Red Hood and Arsenal began this investigation of the Underlife together in Beijing, and this is where it ends: in an abandoned prison in Mexico.

"This is the best Superman story I've ever written." So says living legend Marv Wolfman, and when you've written hundreds of Superman stories as he has, it means a great deal. This gem of a tale - written and drawn from 2006-2009 for the SUPERMAN CONFIDENTIAL series - explodes from the DC archives as a triumphant tale of Clark Kent's fateful first ...

This was troubling. I didn't like this issue. It falls into the same trap that most Orlando stories do where they mistake that the reader has established an emotional connection with the characters.

Nightwing has quickly become one of the worst books DC is currently publishing.

This issue exemplifies that.

Darkseid24 - Jan 11, 2019

@ RBL I get that, but problem is Dick is acting pretty much the same. I hoped, that with Scarecrow as the villain we would get a better reason, why he doesn’t want to be Nightwing anymore like a fear of being shot again or even questioning his life, but DC kind of missed this opportunity. Or not being that cheerful after a trauma. Maybe even physical& psychological issues. & myconius The super - Spy Phase was awful, but you’re right. DC should have portrayed Dick more broken like when he killed

User reviews show a different story. Critics have more to lose if they decide to lambast something over general users. This is a bad storyline, and regardless of what you want to say I won’t change my mind on that. Just like you apparently believe this is “amazing” when it’s average-at-best. There is no point to discussing it further.
