Merlyn reviewed Justice League #65 Jul 20, 2021

Justice League is the perfect example of the chaos at DC Comics. Now I'm not a big Didio fan but at least when he saw the Batman ship sinking with Tom King, he pulled the plug on it(not that Tynion is any better). But here Bendis is let loose to pull down the JL into the abyss of his career. Sure, Didio has a good amount of blame for this too since he thought it would be a great idea to bring Bend more

What if DC gave Bendus the Naomi book he clearly is solely interested in and got a quality writer for the book readers actually want to read instead of avoid?

Merlyn - Jul 22, 2021

I actually think Bendis is the one who wants to write the book this way. He's too lazy to write Naomi vol. 2 and he knows Naomi is not a big enough character to generate sales so he kills two birds with one stone: he writes Naomi inside the JL book which normally sells pretty well. It is DC's fault though that they let him do whatever he wants, he's the only writer who doesn't give a crap about continuity even though his books are not Black Label.

Nightwing #82

By: Tom Taylor, Bruno Redondo
Released: Jul 21, 2021

Melinda Zucco’s connection to the man who killed Dick Grayson’s parents wasn’t a surprise to the Blüdhaven hero, but what the former Robin discovers about Melinda’s ties to the Flying Graysons leaves the usually upbeat detective speechless.

Psycamorean - Jul 20, 2021

I think they're the same character, and that Jon is bland no matter his age. It's perfectly fine to judge the older version of the character even if Bendis wrote him (because... PKJ writes him too, and he had his own books during future state). This younger version is just as much of a nothing character as the older version, it's just that he doesn't need to be anything more in these bland stories.

Psycamorean - Jul 20, 2021

Maybe Tom Taylor comes in and makes Jon a real boy, but that doesn't make him retroactively good here and elsewhere. I do not get the appeal of these comics, especially this one with its unnecessarily complicated structure and boring, boring plot. I feel like everytime we get one of these, Tomasi is just dusting off rejected Superman/Batman scripts and slightly tweaking them.

Someone stated here that it can't get worse than this. I beg to differ, if there's one thing I know, it can ALWAYS get worse with Bendis.
