A slightly anticlimactic ending for my taste. I think it reflects, for better and for worse, every stage of Tom King with this superhero. In general I enjoyed the whole story, seen as a set, which in the end became repetitive, that is not disputed, best of all, the great artists who collaborated with King.

I always felt like DCEASED was released a decade too late. If it came out during The Walking Dead craze, it may have been a zeitgeist classic, encapsulating everything about the zombie fad. In 2020, though, I feel fatigued, bored of this theme, since ultimately it always boils down to characters looking for a safe place that soon turns out to be unsafe, rinse and repeat, accompanied with random ma more

Off to a pretty great start. Funny enough even though Tom King is known for deconstruction of a character, this is the closest thing to silver age Adam Strange since his solo series in the 90s' changed his appearance and totally retcons his supporting cast's motives for the worse.

Tynion's run is gaining momentum every month. Contrary to Tom King, he wants to tell an actual story, and does exactly that, one issue at a time. And what did he serve us this time? Plenty of action from two different points of view - Batman's as well as Catwoman's.

After a pretty bland issue, we get an issue full of action and excitement.

The issue starts with The Joker explaining to a bartender what happened in the last issue, like a recap, except that this time it was from his point of view and it was written like it was a joke, it was pretty great. Tynion really knows how to write The Joker.

Wow, what a way to start the series.

The first issue already deals with heavy themes like Facts vs Fiction that are super interesting in my opinion. Also, just like Mister Miracle, this issue creates a feeling of discomfort, making you question everything that you see which fits perfectly with what King is trying to do with this series.

I'm not gonna lie, the arc is growing on me so far. From a mediocre beginning, it evolves and grows, unraveling the bigger backstory underneath. While sure, this issue may have not pushed the main plot forward very much, it expands the concept of what it means to be a villain in Gotham City.

This is a fine, very safe, very by-the-numbers issue. Sometimes that can work, if the characters are written very well, but here it doesn't really become anything better. I have almost nothing to say about this one. At least Tom King's run was rife with things to talk about. This comic, right here, exists and that's it. If you like Batman existing, you'll be pretty much okay with this.

So we finally got some answers to our questions and... it was pretty underwhelming. Very simple and safe way to keep the story going. I don't think this is bad, just not anything to be excited about. There's really not much to talk about here, I honestly expected more.

Matter of opinion, I guess. I like it, it's good to watch something that doesn't require any thinking from time to time, and which doesn't try to be serious and pompatic, while being merely a soap opera with capes. Call it my guilty pleasure.
