This series has been such a tightly wound treat. Fornes art and Stewart’s muted color choices have done yeoman’s work in making this one of the best looking books this year. Fornes is reaching that must-buy level of status for me and King’s scripting choices really help him shine. The subtlety and confidence King had telling this story was apparent. The way the detective works through the ca more

At its core, this issue is retconning away the worst of Sins Past and all the related storylines. That's great. I'm very glad about that. I really don't know what to expect from the final issue of this run. The two week wait will be hard, assuming the spoilers don't come out ahead of time. I'm kind of dreading explaining this issue to my friends when they read it and only get like half of it. So.. more

Well, Kindred does say "this final form" in reference to the different incarnations of Sarah and Gabriel, as in the body he's possessed in the moment, which is Sarah's.

Psycamorean - Sep 9, 2021

I actually think there are two Kindreds. Unless the stuff with Spider-Man is happening at a different time. If it's not, Kindred has possessed both Sarah and Gabriel.

I'm so confused right now. I am also very confused even thinking how Spencer will wrap up everything in the next issue. Because there is so much to wrap up now. Final confrontation with Kindred and there are currently so many players there, Strange's hijacks with Mephisto, some kind of ending to this, what happens to the 35 villains who are in the graveyard unconscious, what happens after this to more

"Stupid borders"

Superman is not doing enough.

Sigh.

Superman is the greatest superhero in fiction. Period. And his best "power" is the fact that he knows he is not a god, that despite his awesome power he has no right to impose his will on others (something Jon seems keen on doing). The notion that he is not doing enough is at best: dumb. At worst: it's disrespect more

The perfect end. Explosive, emotional, thought provoking. Everything that should belong in a meaningful Daredevil run in just 5 issues is amazing. I would have loved to see this continue but as it's just an origin story, you can't ask for better. Hell's Kitchen belongs to Matt Murdock.

This is the Batman: Year One of Daredevil. I know that the same team did Born Again and I absolutely love that series but in terms of origins, this hits that same way that Year One did. Slight changes to the overall origin that can and have been retconned but it's solid. This is the height of Romita's talent and it's heartbreaking to see where he is now after this book.

This is the best Jon has been written since Super Sons, and it's a perfect introduction to a new Superman for a new generation.

People will have issues with the politics of this, but for me, I love it. It's clear what Tom Taylor wants Superman to be and what he should do. It's inspiring, and really brings a lot of character and depth to a comic book character that is a legacy character. It helps to separate him from Clark, showing his thinking and his ideals. The art is also so good. I really don't know what else to s more

It’s unfortunate that people that love Superman will be put off by politics that represent what Superman has stood for since Action Comics #1’ but I agree that some will. I enjoyed your review.

Ben Reilly - Aug 26, 2021

@Batman Jones My possibly unpopular opinion: If someone lets their own personal views dictate the quality of a comic, it's an example of bias. Good reviews on comics should be unbiased regardless of your views (political, religious, etc.). Good reviews should focus on the craft of the comic and how well the creative team told the story.

A little too similar to DCeased for me in the way that it's a post apocalyptic story that has a lot of the action and plot explained through text boxes that lead to the speaker at the end.

Another solid issue into Tom Taylor and Bruno Redondo's Nightwing!

In this issue, we get to see the origin of Melinda Zucco. In all honesty, I don't think this retcons or does harm to John Grayson. I think this further shows how good of a man and father he's been to Dick. He just happened to be in a relationship with someone prior to more
