It’s January 2020 and I’m putting this over stuffed issue of exposition into the blue recycle bin.

It’s December 2019 and I fork over the $5.99 just to “reward” my patience of waiting 2+ years for a 12 issue series. I know this comic will put me to sleep just days later, and the money would be better spent on Super Man Smashes the Klan 2 but I can’t change time.

I really don't understand how people can like this. Well, maybe on one level, which is as fan fiction.

I'm not so precious as to say that Moore's wishes should be respected and Watchmen characters should never be seen again....mind you Before Watchmen was a pain (despite beautiful Darwyn Cooke material).

But this...I won't get into the entire series and just mention a couple more

Big Brother - Dec 18, 2019

I think the Watchmen trappings give it a feeling of weight, but most everyone who cares is really interested in the continuity/Superman stuff. It's a weird thing that won't age well at all.

Ulf - Dec 18, 2019

Yeah this is a very good point; Watchmen is timeless. Doomsday Clock is really of one period in time and will definitely not age well.

Nice to know the impromptu group that banded together in Justice League Odyssey are now official leaguers.

Also it’s great that Hawkman, Shazam, and Cyborg were all able to reverse their current condition to be present in this momentous occasion. I mean even Harley, an anti-hero at best and someone who is in no way a member of any League also showed up, that’s really something.

It's a new day in Gotham City, but not the same old Batman. With Bane vanquished and one of his longtime allies gone, Batman has to start picking up the pieces and stepping up his game. Batman has a new plan for Gotham City, but he's not the only one. Deathstroke has returned as well, under a mysterious new contract that could change everything.

i honestly felt this was a rehash of the gathering of the Club of Villains from Batman issue #676 (Batman R.I.P.) which is funny because Tony Daniel also drew that as well.

Comics like this help the universe feel together and help create a sense that there is a cohesive direction for the universe. Does it have problems? Yes. Are some stories just glorified previews? Yes. However, each of the stories does enough to help someone who hasn't been following "catch up."

Prelude:
Incoming aims to solve a murder mystery while showcasing the Marvel Universe going into 2020. Let's see how it goes.

The Good:
It was nice seeing how the entire Marvel Universe is going right now.

The Bad:

It is boring at certain points which isn't helped by the length of the issue.

Detective Chimp - Dec 19, 2019

Amen @myconius . Gotham Girl is just an homage to Tom King´s daughter "Claire". Yes, he just made his daughter a bad copy of Supergirl. Maybe a cameo the day of her birthday would be ok but made his daughter a leading charachter in Batman comic just because he can and want to is very disrespectful and unprofessional.
