Ya Tom kings two issue double date with Clark and Lois was probably the best two issues of his run. Which should prove why I make fun of his run the way I do.... And Batman imposter is not better then court of owls, the white knight I might give you on part but not better and the sequel while gorgeous isn't as good as 1, endgame not better then court three jokers was beautiful but a better story... no just no.

Despite the cover, this is not a PRIDE book. There are traces of Ivy's relationship with Harley but it's a rather underdeveloped subplot.

You are an idiot. The book features a lgbtq character. And it's a new series out during pride month. Sometimes people just want to read a well written story, not every lgbtq characters story has to be about their sexuality. That's boring as fuck. Grow up a 1/10 just because the book didn't focus on her being gay the entire issue? This is why a lot of comic fans can't stand people who make everything about their sexuality. Just enjoy the story. They didn't make her straight lol.

This is why you guys don't deserve any of this marketing like the "pride" stamp. You don't care about the characters at all, all you want is freaky stuff. There's pornhub for that.
