Other than Batwoman's story which was pretty good and Dreamer's which was just okay, all the others were atrociously bad with a special mention for Sina Grace who shouldn't EVER write a comic book. The art wasn't very good either.

I do have a question: why does the DC logo on this book have all those extra-colors? The LGBT flag is obvious, the trans flag I can get too (even though the " more

As someone who loved Tom King's run on Batman and had to be disappointed by the decision he wouldn't get to tell his full Batman story, and honestly I have been very indifferent with Tynion IV's take on him so far... I loved this. The presentation was amazing, from the way the chapters are introduced, to the great looking art and costumes.

This may be a polarizing comic, but it's King's Batman, you probably either love it or hate it. It's the conclusion to his run. My two cents? I love it. It's a story that is building in my mind since that amazing Annual #2.

If you don't like Bat/Cat love story, this isn't your cup of tea. But for me it's the true end of an amazing run that I will always remember. I liked the prem more

Great work by Donny Cates, this is the first comic I read by him and my god the man is for sure on the way to become one of the greats. He truly understands Thor. He knows how to grab you, he knows how to pay homage to the past, respect the legacy of not only the character but his felow writers. Nic Klein goes for the ride and paints us the picture in Donny's mind. It's a great look for Thor more

Wasn't sure if I was going to like this, but it's a really solid debut and my favorite book this week. Johns and Frank are a great creative team and I thought this first issue got the series off to a great start.
Geiger's story is compelling and Johns tells us just enough that we understand what's going on, with more to be revealed as we see other parts of this crazy post-apocalyptic world a more
