One of the most over-rated writers at DC strikes again.

Justice League #6

By: Scott Snyder, Jorge Jimenez
Released: Aug 15, 2018

Did you read the write-up on issue #5? Do you really think anything's gotten better for the Justice League in the past two weeks? Still Force? Still a thing! Ultraviolet Galaxy Lantern? Keeps attacking! Sinestro? Total garbage! Lex Luthor and Joker? Beating everyone to the Source Wall piece. If that happens? You don't wanna know.

I have been a Batman fan for most of my life and I think this run by Tom King may be the worst I've seen. So out of character and poorly done. If DC lets King stay on this book, I may have to drop it and I really hate that thought.

Wow, I am not going to sugar coat this one.

This issue just plain sucks.

Bruce's entire explanation that Freeze is innocent is that Batmanis human and humans make mistakes.

Bruce talks to a juror about God and how Bruce's father wanted Bruce to believe in God, but when Bruce's parents were killed he stopped believing in God and was lost until he found Batman. But B more

All your complaints were addressed in the previous issue where Bruce explains that the whole case was based on Batman finding the slug off ice in the brains that the police missed and that the police later varified was there after batman found it, but no one considered this slug was added after the first autopsy and is reasonable doubt but only if you believe batman is fallible. So yes you missed something.

myconius - Aug 15, 2018

DC characters never really make emotional progress. they usually just keep reverting back to what they once were. ...Damian was introduced in Grant Morrison's Batman run and made significant evolution as a character over it's entirety. ...in the New52, Peter Tomasi starts his Batman & Robin series with Damian reverted back to acting like a little psycho. Tomasi does his own development for Damian as a character and has him grow, but seems to be forgoing that progress when he writes this series.

the best Damian Wayne was ever written was by the hand of his creator, within the original run of Batman & Robin as well as Batman Incorporated.
