I love everything about this comic book, and this issue is just perfect. From the writing to the drawns, every little thing work together in harmony to bring life this brilliant issue. And the Heartless arc make me very curious about what happening next. The best comic book Taylor is writing in the moment.

Just loved the issue. It was so fast in a good way - I mean, I was really afraid that Taylor would start this next arc so slow, and, in the same time, advance nothing with the story. But no! The writing is smart, talk about everything and has no holes in it. Just don't liked the art, as usuall.

I have read this issue expecting nothing but the worst, but actually I kinda liked it a lot. It's fun, have a beautiful art and Bendis is clearly trying to control his "bendialogues". I will definitely will read the next - now more excited.

This issue was definitely better than the first one of this run. Art was great in the most part, and all Lex and Abyss story let me very interested in the reading. Can't wait for next issue, and to see Lex and Bruce working together - it has potential to be very chaotic in a good way.

Another cool issue. The art is beautiful, and I can see what Taylor is doing here: don't like King Jefferson dying at first, but then it became clear, that the prophecy is happening even through Zala'd anger. I really do appreciate when characters, trying to avoid a prophecy, ended up fulfilling it.

War is on the horizon as a series of assassinations has rocked the lands. The Kingdom of Storms is gathering its allies with eyes on the destruction of Kal-El and his family. What secret does the Dark Knight learn that could be the key to everything?

Really liked this issue. There's something I was missing a little in DC stories: good support characters. I enjoyed how Lois, Robin and Jay are there to support Jon, doing things he can't. And the story is great, our new Superman doesn't just throw punches, but already try another ways to save the day. Just not a 10 because I don't like the art.

I really don't know where King's going with this story anymore. I mean, some parts really works well separately, but not as one issue. Is just... strange. I don't know how to explain properly. About Sharp's art, some pages are incredibles, others are ugly. It seems like normal to him these days.

This was not a simple comic book. It was a narrative class by Bruno Redondo. Taylor's script was very cool, putting Nightwing ready to battle for the soul of Bludhaven, but the sequential art is the very charm of this issue. And Bitewing! I loved it!

Now that billionaire Dick Grayson has publicly dedicated his funds to save Blüdhaven, he's a wanted man-and that's why he finds hired killers breaking in to steal his dog, Haley!
