1.0

My review is only about the Ashes Of Eden story by Sam Johns and Laura Braga. A horrible story that erases all character progress of Poison Ivy and pretty much turns her into a Nazi planning to murder the entire Gotham City as a response to her garden getting burned. Laura Bragas art is buried underneath 90s edginess and what pretty much is a copy paste of Carnage USA only with Ivy in the place of more

I bought this as well as the previous issue after a small discussion with Tynion. The art is really beautiful and so are the colors. But good art is not enough to make a comic good. The plot here is nonexistent. The plot in the whole arc is nonexistent. There is no risk, no sense of danger, of urgency. The Alfred dialogue was unnecessary and it lacked emotional depth. But the worst part of it. Oh more

“The Joker War” part four of six! Batman is at his most vulnerable following a massive dose of an experimental new Joker toxin. With the Dark Knight haunted by demons and visions, it’s up to Harley Quinn to protect him while he recovers-because Punchline is on her way!

This is what happens when a bad editor (Brian Cunningham aka the dude who kicked Gail Simone off Batgirl in hi first day at the office) teams up with a yes man writer. A badly written, horribly edited mess of a book with no redeeming qualities.

Harley Quinn’s sojourn in L.A. has been full of tragedy and heartbreak, from the death of her friend to uncovering a deep web of moral compromise that’d make even the most sadistic Batman villain’s stomach churn. In the epic finale to our story, Harley will come face to face with the person pulling the strings and learn who’s out to see her...

Eh, never liked Palomotti's and Conner's version of HQ in the first place/ And tbh i don't see much of a distinction with Humphire's version either.

Nihilist - Jul 8, 2020

Same here, Liem. I really hate how Harley was turned into a one dimensional Mary Sue after Dini stepped down, and I certainly don't see much of a difference between Palmiotti/Conner take on the character and this one (or Tieri's for that matter). Same trash. Albeit I gotta say calling Humphries a "yes man" is pretty much spot on.

@Hi! I'm TP your PS at the end of the review still stands. It does not sound like you are saying "maybe" therapy will work for you. In essence you confuse me, since you contradict yourself. You're also putting words in my mouth when you say I said Therapy is useless, again this is not a black and white issue. To be honest I think Therapy works for the majority, putting me on the side of Therapy. Just because it didnt work for me doesnt mean it wont help you.

I would never tell someone not to go to Therapy. However I sure as hell won't tell em all thier problems would be solved either. Infact it was that sort of attitude that made Wally feel so isolated, cause it wasnt helping him... at the end of the day, the only person that can fix you... is you.

Seen people say that Heroes in Crisis is hated because they don't get the subtext -- you know, Wally dealing with loss and so on -- but if it really was about that, then we should have had a book that dealt with that. If that was really the case, why is that particular thing a small percentage of the story? Why is it a bad murder mystery that is not even resolved, but for a taped confession? >
In the end, we just get the heroes stopping Wally from killing himself, gets some hugs, and gets placed in JL jail... hooray *sarcasm*

It's so weird that King can do an excellent book on anxiety and mental illness in Mister Miracle, and completely screw the pooch on the same topic just months later. The highest of highs, the lowest of lows. more

It's a short mystery Crisis story... in league with something like Identity Crisis, but much better so far. This story has far more personality, while balancing its dramatic themes well and clearly with imposing force. But, if you hate the characterizations I guess there would be no saving this one for you. I just think writers should have a chance to work with characters that are more malleable, and not bound by other interpretations in such a rigid way.
