YourGreenMuse reviewed High Level #2 Mar 20, 2019

This was better than issue one. Interesting things happened, but I can't help but think of the Marvel Zombies Secret Wars miniseries which did this but with one of my favorite characters, Elsa Bloodstone, and really cool zombies. What I'm getting at is the weird unoriginality that permeates this entire series. There's obviously plenty of creativity in this, but it's just telling a story I've seen more

High Level #2

By: Rob Sheridan, Barnaby Bagenda
Released: Mar 20, 2019

Tasked with smuggling the savior of humanity through thousands of miles of religious cults, mutant tribes, war zones, sunken cities, and cybernetic mafias, the woman known only as Thirteen does what any sane person would: try to get out of doing it. But the mystery of High Level calls whether Thirteen likes it or not.

Meh. I don't really care about anything that's happening here. I don't like Ric. And I don't like that his status quo is constantly re-established every single issue, more than once in an issue, like everyone forgot it. It's a really annoying crutch the writers are using.

The guy contradicts himself by the panel is an utter shitheel in comparison to the real Dick Grayson. Whereas the “nightwings” are so confidently out of their depth murderous Jason Todd was a better Nightwing than they’ll ever be, murder and all. This book produces nothing but constant facepalms.

While we do learn about her background information, we are halfway done with this and the pace is incredibly slow. The art is a solid 7/10 the dialogue is more of a 8/10.

This was a really good issue. I think despite its slow start, this series has really come into its own. I also like how the characters continue to break the stereotypes that so many "politically conscious" comics continue to use. If you're going to tackle complicated issues, you can't just simplify them and that's what the stereotypes do.

I would really rather rate this issue an "?" because maybe I am just too dumb to get it.

Basically there's no dialog (King's favorite "Elmer Fudd" tells Batman where the person Bats was chasing went, that's all the dialog).

When the first actual dialogue appears on the 16th page, you know you're not reading a comic. No - you just browse an illustrated flyer, page by page, realizing there's nothing in it. Not substancial, that is. If you thought the last issue of Heroes in Crisis was devoid of any plot, just wait til you see this one. You just wait. An Ikea catalogue has more story to tell than this.

Totally agree. I wish DC would finals realize what a great character he really is, but I think Didio is mainly to blame here, since it already was his decision Pre52 to kill the New Gods off, because he thought they were bad characters. Maybe he should stop pushing his own agenda on comics. If I was in charge in DC I also wouldn’t kill Flash off, just because I personally don’t like him. No, but I can’t spell the name of the artist for the first issues lol

Darkseid24 - Mar 14, 2019

And unfortunately new readers do indeed, because on YouTube there is a character comparison between Thanos& Darkseid & they only mentioned his crappy New52 origin story. How much I hate that one. That’s the comic I would call garbage or trash. Thats a good example for a story, which is worse than anything King ever released, but he also didnt do Darkseid any justice

a lot of the Joker’s more notorious moments have been so popularized that it’s made the demand for those stories to go up in value. like him crippling Barbara Gordon, killing Jason Todd, or killing Sarah Eisen. i sold my original copies of 426-429, but honestly i really don’t miss those. when i sold my NML tpbs i always meant to upgrade to the newer versions, but so far have only bought them digitally. i just can’t pass on those comixology sales for $5 or $6 per volume.
