Bit high on the teen angst side but the art and the story more than make up for it.
I love how King wasn't subtle about hating Jon's age up which to this day remains to be one of the worst decisions DC has ever made.

Lol fuck Talia, she was the worst here and she somehow comes out of this event completely unscathed. Destroyed a whole city to appease her greed and insecurity but somehow Geoforce is wrong to avenge the million deaths at her hands.

Geoforce did nothing wrong, what he was doing was justice.

The Pariah and Dick and Jon stories are the only things worth reading from this book. Quite a disappointing issue, I'm concerned for how Dark Crisis is going to pan out.

Incredible arc, had me on the edge of my seat. A thrilling experience, it was shocking, scary and somehow stuck its landing too. Wish this would be animated someday but I can see it being too much for even an R rated animation.

Another top notch issue with great drama and a great introduction of characters. Love how alpha Clark and Zala are.

I hope this story isn't going to be as predictable as it's shaping up to be, looks like Bruce is going to be the banished bastard son when the Els find out who he is and he'll end the war with a mega climactic fight against Clark.

Beautiful art aside, taking Batman away from Gotham is a fantastic decision. The story needed something fresh and this is looking to be exactly what it needs, new locale(s), the underused Batman inc and some good old mystery/ detective work. Batman has outgrown Gotham and this was well illustrated by how he made short work of his A list villains during the first few pages.

Good on Will more

I take back what I said. Once you reread/binge this series everything hits harder.

There's really not a bad thing about this event, it has a fantastic cast of characters with interesting dynamics, incredible art, great villains and it treats DC's history with a sincerity and seriousness that I feel hasn't been done well in the Metal series at all. In fact, I'd argue that Metal joked ar more

I don't see the hype about this. It's okay, it's well made and well paced but it completely lacks any sort of emotional core/depth for me to be invested in this story.

The characters lack so much oomph here, I don't see myself rooting or caring for any of them. And I get it, it's supposed to be "the return of the Justice Society/ Incarnate" but I need a bigger reason than that for me t more

This series has been great so far, it's given the spotlight to many lesser known/ basically obsolete characters and has been an amazing palate cleanser after the insanely bombastic and tiring Metal series.
