Superheroes for Hire reviewed Doomsday Clock #1 Nov 22, 2017
9.0

Not truly a "sequel" to Watchmen, but more the last chapter to a doomed universe. People worried that we'd get DC Universe in Watchmen or vice versa, but this first issue promises a desperate attempt to find hope from the DC Universe. I'm in bored after an issue of solid art, good writing, and clever hooks.

Superheroes for Hire reviewed Batman #34 Nov 6, 2017

Even though I'm not 100% sold on Joelle Jones' art for Batman, the art is fantastic and presents a unique take on the Dark Knight and his family of dark and mysterious vigilantes. There's some humor, some fighting, and some relationship building. I'm curious as to how and why Holly Robinson has ended up under the protection of Talia, or for that matter why Talia and her "realm" are off limits to t more

Batman #34

By: Tom King, Joelle Jones

"Rules Of Engagement" part two! Batman is on a quest in the desert, far from his Gotham City home. His friends and allies think he's gone crazy, and his mission puts him far outside the law. Waiting for him at the center of the chaos is an old enemy... and plenty of old demons.

I love where this is all heading. I thought it would involve Mr.Oz more, but seeing how Action Comics handles him, I'm glad Dectective went in another direction. They really made Tim-Batman a dangerous foe and seeing the whole family together to tackle the danger is extremely compelling. The emotional return of Tim amongst them was also a great and defining moment. We still don't know the extent o more

Superheroes for Hire - Nov 6, 2017

I agree. It's nice to see the two series touch for a moment and then diverge. In tandem, you get to see how the Superman and Batman families are handling the respective bombshells being launched their way by the puppet master behind all this (Dr Manhattan).

The bad who - Nov 6, 2017

This gets me so hyped for Doomsday Clock. I am a die hard Watchmen fan and it feels like everything DC related is heading toward this. Here's hoping they don't mess it up

This story arc has been firing on all cylinders, and this issue is no different. This is exactly what I'd expect from a story about the Bat Family dealing with an unknown threat from their very midst. They still don't know what they're up against when it comes to the one really pulling the strings here. The Alvaro Martinez art is fantastic and cinematic. There's a really great Spoiler splash page more

Overall a good read. Expensive, but the per page cost is low and you get a wide range of dark short stories featuring fan favorite characters. And the art is all fantastic. I'd actually like to see a few stories expanded on at some point.

First, I'll admit 2 things. I'm a DC fan first, and I couldn't make it through this whole book. The chopped up voiceover narration bits got to be too much for me, so I skimmed the rest and looked at the excellent artwork until the last couple pages. The B.C. story was interesting, then it ended. The Ghost Rider/Starbrand story was an odd choice to weave everything else around. And why did Starbran more

There is a title, and then there is a comic book. With Retcon #1, the comic book offers nothing which was advertised by the title or solicitation blurb. Our was an okay book with decent art, but the creators clearly hoped to confuse buyers to pick up the first few issues. Maybe issue 2 is different, but I'm not interested by the acid trip of #1.
