The only thing stopping me from liking this more than I do is the timing. Spurrier already wrote the perfect return of Hellblazer and he deserves more, however this is still a solid Hellblazer story in its own right.

This issue was a lot better than the first one.

Tom King's story was very somber in tone like his other work on Batman, which I enjoy. Mitch Gerads' Batman really looks incredible in B&W.

Sophie Campbell's story made really neat use of the palette.

Gabriel Hardman & Corinna Bechko's was just okay. The weakest of the bunch.

Dual by Dustin Weaver was very more

The best of the bunch was Tynion IV and Trad Moore's story. Taking a look at Batman as a living myth from a henchman's perspective isn't entirely new, but it was executed well here and the layouts were great.

Williams was basically a PSA. Not much to say about it.

Dini's was just okay, and I say that as a Dini fan.

Emma Rios' story was beautiful visually, but left more

There was like a 22 year gap between this and the second Ambush Bug series and somehow Giffen still had it. It's probably the weakest of the 3, but enjoyable in a similar way. Ignore the 2009 critics. They were too busy trying to be serious like everything else in 2009.

I think they're the same character, and that Jon is bland no matter his age. It's perfectly fine to judge the older version of the character even if Bendis wrote him (because... PKJ writes him too, and he had his own books during future state). This younger version is just as much of a nothing character as the older version, it's just that he doesn't need to be anything more in these bland stories.

Psycamorean - Jul 20, 2021

Maybe Tom Taylor comes in and makes Jon a real boy, but that doesn't make him retroactively good here and elsewhere. I do not get the appeal of these comics, especially this one with its unnecessarily complicated structure and boring, boring plot. I feel like everytime we get one of these, Tomasi is just dusting off rejected Superman/Batman scripts and slightly tweaking them.

This was a nice surprise to me. Who thought they would ever explain how Man-Bat came to be in JL Dark? The attention to detail by having Batman in his Rebirth costume is also really cool. I think Dave Wielgosz is an underrated writer who needs to be put on more ongoings, a lot of his digital first stuff has been pretty solid.
