I want you to think of all the terrible tropes in modern comics that have turned a once mighty industry into a tiny club built around a fringe hobby. This book suffers from all of these trappings. The dialog is straight from a Joss Whedon show. "Like literally." The protagonist is straight out of modern comics central casting and is meant to appeal to a minority of a minority. The only thing uniqu more

I understand the hesitance that some readers are feeling towards this issue, but I think that we should also consider that Snyder has written Batman for years and provided a ton of great stories. I enjoyed the action behind this issue along with the widespread number of villains that appeared. To anyone that is unsure about this comic, I would just recommend to give a few more issues. Snyder has a more

I am starting to wonder at this point what would happen if i eat a bunch of shrooms or drop some
acid, wait for it to kick in and then read through it again? Would it somehow make better
sense to me? The answer, no... And that's the best thing Moon Knight has going for it, you can
be completely lost the whole ride and not even care cause it's just so damn good!

Very new take on Batman, makes me think of something Tarantino-ish and i totally dug it!
Now, i am not the biggest fan of J.R jr's art a lot of the time but i did think it was good enough this time, there were one or two awkward sketches but over all did not feel rushed or "please
stab me in the eyes" worthy like a lot of his stuff can look. Also i thought the color was
