I can see I'm not with the majority here when I say this issue was just stunning. First of all, the work of Joelle Jones is on a whole other level than some other artist in the business and with the genius of Bellaire's coloring, it's quite a sight to be seen. Every panel is a work of art and every emotion from the script are carried perfectly through the character's eyes and body language. On the more

Marriage of Bruce and Selina was somewhat divisive among fans, but I really like the idea - for once, the characters could progress and grow as a couple, especially since the previous issue shown them in a realistic, mature light. Remember phenomenal Rooftops mini arc, for example?

I don't know if this issue will change everything (either by establishing Batman and Wonder Woman as an aw more

I understand the criticisms. However, this was a stunningly-drawn issue, possible the best in all of Rebirth. And what works as an interesting plot element does not translate as well in the execution. We will have to see how things resolve in the final part of the Superfriends arc. I am firmly on team Batcat, but I still enjoyed #39. Somehow, the issue feels worse/average because the rest of the r more

Tom King and Mitch Gerard’s Mister Miracle is weird, and layered, it’s heartfelt, and insane. It’s as complex as the protagonist of this odyssey Scott free and big Barda. There is a lot going on. This issue in particular managed to both fill me with joy and dread in an instant. I am invested in this book despite its refusal to let a reader get comfortable with it’s narrative.

Honestly, this is the first issue of Mister Miracle I've read that left me thinking, 'yeah, I get it'. The big themes of family, belief, and zany super-hero/sci-fi action/fun shine through. There's a couple pages of just fantastic use of the 9-panel grid. A couple of huge reveals make this perhaps the most significant issue of the series so far. I'm more excited about the second half of the series more

I thought the conversation was dragging along a little too long, and then you see why. A shrewd commentary by King on how our childhoods affect our priorities as adults is a sneaky-important part of the narrative here, and Gerads' action-packed panels are the perfect juxtaposition for philosophizing and the seeming inanity of the conversation. Fantastic work yet again, King/Gerads.

First things first I like this issue a lot, because it builds on everything that has transpired in Dukes Thoma's life in one fell swoop. This could have been accomplished through a recap sure but Snyder and Tony Patrick take it upon themselves to introduce the reader to Duke through an inner monologue and organic conversation spread through out this comic.

I'm sort of a sucker for the twist but it doesn't blind me completely. Batman makes some large leaps in logic that don't make sense to me. So it's not perfect, but it's still a good read.

This is the one King story (albeit one issue) that didn't stick the landing for a satisfying ending. Travis Moore did good work filling in for this issue, and some of the pages were downright difficult to look at, let alone linger on to take in the detail. King has range - hooray for Batman being a detective!

A fresh new voice noticeable in this first issue. We Are Robin is connected to this 3-issue series, and there are enough interesting characters to set up for more content than that. The exposition was handled in a decent manner but - does DC need recap pages?

This is just brilliant. While I understand people want action, fights, threats etc in a Batman comic, I tend to think it's nice to have stories like that through all the cosmic apocalyptic menaces we see in other series like Metal, Action Comics or Detective Comics.

The story could end here and it would have been an amazing two part story. I am still relatively new to comics but seeing these characters interact on a human level makes it all the more interesting. I mean they go on a double date to a superhero themed state fair. It is awesome. And the manner in which the story is told is unique.

Bruce is so funny without even trying. And Clark is so country it's a bit painful. Two stories being told at the same time without being confusing while mirroring the other is still being written really good.
