CrazyforRAMU reviewed Champions #10 Jan 8, 2018
7.0

A short Champions team tangles with an Inhuman internment camp. Humberto Ramos's art is mostly great, barring some places where seeking detail results in confusion. Some of the characterization rubs me the wrong way: Should Miles be so hot-headed? Should Viv be so passive?

And like many issues of the Champions, this one presents a moral conundrum that can, with a simplistic read, look more

Hey now, I really liked BvS. Don’t try to tarnish that by associating it with Tom King. Lol

myconius - Jul 8, 2018

Talon1load - you're right! to be fair, i really enjoyed BvS when i saw it in the theater. i even bought the blu ray as well. but it definitely is a guilty pleasure. i can admittedly see it for all it's flaws. but as you said, it DOES NOT deserve to be lumped in with the filthy mess that is Tom King's Batman. lol

this series is finally starting to pick up, and i hope it continues to improve.
while this issue is far from stellar, it was a mildly amusing read.
the Turtles are getting more focus, it's finally starting to feel like an actual Ninja Turtles book again. though this written for trade style is a bit of a let-down as not too much happens in this issue. it's a slow crawl to the finish.
