This continues to be my favorite book. I am in love with tynion's batman run and so far the fear state storyline looks like he might be going out on top. I love a book that develops a story and has depth I also really like when there is a good amount of dialogue. Tynion is a master at all these things his batman books have an incredible amount of depth emotion and intrigue. The artwork is stunning more

Man, King's dialogue is just atrocious. I know what he's going for. I can feel the feelings. But you don't need to rely so much on repetition and platitudes, you know? That's my biggest issue here. If that were better, and if the kid were less annoying, this would be a solid comic. But as it is, it just makes Superman sound... how do I say this nicely? Socially-challenged? It's real bad, you guys.

It was actually quite a good issue for a tie-in event.
The rationalization of Nightwing coming to Gotham actually made sense, and the team-up with Batman was fun and even heartwarming.
My main problem was with the art. Redondo's art was perfect in the previous arc, and he was greatly missed here.
But overall, it was a surprisingly good issue.

Fear State is the most on-target topical comic on the stands today: the media pushing bs so the gov can control the masses through fear. It’s clear as day in the flashback where Scarecrow reveals his plan to Ghostmaker. He even goes so far as to say Silicon Valley was salivating at the idea.

While I cannot deny, this is not the best DC event i've read. This was really interesting from start to finish and wrapped up really well. This story had many plots going on at once and managed to tie them up nicely and did not force a happy ending.

Of all the new characters introduced by JT4 during his run, Miracle Molly has been arguably the most unique. And that's something that fits her character immensely.

The first page has me already disgusted at the division and wokeness that Cantwell continues to push in this comic. So Sam Wilson, one of Steve Rogers' best friends, if not a brother, says to Steve that he can't "validate" Steve because he PROBABLY is a descendant of slave owners. Again, let me it make clear: out of two people who have nothing but respect for each other and are as close as brother more

Okay, so can you please elaborate further on your problems with the first page? You're unhappy that Sam Wilson says people can't validate Steve Rogers because he might be a descendent of slave owners. Is that true?

Merlyn - Sep 22, 2021

I'm unhappy that Sam and Steve, two best friends, two people who have been through so much are put by Cantwell in a position where Sam is saying to Steve that he can't validate him because of what his ancestors may have done. Do you realize how poisonous of a world view that it? To blame one of your best friends for something one of his ancestors MAY have done hundreds of years ago? It's frivolous and frankly, it's pretty racist too.
