I always try to base my final ratings on writer and series' standards, their potential and of course, my subjective perception of them. That being said, a 7.5/10, for someone like Peter J. Tomasi is definitely not a high score, even if normally it would be considered just good.

The problem lays in the fact not much really happens in this issue - yes, there's plenty of action, and multip more

He has to write more than 4 good issues to make me think he can do it long term. But Detective Comics is pretty good currently.

Nihilist - Feb 13, 2019

Yes, absolutely, consistently good writing is the key. This one wasn't bad, or even unenjoyable, but I had a feeling it's the weakest from the arc so far.

Frustrating...three key points:
- The arc has escalated significantly from the methodical pace of the first few pages.
- Some inner monologue text was not consistent with recent characterizations of Batman.
- Mahnke seemed to go from hyper-detailed to completely flat backgrounds in panels, and it seemed to vary more than your average DC issue. David Baron did a *wonderful* job color more

"What makes you think I'm afraid of Hell?!"

Only Batman can deliver lines like this and sound like a total badass doing it. And Pete Tomasi loves his Hellbat suit, doesn't he?

While the artwork and dialogue is pretty good this issue, for a four issue story, we really aren’t getting anything! The story is half over and feel like it just began. The mention of “venom” better trigger something in Batman to at least think of Bane as to if he has a role in this especially what’s been happening with him in his book.

this series continues to be very enjoyable.

i really enjoy Tomasi’s version of Batman.
he gives a great voice for Batman and continues to make him a bad-ass.

his Batman, Hellbat and Etrigan all looked great.

Flash's forensic skills are often sidelined in favour of his speed. He's fast, we know it, but he's more than that, and this crossover focuses on it a tiny bit. It's still not enough to portray him as a genuinely passionate, knowledgeable and experienced investigator, but at least it's a step in the right direction. Because despite Barry being all about speed, as I said a sentence ago, he's one of more

Long story short - it's not nearly as bad as the previous issue, but it's still borderline unreadable due to the awful accent gimmick Humphries, similarly to vast majority of Harley writers, can't stop overusing. And this time, I feel like there's no sentence spoken by Harl that's simply normal.

Yeah, that sounds bad. However, wasn't Renee Montoya a drunk in the comics at one point?

Nihilist - Feb 8, 2019

There was something with alcoholism now, when I try to remember it. Didn't her girlfriend leave her or something? Can't recall when did this happen, exactly. Still, though, to me it feels backwards - in my opinion it would be better if she was introduced as someone prior to hitting the rock bottom, like Bullock from Batman Earth One. This way people could actually emphatize with her and hope she'll get better instead of being introduced to a drunk from the get go.

Yikes, Deathstroke's run, one of the most consistent and tightest Rebirth series, seems to really lose its grip. I didn't enjoy the entire Arkham arc, which not only was super convoluted, but also changed the series' established tone, introducing odd Deadpool inspired comedy and surreal silliness.

Soooooo, this sucked. It's like Tom King couldn't figure out how to connect all of his poorly written stories so they called someone else in to do it and they had to make due with what they had. While this Batman has shown more emotion in this issue that King's has in maybe the whole run, it is still poorly executed. The ending was a nice surprise though.
