I tend to like Spider-Man when Slott decides to push the envelope. I enjoyed the Superior run far more than I thought I would because it genuinely brought a new element to the Spider-Man mythos. I thought Parker Industries was a fun take on how tech company founders are but there is so much back-treading this issue that I pretty much feel like all the development from the past volume was a waste o more

Kind of ended with a thud. The X-men show up for no reason other than a fan service cameo and the mecha-goblin thing was designed like a bad Megazord from Power Rangers. If it wasn't for the intriguing premise of the next story arc fast-forward 8 years, I would honestly drop this title from my pull. It's not a terrible title but I can definitely live without it.

I can't help but think Wonder Woman has lost its direction after Rucka stepped off. I will never change my mind about Azzarello's run. While people to this day gripe about changing Diana's origin, it was one of the most focused and consistent runs I've read in the past decade from the big two. More impressive was the fact that a coherent epic was told in the span of three years without any egregio more

Apparently they like pancakes... This title betrays the fact that Rebirth while initially brilliant is getting a little stale. New creative teams can't hurt at this point. Ditto for the Flash, Williamson has done a tremendous job but the title itself needs some fresh elements.

A lot of nonsense in this story arc but having the Joker make that sacrifice to save Batman and keep what he stands for intact almost makes him heroic...
