I haven't read a Flash book lately and thought an annual would be a good starting point, but it seems I was wrong this time. While the story can be understood easily without any prior knowledge of the character, a lot of details are not clear and hard to follow (How many flashes can there be???). Despite this, the connection between the 3 main protagonists is well established. The story is well ma more

A interesting first issue overall, with a good balance of action and context. The story is not the most original as a LOT a movies and comics have treaded the ground of the retired assassin turned family woman/man whose past comes back to haunt her/him. Its connection to the events in Metal are literally non existing so it's a warning for those expecting it as shown on the cover. Honor's metahuman more

First of all, the timing of it was very well thought off considering how the last Detective ended. It's a very sad and tragic story that puts even more humanity in Clayface's backstory. He was always a great villain and the moral ambiguity they injected in him these past years is brought to a point where it's not clear what he is anymore. Hero, villain, martyr, victim? It could be a problem, but i more

After Detective Comics' issue #973, most notably its cliffhanger, it feels logical and natural to see Clayface in the limelight. His new origin story portrays him as a more human, complex character, while rthe general tone of his backstory and not retconning it for the sake of retconning it (like Mr. Freeze in New 52, but about him later).

It's a pretty consistent event thus far and this issue makes no exception. Being a weekly series, it would be easy to have weaker and slower issues, but they are all action packed and plenty of cliff hangers. It's time they start having REAL consequences though as every time they make the readers fear that a character may die of that an event might change the whole status quo, they end up stepping more

As much as the whole event was great and fresh when it was at its peak, it now feels like the long run isn't doing any service to the story.

I'm not impressed by this whole series I must say. Maybe it just feels underwhelming because of the action packed Avengers No Surrender event running at the same time, or maybe the hype around it all was blown out of proportions by Marvel to cash in on an idea that was probably not worth as much in real that in the room when the first pitched the idea.

Being named "The Death Of Mighty Thor", one could expect things to ge epic and massive in this arc. It sure did, but not in the most standard of way. It's a very emotional kind of epicness for both Jane, Odinson, Odin and now, Falcon. The toll Mjolnir takes on Jane Foster is more than ever felt in how she is depicted. Yes, as a cancer patient nearing death, but also as a kind of addict who can't s more

This series has a way of always making things fresh and new when you start thinking it will stall. It's always changing directions and trying new ways of telling the story of Dylan's life, not of the vigilante he is. It's basically a very human story. This time, things slow down as the "supernatural" aspects of it all takes a front seat just when we thought it was gone for good. Much of the mental more

A shrewd commentary by King on how our childhoods affect our priorities as adults is a sneaky-important part of the narrative here, and Gerads' action-packed panels are the perfect juxtaposition for philosophizing and the seeming inanity of the conversation.
