Heroes in Crisis continues to be long and painful read, bastardizing everything its characters stand for, all in the name of barely coherent, incompetent deconstructionism.

King tries, and fails time and time again, to do what giants like Alan Moore (Watchmen, Miracle Man) did before him, taking the concept of a good superhero fighting bad super villains, and twisting it around, giving more

This is issue as well as the series was so disappointing. What readers will find is an issue that explains the entire story. Sounds great right? Wrong! A comic that felt like a mystery with clues sprinkled in along the way turned into a writer withholding information for 7 issues, giving absolutely no clues, so he can drag readers along to make them THINK it’s a mystery when in all actuality K more

Not too bad. It’s a quick read. It’s an easy read. Plus, it’s a reasonably interesting story about what Punisher would be doing during a war with mythical creatures. It made sense, logical, and something I could get behind. I’d like it better knowing if Frank stays true to himself at the end and wastes everyone who helped him. Then, this score may go up.

So, we're done with Knightmares. About damn time! What was the point of the entire arc, aside from being practically nothing but filler? I don't know, but comparing this week's issue with those preceeding it, I can confidently say it'd alone be enough. Yay, we got some predictable answers, and we got some, any, story progression. That's more than all previous issues combined.

This is a weird issue. It's all a dream, but it plays like it's a memory of one night.

Basically, Lois and Selina go to the Fortress of Solitude to have a girl's night out/bachelorette party.

The art is fun and nice. The hi-jinks are meant to be fun, and I can't say they're terrible, but they are sort of a 1980s thing. The jokey vibe doesn't fit with King's dour Batman.
