THE GOOD:

-The art is still fantastic, surprisingly enough. I love how Brad Walker draws Doctor Phosphorus.

-This issue fixes the pacing issue of the previous two issues. It's not rushed and thankfully it doesn't slow down so much that it becomes boring. Just the right pace.

-Damian is still the best here. Funny, badass, just everything.

Agreed.

i actually really liked the reveal of the identity of Arkham Knight. she is a direct descendant of Amadeus Arkham. so if you've read A Serious House on Serious Earth, there is significant history there.

i am really glad the Arkham Knight wasn’t who i thought it was.

Awful issue. Does King ever research the characters he is writing or does he just force his story on them? I’d say the latter.

The problem with this book is that you can’t apply social and gender issues that plague humanity to literal gods of evil. The fact that Darkseid is reduced to a “rapist” and “misogynistic boss” makes him less interesting and ruins his character. Even if he rapes people (which he probably does), the others in his Elite would probably applaud him for it. They probably rape people too. >
If any of the Female Furies were groped on Apokolips, they would kill the groomer in a second. The Furies are a group of psychopaths and sadists who murder people for fun. This book is a complete joke. more

It's a short mystery Crisis story... in league with something like Identity Crisis, but much better so far. This story has far more personality, while balancing its dramatic themes well and clearly with imposing force. But, if you hate the characterizations I guess there would be no saving this one for you. I just think writers should have a chance to work with characters that are more malleable, and not bound by other interpretations in such a rigid way.

Darkseid24 - Jan 3, 2019

In my opinion Identity Crisis is a far better story than HiC. Identity Crisis qquestioned the heroes methods, but there is no real plot in HiC yet apart from deaths for shock value.
