The premise behind this issue made me smile. The idea that a returning Red Dagger and Ms Marvel were helping a runaway train going twenty-five miles per hour is amusing to me. There was also some other humor that worked for me. Tying in the city to Kamala's story the city gets excited when a new hero arrives. She begins to believe that she is being forgotten.

Wow! I unexpectedly loved this issue. I missed the previous artist for a few pages, but the anime-like style quickly won me over. The new addition is very exciting, and the family moments had a lot of heart.

In what really doesn't surprise me at all this is easily the best book I read this week. Some major developments happen here, I believe, and there's a "Christmas Story" that really sticks with you. If you're not following this series right now I really don't know what to tell you!

Entertaining and memorable moments, but it feels like a slight step back from the first two books, maybe just because the novelty of how bonkers-fun it is has barely worn off.

I was really excited for this series and I'm now more impressed than I expected. Murphy takes this simple idea and runs with it in a very interesting and relevant way. For those that don't like politics in their comics, stay away from this. But if you like politics done in a very interesting way, pick this up.

Amazing. Can't wait to see how super genius Joker puts away that menace Batman for good! The fact that this was made by one guy all by himself makes it all the more impressive. The art looks great and story-wise they looked at a standard Batman/Joker interaction with a bit more focus on the collateral damage/anti-social aspect of Batman and it's a refreshing perspective.

A frustrating book. The inconsistency in the art really throws off the story - with some amazing high highs and some clipart-looking lows. Not sure what to make of Semper - the story arc is fantastic, but the dialogue/inner monologues are out of a '90s cartoon.

A very sweet end to the Alfred story. Though I thought the surprise was a bit hack-y, it's clear Snyder was really putting his all into this, which is impressive considering you know his attention had turned to Metal by this point. Can we take a moment to acknowledge how amazing Jordie Bellaire's colors are?? The backup story feels like it came to a merciful end.

I think the revelation of what Batman did in this was interesting. It's definitely going to piss some folks off that have thin skin but I liked it. I'm also looking forward to what happens post-marriage proposal. Other than that, the overall storyline of WoJaR was meh, filled with many highs and lows.

The issue really comes to the answer in a more roundabout way than I anticipated. Ultimately, the art and dialogue in the Selena scenes are so far superior to the J/R climax, and it makes it an uneven issue. While unfortunate (as this is maybe my least favorite issue of the arc), it does end on a satisfying note.
