Yay! More useless garbage by Tom King. Again, please remove him from any of DC's main books!

Batman #74

By: Tom King, Mikel Janin
Released: Jul 10, 2019

"The Fall and the Fallen" concludes with a father-and-son showdown. Flashpoint Batman reveals his fiendish reasoning for dragging Batman into the desert, and who is in the coffin they've been dragging along with them. But is this a step too far? It's Bruce Wayne versus Thomas Wayne for the right to wear the cowl, and all of Gotham City hangs in the...

Justice League #27

By: James Tynion IV, Javi Fernandez
Released: Jul 3, 2019

Eons ago, the Monitor, the Anti-Monitor and the World Forger stopped the rise of Perpetua-but can they overcome billions of years of mistrust to work together and do it again? Plus, Lex Luthor's offers across the DC Universe haven't gone unnoticed-Martian Manhunter is aware of "the Offer." And J'onn J'onnz will pay the price.

Only time will tell if this event is based on a shallow gimmick, or is it something surprisingly deep and complex. Look at Injustice - a simple concept quickly evolved into a long multiversal conflict. DCeased has all the potential to become a new elseworldwith its own mythos, but it also can end up being a self contained one-off story.

The story didn't progress much in this issue, whic more

Fun issue with a great dynamic between the Spirit of Vengeance and the Dark Knight.

The colliding morals of the two characters reminds me a lot of that great Batman TBATB episode "The Chill of the Night", which featured Phantom Stranger and the Spectre himself.

NICE! at first i didn't realize you were referring to 'Batman: The Brave and the Bold'. i'd forgotten about that episode! i'll have to dig out the series and give it a watch! ...my only wish with that series is that they should have kept Dick Grayson as Robin throughout, and also not used the Earth 2 Robin costume.

Great issue. I really enjoyed Batman and Wonder Woman's debate over whether a team is needed to police magic. I also really liked Chaos Zatanna messing with the comic panels in a great callback to her fight with Zor in "Seven Soldiers: Zatanna #4".

The final icing on the cake would be Jason Blood now hosting the Demons Three. That's fucking awesome.

Hey guys. I'm not going to be doing a review for this issue, because I have gotten so tired of reviewing Tom King's Batman. I just wanted to let you know this was an awful issue, with no plot progression, awful dialogue, or lack thereof and really weak pencilling. The only good thing I can say about the issue is that Jordie Bellaire's colors are rather beautiful, but they don't salvage the issue.

THE GOOD:

-I've always liked Jorge Fornes' art.

-I mean, conceptually, having Bane's plan be interwoven into every issue thus far is good, but the execution is so weak.

Jorge Fornes is just creating the discount store-brand version of David Mazzucchelli's art. probably at the behest of Tom King. so much of King's run has felt like a bad Year One fan-fic. @ohhaimark - i totally agree about Mikel Janin. i tire at looking at his tracings of 3D poser figures.

This issue is supposed to explain Bane's plan, right? It doesn't. It just tells the reader what he did up to the wedding. Which is new information, technically, but all it does is tie events together by just saying "Bane Dun Did It". This plan makes sense if Bane is omniscient. There's understanding your enemy and there's... this. It's too absurd. This is the same trap Heroes in Crisis fell into. more

A wonderful segway into Snyder's "JL DoomWar" storyline. Jimenez knocks it out of the park with the page featuring Clark alongside both Jonathans. I hope that Luthor isn't a human/martian hybrid because it defeats the purpose of his character. I had the same problem with Omega-Luthor back in Darkseid War, but I trust Snyder will handle the concept better.
