I loved it! The one thing that just keeps getting hammered home is that this writer really GETS it. He GETS these characters. His portrayal of them together, and showing "the same thing" from each of their different perspectives is so perfectly spot on. The art was great too. This issue is a prime example of exactly why I read comics.

the book was good. for sure. it is making me think that Chip "wannabe comedian" can actually write when he lays off the humor a bit. but none of that matters. what matters is at the start we see the Mad Thinker looking at his "Where is Reed Richards" board, and... there is a note that says 6/6 ... and 6/6 this year is going to be on a Wednesday. that's enough for me!

this is the opposite of what I'd call "good" in terms of artwork. I'm sure some people will love it but to me it seems like it is being "different" on purpose for no other reason than to do so. It isn't "Burnside bad" but almost. as for the story, that starts bad too. this story is told as the aftermath of the current Action Comics story (that by the way isn't finished yet). in the end, it se more

I suppose this should be a 10 just because it was an UNDO button for last issue which was steaming garbage. this issue basically reverses everything from last issue. either someone really told Tom King to wipe this crap under the rug, or else he planned this all along - that he'd just waste two issues doing nothing but stirring up the pot for no reason. either way he seems like an asshat to me more

as always, the art is that style of poop that I have no idea how anyone enjoys, but ok.. the story is good enough to overlook it.

the drama continues. mostly purple-guy being the d-bag we know him to be while Jessica works herself up for the moment of her suicide attack. that part is well done.

crazy ending, I'm starting to get sick of this story.

I too had to blink a couple of times when I saw that panel with Diana's butt. Are we not passed this in today's day and age? I get that men are given special treatment too but this is over the edge and not necessary. And can we not do this with Batman? I get he's not a perfect person *father* but really? How did King think this would be a good idea? King needs to be on an Elseworlds comic not Batman.

as soon as i saw the Wonder Woman Butt-shot i was having flashbacks of when Ed Benes was drawing Justice League. i don't know? Tom King a lot of the time enjoys referencing writers of past Batman stories. maybe this is his homage to 'All-Star Batman & Robin'?
