Bland and lifeless. Johns once again proving that he can't write Batman for shit. His dedicated fanboys might spam this with 10s and send death threats to anyone who disagrees, but bad writing is bad writing.

Harvey Dent is dead. Or is he?
A gang of thieves thrusts Gotham City into a state of fear when they are mysteriously well-armed with military-grade weapons: flamethrowers, grenade launchers, and even tanks.
And this gang claims it is funded by none other than former district attorney Harvey Dent.

@ComickerPerson - I'm curious, why is it "bland and lifeless"/ bad writing? Genuinely asking and hope you respond (articulately). I'm go'n give you the benefit ot the doubt and ignore @daspidaboy and @VicSav's claims you're biased (meaning I'm not going to check your past ratings of GJ's comics). That said, HARD disagee with your review. Think this book (and the volumes before) are well written and serve as an interesting take on the Bat-Universe/Mythos. Each instalment has been a great....

...addition and showed organic growth of the characters/ world involved. The spin on these characters are also interesting. Having read a Batman who is arguably "more than human" for way too long, it's great to have a version that is closer to the "original concept". Earth-One Batman is definitely my favorite Batman (at least for now) and would love to have more, though I do fear that more may result in an implosion. Just like the Ult. Universe.

Hey M, saw your review of the new Nightwing book. I'm intrigued - what do you like in your comic books/ what monthly books do you genuinely enjoy reading? When I see such reviews on books I think are pretty good, I wonder if I'm reading through rose-colored glasses. (Didn't want to ask this as a comment on the review to avoid people butting in and making it a thing).

Why the literal fuck does Thor need to BREATHE? He's a god who took on powerful beings, yet he cant breathe or hit Hulk.

Why does Black Panther deal more damage to Immortal Hulk than Thor? Seriously, are these people giving out high marks to Marvel Comics because they hate DC comics or something?

Seems like you need a hug.

What do you mean? Thor has always had to breathe. He hits Hulk multiple times. Black Panther stabs and cuts off his hand. Thor beats him with and cuts off his hand. Could you not see it through your tears?

I definitely loved it, but the only thing that bothered me or maybe it will be because as I have said, I've been out of the Marvel for a while. But the change to sexual preference because making changes just to increase sales that makes me uncomfortable, it doesn't feel original. If I'm in a mistake and the character was bi, before all progressive exaggeration came down on us, please illustrate more

*The review where he's anti-Semitic is Rasiel's though he still inserted himself in a conversation he had nothing to do with AFTER he blocked me because he didn't want to hear my opinions that differed from his.

I'd recommend everyone go read that comment chain. If you think I'm anti-semitic after reading that, well... I'm not very concerned with what you think.

Complete and utter bullshit, even King fanboys MUST see this, he just ripped you off of nine issues' worth of money for a farce! And he turned Adam Strange into a villain after he did the same to Wally West! Why does DC lets this guy get away with this kind of stuff? He's not Alan Moore and HE NEVER WILL BE BECAUSE HE SIMPLY LACKS THE TALENT AND SKILL.

Strange Adventures #10

By: Tom King, Mitch Gerads
Released: May 26, 2021

Once upon a time on Rann, Adam Strange made a deal with his neighbors and foes to take a stand against the invading Pykkts. Now, on Earth, he is trying to do the same thing: to get all the heroes to rise as one to keep the marauders from doing to his home planet what they already did to his adopted one. But the original deal was a devil’s bargain...

I enjoyed the Mr. Miracle from FS so I was looking forward to this. I couldn't be more disappointed. Another race-baiting comic that at times was actually pretty racist. And after the cliffhanger, I'm sure it will get even worse.

I may have read too much into that but it's not the first time I've read a race-baiting comic from Easton, he did it in Superman Red and Blue too. Thing is, I actually think he's not a bad writer so when he doesn't use his talent and does this sort of thing it's even more annoying. I'm just disappointed because I was hoping this comic wouldn't take this easy route.

Mr. White - May 26, 2021

Ok, fair enough. And I DO see your point because the "You're Normal" comment initially did have me thinking "huh?" and truth be told I DID read it in the context of his race before brushing it aside and thinking otherwise. Perhaps that may be considered "race-baiting" but I'm no expert on the subject. On Eaton's other writing that has same tropes, I can't comment on. But yeah, just seems like the issue wasn't your cuppa tea for the reasons you gave. Which is fine.

Liking this run so far. It's dirty and violent, perfect for a Wolverine series. It also is bringing something new which I was hoping for this new X-Men status quo, leaving Wolverine more and more alone away from the X-Men. Some of his best stories come from his solo series, I think he works much better as a solo character than as part of an ensemble. The art is also fantastic, Bogdanovic reall more

It's ironic. While I get that Logan sells (which is paramount), I was one of the more vocal people against him having yet another solo series. Chalk it up to being oversaturated pre-DoW & the multiple versions during his "absence". That said, I enjoyed this issue way more than the first 3 combined. And the art? A welcome gear shift. Indeed Logan works so much better as a solo character and more importantly, detached from the X-men/everyone. Aaron's The Adamantium Men is a prime example of this.

jokerman, I've been getting numerous complaints about your conduct on the site. It's created a level of antagonism that goes against the spirit of what I want the site to be and is affecting others' enjoyment of the site. I have no way of knowing if you read all the issues you review, but please only review issues you've read. And for the issues you have read and would like to review, there's a 20 point scale you can use to give a more evolved rating rather than reducing issues to either Masterpiece or Trash. That kind of reductive rating style is not only insulting to others who’ve enjoyed the issues you’ve labeled as Trash, but can either boost or bomb an issue's rating unfairly, which in turn causes our aggregate community ratings for each issue to mean less. This site is built on the contributions of all of us, so please consider the effects your contributions have on the site and the community that enjoys being here. If not, I have no problem with removing your account.
