Christian Sage reviewed The Penguin #2 Sep 29, 2023

I really enjoyed this issue, and it solidifies the idea the first issue brought about. That being the ruthlessness and that he is a man that gets what he wants by any means necessary. This also brings back The Help who is one of the most formidable members of Batman's rogues gallery. I think this issue was stronger than the first, and was a far more enjoyable read although we are still in the setu more

The Penguin #2

Oswald Cobblepot is preparing to take back the Gotham underworld at the behest of the U.S. government, but to wage this war, he's going to need some ruthless soldiers. For starters...the Help, the merciless assassin Penguin first encountered in the epic Batman: Killing Time. But can the Penguin free the Help from a prison of his own making? Whoever...

I can give Tom king a lot of flak, I think a lot of his books rely on hitting you over the head with faux-gravitas, kind of like being a Neil Gaiman but without the depth or talent.
while feeling like he overstayed his welcome on Mister Miracle, was dealing with his own issues in Strange Adventures, and Human Target wasn’t as good as Milligan’s retool of him but still a decent read. - I w more

Danger Street #9

By: Tom King, Jorge Fornes
Released: Sep 13, 2023

A true joust the likes of which has not been seen since medieval times! Both knights, noble in their quest, are ready to do whatever it takes to bring honor to their sigil. Witness Manhunter and Codename: Assassin fight to the death in a match of wits and stamina as the life of the Commodore and the universe hang in the balance!

Since the 1970s? Creeper, Metamorpho and New Gods have been around a lot, comparatively speaking. New Gods most of all (even in Tom King's Mister Miracle), and Darkseid is in DC's most well known villains category. Metamorpho was in Outsiders and Justice League all the time in the 80s, 90s and even 00s, and the Terrifics in the 10s, among other places. Creeper has had numerous minis and a few other appearances.

(cont'd) the change in characterization for many of the characters in Danger Street is the least of my complaints like I say. Artistic licence etc. etc. It's just that the writing of Danger Street #9 was pretentious, faux-intellectual, and just plain bad.
