More of the same. Boring. Art is starting to look bad too. Can’t blame the artist for having to draw panel after panel of weak plot.

The dramatic conclusion to the series everyone is talking about! Featuring Punisher! Thanos! Punisher! AND Thanos! Plus a few more surprises, some terrible deaths...and maybe a little redemption? Sounds unlikely given who we're talking about.

Well, so much for this series. I really did my best trying to like this. I love Azzarello's Hellblazer run and I was hoping we'd be getting something more like that.

I don't know what so many see in this book. Sure it is "Darker" but that is supposed to allow for chances to be taken and to drive home a strong narrative but so far these books seem to only be about the high-quality art and the feel they want to create. The art masks the fact that the story is extremely weak. This series is not a Batman story in a darker universe but rather a darker universe that more
