As others have said, this felt too casually murder-y. And I'm unimpressed by the art -- it's unclear in places, like the page where it seems that the Hulk has torn off the monster's head, and the transformation page in the jail cell was... ambitious, but silly.

I liked it. I didn't love it, apart from the art.

But this is now the last three Batman runs, back-to-back-to-back, featuring what amounts to:

That’s fair. I don’t actually give out 1s, but this actually is one of the worst comics I have ever read in my life which is why it got a 1. If people read my reviews they’d see I’ve given a lot of recognition for Jorges art and the colourist because they were the true stars of the story but that can only hide bad writing for so long. I’m happy though for anyone who enjoyed it, I wish I could have.

It starts here! The new superstar hero of the 1000th century, Gold Lantern, in his bombastic debut! He has such an amazing story, wait till you hear it -- and it starts here!

I mean, Galactus does have a heavily-developed history and role in the universe that this totally throws out the window. There's no denying this is cool and bombastic and epic, and I like his Venom stuff, but maybe Cates needs his own alternate Marvel Universe where he can ignore continuity all he wants.
