There is NO WAY this comic was worth the $7 price tag!

I honestly cannot remember the last time I was this bored reading a Batman comic. The beginning starts with a ton of exposition, by the time the headless victim shows up I had already checked out. The story meanders a bit more until Batman finally shows up in one of the most wonky, awkward, unsatisfying splash pages I've ever seen. more

At last, a hero I can relate to! He is also still masking! (First overt reference in any DC book to the pandemic?)

A promising start by an accomplished talent, and nice that a new book can launch without having a guest appearance by a big name hero.

A really good, if at times a bit cliche, introduction to a new-ish character. The art is fine throughout, and the issue ends with a hell of a cliffhanger.

Very good intro to the team— just what a #1 book should be. MacKay mostly hits the voices of the characters, excelling at writing team leader, Carol Danvers. Art is good but I wish it was a little clearer and more colorful at times.
