Red Hood and the Outlaws #40

By: Scott Lobdell, David Messina
Released: Nov 27, 2019

After their first mission in the field, all the Outlaws want is to head back to the Block for some R&R. Unfortunately, no sooner do they get home than they find themselves under assault from Shay Veritas' clones! It's like Night of the Living Duplicates in there, and Red Hood is nowhere to be found. Is he teaching them a dangerous (but hopefully va...

By: Neal Adams

Mikel Janin's art gets drowned by bad plotting. Alfred's death has zero emotional impact because it happened two months ago and even before it happens we know it won't stick because of Doomsday Clock and the upcoming Crisis. Alfred deserves better. Murdering characters is Tom Kings "thing". But as with every storytelling tool it must be used sparingly or else it ends up being a joke. How many char more

Batman #83

Superheroes for Hire - Nov 27, 2019

He is not actually a good writer. He's written maybe 2 or 3 good short stories.

Rascal4Hire - Nov 28, 2019

I think he's a good writer. I've enjoyed his stories in the past and Batman till around #30 or something like that. After that it all went downhill.

Heroes In Crisis #7

By: Tom King, Clay Mann
Released: Mar 27, 2019

Now Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman must face off with their own creation-and face the consequences for what they created. Also, as the truth is un...

Or minus 1
I've been very supportive of Tom King which was a mistake. I dropped Heroes In Crisis but kept buying his Batman. Supporting him. This is the issue where it's obvious that the writer doesn't care, the editor doesn't care, the artist doesn't care.
Nobody cares but they still ask for our money. Huge plot holes covered with cringy excuses and dialogue.

Made an account just for this series. 32 year old with depression. Been fighting it my whole life. This book and especially the last two issues caused me to feel real shitty about it, spending my money to read this pile of crap. I've supported Tom King in everything he's done so far. But this is shit. From the treatment of characters I love and care to how mental health is portrayed in the book. I more

Heroes In Crisis #5

Released: Jan 30, 2019

The secrets of the DC Universe are hacked! Sanctuary wasn't supposed to keep records, but now that the A.I. is compromised, superhero secrets are leaking all over the 'Net. Booster and Harley set aside their differences to focus on who they believe is the real killer (assuming one of them isn't lying, that is). Meanwhile, Batman and the Flash conti...

I keep reading it, because it affects so many characters. Could be true, but isn’t PTSD reliving trauma through flashbacks? I don’t think that was shown in any issue. As a fan of the villains& I’m reading comics just because of them, I don’t think they need to be aspirational, but that’s only my opinion. I understand if people have other expectations than me.

"I've battled with my thoughts, battled with my sexuality, I want both depicted correctly." How can King possibly depict your exact experiences?
