I have to admit, the story in this issue improved. It's gone from abhorrently bad to just dull and uninteresting. Progress was made!

The plot-holes present in this story that remains lackluster have never been more jarring than with a Lois Lane who would leave her son without second thoughts with an individual, who I reiterate for what feels like the nth time, WAS AN ENEMY of theirs the more

Not sure where it fits in current continuity but as far as I know it might be, there are stories that at least tie-in to Dr Manhattan’s prescence in the DCU

incredibly stupid. so.. your wife and son left in a hurry one night to go into outer space against your wishes... you lost contact with them.. they've been gone for months and now the wife is back without the kid and doesn't even tell you... because she just wants to write?

He just doesn't know what to do, and i personally think that he never read the rebirth material, that's his problem, i think bendis is trying to give what fans want, but tomasi gave fans what we needed

Sook's art is breathtaking, but even that can't save this dumpster fire. There are far too many plot holes. Lois' written completely out of character and her reasons for not telling Clark she's back are flimsy at best and ignores two years of continuity. Clark goes along with this barely questions anything. He doesn't really seem to care that his son is with a genocidal maniac. Neither of them co more

I’ve been calling bendis’ run crap from the start of the Man of Steel mini, so speaking for myself, I wouldn’t bother making other accounts when I consider the reviews I write to be enough.

Who would've thought Suicide Squad can have a solid arc these days? While the issue sure is far from perfect, it's a decent read, and a good conclusion to the Kobra arc. Albeit I wouldn't mind Deadshot's hand growing back permanently instead of just disappearing like it did in the end of the comic - never been a fan of his Skywalker prosthetic, it was pretty pointless from the very beginning. >Other than that, I'd recommend the issue, of course within margin of reason. It's still Suicide Squad, so it's better not to expect much from it. more

This gets a 6, because of the Aquaman crossover. This doesn’t take away from Suicide Squad being one of the worst Rebirth titles throughout its run, never howlingly bad but always consistingly mediocre.
No character development, the characters have been calcified from the first issue, probably in an effort to mirror the film. But with the exception of Deadshot, all of them are one note cart more

Though the conclusion is surprisingly ironic, this is the worst story arc of Ed Brisson run. This is a Daredevil comic, not a Wolverine one.
The fact the whole story is built on Logan trying to decrypt a USB is ludicrous. Couldn’t he have called anyone on the X Men Mansion to help? Ditto, would Logan travel with a citizen at risk on the subway needlessly endangeribg him and getting him shot more

Art was again, on point! Favorites issue in the series so far! Only Quiver was, so the explosion never happened with Beast? A little part of me wishes that Esme is alive to make an arcnemesis for Laura. Though no doubt that there is a part of Sophie still in Laura's head. Tamaki deff feels like she has the dialogue for both Laura and Gabby down.

On its seventh issue this seems to be one of the best revitalizations of a super hero in recent times. Al Ewing’s storytelling is brilliant and unpredictable.
If Ewing keeps it up this could be up there with Tom King’s Vision or Jason Aaron’s work on Thor.
Probably the best book being published by Marvel right now.

This issue is an improvement over the last ones, as it’s at least some fun and relatively linear.
However, the whole thing feels absolutely unnecessary and irrelevant. Why did this story need to be told? To reintroduce Warlock? He has hardly been the star at this and when he shows up, he is far from compelling.

The story continues to be convoluted and dense. So far the real star of these 9 issues is Lex Luthor. They would have been better off calling this Legion of Doom.
Snyder continues to think the Batman Who Laughs is a fascinating creation. It’s not. In its own way it’s as disastrous a creation as Nazi Cap. You should always believe that in any universe Bruce Wayne would be Bruce Wayne. >The concepts are interesting and yes, thought provoking, but then we get into an Aquaman oriented story to tie in with the upcoming movie.
The heroes hardly get any exposure. I think Superman and Wonder Woman don’t get to say a word in the entire issue.
Ambitious but misguided. more
