This issue felt rather lackluster and would have worked better as part of an issue of the last arc.

Eternity #1

Oct 24, 2017

Eternity is a good jumping on point for new readers, however it makes more sense with a little back reading into the character of Divinity.

Gotham City Garage #1

Oct 11, 2017

Overall, Gotham City Garage is a series with as much potential as DC Bombshells has, however the art style holds it back from being as good as it could be.

Justice League (2016) #32

Nov 1, 2017

Robert Venditti writes a solid second issue that shows interaction between the Justice League and their dark mirrors incredibly well. The only problem is it feels decompressed throughout the issue.

Dec 6, 2017

Justice League has a very Deathstroke vibe from Christopher Priest who now writes both. It sets out with one goal for the issue and executes it perfectly.

Oct 18, 2017

The issue has some really great moments and a good opener to the arc, however the inclusion of Jon into the story is one that so far may or may not be needed.
