Pretty interesting start that goes to path we haven't seen before with a sort-of-new team.

I like it.

Guardians of the Galaxy #1

Once, they were a team of misfits. Now they're a family, and they've earned their peace. But the universe is not a peaceful place -- and it's only getting worse. The Great Empires are in turmoil. The rule of law is dead. And amidst the chaos, the Gods of Olympus have returned -- harbingers of a new age of war, reborn to burn their mark on the stars...

A hard issue to review. It wasn't for me, but it is hard to explain why I didn't like it.

For a standalone issue, it's not bad, but not that amazing either.

The End: Venom #1

THE FINAL VENOM STORY!
The alien symbiote who bonded with Eddie Brock has been through a lot... but not nearly as much as he has coming. In a tale that literally spans over a trillion years, Venom travels the length of space and time as the last defender of life in the universe!

Finally, a Batman comic with Daniel's great art that has good writing???

I've been waiting for this. It is a good start, and I've always liked how Tynion handled Bruce.

But I'm a bit skeptical. I liked King's first 30 issues too, and hated the last 30 issues.

Batman #86

By: James Tynion IV, Tony Daniel

It's a new day in Gotham City, but not the same old Batman. With Bane vanquished and one of his longtime allies gone, Batman has to start picking up the pieces and stepping up his game. Batman has a new plan for Gotham City, but he's not the only one. Deathstroke has returned as well, under a mysterious new contract that could change everything.

I don't know if it is Ottley being back as the artist, but I really liked this one. A nice, slower issue that teases things to come and gives us nice MJ/Pete -moment.

Spencer is better at these smaller stories IMO, the 2099 wasn't good for me.

No, Tom King, throwing incoherent shit, glueing it up with no context and pretending it has a message is not writing. 85 issues, and everything you've set up at the beginning, every promising thing, went to complete disrepair, and in some cases was just abandoned. Example? Gotham Girl killing Batman - remember when she, herself, teased that in the first arc of the series? If you do, well, you're o more

Detective Chimp - Dec 19, 2019

You mean in main continuity @myconius? Because I remember in main continuity he died long time ago in 60's smashed by a rock when saving the life of the Dynamic Duo and then soon returned as a very weird rogue named The Outsider. In Dark Knight Returns Alfred dies at the end. And recently he died in Injustice killed by Zaz for Superman order. And maybe there are another 1 or 2 times outside main continuity but right now I don't remember at all.

myconius - Dec 24, 2019

@Detective Chimp - yeah. in the main continuity. he sacrificed himself to save Brice & Dick, and was replaced by Aunt Harriet, then due to Alfred's popularity they just brought him back. i suspect somewhere down the road DC will be widdling Alfred being alive back into continuity, after they're done trying to capitalize on ALFRED R.I.P. ..not sure if i want to actually waste $4.99 on that.

Bleemak - Dec 14, 2019

I've read ASM #34 and 35 and that doesn't change my opinion. This still feels hard to follow for me and pointless, since we know almost nothing about Miguel's world now. As I said, as a first issue to a new series, it would be pretty okay. But what I've understood is that Spencer is done with 2099 after Omega and ASM 36, so why even bother with this issue? And to my knowledge, they haven't announced any new issues related to 2099.

YourGreenMuse - Dec 14, 2019

The whole point of this 2099 "event" was just to reimagine 2099 with modern 2019 sensibilities instead of early 90s sensibilities. I'd say that we know enough about Miguel's world to figure out what's going on. And there are multiple other one-shots that also delve into what this new version of 2099 is. I think it's just an experiment to see what the creative teams come up with. I was mostly responding to the part about it not seeming to tie-in to ASM, when, yes, it is tying in.
