    52 #17 is a solid issue and the fact that it got my lowest score and is my least favorite issue of this series thus far is more of a compliment to these past 17 issues than a condemnation of this one issue. 52 is still a well done story that is largely entertaining. It is almost impossible for the writers to crush a home run for 52 straight issues. 52 #17 was the weakest issue for me, but I'm still excited for next weeks issue, because you never know what wild surprise is just around the corner.

Mr. Wanty also wants no more disemboweling and beheading of characters created by Jack Kirby for DC Comics. And, lets seeoh, yeah! Mr. Wanty still wants more Batwoman. More Lobo-less Batwoman. A whole bunch of Czarnian-free Batwoman goodness Read Full Review
