Supes' soups reviewed Teen Titans #12 Sep 13, 2017
8.5

By no means is this essential reading but it does let the reader explore the Metal world a bit more and I found it to be a fun read. With the lead-in to Nightwing 29 as its final page, I'm excited to see how Grayson fits into all this. Quinn and Croc showing up in the middle of nowhere seemed a bit random. Arrow's appearance makes more sense and I actually think Emiko and Damian were made for each more

I really liked this issue. Maybe it's because I was a bit oblivious to what was going to happen but when Green Arrow showed up I started getting giddy, and when Harley and Croc busted in I realized this was definitely not a "Teen Titans" book in any real sense. I could see this being a bummer to some people but I actually found it to be a good fun break from the regular series and probably a bette more

Just when I thought Batman couldn't get any worse #30 comes around.... there is nothing here even remotely redeemable. King has completely destroyed Batman... siding with a villain not to mention one who has or will kill a child and just standing there like it's no big deal? This whole issue is pointless, just a depressed kite man's inner monologue wanting to know why people think he's a joke. It more

Released: Sep 6, 2017

"THE BALLAD OF KITE MAN" part two! In our second "War of Jokes and Riddles" interlude, it's the making of a super-villain! He's been pushed by Batman to snitch on The Joker, and cajoled by The Joker to betray Batman-now, the flunky who would be Kite Man finally snaps. He's lost everything, and a life of crime is the only way to go.

Isn't it painfully obvious that Batman has a bigger objective in mind? A master plan to put in motion? And KiteMan is emo? Because people think's he's a joke? Because his son died? That's emo?

Kgphil01 - Sep 6, 2017

I'm sure there is some game Batman is playing that he has the upper hand but it's interesting or gripping at all IMO. The whole Batman run so far has been nothing but inner monologues of whining about things I call that emo. If you like it awesome I'm glad you do! But for me this entire King run has been an awful mess. Just giving my opinions on this issue not trying change anyone's mind and no one is going to change mine.

Had to stop myself from giving this a ten just to try and balance out the rating on this. People giving this a 1 are being ridiculous. To those complaining about Batman taking a side... are you all forgetting about the framing of this story? Batman regrets something he did in his past and is telling us about it. Maybe he's just as pissed off he worked with the Riddler as you are? Maybe he sees it more

Also, for the record. Kite Man, hell yeah. Would you consider not caring about Batman because he basically always wins (you can challenge that he definitely has taken some losses but really he's always standing strong in the end)? Someone being a loser doesn't make them a bad character.

MKW69 - Sep 8, 2017

One of the main things for the Joker is supposed to have is to not have ,,main character". He changes from time to time. This could be showed here, with him changing from a 66 clown to Heath Ledger Sociopath, to into Nicholson Joker. Here we have Joker that could be defined in one word ,,butthurt". And for Kite Man. This is a flashback in which we (the audience) are being showed that Kite Man is still active. He propably didn't get his revenge or go insane from it.

I really didn't want to get sucked into this event, not because I'm anti-Hydra Cap (people complaining about that for the sake of it need to get over themselves) but because Civil War II burned me so hard I was considering dropping Marvel altogether.

cont'd... didnt realize we had a word limit... Highly recommend reading Captain America: Steve Rogers #1-16 (yes the whole damn thing) and Uncanny Avengers #18-22 (and I guess some recent Thunderbolts, but meh) to fully appreciate what's going on, and obviously the zero issue. A lot of time was put into setting up this event and it pays off. I could see how maybe there was even too much lead up for some people, but I wasn't reading these titles month to month so I didn't have to suffer a wait.
