JonnyO reviewed Leviathan Dawn #1 Feb 26, 2020

Like the subtitling hints, this book did a great job setting up the chessboard and moving the parts into the proper places. As part of what seems to be a slow burn story, it successfully does its job. As for the art, Maleev does a great job brining a time to the book that only he can.

Quinn reviewed Batman #88 Feb 5, 2020

No. Just no.

I had hoped that King's successor would build on the good stuff that King did. And to be fair, for all my criticisms of King, I must acknowledge he did some good things - especially his relationship with Catwoman.

But that's where this issue really falls apart. It turns out that Catwoman, Riddler and Penguin were part of some cabal with a secret agenda. (Apparent more

King didn’t do any good stuff so what would he have to build on?

Quinn - Feb 6, 2020

Like I said, I liked that fact that he was serious about the Batman/Catwoman romance. As to whether that was really good, I'll say it was mixed, but understand if others didn't like it. But all in all, it was something new and there was enough there that I liked that I'll say it was good. Again, good not great. Or I could be wrong.
