This is a rock solid issue and Miracle Molly is the most interesting new batman character in years

Its sad that Batman fans have been reduced to clamoring for mindless fight scenes instead of actually world building and plot that JT3 is doing.

Holy crap.

Lemme preface by saying I'm a religious person and a HUGE Nightcrawler fan since childhood so maybe im biased.

This issue is nearly flawless and a must read, especially for many who have been detractors of this whole Krakoa story.

Nightcrawler has discovered that with the mutants conquering death, they have begun to devalue their life. He seems no moral more

This issue is largely a standalone and primer for the war of the bounty hunters even coming. And as you can tell by the cover it features bossk heavily.

Now Bossk is one of my favorite SW character of all time despite having less than two hours of actual screen time in any Star Wars media.

This is also arguably the most page time hes gotten since the comics relaunch.

Fun fact: Frank Miller told King a story from his youth - he was invited to a real life seance conducted by Otto Binder (comic pro) for his deceased daughter. The encounter had a long-lasting impression on Frank and his story forms the basis of this book.

Coming to this issue, it's gonna get people talking that's for sure - but I liked it.

This doesnt deserve all the 1 star reviews but this also probably the weakest issue yet. Kings writing in this is VERY slow moving, and sometimes not very clear. Dialogue from different timeliness are dispersed throughout with the art and scene not always matching the timeline. It could be done well but in this issue it just isn't. The narrative here is still intriguing though and the art remai more

This was a class about Katana and Asian-American history, and it was one of the best classes I have ever taken. The vocabulary is great, in this issue Ridley used more words than any other DC writter has used in the last years. The art by Camuncoli is the perfect mashup of 80s and 2000s. Read this, You'll not regret it.

What an Issue!

Other History is not a classic superhero book. Tatsu narrates years of her life. Just like the prior Issues the narration style offers a unique insight into DC's long publishing history.

Ridley doesn't shy away from calling out creative decisions, which he addresses as the in-universe choices they ultimately end up being.

This was, like the first in this series, excellent. (I didnt read the second one but might come back around)


Katana is the focus here, and Ridley proves himself highly capability of writing "real" characters. His voice for Katana just like it was for Black Lightning is crisp, concise, realistic, flawed even. You'll disagree with Katanas views in this book sometimes. But that's more

This does the whole radicalization thing that Punchline tried to do, but better. But I guess Punchline was going for a newer, internet addled sort of indoctrination, versus this more classic form of it. But still this did it better. Again, I try not to think of this comic as something related to Watchmen, and I find myself enjoying it. I feel like that's how this book should be read.
