, and simply stunning art by Juan Ferreyra. The page reveal of Batman was breathtaking.

Excellent artwork. I really like the unique look of Negative Flash, and the black lightening and darkness surrounding him. The story however, was minimal in this issue. It wasn't bad, but more of a summary of events that occurred in the previous story arc. It has a small portion of setup for where the direction this story is going (and collected in trade would read better), but as a single issue, more

Wow, so much to say about this one. First off, a great tribute to Jack Kirby's 100th anniversary. It's great to see his New Gods receive a wonderful new story. Tom King's composing his finest work here, blurring the lines of superhero comics and elements of dealing with PTSD, depression, and losing one's touch with reality. Gerdas' gritty art style works well, and these two seem to do their best w more

An average Jean Grey story with really good art. But with no serviceable fit in continuity, a lackluster ending, and a $5 price tag, it's forgettable and not something I'd recommend.
