yeah! i gotta agree, as much as i LOVE Grant's run there were a good number of areas that left me scratching my head. xD i STILL have no clue who that team in the begining of Batman Inc. (series 1) issue #3 are??? and the U.K. European slang they are speaking in REALLY throws me through a loop! ....The Return of Bruce Wayne really feels like Grant was mentally over-extended writing two separate series as well as a one-shot AND getting ready to launch the Batman Inc series.

the Dick Grayson/Damian Wayne dynamic duo is not only one of my favorite parts of Morrison's run, but one of my all-time favorite series in general!!! :D

This is a strong example of how to do a first issue. The charcters are instantly complex and sympathetic, the world is creative, and the plot is exciting. Not to mention the detailed artwork.

Picked this up because i was a massive fan of Warren Johnson's work on Ghost fleet. Was a bit leery initially cause most artist's turned writers have been bad to ok (with a few exceptions of course). Anyway, I think Johnson pulled off both jobs quite impressively (I don't hate the main characteers so chalk that up to a win for the writing)

overall 'Metalhead 2.0' has been a very satisfying story arc.
last month's entry set up a lot of story we could have and action-packed conclusion.

Fairly anti-climatic. To be honest, my favorite part of the Superman series so far was the father-sun dynamic and with Jon missing from this arc, I felt myself losing interest. Thankfully, next issue will be family man Clark again.

The arc as a whole was pretty underwhelming considering its scope. Tomasi and Gleason at least get the characterisations of the different multiversal iterations of Superman, but, for such a large threat, the resolution was really underwhelming. It's a pity as well since the reintroduction of the multiversal concepts last seen in The Multiversity or Final Crisis was really intriguing.

This arc started with a great premise but ultimately fell flat. In this last issue, the plot is quite weak, the dialogues are rather clunky and the villain is very uninteresting. DC's multiverse is tremendously rich and it isn't exploited to its full potential in this story. The ending is intriguing but this kind of "Rebirth teasing" cliff-hanger starts being repetitive and I hope we'll begin gett more

After a strong introduction, this issue is a disappointment. Not much happens between the explanations of what's going on and the presentations of the differents Earths, but the mix of Superman Rebirth and The Multiversity is really enjoyable. Regarding the art, I didn't love the multiplicity of artists (pun intended) because it felt it was due to a time constraint rather than an artistic process. more

yeah, it's good they didn't just move onward and dismiss the whole 'Robo-Donnie' event. i'm sure Donatello is forever changed because of that as well? i'm so thankful for this companion-series. some of the best plot-points for the IDW Tmnt ongoing have been built up within the individual Micro-Series and mini-series. but it’s now SO MUCH easier to keep track of have a steady ongoing like how Mirage had ‘Tales of the Tmnt’.

yeah, you definitely have something there. i've already wasted too much time and money on far too many 'eh i guess it's ok' level comics. my main guide with if i buy and stick with a series is if i can re-read and get the same enjoyment out of a comic as when i first picked it up. there have been too many series that i would eagerly await the next issue, only to feel like it was more tedious than enjoyable to read.

All of these were drawn by Amanda Conner. Harris Comics then published two miniseries. One written by Robinson and drawn by Jusko, the other written by Warren Ellis and drawn by Amanda Conner. This revised Vampi's origins and mission. The mini series led to a new ongoing written by Grant Morrison and Mark Millar with artwork by Conner. They would write nine issues and Conner illustrated six.

Superior fan - Apr 20, 2017

Steven Grant and Conway took over writing. This series lasted for several years until it was cancelled and relaunched. Mark Miller wrote three issues, with art by Mike Mayhew. Various writers and artists have worked on the character. Alan Moore, Jeph Loeb, Bruce Timm, Jay Faeber, Fiakolv. The greatest artists have drawn her. And she had two other reboots than the ones I've listed. Dynamite has done a terrible job with the character.
