Someone please make Tim Seeley go away. He is holding my favorite character hostage.

Great concept for an issue, solid execution, great sparing use of Joker dialog, appreciated a writer throwing MARTHA! some recognition for a change. Ending felt abrupt, I almost thought I was missing a page, but I like where this is leading. If you are a fan of a more "street level" Batman, with no bat gods, or resurrection machines powered by mcguffin fluid, I think you will like this story more

Batman #29

By: Tom King, Mikel Janin
Released: Aug 16, 2017

"THE WAR OF JOKES AND RIDDLES" part four ! Batman has done his best to keep the peace, but with neither faction backing down, he may have to choose the lesser of two evils if he wants the violence to end. Will Batman embrace the murderous anarchy of The Joker or the bloody fascism of the Riddler? If he wants to win, he'll have to choose a side-and ...

Not normally a big Snyder fan, especially not of his grandiose concept runs, but with the foundation laid by Casting and Forge, this issue felt great. Like we fully topped the crest of the track, and are starting the plunge down the first hill of the roller coaster. The final reveal was a bit of a letdown, didnt quite hold the same weight with me as attaching Manhattan to Rebirth, as Ive not re more

Its always some mouth-breather trying to change overall scores rather than give a fair score that ruins these aggregate sites. Try and be the change your want to see, people.

READ RUMBLE - Aug 21, 2017

My 4 is a fair score, but agree that a 1 may be overly harsh.

This was an incoherent mess. 'Wagon comes from the root word Wayne...'' Are you f------ kidding me?!?! Man, Snyder just tries too hard, man. None of the characters sounded themselves, either. Cyborg saying he's scared? And another panel he's shaking?? The end with the surprise appearance of a certain character cemented how this book is all over the place. It just does not fit into Rebirth - more

He was shaking from the energy on the island and proximity to the Nth Metal. The Wayne/Wagon thing was a bit of a stretch though.

Ah, that makes sense. Thanks for clarifying.

One of the best setup issues I've ever read, I am completely enthralled and climbing the walls knowing i have to wait a month to see what happens next. The New Gods Mythos is in capable hands, and Kirby would be proud.

Mister Miracle #1

From the team behind THE SHERIFF OF BABYLON and the Hugo Award-nominated writer of Vision comes a unique new take on one of Jack Kirby's most beloved New Gods.

This was an awful story. The art was some of the worst that I've seen in weeks. My exposure to Mister Miracle before now was his time with the JLI and that is not what I got here. I assume this book would be enjoyable closer to Tom Kings fantastic Grayson run but it looks like it's closer to his mediocre Batman work. I would not recommend this story to anyone.

Raptor was completely seeley's creation not an element from a previous run, and you think its boring. You think Pigeon and Defacer are great!? As if more reason to dismiss you opinion was needed after giving this masterpiece a 4.0

Mechanical Mudd - Aug 12, 2017

No Raptor is a garbage rip off of Tiger from Grayson, and enjoyable characters in Nightwing are the Runoffs. As for King's Batman, I Am Gotham was a Masterpiece and I did enjoy I Am Bane, but I Am Suicide, Jokes and Riddles, that Rooftops thing, and even the Button sucked in my opinion. I think King has a lot going in this story like the possibility that everything is a lie created by the Apokoliptians to trick Mr. Miracle, but I still stand at 4/10 regardless.

Regardless of the inevitable payoff, this is a fantastic setup marred only by what is in my opinion some spotty pencil contributions from JRJR. WHAT DID YOU DO BATMAN!? WHATS IN THE BOX!?

Dark Days: The Forge #1

By: Scott Snyder, Andy Kubert
Released: Jun 14, 2017

DARKNESS COMES TO THE DC UNIVERSE WITH THE MYSTERY OF THE FORGE! Aquaman, The Flash and more of DC's pantheon of heroes suspect Batman of hiding a dark secret that could threaten the very existence of the multiverse! It's an epic that will span generations-but how does it connect to the origins of one of DC's most legendary heroes?

I dug this conclusion, and the arc in general. The fallout from it already has me interested in picking up where it leaves off. Deathstroke most of all, based on the solicitations. The part that sticks in my craw is Damien, and his actions in this book. I just dont know how anyone could follow someone who behaves as he does, and I especially dislike what he does to one of my favorite characters more

Well shit, I didnt mean to give it a 10. Was going to drop an 8 on it. My bad.

This felt really out of character for Damien, this felt way more like Tim or Dick, but it made me laugh several times, and made me actually like the character.

Still missing Alfred, Batman reminisces about Damian's first night alone in Gotham without backup.
