Wow, this one was bad. I mean, I expected that but I thought since they brought Coipel, Ridley would try something better but nope. Let's just see some lines here.

"He can't see behind my mask. Or that I've appropriated a mask he helped create" YES, Ridley, thank you. This coming just after talking about sincerity is incredibly ironic but I loved it. At least deep down he knows he's doi more

And on a note ,Toonstrack , there are people who have occupations, maybe you don't understand that the world revolves beyond comics. You know, school, work, friends. If you look out the window, you will see a real world outside, where normal people live and engage in various activities.

Uff this could be something interesting, but they got lost in some point here, DC needs to do something, this type of writing is the reason why DC's comics are not reaching the real clients that is the young adult public, it is good to see Red Hood back with his suit and weapons, from there on out there is not much to see.

Damian's characterization was good, smug and haughty. But the environment was exaggerated, but there is a sense, it is his own series.

There is a whole chase on the rooftops of Corto Maltese. The art is not very good, sometimes Corto Maltese looks seems that Gotham, there are vignettes where the characters look somewhat deformed.

As expected it is a somewhat pointle more
