A step to the right direction, but please, end with all this Bizarro stuff! There's absolutely no need to drag this for so long, especially when this book used to have 2-3 issue arcs before.

Yup, this is definitely written by Donny Cates. This really reminds me the beginning of his Venom run in terms of how big this actually feels. Without any doubt, this book is off to a very, very good start.

Fantastic start. Soule perfectly narrates the story following the events following The ESB, and the characterisation is top-notch, especially Luke - I loved every single panel he appeared in. This is off to a very good start, and since the gap between ESB and ROTJ is very short, I doubt this will be a very long series (probably around 25 issues, otherwise it will probably start getting too dragged more

The main story, dealing with the Flashpoint Batman, Bane, etc. was, well, pretty bad. But I've loved the execution of the whole issue, especially the epilogue stuff.

No matter how much I am tired of this whole Year of the Villain nonsense, this was a damn good read. Too bad I don't really care what the outcome will be (though I'm guessing Luthor will definitely be at his current form and this somehow will lead into the new crisis or whatever the next event is supposed to be).
