When I first starting reading this issue I was a little confused. I thought maybe I had missed an issue because it started with a character I couldn’t remember if they had introduced previously. BUT, I continued to read anyway, cause it was still good, despite being slightly confused. I knew enough to know that somehow, this guy, Agent Wessel was somehow the Martian Manhunter. more

We’re at the second to last issue now of this story arc. It doesn’t seem to be ramping up for me at all. Ok, they add Superman, and Deathstroke fights him. That sounds very interesting right? Ok, well, I thought the fight was worth mentioning as interesting, but not much else.

Just an observation, and nitpick: There are some panels showing Superman’s hands, like more

My favorite thing about this issue was the connection to the Greek Gods and the world of Wonder Woman that Azzarello molded. I liked that we finally learn about his new look and where it came from. Poseidon! Very cool.

The art was a little spotty for me but it wasn’t bad. It’s interesting that it’s both Trevor McCarthy and Jesus Merino. They seemed to blend well. < more

Art: Wow, there are 3 artists on this issue. What’s happening?!

The storyline continues with the Subterraneans trying to steal this Waynetech artificial sun thing. Both Batman Gordon and Superman are caught in the middle as Aquaman is revealed to be an ally of the Subterraneans. The story is ok, nothing great, but not bad either. I think it was nice to bring Arthur i more

I’m really enjoying most of these fresh takes on books for the DC You initiative. This is something Superman needs, being brought down from being a god. Just lowering his powers isn’t good enough, the physical, visual aspect, emotional/psychological, and philosophical and political aspects of it are what’s making this run different. I feel Greg Pak had a really good grasp on i more

It’s interesting, for the first time, this title did a little recap page of the last issue on the first page. It was a montage of events that looked like memories all hovering over Batgirl’s head.

I loved this parallel that this issue made in this scene where it addresses a question I had from the previous issue. Last issue I thought it was weird that Gordon Batman w more
