I think a lot of people are blinded by their hatred towards Tom King and his... erm. Disastrous Heroes in Crisis. And believe me, I am not pleased at what came out of that series, either. I'm also really mad at him for how he wrote that story. It ultimately left a lot of soreness. However, I try not to look at the writer, but the story. And what I see is a pretty good story.

I see that more

Batman #76

By: Tom King, Tony Daniel
Released: Aug 7, 2019

"City of Bane" continues! Bane has taken over Gotham City, and Batman is nowhere to be found. At least, not a Batman anyone recognizes. Flashpoint Batman is now patrolling the city, dispensing a violent brand of justice and taking out rogue villains who haven't yet signed on with Bane. It's all building to a rebellion among the bad guys who don't w...

I don't think everyone who hates it is joining a bandwagon, that would totally discredit one side. I have noticed the comic community is very mob-like though. Such as when people were seriously saying every single Rebirth book was great (which started on YouTube) or that every single Marvel book is bad, or that Bendis and Tom King are ruining DC... etc. etc. It is all mob rhetoric. You hear the exact same things said practically word for word around the internet.

perhaps there might be some truth in those words. Bendis and Tom King ARE ruining DC. ...but if you want to dispute that people online all say the same thing, i don't go out of my way to cut up Bendis. as much as i don't care for what Bendis is doing to Superman it's not my favorite character. Tom King on the other had is destroying Batman, my favorite character. so i call him out for it. as for everyone praising every single Rebirth book, those are just deluded fanboys, drunk off hype.

Great ending to Year One of the Flash, and what a cool story! They finally found a good, if brief, way to connect Wally and Wallace together, and honestly, I love it! Chapter one was great, overall, and I enjoyed pretty much every second of it. The art overall was great, too, though there were moments where Wally and Wallace looked a bit weird. Maybe Porter should stick to older people, I don't th more

"The Flash Year One" finale! This oversize anniversary issue marks the end of Barry Allen's journey to become the Flash-but at what cost? The Turtle's final play will challenge our hero in every way possible, and by the end of the battle, a Flash will be born-and a Flash will die! Also in this issue, witness Lex Luthor's offer to Captain Cold, whos...

After all those plot-driven stories that take up... ahem. 85 issues. I think it's high time we took a little break from it. And what better way than a classic Joker and Batman story?

Honestly, Tomasi is really breaking through to me as a great Detective Comics writer. He nails the Joker, and even brings back the classic one-shot comics. It felt nostalgic (ah, who am I kidding, I'm only more

You know a comic is good when it makes you laugh out of genuine comedy. So far, Bendis has delivered very well.

Young Justice is something that is meant to be a comedy, and none of it gets cringy or otherwise wants to make you smash your head into a nearby wall. It's really good, and now that the comic is out of Gemworld, the team is now out to the multiverse. For the ones who have gone more

I know I love books when I get to laugh at them, cry at them, rage at them... you get the drill. And this one just made me laugh plenty of times.

I love the interactions with the team as a whole. We haven't quite gotten to individual to individual relationships, but hey, if I'm guessing correctly, we have plenty of time! Those awkward moments when the characters don't say anything feels more

Fan-favorite artist Elena Casagrande also joins the team as she delivers...

I'll be honest. A lot of people who are criticizing this particular issue seem to complain that the arc is moving too slowly. Just a reminder that this issue isn't plot driven: it's character driven. Yes, I'll admit, this whole series is, overall, plot-driven. But two of the issues were supposed to drive into the characters, and I think 3 and 6 were meant to do that.

So let's talk about more
