Oh no! Characters are acting out of character in an out-of-continuity series. The horror!

Another nearly perfect issue gets yet another 10. It will have you questioning yourself and in a state of confusion up until the very end. When you get there it all comes together beautifully. Smallwoods are plays both a narrative and visual role in this aspect of the story, in the best way.

This series has no right being as good as it is. This has continued to exceed my expectations more

This book has been great, but for some reason, people just don’t seem to realize it’s a Black Label book, which means this shit just isn’t in continuity. This has loose connections to JLI, but that’s it, and it’s not like you have to even read JLI to enjoy this. And no, King did not "ruin" Martian Manhunter this issue. Human Target is an-out-of continuity Noir detective story. Characters more

Like you said, DC Black Label = not in continuity. I only care about how well the story is told.

Toonstrack - Feb 24, 2022

Correct. And even beyond that, these are dynamic characters you can do many things with. Continuity gets rebooted every once in a while anyway. These characters can fit this role beautifully. I dont even feel MM was ruined here or disrespected. They just added a wrinkle in his narrative is all.

Holy shit!

This is how you do it! This how you deliver exposition while progressing the story in a meaningful way. The way the issue unravels itself is brilliant. It might be a bit confusing at the start but by the end when you start to understand what is going on, it’s so satisfying. What a banger!

This is the first time I haven't given a ten on an issue, but thats a factor of how fantastic the other issues are, not how bad this one is. Because this one is so fantastic.

“I’ve got a friend coming who might be able to help. Should be here any minute.”

This - alongside “The Long Halloween” - is absolutely without a doubt my favourite Batman story. An old story told in a modern and refreshing way, no wonder it’s as influential as it is. A must read.

“Ladies. Gentlemen. You have eaten well.”

Seeing Bruce learning his craft is really exciting. Miller’s ability to script action scenes is almost unmatched and with Mazzucchelli bringing those scenes to life it’s almost too good to be true. Amazing.
