I was hoping Batman would be set free of this torture but... Sigh. And what is this Child Batman? But no complain given, because execution, the artwork is quite great. The story though feels ridiculous but is rather great. I'm still excited for the next issues.

This Batman issue, the series as a whole, looks great, feels haunting and you just get chills by simply thinking of the issues that are to come. The ambience is done excellent. The Grim Knight and The Batman Who Laughs are spine-chilling.

Tensions run high on this issue. The Sanctuary nightmare is still not over and it pulls out another victim known as Gotham Girl, who's now the antagonist on this one. Batman and Flash crossover is going well, the tension is palpable between them. The story is simple and though the art looks awesome, it doesn't save the rather compulsive story. But our heroes, in this case, Batman is one to do mist more

Peeking into Jon Kent's life without his father to overshadow is a treat. Clark and Lois craving interest in their kid's life is great. It shows that they too can be like a normal family. Jor-El though, could use some cheer up. The story seems pretty simple but it's picking up layers as you go.

No matter who you are, it's heartbreaking to see our favourite heroes cry. Wonder Woman crying is just devastating, it made me feel devastated. But there is so much going in the now, that you might forget about it. Humans chaining up goddesses is a great metaphor if you can see it. Jesus Merino's artwork is up to notch. It compliments Wilson's above par story, which is in turn, hard to swallow and more

This New Avengers are unconventional and was unexpected for me. It was much fun, especially where Hulk intimidates the others, Rocket's antics, Hawkeye's swag, and many more. The story is a deep turn shining light on some of our Greek gods in a fictional way. It's amazing to say the least.

Carnero, thank you for making the best looking Carol Danvers. She looks like a dream, acts with a strength and her grace is awesome.
