Female Furies #1

All their lives the Female Furies have been raised to be the meanest, most cunning and most ruthless fighting force on all of Apokolips. So why are Granny Goodness' girls left behind every time the men go to war? With the might of New Genesis hanging over the planet, and the Forever People making mincemeat out of Darkseid's army, Granny thinks it's...

this has absolutely nothing to do with where the last issue left off.

Guillem March's art is always nice, but this series has zero consistency as far as story.

points had to be subtracted after finding out this was going to be a cross-over.

While this Batman/Flash crossover doesn't capture my attention and imagination nearly as much as The Button did, I can't say it's bad. At least so far. It's readable, and that's certainly an improvement over regular Batman comics written by Tom King, but being readable isn't enough for me to recommend it.

For the most part, the comic tries to be a sort of duct tape, sticking previous ev more

It’s a welcome change from the ongoing arc before it at least. Like you said nothing particularly spectacular but also not really bad. It’s above average and could improve in subsequent issues, but definitely not as hyped as “The Button”.

God I hate Morrison on this title. It's filled with a bunch of uninteresting nonsense that really just left me realizing that I'd never get that time back. I honestly don't know what people see in his writing but for me, he's barely a step above Tom King on my list of terrible writers.

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.

@Superheroes for Hire I wouldn't say postmodernism or nihilism has no place in superhero comics. My problem is that King is attempting to say something profound here merely by saying heroes are damaged. Just having Harley Quinn say Joker hits her isn't inherently deep.

This is such an awful attempt at trying to say something profound. It's extremely clear that Tom King doesn't really understand how things like PTSD and trauma, in general, work. And every time he attempts to comment on it, it just comes across like a college thespian trying to impress everyone and show how smart and deep they are. It's a joke.

I keep reading it, because it affects so many characters. Could be true, but isn’t PTSD reliving trauma through flashbacks? I don’t think that was shown in any issue. As a fan of the villains& I’m reading comics just because of them, I don’t think they need to be aspirational, but that’s only my opinion. I understand if people have other expectations than me.

To get to a terrible comic writer's house.

Heroes in Crisis is just plain bad. It may feature some very solid artwork, but the story is so painfully boring, disjointed, pseudo-intellectually "deep" and in many cases out of character, it basically could be summarized with all the jokes, mockery and criticisms of New-52 era of DC Comics.
