Solid start! The art was great, and I’m just so glad that Wolverine is back, bub. (See what I did there?)

He’s the best there is at what he does, and what he does is SUPER NICE!

Mister Miracle #11

Released: Sep 19, 2018

If there's one thing popular fiction has taught us by now, it's: never make a deal with the devil! And yet Mister Miracle is still listening when Darkseid approaches him with just such a devilish proposition-if Scott sends his newborn son to Apokolips, there will be peace on New Genesis. Since when has Darkseid been famous for his honesty?! It'll b...

Not the best story of the run, but it’s still better than 90% of what’s being published. Daniel’s art is great.

Batman #55

By: Tom King, Tony Daniel
Released: Sep 19, 2018

The KGBeast lives! The Russian super-assassin is back-but under whose orders? Does he have a specific mission, or is this simply some leftover Cold War mayhem? Nyet, comrade-it has to do with Bruce Wayne's recent court case involving Mr. Freeze. Something is rotten in Gotham, and you can still smell it, even if it's on ice!

i didn't have the highest expectations, but i did hope it'd to be better than this.
the art is really stunning. once again Lee Bermejo has to carry Azzarello's 'meh' writing.
without a good story to compliment the art this comic feels empty.

for the high price point, i'm not sure if it's even worth continuing with the single issues,
or if it's better to maybe wait for th more

There is no doubt about that. But whether Batman finally snapped his scrawny neck or some other sinister force in Gotham City did the deed is still a mystery.

Bermejo’s art work is a 10 outta 10. Azzarello’s writing was bit meh. Not terrible but I was expecting a little more. Still fully on board with this series though.

Overall, a good story. It lost points for misuse of “you’re” instead of “your” on page 29. Gordon to Batman: “I’m sure you’re (sic) presence is needed elsewhere.”

It should read either: “you’re needed elsewhere” or “your presence is needed elsewhere.”
