YourGreenMuse dropped Basketful of Heads from their pull list May 27, 2020

Basketful of Heads

The rain lashes the grassy dunes of Brody Island, and seagulls scream above the bay. A slender figure in a raincoat carries a large wicker basket, which looks like it might be full of melons... covered by a bloodstained scrap of the American flag.
This is the story of June Branch, a young woman trapped with four cunning criminals who have snat...

Not a good issue. Seriously, this title should've stayed dead after Orlando's run, because since then it has played piggyback to whatever event was going on at the time and now it has barely anything to say as it drudges through its last few issues. I don't blame Jody Houser for this. Or Marc Andreyko before her. I know they can write good comics. I blame the editorial mandate that this book must more

This was fine, but I don't have much to say about it. And it's good to know the editors don't care enough to proofread the comics anymore. See: that page where Reverse Flash and Flash were suddenly switched.

Paradox accomplished his mission to make everyone see the Flash as a monster-and now Flash and the Reverse-Flash are trapped in a 25th century Central City that hates the Flash family and legacy.
