    We thankfully put a cap on our time in the Gotham Underground with this issue, but like any time spent in the Underground.......... it was a painful experience.  On top of a story that really goes nowhere, we have half our issue given to us with near indecipherable art on top of strange double page panel layouts that happen way too often, which being the part that dealt with the action, I was left just wondering what the hell was actually going on.  I'm a fan of this series, but this has to be the worst that we've gotten so far and I really hope it has the ability to pick up and become a fun book again.

    Lobdell needs to step it up on his writing. There are times that I enjoy reading this comic book, but most I'm trying to figure out what is happening. We had Charon for the past two issues and he didn't do anything other than complain about J.D. and then try to sink Gotham back to the underground (or the other way around"not sure what it would be considered). At the same time, we need to respect the character personalities that we have known these characters to have for the longest time. Jason is not a cheesy guy and although I usually enjoy seeing different sides to a character, that's not him. Read Full Review

    Bland dialogue that has to explain everything to the reader, empty plot developments, Jason being a self-insert character, and bad artwork. The usual.

    This felt super clumsy. The JD story could've been done really nicely, but it's wasted here as it's delivered with the same level of writing as a bad fanfic. It really feels like Lobdell has no idea what to do with these characters.
