Man, this story arc is uneven. I praised last issue, but this one had some problems. I get that Jurgens is weaving in current events like workplace shootings, the Syrian chemical weapons attack, a shot at Trump with the fake news commentary, etc to show the dark side of humanity, but it's to on the nose and I wasn't expecting the Oz storyline to end up being social commentary; especially with th more

This storyline is getting a bad rap as I''m enjoying it. I liked the last two issues of backstory and felt it seamlessly tied into the Rebirth one shot. Art was decent too.

Art, in my opinion, is absolutely terrible. The faces look weird and it just seems too heavily inked - just seems dark to me. Other than flashbacks all the panels seemed to be drawn against dark black pages instead of white or something lighter. I''m sticking with this as I''m enjoying the story. Just a bummer about the art.

Very dense and thought provoking. If the rest of the series is as good as this issue it may go down as one of the classic Batman stories ever.

Man, great story with a direct link to Rebirth as it appears Ray is witnessing the actual cracks in reality caused by Dr Manhattan and I'm looking forward to next issue. I liked the fact the issue was devoted to the back story as I felt it was necessary onowing that story. BUT.....the art was terrible, so this gets a lower score.

Wow. I was skeptical with the reveal last issue, but damn does Jurgens write this in a way that makes sense and is obviously connected to rebirth. It was brilliant how he wrote Superman Reborn by combining pre flashpoint superman with new 52 superman and he's continuing that genius with Oz Effect. He makes what you think would be complicated with these stories into plausible, believable outcome more

Reggie Hemingway is a straight moron. Black Racer has nothing to do with this issue. Those were Omega beams fired from a Nth Metal golem that can track Highfather. So while subtle, it's obvious this story has ties to the Metal event. I hate it when reviewers have obviously not read the issue or misread it entirely and then give it a bad score...

Great issue. Granted, this could be seen as 'filler' but when I got to the end I was bummed as I wanted more time with Hal and his dad. Looking forward to next issue.

I have been hard on this series, but I''m still reading it. It all seems so convoluted and with the new metal of batmanium it crossed over into campy. The whole barbatos thing is confusing. I've read Final Crisis, but maybe I need to go back and read Return of Bruce Wayne. I'll keep reading it as it's nice seeing characters I haven't seen in a while.

This was an incoherent mess. 'Wagon comes from the root word Wayne...'' Are you f------ kidding me?!?! Man, Snyder just tries too hard, man. None of the characters sounded themselves, either. Cyborg saying he's scared? And another panel he's shaking?? The end with the surprise appearance of a certain character cemented how this book is all over the place. It just does not fit into Rebirth - more

He was shaking from the energy on the island and proximity to the Nth Metal. The Wayne/Wagon thing was a bit of a stretch though.
