Hard to rate this as it appears this is going to read better as a trade. Very difficult to put a rating on this issue. Have no idea who the heck marionette or mime are. And I think it’s mistake having this be a direct sequel to end of Watchmen as it just doesn’t hold up to Alan Moore’s original story. Johns should write like Johns and not try to continue what Moore did, so overall very d more

Yes - agree. After reading this issue I feel like borrowing a line from Star Wars ‘I’ve got a bad feeling about this’. I hope Johns pulls it off.

myconius - Dec 7, 2017

well said! :D i personally wish they'd gotten someone other than Johns to do this. his writing is pretty much 'Vanilla', as i imaging this to be the world he lives in from hearing him talk in interviews. doesn't sound like he has a grim or gritty bone in his body.

this story was really a nice surprise!
i'm really happy we keep getting more of Grant Morrison & Dan Mora's Klaus.

i love how Grant balances ta fine line between showing a world of cynicism and still manages to inject a warm feeling of heart and hope in to this world.
i must admit there were definitely a moments that made me more than a little misty-eyed.

a nice easy breezy fluff of a story.

i suppose there would definitely be some awkwardness/tension between Batman and Superman of Bruce inviting Clark to meet the future missus. but the dialog of those two droning on and on about whether or not they are truly friends dragged out way too long. it comes off as very out of character for either of them to dismiss the other's friendship.

i thought this was definitely a solid start to this new cross-over. kicked off with some great action.

at first this almost felt like it was going to stay within the continuity of both parties. as the story unfolded i soon realized this is to be taken as a non-canon elsewolrds kind of story. a very good one though.

Not what I was expecting. The arrival of *spoiler* came out of nowhere and even though it was cool to see how the fight scenes were done with the minute countdown I couldn't help feel it was filler as there are a lot of panels with no dialogue. I was expecting an issue showcasing Barry and Bruce's detective skills. I am sure this will be cool in the end, but this issue kind of disappointed me.

even though this was a lot of fluff it was a fairly decent Batman/Flash story,
though it was a HORRIBLE Watchmen story.
i do not like this misconception that Geoff Johns started in DC Rebirth that the Watchmen are some big bad group of badasses that have some sort of unmotivated reason for wanting to harm the DCU and steal time away from them.
it makes NO sense at all.

while i absolutely loved the beginning of this issue, the end fight with Darius Dun/The Collectors was a bit of a thud.
the only thing really saving this issue from being a '7.0' or '7.5' is just how beautiful the beginning was, both emotionally and artistically. that and the fact that we've gotten plenty of time to spend and enjoy with the Turtles.

yet another very exposition-heavy issue, as well as felling like yet another issue that the Tmnt just feel like bystanders in their own story.
