What sets apart Doomsday Clock from other events recently is how confident it is in itself. It has high expectations to live up to, nerd expectations (looking at you
friend whose name rhymes with Macy ;)), the highest of all expectations. For me it succeeds with flying colours. I predict a lot of purists will cry foul that Comedian was saved, but another group would complain if he weren't inc more

I'm not someone who bows at the feet of Watchmen. It's a great comic, surely, but it's not my favourite. That being said, I loved Doomsday Clock. Not much happens in it, but reading it, you get a sense of what's to come and all the world building being done by Johns and Frank. It has the feel of an epic, in a way I haven't felt in a while (probably not since the Rebirth one-shot, at least). Metal more

This is huge. This issue felt so packed. When you think about it, not a ton happens in this issue. It's mostly setup. But it still did so much, in my opinion. It's insane to see the continuation of Watchmen in this day and age, and Johns, Frank and Anderson are crafting something that is respectful of the source material and promises to do so much more with it. When I first read DC Rebirth #1, see more

Gets a 2 point deduction from my actual score just for saying something is better than The Cure. (PS. Nothing is better than The Cure)

Gets a 0.5 point bonus for punching Hitler.



The dialogue goes from incredibly bad to outright cringe-y at times, with its only decent point being the art by Quinones.

First of all, given that she was born in a lesbian utopia in a parallel dimension with no actual concept of what latina, latinamerica or even the United States is -- why is the cover a homage to Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the USA" album?
