As a very shy, awkward person, i relate a lot with this book. It IS hard when you dont even know what youre doing in a place and people keep pushing you into other places/ directions.
Of course this book would be a comedy and i like that. Sometimes its nice to have the heroes, like the trinity, not being like a wall where no jokes can go through (when its done just well enough).

Maybe its a combination of not reading the original books, not respecting the legacy and what these characters stand for and trying just too damn hard to put their own voice into the story. So hard, it fails

If you thought only WB does not understand DC characters, as proven with multiple choices done in the DCEU (Riddler-Luthor, Harley and Joker both having tattooed faces, murdering Batman, TMNT Doomsday, etc.), read this comic and think again. Sigh, what a mess, where characters are merely one dimensional shells, and their stories are second to the pseudo-empowerment theme so unsubtle and ironically more

Looking through the preview along with reading the reviews has strongly confirmed my decision not to read this series...

Darkseid24 - Feb 6, 2019

It also has good parts I think. It just reduces the characters to one part of their characters, but they are way more complex. I still liked it way more than Darkseid War or Mr. Miracle.

Pretty decent issue. Lots of fun. The art is also pretty good. I hope all this build up and years worthy of story ends in a magical, glorious and brilliant way. My only problem with Metal was that the end felt rushed. Hope we dont see it happening all over again with the Totality/Perpetua saga.

I'm coming around to this book. Still upset about Wally. Superman's speech was very well written. If you don't feel the emotions in this chapter I don't know what to tell ya especially with the last page. Clay Mann may very well be one of the absolute best artists in the entire comic business.
