Disappointing. There are two artists but Diana looks like differently people literally in consecutive panels. Maybe Wilson is not being afforded top-flight art teams, but maybe she is not playing to the strengths of the artists at this point. I would love for an arc to fully come together at this point!

Wonder Woman #72

By: G. Willow Wilson, Jesus Merino
Released: Jun 12, 2019

Diana and her compatriots have crossed from our world into a shattered land where no earthly feet have fallen in eons...but that doesn't mean that everything there is dead and gone! If this is indeed the road to the lost Themyscira, Wonder Woman will face any danger to reach its end-but that doesn't mean that those she's traveling with will survive...

The Batman Who Laughs #6

By: Scott Snyder, Jock
Released: Jun 12, 2019

True happiness begins in the heart. Our memories and emotions can play tricks on us, though, and divert one's reality into something completely different. The Batman Who Laughs has based his entire worldview on this very concept, and it is in this moment that he must finally confront the one man who stands in his way, the one man who could complete...

Sometimes when a book starts, there is a 12-issue plan. So I was skeptical it could keep momentum after the conclusion of the first two big arcs. This is a promising start for what's ahead - and surprisingly Conrad didn't skip a beat following Hitch.

Hawkman #13

By: Robert Venditti, Will Conrad
Released: Jun 12, 2019

This issue, it's a story from the pages of Hawkman's journals! Travel back in time to when Carter Hall was reincarnated as a soldier in a cosmic army, while his people were at war! But what happens when a being known for constant reincarnation ends up coming back to life as his own enemy, fighting for the other side? Does it make him a more sympath...

Event Leviathan #1

By: Brian Michael Bendis, Alex Maleev
Released: Jun 12, 2019

The groundbreaking and always-inventive team of writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Alex Maleev (Jinxworld's SCARLET, Marvel's Daredevil) reunite on a mystery thriller that stretches across the DC Universe and touches every character from Batman to Superman to the Question to Talia al Ghul.

The least-enjoyable Tomasi dialogue I have read in a long time, and some of Walker's work seems rushed (other pages look great). The arc ended with a whimper.

Detective Comics #1005

By: Peter J. Tomasi, Brad Walker
Released: Jun 12, 2019

The finale of the Arkham Knight saga arrives as the Knight's surprising cult within Arkham Asylum unleashes its full power! Will Batman be swept under by the madness? Who is the Knight, to have inspired so much loyalty? And is there any way of stopping them that won't just cause their legend to grow?

I can't over-state how amazing Soy was in this - and kudos for Hill for crafting a story to let him shine. But the dialogue is so off-putting that I had to take the score down. A shame.

DCeased #2

Millions are dying every minute. Heroes and villains alike are falling. Can the Justice League unite to find a way to stop the spread of death? Can they save humanity from extinction? Can they even save themselves? The key to survival may hinge on the last moments of one of the World's Finest Heroes...

This issue is awesome. Everything that I love, maybe it is verbally showing what he was doing during all the run but he has to speed up to go Hollywood (because dc send only the worst, like... ? Geoff Johns, only save DC twice). Tom King is very good, extremely good, a titan, a new god and Fornés is as Mazzuchelli as Mazzuchelli.

Is it good?

Is a question that is hard to answer these days considering King's Batman issues. Some are bad, some good, some meh, and some are hard to explain. This is one of those issues.

First, yes art good, you know the drill.

Style and presentation? Well, it is just Bruce and Bane fighting with Thomas narrating Bane's plan and how King's whole Batman run has bee more

"Every day. Every DAMN day. They try to end him. And every day. Every damn day. He tells them. I'm still here."
I enjoyed it but it needs to pick up the pace.

I didn't think this was bad, I actually enjoyed it and I liked how it all connects but once again we don't learn anything that is truly new, just another perspective. This issue was mostly a recap of the story so far and even more

I say this every issue but it is the true, the art never fails in this book, for me it is 10/10 in this issue, then you have 5/5 points for this book. King brings some answers, maybe you will like them or maybe you will hate them, but he starts to explain how every story arc has a conection with the main story. It is clear that Thomas Wayne is telling to the readers the whole story, so now we have more

All head and no heart. While poetically written, it felt mechanical to explain every detail about 6-12 months later than would have been ideal/coherent. The dual artist approach is deployed very wisely here, so credit to Janin and Fornes.

While sometimes things are not as satisfying as we'd want, what really hurts is how much this series has missed the point regarding PTSD. The art is phenomenal. Why would Hal Jordan question what will is? I think he knows. The panels running through DCU heroes teases what could have been a better series.
