Sorry this Dark Metal series I just don't like it. I feel like, I don't know how to explain it, there is no consistency.

Justice League #53

“Doom Metal” part one of five-the Dark Nights: Death Metal tie-in that will directly impact the finale of that event! Nightwing’s on a mission to free the Legion of Doom from Perpetua’s clutches.  But to do so, he’ll need the help of none other than…Lex Luthor?!

It is good. Very good. I don't want to spoil anything but don't think you can guess what will happen in this and in the #850 issue.

Amazing Spider-Man: The Sins of Norman Osborn #1

By: Nick Spencer, Federico Vincentini
Released: Sep 16, 2020

• The Sin-Eater has leveled up thanks to Kindred, and his evil plan is WORKING - New York City is on fire at its own hand, Ravencroft is under siege and Spider-Man seems to be the only one who knows right from wrong anymore.

As Cates did with Venom, the first arc of Thor is an exciting ride with amazing art, while the second arc is a slower and more character-focused. This is a very good first part of this slower arc and I want to see more.

Thor #7

By: Donny Cates, Aaron Kuder
Released: Sep 16, 2020

SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH MJOLNIR... And this is a poor time for the All-Father of Asgard to lose his primary weapon. The Golden City is in chaos after Galactus' ill-timed visit, and there are new threats on the horizon. Thor needs his hammer now more than ever...and yet the Uru grows heavier with every passing day. What will it take for the God of T...

Forget any idea what the synopsis or the cover might give you. This isn't a sidestory or a filler issue.

Just. Wow. This issue left me speechless. In a good way.

• When Bruce Banner first came to Shadow Base, he was cut up into pieces and stored in jars. Now Shadow Base is under his control.
•  But Bruce Banner was only the second test subject.

6.0

I liked it. The art especially was great and it felt like the story was finally actually moving forward.

However, it just feels that it is being marketed as a bigger event than it actually is. It doesn't feel that big in scope, just another mediocre Joker storyline. I said it this in my last review, but especially after "Three Jokers", this feels empty and kinda mediocre.
