I liked this but I feel cheated by it. The last page from the last issue proposed an encounter with Darkseid. No such thing happened here. Both stories are good but I hate it when writers bait people to buy their books. I'm giving it 7.5 not just for this issue but overall because this series was pretty good from the beginning and who knows when the next Batman/Superman book will come out given DC more

Still one more issue, but it's a Mxy issue... the Darkseid stuff is continuing in the Joshua Williamson stories it seems. If you look at last issue, it says the Annual will continue the filmverse stuff and then there is the seperate epilogue with Darkseid.

@Weird Sciene Jim I can agree with you (at least to an extent). I'm a first-time Nightwing reader and I've been loving it so far. I appreciate the love Dick Grayson is getting so far in this series but I think now is the time to see him go through some tough obstacles and challenge the hero.

Not gonna get deep into the Afghanistan pullout because nuance is dead here, but "Afghani" is a currency. Calling the Afghan people "Afghanis" is basically telling everyone in the room that you don't know anything about the conflict.

I never want to hear the name Ric or Dickie Boy ever again! I don’t think AT&T has anything to do with this book not hitting, except that a tynion seems to think that If he creates a 1000 characters, he might get tv show or movie out of it. As far as Snyderverse in comics, I don’t want that either. Scarecrow was presumed dead in A-Day, but escaped.

I apologize for bringing you such bad memories, if we all hate Ric and Dickyboy, a good drama thrown away. It's true Tynion's obsession about creating nonsensical characters is terrifying and I mean Snydercut as such and I don't want it in a comic either, it makes me sick when a series or movie changes the direction of the comics.

I think James Tynion got bitten by radioactive exposition when he was a youth.

Because that's what his stories boil down to. Tons of exposition where he builds and builds his world. The action is an afterthought that mostly takes place off stage.

The result are stories that go nowhere, aren't interesting to read once everything is done and depends on his characters.

Yes, I agree with you @Mingthemerciless in regards to Tyrion compulsively and carelessly playing characters. I think Gosthmaker lacks a lot to be Deathpool hahaha your comment was funny. And to my liking being that Tynion is doing a lot of damage to Batman.

fenixalasnegras - May 12, 2021

Personally, I think that DC is experimenting and what they are doing is very messy and desperate. And I don't understand why Tynion is doing a decent job on the Joker and not Batman. Zdarsky may be balancing DC's books a bit, but the idea of ​​putting in bad stories to drive up prices from my perspective only ruins the book.

This is honestly mostly a good issue. The only problem I really have with it is the stuff that directly sets up the Future State story that I hated. John and the thousand Green Lanterns exploring unknown space should be exciting, but I know where that leads and it's suuuuuper boring. Then the power battery blows up... Oh God, I'm having Future State PTSD, please stop. It's a shame because the rest more

Much like with the rest of Infinite Frontier, we are seeing concepts that were introduced in future state appear now.

Weird Science Jim - May 9, 2021

I agree with that, I was not a fan of the GL Future State book and I wish we would just avert FS right now because things are already feeling stale overall

I think I would like this comic a lot more if it was just Cafu's art without Cantwell's stupid dialogue. Why does Marvel hate Tony Stark so much and why do they always give the Iron Man book to writers who clearly hate the character? That said, I liked seing all of these vintage IM villains and I'm really glad War Machine is back. I can't stress enough how good the artwork is.

I like the grounded tone, but it always feels like Cantwell is more concerned with being smart and clever than telling a good story.

Merlyn - May 10, 2021

Definitely felt that with his Doctor Doom, too, which was even worse. It doesn't fill me with confidence that he's going to write United States of Captain America. After Coates I really want to read again a good Captain America story.

"Communism is the future - for us and the world" Busiek really lost it, he should tell that to the face of the people of Vietnam, Laos or Cambodia, see how that would go down. I get he feels the need to be hip with all the young people who stupidly believe in a system that has failed time and time again and has killed millions of people but he can do that another way. Other than that, the book has more

Didn't know the stuff about Sin-Cong. I don't know if they're the villains, so far the story just threw off some breadcrumbs, it's pretty early to assume anything. The Khruul guy does seem to be the villain, but the guy that uttered that line doesn't appear in the story anymore. I just found weird the adding of the "and the world" part, I wouldn't have raised the issue if it would've stopped before that. Maybe I'm reading a little too much into it but I still find the line pretty weird.

Weird Science Jim - May 7, 2021

They are classic characters that have been part of the Sin-Cong stuff in the past. It's just a play on the origins of what ended up being a Communist nation in the MCU
