Geoff Johns does a incredible job with continuing the Watchmen story in a respectful manner. Gary Frank is one of DC's finest and he brings his A game to the table for this. Those expecting answers already will be disappointed but the story and playing field were established well in this issue. Can't wait to read the next issue.

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

My only problem with using this source material is the constant need to compare it - and it can likely never reach the bar that is Watchmen. That said, this is an incredible book. So many details done right. The tone, the dialog, the art, the layouts - even the matte paper. This was worth the wait and it's going to be a fun year!

I really enjoyed part three of Rules of Engagement. In the past, a book like this would have devolved into a sexy catfight between two barely dressed female powerhouses. That is not the case. Both women have their historical sex appeal but we really get a chance to delve into their motivations and attachments to Batman. Talia and Cat are an amazing pairing and there is a lot of potential there for more

This is definitely the best of the evil Batmen tie-ins. Rossmo's hectic line style is perfect for this character and really nails the mood of Tynion's story.

In my opinion, this is the best single issue in Tom King's run. Amazingly paced, and the back-and-forth between Selina and Talia, set against the back-and-forth of Dick and Damian really makes this a special issue. The dialog is tight and understandable (there's not a bunch of stammering and stuttering, which I find King likes to use in his dialog), and during the battle, I see why Bruce would cho more

My favorite issue, so far, of King's Batman. Great pacing, action that drove the story, humor, emotion, and resolutions to things that have been building for a while. We're getting to see a more vulnerable Batman through the vulnerabilities of those around him. All of this brought together by Jones' stunning (as always) art: perfect lines and layouts that never leave a doubt as to what's going on.

Part 5 of The Oz Effect seemed way too rushed. Getting Superman from disbelief that Jor-El is Oz to whole-hearted acceptance was too cheap a journey after what Oz set in motion, and the conceit that it was his staff all along that was corrupting his mind is too trite and deus-ex-machina to wipe it all away. It's cheap, lazy and insulting and out-of-nowhere non-foreshadowed writing that could have more

I loved this issue. Joelle Jones is fantastic; say what you will about King's writing but he has consistently had the best artists involved in his projects. The story seems very interesting from a character development perspective where King has shined in his run thus far. Can't wait for the next issue.
