This was fine but I do really just feel like I've read porn. Until the very end, at least. But I guess I'll continue to read it so that probably says something about me.

Faithless #1

By: Brian Azzarello, Maria Llovet
Released: Apr 10, 2019

Faith. Sex. The Devil.
Faith likes to dabble with magic. Her friends think it's cute-and not just a little off-putting, but it's part of her charm and her warped search for purpose in a world that makes too much sense. But she's a true believer and knows there is a power within her reach. She's right, of course. It just took a while for that ma...

A solid issue. More of an action issue than anything, but it was entertaining enough. I don't know how to feel about that one moment from Avengers being completely lifted for this issue, only instead of cops, it's prisoners. Part of me thinks there's something the writer was trying to say with that, but another part of me thinks it's just there and that's all it is.

myconius - Jun 21, 2019

i'm definitely in agreement with Darkseid24 here. Batman is DC's biggest cash cow, and they handed it to someone that doesn't understand or respect the character or his mythology. he's too busy breaking the character down, to the point of not being recognizable anymore. and he never shows the slightest inkling that he'll ever build him back up. Batman is supposed to be the ideal. the peak of human performance both physically and mentally. but NOT Tom King's Batman. his Batman is pathetic.

Surprise, surprise, I didn't hate it. That's something.

Half of the comic is unnecessary, empty filler, hence the lowered score, but once the action picks up, it's readable, and makes you want to quickly pick up the next issue to see where it all leads. The last time I felt like this while reading King's comic, was probably during... I Am Bane story arc?

They’ve been a joke for years. Hell, Darkseid tried to get Superman to make a porno with Big Barda. Mr Miracle was used as comic relief in the JL international. Morrison had Turpin contain Darkseid.
