it's sad to see what passes for a Batman comics these days.
for a comic that was twice the length, it sure was a whole lot of nothing.
this comic tried to be trippy, adventurous, and i'm guessing poignant,
but it just came off as - "who gives a crap?"
Tom King feebly trudges his way to the finish line.

If you suffer from ADHD then this is the Annual for you. Instead of a stand alone story about ANYTHING, we get 3-4 page stories about nothing. Ohhhh look how different Batman has been over the years. That's not a story it's a comic version of a clip show.

This Annual issue did absolutely nothing to make me feel... anything. It exists, and that's all I can say about it. Maybe I grew so tired of Tom King, I simply can't force myself to experience any emotions reading his work. Not satisfaction and joy, not disappointment and anger. No - it's just nothingness, absolute black void.

Not as bad as Knightfall but not much better either. Again, a case of having so much potential to tell a story for an easy rewrite and completely botching the job on almost every level. The book reads almost like a flip book with very little character development other than to illustrate why Lois Lane has become almost completely unlikable not only in the current books but this one as well.

I expected what would happen in this issue. Part of the “bendis” method is to talk in circles around something without actually saying it so I was fully confident Leviathan’s identity would not be disclosed. I also called the end text of “Next: Leviathan Revealed”.

This issue’s dialogue was a chore to get through, completely irksome and most of all devoid of substances. Some more

This issue exists only to promote Naomi and draw people to that title. It’s hardly about Superman despite it being one of his main ongoings, as thusly I would not recommend it to anyone interested in him. Last issue was serviceable, this one is not.

As a Superman book it fails to deliver, it showcases him losing to a C-list villain only to have Naomi show him up and save the day. >
The art doesn’t really work and the dialogue contains some lines which are facepalm-inducing; a stand-out among them being Batman stating “I’m Batman” to have Naomi’s mother reply with “Damn right you are”. Has this man ever engaged in actual conversation.

The premise of the issue, red cloud being a threat, is laughable as she should hardly register within Superman’s radar. However, as he is wont to do bendis forces his creation’s to be the “best”. more
