Chicks telling their version of what men call dick and fart jokes for an entire comic. Boom Boom makes her tits explode for gods sake. The dirty humor felt more forced in this issue than in the others but I can't say I hate it. If you get shit faced and read it you'll enjoy it more than if your sober. Not much more tho.

I'd like to say I feel some level of relief that this series has now met its end, but in all honesty, I'm still left baffled by how such a story was ever allowed to proceed on the course that it did. I was hoping we would get some sort of explanation into why this was worth putting the Dark Crisis title on it, but the fact of that matter remains that this series has absolutely nothing to do with more
