This is absolute trash. Wonder Woman yelling about destroyed milk company. It's so childish it borders on satire. And since it's not satire it's just trash.

Wow.

Just wow. By far the best issue in the whole event. Rosenberg blew Tynion out of the water. I never thought I would write it.

It's explosive, way more cohesive and the art finally pays off instead of being irritating like in first issue. Since Matthew doesn't have to explain some nonsensical parts Tynion wrote hismelf i to the corner with this tie in can focus on FUN. more

It's weird to say but Rosenberg did a much better job on All Out War than Tynion on main title.

In essence it's a generic story that isn't bad. And it's a good thing from DC these days. General premise, general characters, general predictable outcome of two lovers. Makes little sense and zero explanation why some vampires are completely evil and the others comoeltly good, but who cares more

Surprisingly really good book. The dynamic and sense of family bond between the Dynamic Duo is off the charts.

Unlike main Batman title, Bruce is capable and not in need of Catnip all the time. Guess outside Batgirls, Batman sidekick titles are the best what his mythos have to offer currently. Kudos for that and for Robin.

Robin & Batman #1

By: Jeff Lemire, Dustin Nguyen

The legendary story of Batman and Robin has reached nearly mythic proportions: the crime-fighting Dynamic Duo, always one step ahead of the criminals they pursue and never meeting a case too big. This isn’t that story. This is the story of a young Dick Grayson, newly orphaned, struggling to find his way in a strange, difficult, dark new world…T...

The only good thing about is the fact we are closing to the end. And Emanuela Lupacchino art.

It was cringeworthy, so boring and predictable. Throwing this men are bad in every issue gets just that cringworthy. Doesnt matter if its a satyr, elf king, Thor or ofcourse Wonder Man. Diana needs to throw some one liner about patriarchy in every issue. If the stories were at least connected a more

https://www.comichron.com/monthlycomicssales/2021/2021-06.html What started as a normal 35k run peaked at 773 thanks to well sex, dropped to 27 on 774. July predictions are not yet complete. But WW according to presales not even yet registered https://www.comichron.com/monthlycomicssales/2021/2021-07.html Lets be realistic here. 775,6,7 will be even lower. Many people shitted on neo Gotham and Cyberpunk vibe of Tynion's Batman. But one thijg was certain. Dude made the sales almost double.

So go real Sensational and quit acting like you have some inside scoop, or know better. There are other Wonder Woman stories for you. Quoting sales and acting like you understand the industry is weak, and you’re clearly hurt by something else.

Going downhill is an understatement. No wonder people care little for Diana's title. And sales show it. No wonder Yara is such a hit. Because she is written as a compelling character in a settings we actually give a damn about. And acts accordingly to her character.

It was ok. At least Moore is gone for an issue or two.

The lame excuse with magically crafted second blade was hard to accept. Especially if Diana herself blocked the original with her bare hands. The Greek mythos seem bland here compared to Nordic ones. And to think it's her background.

Diana still acts weird. It's way better than Sonja or Conan that she was before but the more

Enter Olympus. Diana is finally in the right afterlife, but things aren’t as they are supposed to be. The mystery is set up quite well. Janus is an intriguing villain, and the appearance of one of them is familiar to readers of this run.

Instead of Travis Moore (who will return in September), Andy MacDonald is on art. While the art is a bit of a step down in quality – especially whe more

@Abrakadabra: I'm sorry, but I have no idea what you are talking about. When I wrote "I can't wait to see who the big bad is" I was refering to the backup by Bellaire and Ganucheau. @WeirdScienceJim: That's valid. Personally I've seen enough of Olympus over the years that its destruction works for me here without having to see the gods prior to their demise.

Weird Science Jim - Jul 12, 2021

My point wasn’t about seeing them prior, my point is that Olympus has been destroyed in the Wonder Woman book for almost 4 years now - this isn’t new
