The art is phenomenal. This second issue though lacks the intrigue I felt from the first issue. Nonetheless enjoying it very much and can't wait for #3!

I liked DC vs Vampires and All-Out War, I have all the issues so I figured this should be good since Matthew Rosenburg wrote it. Nope, garbage, no idea what is going on here. Lame art, writing is atrocious. The next issue sucks just as much.

Ooooff! This issue jumped the shark!


I enjoyed issue #1 and #2, but this issue turned me off completely. The Joker getting a bullet in the head, shot multiple times in the chest area (as he shows to the doctor he holds hostage to help him), falls in cold ocean water, then he gets the bullet removed from his head with no anesthesia.

Finally being the sole defender of this comic when it was announced has paid off. This comic is a quintessential example of why you should never let meta-reading and cynicism overtake you as a comic book fan. It leads to you missing out.

Well said. I've always been fascinated with the Norman Osborne character. A peer into the mind of this particular version of his character is very interesting. Christopher Cantwell is near enough the top Marvel writer at the moment. His Iron Man series, just wow.

Toonstrack - Nov 21, 2022

Agreee to both comments. Cantwell has few misses. His stories feel classic but modern.

This issue of Minor Threats felt like a faster read compared to the last two issues which were filled with plenty of writing. That is not a bad thing, this issue had more action. Which is weird to say because the last two had some great action too.

Really good story, can't wait for the next issue!

Geoff Johns does an excellent job giving the cartoonist Muddy a real-life feel. Then bringing Junkyard Joe back in makes it a unique tale for sure!

Definitely the top issue of this series, plenty of great moments to absorb in #10!

Still my only grief is, why Nightwing as the King of Vampires? This has not been answered, and just does not fit Nightwing's character to me. I don't like him as the villain, but I don't know that is me.

Nonetheless great series for crazy vampire stuff!
