This book doesn't quite know what it wants to be anymore and the use of the DC Universe as its backdrop already feels somewhat stale (and this is jsut the second arc).

David's arc feels quite rushed, almost immediately after we've met him and we're given a very barebones motivation for his anger, Joekr comes in and he's revealed to be an established character that hated the Joker. Feels more

After a very strong first issue, the writing here felt considerably more pedestrian. The story seems to be heading into a somewhat more "normal" and predictable (and much less interesting) direction and the aesthetic elements feel also very forced. What happened? The first issue seemed to be juggling its different elements so well, but in here it's like they don't mesh at all and the gothic elemen more

This issue fell very short of expectations because it discarded the story that was being built up until this moment.

Instead of an interesting clash between Superman, who was supposedly much more powerful and this dangerous from all the time he was in the sun and his son, we see the problem being solved without any kind of difficult and the narration still has the gall to try to pretend more
