Yes the Artwork is great. But I didn't understand how that is a enjoyable comic ... Not that once again the dark turn of event, with all "reality" bullshit & TVserie show turning dark. The story isn't that good. I don't find it smart to make so much time to explain how this Bat person exist. So this isn't a Batman ... More a Batwoman & her name isn't Bruce but Bryce. But the change about Selin more

It was ok. Too much previews for my liking especially considering I k we all this from solicits. I would give it a 7/10 but this loses 2 points for the price. This should have been 2.99 because of all the previews. In the end this is a poor mans rebirth.

Many people had commented on the fact that Laura seeing Logan again did not affect her much emotionally. That seems nothing in comparison to Carol meeting Mar-vell again. She seemed indifferent, not grateful to see him again. The banter between the two did not work naturally. It often felt forced or paced wrong. This is something that is a major flaw of the comic as a whole. The pacing of the stor more

Really wanted to like this conclusion more, think it would've been better if Cap had an internal conflict rather than what we got. Hopefully the next epilogue issue ties up all the loose ends this one didn't bother to acknowledge. Would like to see a more serious fallout that this event was building up too rather than the oh ok everything is fine now approach.
