Hey guys. I'm not going to be doing a review for this issue, because I have gotten so tired of reviewing Tom King's Batman. I just wanted to let you know this was an awful issue, with no plot progression, awful dialogue, or lack thereof and really weak pencilling. The only good thing I can say about the issue is that Jordie Bellaire's colors are rather beautiful, but they don't salvage the issue.

As a last-ditch effort to save his son from the lonely fate of being Batman, his father from another universe, Thomas Wayne, a.k.a. the Flashpoint Batman, is taking Bruce to the far ends of the Earth to try to give him the one thing that will c...

Whatever. I don't care. I feel like all of Thomas Wayne's plan up to this point was pointless. Why go through with any of Bane's plan if your entire plan, in the end, was to revive your wife and bring your family back together? It's not as though his connection with Bane is going to help any with Al Ghul, otherwise why are they being attacked in the desert by his guard? Maybe teaming up with someo more

i'm definitely in agreement with Darkseid24 here. Batman is DC's biggest cash cow, and they handed it to someone that doesn't understand or respect the character or his mythology. he's too busy breaking the character down, to the point of not being recognizable anymore. and he never shows the slightest inkling that he'll ever build him back up. Batman is supposed to be the ideal. the peak of human performance both physically and mentally. but NOT Tom King's Batman. his Batman is pathetic.

Agreed. And it seems most of modern writers have no respect for the characters.

After being off-planet for so long, the Justice League must try to pick up the pieces of their lives-but Lex Luthor has other plans. If he has his way, he'll show all of humanity that the Justice League will never be there in the world's time of need!

With a title like Superman Year One from DC’s Black Label I expected, with high hopes, for this comic to be independent and unalike compared to past origin stories. However, this issue proves to be a retelling of way too familiar tropes for the Man of Steel. We see Clark go to school as a child and go through the same routine of being classified as different and struggling to hold back his power more

Is this comic even necessary, to be honest? How many times can the same story be re-told? I'm fine with modernizations and minor tweaks to make origin stories more actual and relevant, but if I got to be honest, I'd rather read Earth 1 alternate retelling, taking creative risks, than deal with something that's neither old nor new, contantly being held by canon's restrictions.

I came for Crazy Steve, but what I got was Steve From Accounting.

This was dull and underwhelming mess with some odd and dated dialogue and views of women thrown in for good measure.
Yes, I know that this is an Elseworld and is supposed to be the origin story for a younger version of Miller's Dark Knight Superman, but I have to say that this still didn't feel like a Superman s more
