A couple of great moments. Probably the best Jon Kent moment ever, it takes things established about his character since Tomasi and even the first issue of this event, when he was thought as incompetent by Black Adam. I Guess proving himself is really important to Jon. It just feels in character and satisfying, while also being very inspiring and heroic moment.
But as a whole this issue and more

Before anything, I need those reading this to know I'm not King's biggest fan. And yes it's because of Batman and Heroes in Crisis. I haven't read anything else of his aside from Rorschach and the first 3 issues of Human Target. I know he's an EXTREMELY talented writer. I still have a hard time touching his work. I even love his first two arcs on Batman. This though...

Best review I've read on here in a very long time. I get that people are angry with King because of his run as the main Batman writer. He isn't anymore, let the hate go. I just read his Vision comic again. Utterly magnificent.

Hex - Aug 21, 2022

Thank you so much. I am glad some people have actually taken the time to read it and I really hope they enjoyed the issue as much as I did. I'm definitely trying to read more of King's work because of the bias I have. This has certainly helped erase a significant chunk of it.

This issue feels like the plot is really beginning to coalesce. After months of build up, the steps taken in this issue feel earned. I was critical of the early parts of PKJ's run, and I stand by that because this current arc sort of cements my problems with those early issues. Those issues tried to tell a higher concept story but without the methodical pacing of this arc. We were thrown into the more

Amazing Psycamorean - Aug 13, 2022

I think the story is actually very hopeful in its themes. Sure, Warworld is edgy and dark, but the point of the story is that in the face of oppression, torture, genocide and death on a planet wide scale, with little to no recourse, Superman is still a symbol for hope and is still fighting to change things.

This was a very strong issue. There's a lot of ground being laid here. We finally get MJ and Peter truly interacting for the first time in this run, and it manages to keep the mystery afloat without being annoying more than intriguing. This is something that Spencer's run had plenty of trouble with. Add another little mark on the chart of differentiation between this run and Spencer's.

I've been anticipating this issue for a while. I didn't read any of Tynion's run and I bailed early on into King's run. I'm sure there is a bit of catching up to do but I'm also generally aware of where the Dark Knight stands right now.

The old frame-up plot is literally 100 years old in illustrated stories.
I can't even count the number of times it was done to Batman.
But Canadian writer Chip Zdarsky and some reviewers believe it is fresh, new, and innovative.

This is cool. It brings back ideas from the 80s runs like Stern/Byrne's and JMD's( there were even some references to that).

Slott is just washed out these days. He used his good ideas about the universe already. I appreciate his writing style and his troupes, but that's no longer that fresh either. His She-hulk has a lot of heart and love for the universe, brings a lot of freshness and he just knew what he wanted with the book, his mighty avengers is one of my favorite modern avengers and his spider-man really tried to do different things with character by really pushing him.

Criminology. - May 31, 2022

If he is inspired, he is a very enjoyable and fun writer. I still think he is very creative, but these days he can't keep up with his creativity, so he can't get the most out of his ideas.
