Well this was a step down,from the previous 3 issues.The new artist is very generic.The first half is alright,then in the second half it somewhat picks up,but not much.I am not saying that John Romita jr's art was perfect,I mean he has a tough time drawing feminine faces,but you can fell that he loved drawing this book,and he also draw a lot fenomenal action scenes.Here it's just "getting my pay a more

This series keeps being pretty interesting.We learn a bit more in this issue.Like how Strong Damage is,Ethan having parents,etc.The art is really.People still keep bashing the book,because he is a "Hulk rip-off.Even though:
1)He seems to be different like I said in my previous review.

Pretty good small story.It's good to see that James didn't lost fully his mojo.He is a really good writer (Batman: face the face,Starman),but he makes a lot of meh stuff.His Wonder Woman run isn't that good for instence,but this issue and the other is pretty though provoking.Even though I am a religious person myself,and I am surprised that I wasn't offended by this.The art is way better than the more

It's a great tribute for both Len and Bernie who both ironicly,were born in the same year (1948) and pretty much both died last year.The story is great,basicly Swamp Thing and a kid walk though the snow,from a snow monster.That's the basic premise that the comic wants you to believe.The writing is great.It's always great to see Tom King honoring this old creators.You can tell that he loves them an more

This new origin,changes Clayface from a henchman that has powers to a guy you feel sorry for and you can sympathize with him.And Barrows and Ferreira art is still one of my favorites.The passing is a little fast at the end.But other than that,this is a great book.

Great book I see a lot of potential.I don't think this is a Hulk rip-off as many people say.Turning into a strong big monster isn't the most original idea.Plus it seems different.Ethan is a soldier not a genius.He can talk to Damage,it's not the other is unconcious and other is awake,which I think it can make some really good moments.So can't wait for the next one.

Quality writing right there! Seriously, this comic continues to be hilariously bad! Like a bunch of the Spanish is grammatically and/or spelled wrong. The last time I saw spanish that bad in a Marvel comic was in the Edmonson run of Punisher, and that's because he wanted to write authentic spanish and he sucked at it -- but at least he had the more

Not as strong as the opener but still very satisfying. The ending felt a little ruined by the cover solicitations but the story getting there was still well done. Art was a step down from Fabok but got the job done sufficiently. Overall, still enjoying this crossover and can't wait for Batman #22.

Sorry buddy,but the current art is done by Howard Porter who made some of art for Geoff Johns's Flash run,but don't worry Jason Fabok is doing the art for Batman #22.

I know, I still liked the art quite a bit but it wasn't as great as Fabok. I know that Batman #22 has Fabok back however the change in art did affect my grade slightly.
