As a new reader of the series, after the stellar, multi talented issue #700, this one is more focused, which suits the story extremely well. The all-over-the-place approach of the last one would not have been a good way of telling a story if it had overtayed its welcome. The coming of the Mangog needed to be fleshed out as a main threat in this universe and it succeeds by punching the holy hell ou more

This is a satisfying ending of a very uneven story arc, but I hoped for more. Once again, Sejic delivers in depicting detailed, realistic faces with astoundingly well made emotions. This truly is the best looking DC series only because of him.

Issue #4 left me with a funny feeling that things would not give me any answers of would not be satisfying, but after reading #5, I can tell those feelings were not justified. The finale on the first story arc is a perfect set up for things to come and serves as an origin for two characters who will probably be at the center in the future.

It's not the first time we see a "what if" Batman killed the Joker, but this time around, it is elevated to the next level. The Dark Nights one-shots have been pretty good thus far and managed to confound the most skeptical ones.

Good read, nice art, interesting piece of the whole Metal puzzle. Just like Gotham Resistance, the story if enjoyable despite not being essential to the Metal storyline. I just hoped the next tie-in can end on a less bleaker note than the 3 first parts of the arc, because hope is in very short supply until now!

This comic is probably one of the most multi-layered i've read so far. Every panel feels like it's revealing something important but still, when not seen as the whole it's presented in, doesn't mean much out of context.

Giving a nice, old school but yet modern style to Cap is probably amongst the greatest ideas in the Legacy initiative. Embracing the strenght and the cheesyness of the character was something missing for a while at Marvel. That's what a back to basics should be about. It was a real treat to read and made me hopeful about the future of Captain America.
