This book really pulled it together in the end. It feels like some contemporary horror you would see on HBO.

It seems like this is going to be the big finale and that makes me a little sad. Hopefully Grant Morrison decides to do a Season 3.

This could have been so much better had it had a segment for each JL member, instead it retreads on old ground and doesn't say anything new about Batman.

This felt so grounded. Almost like a Nolan version of what Adam Strange could be. With every issue the story escalates further and you can just feel the tension with every appearance of Adam and Alanna as the investigation goes on in the background. Doc Shaner and Mitch Gerads both kill it as always.

Throughout this series Alanna has felt very cold and scary, but given the past story an more

I only read the Dark Ages half. Dark Ages is looking to be Marvel's version of Injustice and the teaser tells us that by showing that nobody is safe. Unfortunately on its own the teaser is a little barebones, but Injustice fans know we are in for something incredible.

Anyone who gets mad at character development that they won't agree with, stay away from this. However, I found the conclusion to this story pretty satisfying. It makes sense that Alfred being killed in front of Damian would have such a negative effect on him. He is only 13 years old. I'm interested to see this new direction he will go, and for any Damian fans upset... don't worry the status quo wi more

This is my review of the entire arc. So this is a weird one... it isn't really a good story, or that well executed, but I can already tell it will be a very memorable one for how much of a thinking man's comic it is. It asks the question of many differing viewpoints and what the best course of action is. Immediately it is clear who Simon Spurrier's favourite Justice Leaguer is, as it is quite clea more

This is my review for the entire arc. So one thing immediately clear to me is that there are certain things Vendetti does better than Snyder with the JL and that is their personal relationships. Snyder wrote Batman and Superman's relationship fantastically, but kind of didn't touch on the rest of them as a web of friends. This is kind of what Snyder's time on JL was missing since it was more of an more
