I wanted to think the same, but since this story takes place 20 years in the future, I am still worried about how King will handle Wonder Woman

Well, I didn't expect other reviews from all the toxic spider fans, but for me the issue has been pretty good.

Amazing Spider-Man #26

By: Zeb Wells, John Romita Jr.

Now fully in the present, the Emissary has returned and his power is so far beyond Spider-Man's abilities. The heroes may figure out a way to win, but the cost of victory will be so immense that you may hope they don't...

It was prolly me just making a snap judgement then. I'm simply sick of everyone claiming something is "review bombed" when lots of ppl express dislike for something, but ignore that the perfect scores things get are review bombing in the opposite direction. It happens on games and movies too, just something that grinds my gears. I apologize if I took it wrong.

Weird Science Jim - Jun 1, 2023

there is always going to be toxic reactions (you could say both good and bad even) - the way to combat it is just to give your honest opinion and give reasons in your reviews of why you like or dislike something. Most toxic responses are vague, over-the-top statements with lots of exclamation points

this is honestly the first weak issue. I do like Tom Taylor as a person and writer, and I think his Nightwing run is great. However, my problem is that his run doesnt have a lot of meat or story in it, its just padding along and is just fluff. and there's nothing wrong with that, but it needs something more.

Nightwing #104

By: Tom Taylor, Travis Moore
Released: May 24, 2023

Nightwing and the Titans realize the only way to save Olivia is to...go to hell! Seeing how ineffective his punching was when he last confronted Neron's demons, Nightwing is temporarily powered up by magic in order to make it through the depths of hell alive...literally. Then, in the backup: Nightwing and Jon Kent find an important clue as to who's...

I have felt this for a while. Dick Grayson is my favorite character, but he needs to struggle a bit and the overall story needs to get some forward momentum

I know Tom Taylor fans will be in awe of this but I find his writing more and more juvenile as years pass by. Plus some decisions and lines here are completely wrong.

An incredibly heart-warming start to this new run of Nightwing. The issue has everything from amazing illustrations, colours and just as amazing writing. It even manages to plant seeds for the plot among all the emotion present in this issue.

A very good start with wonderful promise. It's a good time to be a Nightwing fan and a great starting point if you're looking to be one.

This is how King has Batman characters win. They get beat on and beat on, and once the attackers get all tuckered out from pummeling the victim, the victim then turns around, all bloody and beaten, and hits them once and they drop like a sack of potatoes.

Apparently, in King's world, there's not such thing as broken noses, concussions, internal bleeding , damaged backs, knees and hands. more

oh for pete's sake!!!
the painfully obvious back-peddaling that this issue starts with
just proves that Tom King had NO plan of what the heck he's doing.

King never bothered to read Flashpoint to learn that Thomas Wayne uses his guns
to make up for the fact that he lacks the years of training that Bruce had.
Tim Drake's lack of reflex skills was just LAUGHABLE!!! more

I'll be damned, I don't know what worse in this piece of filth of a comic - writing or art. It's bad on every considerable level, from the storytelling perspective, through dialogues, to sketches and inks. It's trash. Just trash.

Darkseid24 - Oct 22, 2019

I like majority of Black Label titles, but apart from the cursing nothing is in it, that justifies Black Label. Doug Moench wrote good stories& he wrote Detective Comics& Batman both for a while. So I think writers can, if they actually are talented enough.

I am lost. I have no idea who the killer really is. The characters are whacked out and comedic. Batgirl is working with Harley who I guess has never had her own story before according to King. Either has Blue Beetle, or any of them according to King.

Superman is on the cover screaming and isn’t in the issue at all. Maybe Gorilla Grodd will be o more

Turns out, there’s a better way of conveying someone’s emotional turmoil than stuttering, repetition and ellipses. Can someone forward that to King?

To spend longer than 5 minutes writing a review for this crap is 5 minutes too long, and I’ve already lost precious time reading the issue.

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.

Synthozoid - Feb 3, 2019

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