This is literally the eleventh hour and it works great, in the Gotham story, the action ramps up, but the twists and turns keep coming up and Barbara's team will have to face Nightwing. Green Arrow's story is a bit more low-stakes, yet it looks like it's the one carrying more hope.

Another good one. This side-story has been steadingly getting better with each and every issue that passes. Mary Marvel continues to be, by far, the most interesting character in this story and putting her fun and innocent (yet mature whenever necessary) personality in contrast with the horror story backdrop works very, very well.

And the best part is that it does so in ways that earn more

I really like how Mary is being written in this. She's hopeful, altrustic, has that old school Golden Age trustfulness with everybody and the same time she's serious, independent, mature, knows perfectly well how terrible the situation is and the kind of terrible people she's had to work with.

And her scene with Billy felt like something out of a Stephen King story in the best ways.

This was very good again. This series is ending soon and it's been a wild ride. We finally get into Gotham.

After what I thought was a bit of a haphazardly written end of the first arc and a good but otherwise forgettaable denoument in issue 6, we go back to this series and we get a very strong start of a new arc.

The humour works well because it doesn't undercut the drama and drama works well precisely because it's contrasted with the colorful settting.

First of all, please DC, continue that Nightwing prequel story with the same creative team because wow! That backup was excellent, both Vieceli’s writing and Haining’s art. I loved that, despite how short it was (reading both parts) everyone was in-character, the betrayal hit hard and it was presented with a good level of intrigue.

Well this was a perfect low stakes "calm-before-the-storm" issue. I loved how all the characters are set, not jsut their external missions, but also their internal conflicts. I'm specially curious about Kara, who literally has the weight of the world on her shoulders, yet seems to be unconvinced and the story implies, via Ryan Choi, that there's something else in play.
