It feels so messy. I really don't like the idea how DC makes more and more one-shots that are required to read so that you understand the main book. Why not make them part of the main series?

I don't know what happened to Snyder. I really liked Metal but I really dislike this "EXTREME EPIC METAL WITH WTF MOMENTS AND CRISIS AND WATCHMEN". This book clearly tries too hard and fails misera more

“Fool me once, strike one. But fool me twice...strike three.” - Michael Scott. Yeah, I should have stopped with the event back when I rolled my eyes upon seeing the last panel of Issue 1. I have this impression that this isn’t Snyder’s story at all–that someone from the top is pushing this down his throat.

Your answer to Scott Snyder lies in the fact that he's going mostly independent after this. Clearly he is not writing this series based on any ownership in the ongoing narrative after this series ends. He isn't going to be the Justice League ongoing writer like after Metal. He isn't going to be a character book writer like for Batman. This was supposed to be basically the whacky conclusion to his splintered version of the DC Universe.

Superheroes for Hire - Oct 4, 2020

DC editorial convinced him to make this "count" so they could try another patch on their broken continuity. I still don't think any of this will really matter going forward. That's always just the buzz word these companies tell you to get your buy-in to huge costly events. "Read this. It changes everything." I only bought issue 1 out of morbid curiosity, and I wasn't enticed to read further.

By the second page I already feel the cringe. That should be enough of an indication to stop, but for some reason I kept reading only to encounter that much more cringe.

For all the character the Legion is meant to have none of them have much of a personality and seem to only exist to deliver bits and quips and then vanish, just like the "invisible gentleman" introduced this issue.

One of the new DC Giants I picked up to try. The basic deal is a good deal if you are interested in the character. For Aquaman, a good selection of new and reprint stories were selected for this issue. I liked the lead-off story written by Steve Orlando. There was the quick action, simple dialog, and twist of fate you might expect from a 16-page one-shot story. The art was clean and lively. If more

Art really took a step back from the usual. I see some aping of Sean Gordon Murphy's inked fingerprint motif here, although it is very striking and obvious when it is on the page. It doesn't match the less defined artwork elsewhere on the page. Characters say some quippy lines, and plot points don't all seem to line up. Why are we looking for a dog in the midst of everything else going on, and more

Art and story were more coherent this issue. Robson Rocha continues to illustrate the action and sea-based imagery well in this series. Gho provides consistent coloring. The story is still a little off, but at least it continues where we were last issue. Wish we didn't have Mecha-Manta appear just to be blown up an issue or two later. No character or plot development here.

Prelude:
King has usually been better at the annuals then the main series so let's see how he goes for Annual #4 (even if he has only written three).

The Good:
It's a look into the life of Batman and it works well. We usually see the big plots, jumping from arc to arc. This is what happens in between those and it's just great.
