Eddy and Joker always had the weirdest relationship. I suspect that this is gonna play out like a godfather rival mob story with all the villains and Batman in between. Janin's art is always top shelf, his work on Grayson is still one of my all-timers. It was a pity King and Janin exited Grayson early. That series went to $#%! after they left.

There's a reason why no one is reading Cyborg. It's not that good. Considering how good most Rebirth titles are, the less than average level of this title really shows in comparison. The villains are lame, the supporting cast weak, and with a movie solely about Cyborg due out in a few years, it should be on DC's list of priorities to make this title good.

It could've been worse but I actually thought this issue was ok. Overall the series didn't go anywhere, just made Bruce younger so there can be 27 more sequels to the DKR. It does water down Frank Miller's original work. I personally don't think it's worth $50 to get through this slog especially given the delays.

I'm kind of underwhelmed with the whole thing. No faulting Capullo's art, it'll be nice to see him back with Snyder in the upcoming Dark Nights: Metal event. This story was never compelling.

This could've been the de facto Rebirth One-shot issue for Captain Atom but hopefully we get the real thing down the road.

I'll be honest and say I picked this up because the relationship between Diana and Steve was so good in the WW movie and was riding on that high.

DC Rebirth needs to embrace some of their Justice League Dark characters. Seeing Etrigan reminded me that during New 52, Demon Knights was actually pretty good. With Rebirth, they have a blank slate again, so it would make sense to bring back some characters that are beloved by the DC community. Swamp Thing and Zatanna need to shown some love. And DC Rebirth Universe is sorely lacking some Martian more

Decent crossover. Not a very satisfying ending. The one take-away from this issue is that Damian is still a complete @$$hole.

He potentially ruined two speedsters which is not a smart move. Titan Wally now has a heart condition t more
