DAMAGE,
is an overall acceptable story. It does suffer from many genre cliches (a jealous ex-partner, the obvious, villainous government amidst others) and an undeniable familiarity with THE HULK so while I am hopeful for The New Age of DC Heroes this is, an underwhelming start for the new line of DC heroes.

This was another awesome "Metal" Tie-In. This was solid again. I have really grown to like Rossmo's art more and more, especially his work at the moment on Shadow/Batman, Batman/Shadow. I like his take on the "Joker" in my opinion and Batman as well. Obviously I can't forget the great writing James Tynion IV always does. Really enjoying the Metal Universe. (9.5 out of 10)

A wonderfully disturbing set of images and ideas come together to make for a very memorable issue. I'll look at his Robins in a whole new light going forward. Unfortunately, the card metaphor/language is so overused by villains and negatively impacted this book.

It's not the first time we see a "what if" Batman killed the Joker, but this time around, it is elevated to the next level. The Dark Nights one-shots have been pretty good thus far and managed to confound the most skeptical ones. This last one had time to build up plenty of expectations though and it if pretty much safe to say that is shattered those expectations. The gritty, grotesque tale of the more

I feel like issue 13 was perhaps a more fitting ending to the series, and that this issue isn't entirely necessary. That said, it is a very good issue and a good conclusion to one of the greatest series I can remember. Slott and Allred's "Silver Surfer" is unlike anything else that has come from the last few years, so fun and full of intelligence and heart. Dawn Greenwood will always be remembered more

I picked this up because Deadpool's part in "Secret Empire" was interesting, and I was fascinated by the new direction the book is taking.
